Is the source material sufficient for season 2?
The manga has 7 volumes to date, out of which 4 volumes were adapted in season 1. Here the catch comes in; the makers might be wondering about the availability of the source for a sequel. But we know that the manga was left unfinished after the death of Daisuke Sato. There are chances that the makers could extract the details from the remaining three volumes for season 2.
Instead of all this, the fans are still wondering whether season 2 would arrive or if it would be dropped? For the answers, we have to wait for the official announcement. If we consider that the makers would come to continue, it would probably hit somewhere around 2022 or 2023. These are mere guesses, which will be cleared after the announcements.
The Cast of HighSchool of the Dead Season 2
The fans enjoyed season 1. Along with that, the performance of the cast was admired all over. There is a high chance that all the cast members may reprise their roles. However, some characters could be replaced because of the time limits and commitments. At this point, it is pretty tough to predict the exact details. But as predicted, most of the characters will have a comeback in the anime if the season happens.
- Junichi Suwabe as Takashi Komuro
- Eri Kitamura as Saya Takagi

The Plotline of HighSchool of the Dead Season 2
We know that the makers have not given green signals till now either on the renewal or cancellation of the show. It has been many years, but we expect that the story would continue from where it left. For now, it becomes pretty tricky to predict the plot of season 2. But we have connected some dots and extracted the details from season 1.
In the finale, we saw that Takashi’s group left the mall because of some uncertain instances. But all the plans got reversed. The group stuck, but later the emergency doors opened, which sighed relief to them. Now it would be exciting to see how they will face all the challenges of their life. The exact details are kept hidden, but one thing is assured that we will get a good storyline if season 2 comes in the frame. So yes, we should wait for the anime to take on the thrilling ride…
There is no trailer for season 2. The anime did not get approval from the makers. It has been a long time, but we have to wait for more for the story to continue. We will update the space if anything comes out of Highschool of the Dead Season 2.
