Blue Lock Season 2: Release Date, Trailer, Story, and More

In Short
  • The release date and time of Blue Lock Season 2 is confirmed to be October 5, 2024, at 11:30 PM JST.
  • It has been confirmed that the second season of Blue Lock will only include a total of 14 episodes.
  • The upcoming season is expected to adapt the remainder of Third Selection arc, along with the U-20 arc.

If you ask me about the best sports anime of the modern generation, Blue Lock easily takes the win in my books. With an incredible first season, Blue Lock showed how it’s miles ahead of every other sports anime and is in a league of its own. The second season was announced already, and now that we have the release for its sequel, we have everything you need to know about Blue Lock Season 2.

When is Blue Lock Season 2 Coming Out?

In an official X post, the production staff has officially announced that Blue Lock Season 2 is set to premiere on October 5, 2024, at 11:30 PM JST on TV Asahi network (IMAnimation) in Japan. Like the previous season, we can expect Crunchyroll and Netflix to simulcast the anime series; the availability and timings might vary based on your region.

How Many Episodes Will Blue Lock Season 2 Have?

The first season of Blue Lock had a total of 24 episodes. While we expected another big season, it isn’t the case. It has been revealed that Blue Lock Season 2 is listed for 14 episodes. This is due to the fact that the second season will focus primarily on one arc — the U-20 arc. You can learn more about the arcs that will be adapted for season 2 below.

Based on the episode count, we expect Blue Lock season 2 to cover the following arcs:

  • Third Selection arc (latter half, Chapters 95 to 108)
  • Blue Lock U-20 Arc (entire arc, Chapters 109 to 151)
  • Neo-Egoist League Arc (only the first chapter, possibly)

If you haven’t already witnessed the magic that’s about to unfold, we suggest reading the manga from where Blue Lock Season 1 ended. Our guide will help you locate the chapter from which you should start reading ahead of its release later this year.

Along with the main roster of players that we’ve already been introduced to, we will see many new faces from Japan’s U-20 team in the Blue Lock anime. The voice cast of two new players was also revealed; others will be revealed later. Two of the new voice actors are:

  • Oliver Aiku by Satoshi Hino (Rengoku from Demon Slayer and Momonga in Overlord)
  • Shuto Sendo by Akihisa Wakayama (Regis in Noblesse and Ryuuji in Classroom of the Elite)

The U-20 Arc is one of my all-time favorites in Blue Lock, and I’m so excited for the anime fandom to see it get animated in the upcoming season. The entirety of the U-20 arc should be animated this season, along with a tease for the Neo-Egoist League arc towards the end.

That said, are you excited for the second season of Blue Lock? Let us know in the comments below.
