After watching Made In Abyss for the first time, fans only had one question- when is Made In Abyss Season 2 coming out?
Well, it finally came.
But before that, Kinema Citrus treated us to one of the best anime feature films, Made In Abyss: Dawn of the Deep Soul. Aside from the animation and storytelling, what made this anime film so great was the fact that it is actually canon to the anime series.
Riko, Reg, and Nanachi finally reach the 5th layer, and the film follows the 3 as they fight to go past Bondrews the Novel and reach the 6th Layer.
2 years after the film, and 5 years since the first season, we finally got Made In Abyss Season 2. And it was brutal, emotional, memorable, and more. In short, the perfect sequel to a cult anime.
So, here’s our closer look at the sequel. And a small guide on how and where to watch Made In Abyss Season 2.

While Made In Abyss is done airing on Japanese TV (AT-X, Tokyo MX, TVA, SUN, etc.), the English version has only just begun.
Adult Swim is the only English network with an airing license, and judging by the release dates of the first 3 episodes, Season 2 will be a once-a-week feature. So, your next few Sundays are sorted if you’re following the series on Adult Swim.
But what after Made In Abyss Season 2? Where does the Made In Abyss manga stand? And are there possibilities of Made In Abyss Season 3?
Made In Abyss Season 3 – Far Far Away?!
Made In Abyss Season 2 is wrapped up, and it became one of the most popular anime of Summer 2022 in Japan. And by the end of 2022, everyone will be asking for a Season 3.
Looking at the global popularity and acclaim of the series, renewing Made In Abyss for a third season might just be the easiest decision their executives will make. However, there is another problem at hand, which will most definitely cause an unwanted and long delay.
See, Made In Abyss is based on a Japanese manga created by Akihito Tsukushi. The manga debuted in October 2012 and is still running. However, since 2012, Akihito has only put out 11 Volumes with a varying number of chapters per volume.
Out of these 11 Volumes, 10 have already been used in Season 1, the canon film (Made in Abyss: Dawn of the Deep Soul), and Season 2.
Because the manga is slowpoke, there’s not enough source material to continue the anime. And if the manga release dates are any indication, it could take a couple of years before we have enough source material for a Made In Abyss Season 3.
So, savor these 12 episodes of Made In Abyss Season 2 because, after that, it’s only “re-watch.”
While other fans waiting for the next season can turn to the manga, Made In Abyss fans don’t have that option either.
With that slightly upsetting news, we bring our Made In Abyss Season 2 watch guide to an end.
You can either wait and watch it on Adult Swim or just get over it in a day or two, thanks to HiDive Simulcast. Whatever you do, just prepare yourself for a rollercoaster of emotions.
