Although three years past the first season aired on our screen, the desire for a second season of Made in Abyss persists among fans. Moreover, early this year, Kinema Citrus studio came up with a movie adaptation of the anime. The worldwide airing of the movie is taking time due to Covid-19, but fans in Japan enjoyed every bit of it.
The sequel movie, in Its ending scene, mentioned, “To be continued”. Hence the prospects of Made in Abyss Season 2 airing gets a green signal.
Also, a tweet of a poster from season 2 of the manga anime on the official Twitter account of MIA further made the indications obvious. Therefore, the Made in Abyss season 2 is set to release in 2022 and is confirmed.
In this article, you will read every detail surrounding the premiering of Made in Abyss Season 2 in 2022.
What Do We Know About the Makers of Made in Abyss Season 2?
Masayuki Kojima is the director of the anime series, and Hideyuki Kurata wrote it. Also, Kevin Penkin is the composer of the various soundtrack that follows in the anime.
Moreover, the iconic and popular anime with cute characters exploring a lost civilization inside a giant pit-hole is originally derived from a Japanese manga series. Akihito Tsukushi is the writer and illustrator of the manga series and is published in Takeshobo’s digital publication of a web-comic named Gamma since 2012. The web-comic is compiled into nine Takobon volumes. Kazuchika Kise contributed to the character designing part.
Later, in 2015 Kinema Citrus studio adapted the manga as an anime series, aired between July 7 to September 17, 2017.
Therefore the sequel movie of the hit fantasy anime included the same creators from the first season of the anime. Also, a video game developed by Spike Chunsoft will make its release in 2022, which further broadens the chances of a second season of Made in Abyss. So far, we don’t know anything about the makers of season 2, but we can expect the same names are collaborating again.
What is the Plot of Made in Abyss?
The story of the popular anime series is about an orphaned girl Riko, from the Belchero orphanage in Orth town. There is a giant pit hole or cave in the town centre, the Abyss containing many artefacts and historical evidence from a past civilization.
The Abyss is quite famous among Cave Raiders, but the mist-filled hazy Abyss carries dangerous consequences. The Cave Raiders explore the Abyss filled with antique remnants, but only a few can survive the Curse of the Abyss. Only in rare cases the Cave Raiders can return from the mysterious depths of the Abyss. Riko’s mother is one of the survivors and has earned the title of White Washer for her legendary expedition inside the Abyss. Unfortunately, she has also disappeared into the Abyss.
Therefore, Riko also aspires to be a White Whistle someday, following the path of her mother. She met a Human-like Robot named Reg. Riko and her friend, along with Reg, start their quest inside the Abyss. A floating balloon on the surface of the Abyss carried with itself the news about her mother. It read that she would find her mother in the depths of the Abyss.
Thus, Riko and Reg start their descent to the end of the mysterious Abyss, searching for her long-lost mother.
After the first season, a continuation of the series as a movie Dawn of The Deep Soul featured early in this year. Now another continuation will follow in the form of another season. Let’s speculate every detail on Made in Abyss season 2. Read below.
When will Made in Abyss Season 2 Air in 2022?
So far, there is no particular release date announced for the airing of Made in Abyss Season 2. But sources have claimed that the new series will be set on your screens in early 2022. The new season will be named Made in Abyss: The Sun Blazes upon the Golden city. However, according to other sources, the series could be titled, Made in Abyss: The Golden Town of Relentless Day.
Thus between the argument of a possible title, one thing is for sure that season 2 will air in 2022. Also, there is no significant period between the sequel movie and the first season. So, a third season will possibly air in 2021.
Further, the official website of MIA had already announced another sequel in the making after the movie Dawn of the Deep soul. Contrary to this, fans are also arguing if the next sequel will be a movie adaptation like last time. However, the latest manga publications will best suit another season to carve light on all the significant characters of the story.
Thus, let’s look into other factors that can determine Season 2.

Is there enough source material available for another season of MIA, or will it be a movie adaptation?
One of the most crucial factors for another season is the abundance of manga, which is the prime source material for anime. We have to speculate in what form the next sequel will be released by Kinema Citrus production house, arguably if it will be a movie adaptation again.
The manga writer Akihito Tsukushi is still working on new chapters and releases them every month. The last one is the 8th chapter, released in 2021.
Moreover, around 61 volumes of the manga are available so far, with two sub-chapters each from chapters 42 and 46. Only chapters 1, 2, 6, 7, 18, and 23 are entirely left to be adapted in its next season. However, the sequel of the anime parts could include unused details from the rest of the manga.
Therefore, the next sequel could be the last anime adaptation based on the source material availability. Also, the author needs to pace up the writing to produce effective content that can sustain a whole series.
Storyline Made in Abyss season 2
The pace at which the story Made in Abyss excel requires at least three seasons to unfold the real secrets of the Abyss. Therefore, the question that remains inevitable is if all the depths of the Abyss reach an ending.
The Abyss is like a wormhole, where even darkness itself cannot reach. As a result, new instances transpire with the descent through each layer. Riko and Reg have to surpass each layer until the last layer, or the seventh layer, known as Maelstorm.
However, even the Maelstorm layer is the deepest point or not is not yet known to us. The story might carry on up to several other layers of the Abyss that Reco and Reg have to descend to find her mother finally. But till now, white whistles give up all hope of ever returning to the ordinary world.
And while Riko goes deeper into the Abyss, at least till the sixth layer becomes a white whistle. However, little did she knows about the scary mysteries and truth of the Abyss beyond the Sixth layer.
The story might also take a turn and centre around Riko’s expedition in the village of Narehate or the Three Sages. The ancient people of the forgotten past world have created these villages constituting humans who have faced the curse of the Abyss. These creatures are stuck in the Abyss forever into a never returning phase.
Or it may so happen that no curse exists at all in Narehate village, and Riko finds new shreds of evidence about her lost mother. Also, in season 2, there will be a unique variety of characters and creatures in the Narehatte village.
Therefore we can conclude that season 2, airing in 2022, will bring new mysteries and exciting stories. Hence, just wait and watch!
Will there be more sequels after Made in Abyss season 2?
Akihito Tsukushi is still writing Manga volumes, with its last season released in July last year. And upcoming manga volumes are still on the run. Thus there is a very big possibility that we will get to see more of the Abyss history.
Also, Kinema Studio might launch another movie as a sequel to Made in Abyss season 2. But it is quite certain that the story won’t conclude its end with only two seasons and a movie.
The cast of Made in Abyss season 2 and a new installation of characters
The voice-over artist plays a major role in engaging the audience with the characters of the series. It is also expected that we will get to see a new character and cast in MIA season 2. But for that, we will have to wait till the makers officially announce anything on that matter. However, the casting of some of the main characters from Made in Abyss is given below:
