This article discusses the possibility of From Me to You: Kimi ni Todoke Season 2 and the renewed or canceled status of the live-action Netflix series.
From Me to You: Kimi ni Todoke is a live-action adaptation of the beloved manga series written and illustrated by Karuho Shiina. This is far from the first adaptation of the material, which has already been translated into an anime series, which ran for two seasons, and a live-action feature film.
Here’s a quote from our review:
And yet that’s the thing about popular stories, isn’t it – they’re usually popular for a reason. They’re good. People care about the characters and their plights. Sawako, a surprisingly peppy and good-natured high-school student cruelly nicknamed “Sadako” by her peers because of her resemblance to the long-haired ghoul from The Ring, is compelling because she is, fundamentally, a decent person.
The story has enjoyed immense popularity in all its forms and there’s no reason to believe the Netflix version will be any different. But what about the show’s potential future? Here’s everything we know.
Will there be a Season 2 of From Me to You: Kimi ni Todoke on Netflix?
Renewed or canceled status: TBC
At the time of writing From Me to You: Kimi ni Todoke has not been renewed for a second season.
This isn’t surprising so soon after the show’s release. However, all signs point to the show not being continued beyond this point.
Crucially, the 12-episode season adapts all the arcs of the manga and tells a complete story. Without any more source material to draw from, continuing the story beyond this point would require coming up with entirely new storylines for the characters. While this isn’t entirely out of the question, it’s unlikely, and fans may not take well to the idea.
On that note, while this live-action version will surely be popular among fans of the story, it’s likely that they have no expectation of further seasons given the completeness of this single outing and the satisfying ending.
Anything can happen, but our educated guess will be that this is the last we see of From Me to You: Kimi ni Todoke — at least until the next time it’s adapted.

You say that all the source material has been covered, but that is NOT true, which means you haven’t actually done the research. The manga continues with them in University. It focuses a lot on Sawako and Kurumi’s journey in becoming best friends, both wanting to be teachers and helping each other out, with Kazehaya getting a little jeallous. There’s also a little spin-off from Kurumi’s point of view, where she gets to find some love too. And it would actually be awesome if we could get at least one adaptation that covers the entire arcs, without always stopping at the end of High School. So much still happens, it’s a real shame.
