POP TEAM EPIC SEASON 2; WHEN IS THIS ELEMENT GOING TO PREMIERE ON?
The first season can be said as more than a decent success. But what about season 2? Is there any chance?
The first season had 12 episodes in all, which were aired from January 7, 2018, till the 25th of March of the same year. After the ending of season 1, the anime also saw a special episode within less than a week, aired by Kamikaze Douglas productions itself. There had been already several spin-offs shows of this anime. The three-episode Pop Team Epic specials, the single episode of Ninja Batman x Pop Team Epic Kindan no collab CM Eizou Kaikin!, and a single episode of Original net animation (ONA) unusual titled Pop Team Epic Kitten. However, despite all these spin-offs creations, there’s still no declaration and confirmation of the next season yet.
There’s still hope among fans about the revelation of the show’s next franchise, but it seems to be an undiscussed topic among the producers yet. However, taking into consideration the previous season’s success, the next one will be on the screen sooner or later. It’s still around two years of the 1st season of Pop Team Epic premiered, and hence there’s no point to concern about the next. The producers may announce the dates till the end of 2020 if not, then will obviously in 2021 at some point. If it further delayed over 2021, then fans should assume a gradual decrease in chances for the creation of the same. We should also not neglect the loose ends of the first season, and so much of the plots that can be continued as only a little portion of the story in manga is covered in 1st season and hence gives a good reason for the beginning of 2nd season.
