The anime “Babylon” is based on the novel of the same name, released in 3 volumes, starting in 2015. Since the beginning of 2019, fans of the novel again saw their favorite characters – in the manga, which is released to this day. The popularity of “Babylon” was growing, so in the same year a series was released, which it was decided to broadcast for the first time not only in Japan, but also beyond.
Kiyotaka Suzuki acted as an anime director. But the question is: the novel was published in 3 volumes, the manga has just begun to be published, then on the basis of what to create the series?..
Release date for Season 2 of the anime “Babylon”
Anime fans know firsthand that a lot of volumes do not always guarantee several seasons of anime. If the series rating is high, then new series will be created. At the same time, how the plot will develop in the future will be decided by the director with his team. And not necessarily it will coincide with the printed material.
It is believed that if the scriptwriter and the anime director quickly take up work on the continuation of the series, then we will see new episodes in the fall of 2020. But there is no official confirmation of this yet.
