Will there be a Romantic Killer Season 2 on Netflix?

The Netflix anime Romantic Killer is adapted from Wataru Momose’s manga of the same name and debuted on Netflix on October 27, 2022, with a 12-episode first season. It was one of the most popular anime series on Netflix in 2022, yet it has still not been renewed for Season 2.

Here’s the manga’s official synopsis, which is reflected in the show:

High schooler Anzu Hoshino has a great life. Every day she plays video games, pigs out on snacks, and pets her beloved cat. But this blissful existence is turned into a confusing mess when a magical creature transports her to an altered reality bereft of her favorite things.

The idea is that Anzu is anti-romance but is forced through these circumstances to consider becoming romantically involved with various potential suitors, a dynamic that forms the bulk of the first season. Here’s everything we know about the show’s potential future.

January 27th, 2024 Update

In 2024, there’s still no update from Netflix or the studio DOMERICA about the status of Romantic Killer. We may never get an official confirmation until the second season is announced by a trailer or poster. However, it’s not looking for the fans patiently for news. Sometimes, there’s no news at all, which is usually a bad thing.

October 27th, 2022 Update

While there doesn’t seem to have been any official confirmation, early signs point towards Romantic Killer being renewed for a second season. This is for several reasons.

One is that Netflix has a good history of renewing its original anime series. Shows like 7 SeedsAggretsukoand Baki have all received multiple seasons. Another is that the Romantic Killer ending is far from conclusive — on the contrary, it actively sets up a second season with much higher stakes.

And thirdly, there are four full volumes of the manga, only two of which have been translated and officially released in English. That suggests there is much more of the story still to be told.

If Romantic Killer somehow completely flops, of course, the likelihood of renewal will also plummet. But given the show has a built-in fanbase coming over from the manga, the chances of that are low.

What might Romantic Killer Season 2 be about?

A second season would be likely to carry on directly from the end of the first, with Anzu trying to navigate her relationship with the boys while dealing with the much higher stakes imposed on her by Riri’s return. That ticking-clock device and the erosion of Ansu’s desires — again! — would provide a solid motivation for her to reexamine her relationships with Tsukasa, Junta, and Hijiri.
