‘Darling in the FranXX’ Season 2: Is there a chance for a renewal?


It has been three years since Hiro and Zero Two graced the small screen and put everyone in awe with its bizarre love story. With the long wait, is there still a chance for fans to see Darling in the FranXX Season 2?

The science fiction romance anime is an unprecedented by-product of A1 Pictures, Studio Trigger, and ClowerWorks’ collaboration. Now, will they once again join forces to do Darling in the FranXX Season 2?

Anime’s plotline and possible Season 2 storyline

According to Epic Dope, the anime series is considered the “next modern mecha masterpiece.” The story takes fans to a distant future, where humans live in huge protected cities, called Plantations.

Here, they will be secured from the Klaxosaurs, a biological weapon made by the Klaxo Sapiens, the humanoid aliens used to live on Earth.

These cities house a group of mecha soldiers, called FranXX, led by male-female pairs of teens. These teens are only raised to operate these machines, and there is nothing they can do but this.

However, one of them is the protagonist, Hiro, and he surprisingly cannot operate the FranXX. This makes his self-esteem low until everything changes when he meets Zero Two.

This mysterious girl has the ability to pilot the FranXX even without a partner. So, they start to work together without knowing a huge danger is waiting for him.

As an original anime series without a manga source material, it is quite hard to predict what will happen next in Darling in the FranXX Season 2.

It can go in a lot of different ways. However, if it ever gets a renewal, it may continue the events after Zero Two’s battle and Hero’s fight with VIRM.

Release date rumors and possible renewal

Meanwhile, fans go wild after the alleged release of Darling in the FranXX Season 2 started circulating on TikTok.

Allegedly, the new season will drop this month, although none of its previous studios officially announce the news.

Epic Stream noted no confirmation yet about the anime’s release date, let alone a renewal itself, has been made.

It also remains to be seen if there will be a second season after the show ended with a proper conclusion, closing its door for a continuation.

Also, despite the success, one of its studios—Studio Trigger—is known for not making any sequels.

But if the producers manage to come up with a great storyline that will continue Hiro and Zero Two’s story, Darling in the FranXX Season 2 may come to fruition.
