Has Konosuba: An Explosion On This Wonderful World been renewed for season 2?

At the time of writing, Konosuba: An Explosion On This Wonderful World has not been renewed for a second season. Given the nature of the show’s content, it appears another season won’t happen.

Generally, Studio Drive 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.

Since Studio Drive adapted Konosuba: An Explosion On This Wonderful World’s source material within 12 episodes, we believe this will not be renewed for another season.

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, given Studio Drive has not green-lit a sequel. It appears the studio managed to adapt the entirety of this spin-off’s light novel and manga. However, it’s been confirmed that the mainline Konosuba series’s third season will air sometime in 2024, according to the Japanese Konosuba Twitter account.

Therefore, we believe this spin-off will not be renewed for another season due to the reasons mentioned above. We’ll be sure to update this page in the future when more information is known though!
