HighSchool of the Dead was definitely one of the best zombie anime shows we’ve seen in years, and combined with unlimited action and ecchi, it is pretty wholesome.

The question is, is the HighSchool of the Dead season 2 release date confirmed? Or is it canceled once and for all? In this article, we’ll reveal all the details and possibilities.

There has been a rumor of HighSchool of the Dead getting a second season in 2022, but I don’t think it is legit. The second season has never been officially announced, and there are several reasons as well.

There is a possibility that we may never see another season of the anime, and you’ll know why soon enough.

Possibilities of HighSchool of the Dead Season 2!

As I said before, the possibility of getting HighSchool of the Dead anime is close to Zero. There are many reasons, and here they are.

  • The creator of High School of the Dead has passed away without finishing the manga
  • The artist who is working on Traige X also didn’t want to continue HoTD Author’s work out of respect
  • The manga is officially ended with only 7 volumes and the first 4 Volumes were covered in the first season. So, there is no enough material to cover the next season.

Content after HighSchool of the Dead Season and Manga Continuation!

There is actually a 22-minute OVA that doesn’t pertain to the original story, and it is worth a watch. So, if you’re dying to see more of HighSchool of the Dead, you can try it out.

If you are planning to read the manga after the first season of the anime, you can start it at Chapter 17, but unfortunately, there are only Thirty Chapters in total.

There is also a light novel titled “HighSchool of the Dead: The Last Day,” but it hasn’t yet translated into English and probably never will. It is a conclusion to the story, and if you can read Japanese, you can read it.

Conclusive Thoughts!

The bottom line of this article is we will never get the second season of HighSchool of the Dead since there is not enough content to continue it. So, I see no point in making it unless someone continues the manga (which is quite unlikely to happen).

I guess you’ll move on from it and seek other series that can replace it. So, what are your thoughts on HighSchool of the Dead season 2? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below.
