Has Hell’s Paradise been renewed for Season 2? Here’s what we know:

Renewed Or Cancelled?

Hell’s Paradise is the latest Studio Mappa hit with lots of bloody violence, an enthralling world, and a great group of characters at its core. After finishing all 13 episodes, you may be wondering if this has been renewed or canceled. Here’s what we know:


What is Hell’s Paradise Season 1 about?

Hell’s Paradise follows a shinobi and a death row convict named Gabimaru. A skilled executioner named Sagiri informs Gabimaru that the shogunate wants him to retrieve the Elixir of Life found on a mysterious island called Shinsenkyo.

He promises to drop Gabimaru’s charges, which will allow him to see his wife again. However, Gabimaru will be joined by other death row convicts who are after the same prize. With the odds stacked against him, Gabimaru must rely on his strength, wit, and skill if he hopes to reunite with the woman he holds close to his heart.

Has Hell’s Paradise been renewed for season 2?

At the time of writing, Hell’s Paradise has been renewed for a second season. Given the nature of the show’s popularity, it made sense for MAPPA to greenlight another season.

Generally, MAPPA Studios gauge numerous metrics before renewing a show, including how many people initially watch it, gauging fan reaction, and then looking at the drop-off rate. Furthermore, manga sales and how much of the manga has been adapted are also taken into consideration. With some shows, cancellations or renewals happen quickly. Other times, it can take months before a final decision is made about the show’s future.

So far, Hell’s Paradise has had a really good reaction from audiences and critics alike, with most commenting on the fun story, mysterious world, and alluring characters.

Given the way this show is set up, there was definitely potential for a sequel. Rumblings online seem to hint that the second season will continue exploring the Lord Tensen arc of the series and focus on a new character named Shugen who was introduced to us in episode 13.

We’ll be sure to update this section with accurate details over the coming weeks and months when we know more!



What we know about season 2 so far:

Barely anything is known about season 2 at this point, despite MAPPA green-lighting the sequel. However, it seems likely that the show will continue the manga’s story from volume 7 and explore our cast’s battle with the Tensen and gain more intel about Shinsenkyo and the Elixir of Life. The series will also introduce new characters into the foray like Yamada Asaemon Shugen.

Although a release date wasn’t set for season 2, we can anticipate it to release in 2024 or 2025, given MAPPA’s other projects down the pipeline. We’ll be sure to update this page in the future when more information is known though!
