Release date for Season 2 of the anime “Tower of God”
On the original Korean platform, “Tower of God” is considered the most profitable project. It is known that from the date of the first publication of the webtoon, it is in the lead among the rest of the comics. Moreover, the “Tower of God” has an interesting record – one of the chapters received more than 1.8 million comments. What is this talking about? Only about the popularity of the project, which with the release of anime is only gaining momentum around the world.
Despite the fact that the release of season 2 has not yet been officially announced, many critics and anime fans are predicting a quick return to the series. Most likely, the production of the new season will not take more than a year.
Therefore, our forecast (and many fans agree with this) is November 2020.
A little more math and observation. The fact that it is planned to release an anime adaptation was officially announced in August 2019 at the Seoul Comic Con conference. The first series was released on April 1, 2020. That is, the process of creating the series took 8 months. If season 2 is announced in April, then November of this year is the likely month of the premiere.
But do not forget about the coronavirus, which spoiled many plans, including in the anime world. Therefore, do not be surprised if the premiere of new series is postponed.
