Chainsaw Man’s debut season in 2022 was a very original contribution to the seinen subgenre. We received oddball characters, terrifying foes, and a very creative plotline that hides behind a few unsettling jokes. But after Chainsaw Man’s second season is released, everything will change. There will be a lot more violence and action, and it will mark a significant turning point for Denji and Pochita. Even though its release is still months away, we already know a lot about the upcoming season thanks to the manga. So, let us dig in and learn everything we currently know about Chainsaw Man season 2 to quench your curiosity!
Chainsaw Man Season 2 Release Date (Expected)
The Chainsaw Man season 2 will not be officially announced for some months. A trustworthy estimate of the same is still possible, though. The animation company behind anime like Chainsaw Man-like Attack on Titan and Jujutsu Kaisen, MAPPA, is also responsible to produce the CSM series. It is obvious that MAPPA Studios is adhering to a nearly yearly release schedule, excluding the pandemic years. So, you can anticipate the release of Chainsaw Man season 2 in late 2023 or early 2024.
Chainsaw Man Season 2 Plot
After a bloody battle at the conclusion of Chainsaw Man’s first season, Denji subdues and captures the Katana Man. The remaining men of Tokyo Special Division 4 complete that job by gathering enough parts for the gun devil, which, when assembled, moves in the direction of the devil. Akane, the woman in charge of the snake demon and the ghost devil, is also captured. Turns out, she was the one who was in touch with the gun devil and was trying to eliminate Makima’s entire squad with the help of local gangsters. Akane used the snake demon to assist her in killing herself, however, before the squad could elicit any information from her. Although Makima maintained that it might be because of her broken deal with the gun devil while she was outlining the situation for her superiors.
Story of Chainsaw Man Season 2
The first season of Chainsaw Man ended with Chapter 39 of the manga, according to the post-credit science from the episode. The Bomb Devil arc officially begins here. Reze’s hybrid form, the bomb devil, is a strong devil who serves the Soviet Union. She will initially portray herself as being passionately interested in Denji, but her true goal is to get possession of his heart, or to become Pochita (the chainsaw devil).
She is not, however, the only bad guy in the second season. We anticipate the appearance of additional international assassins in the second season’s latter half. These foreign assassins are for Denji’s heart, according to the manga. The Japanese devil hunters and the worldwide assassins then engage in an epic “Avengers: End Game”-style battle. Who will triumph? Who will perish? You’ll have to wait to learn more.
Characters in Season 2 of Chainsaw Man
There is no doubt that the main team consisting of Power, Makima, Denji, and Aki Hayakawa is sure to return. But you can also expect to see a bunch of new major characters and powerful devils of Chainsaw Man in season 2, including:
- Bomb devil hybrid
- Pig devil
- Typhoon devil
- Devil hunters from various countries
- Santa Claus
- Crossbow devil hybrid
- Cosmos fiend
- Octopus devil
- Hell devil
- Darkness devil
- Stone devil
Not to forget, the fan-favorite Pochita (aka the Chainsaw Man) is expected to make a subtle appearance as well. So, keep an eye out for that too.

Chainsaw Man Season 2 Trailers
There is no official or leaked footage of the second season of Chainsaw Man. But if the anime industry’s trends are to be believed, you can expect to get a few official clips within a few months.
Where to Watch Chainsaw Man Anime
Unless the existing streaming contracts undergo heavy changes, you will see the second season of Chainsaw Man on the same platforms as the first one:
- Crunchyroll:North America, Central America, South America, Europe, Africa, Oceania, the Middle East, and CIS
- Hulu:United States
- Animax Korea:South Korea
- Ani-One (Youtube):The rest of the world (including India)
Will Chainsaw Man’s second season be the last one?
Only the first four volumes of the manga were adapted for the first season of the anime Chainsaw Man. The first section of the manga has a total of 11 volumes. As a result, you should plan on at least a third season to fully translate the first part of the Chainsaw Man manga into anime. Moreover, there will likely be more seasons because the manga is still ongoing. Therefore, the Chainsaw Man anime will not end soon.
