“Fairy Tail” is one of those must-see classic shonen anime if you want to be properly-versed in the genre. It is one of the most successful shonen series in the world.
However, Hiro Mashima, the author of “Fairy Tail,” has long since concluded the story, having completed the original manga in 2017 and going on to his next project the next year.
His follow-up manga, “Edens Zero,” was released in 2018 to generally excellent reviews; it now has a strong 7 rating on Myanimelist, trailing just slightly behind its predecessor, which has a 7.6 rating.
Regardless of the manga’s critical reaction, “Edens Zero” was popular enough to warrant an anime adaptation directed by J.C. Staff in 2021. The first season premiered in Japan in April before being released internationally on Netflix on August 26.
Now, viewers are eager to see what happens in Season 2 of “Edens Zero.” We know about the film’s anticipated release date, cast, and narrative.
When is Edens Zero Season 2 scheduled to premiere?
At the time, neither Netflix, J.C. Staff, nor Kodansha (the publisher of the “Edens Zero” manga) has made an official announcement about a second season of the anime.
However, there is a good likelihood that this is a passing phase. What will almost certainly become Season 2 of “Edens Zero” on Netflix has already been shown in Japan in part.
It indicates that, excepting the time required to translate and dub the new episodes into English, Season 2 may begin as soon as “Edens Zero” episode 24 is completed.
Given the time gap between the Japanese and foreign releases of the anime, viewers might hope to see Season 2 of “Edens Zero” on Netflix around early 2022.
Additionally, the “Edens Zero” manga has evolved much beyond the scope of the anime, indicating that there is more than enough source material available to extend the program beyond Season 2.
Which characters appear in Edens Zero Season 2?
Unlike “Fairy Tail,” “Edens Zero” takes viewers on a sci-fi-fantasy fusion journey across the cosmos aboard the anime’s titular spacecraft. The show’s central characters are all residents of Edens Zero.
Shiki Granbell (Takuma Terashima/Sean Chiplock) is a young kid who can control gravity and embarks on a voyage with his pals in search of Mother, a space goddess (via IMDb).
Rebecca Bluegarden, a B-Cuber (a type of space-age social media influencer) who encounters Shiki on his home planet of Granbell, is his first partner.
A familiar figure from “Fairy Tail,” Happy, the magical blue cat (Rie Kugiyama/Tia Ballard), accompanies Rebecca along the voyage before meeting Shiki.
Additionally, the series featured Weisz Steiner (Hiromichi Tezuka/Brook Chalmers), E.M. Pino (Shiori Izawa/Sarah Anne Williams), a gang of androids known as the Four Shining Stars, and Homura Kogetsu (Shiki Aoki/Laura Stahl).
The majority, if not all, of these characters, are anticipated to return in Season 2. What new characters Shiki would meet on his excursions, on the other hand, have yet to be revealed to worldwide viewers.

What is Edens Zero Season 2’s plot?
The manga adaptation of “Edens Zero” is oceans ahead of its anime equivalent in plot growth. You could spoil yourself right now by reading the manga for Season 2. (assuming the anime stays faithful).
Additionally, episodes have begun broadcasting in Japan, which means that there are probably more solid spoilers available for anyone who desire to read them.
According to the “Edens Zero” Wiki, the final episode of Season 1 on Netflix covers Chapter 31 of the manga, progressing through its “Digitalis Arc.” Season 2’s episodes will continue to follow the crew of the Edens on their quest to locate the remaining Four Shining Stars members.
They will, however, face several hardships and tribulations since not every Shining Star is as they expect. It is unknown if they are friends or foes, but danger undoubtedly awaits our colorful ensemble as they explore the stars.
