The first installment of Dragon’s Dogma plummeted on Netflix on Sept. 17, 2020. However, it might be a long wait before fans can see Dragon’s Dogma Season 2 arriving on Netflix.
Dragon’s Dogma is a television screen adaptation of Capcom’s action role-playing hack-and-slash video game. It is an original anime filled with adventure and dark fantasy. However, not much has been said about the renewal of Dragon’s Dogma Season 2 returning to Netflix.
Netflix, on the other hand, usually does not announce anime series renewals so soon after its debut in their streaming channel. Aside from the fact that it takes more than a year to complete a whole animated series, the premier of the first installment did not get the expected viewership.

In the second installment, Ethan should be very careful in selecting the next Arisen. The next Arisen should be very strong and willful enough to fight the urges of revenge and the other deadly sins. Thus, if the Arisen is strong enough, he will break the cycle, as well as lift the curse.
Ethan will become the new dragon because he used his revenge to kill it, consequently, repeating the cycle. Besides, he will join the next chosen arisen and the Pawn. The Pawn is a demon who becomes the Arisen’s protector.
Cast and release date
Although Netflix remains silent on the release date, fans are hopeful that they won’t have to wait so long. On a side note, some viewers would play the series over and over again to increase its viewership rates. This will help the series to easily get a renewal status on Netflix.
As of the moment, the showrunners have not yet announced the cast. However, the following voice actors should return:
- Greg Chun
- Erica Mendez
- Cristina Vee
- David Lodge
