Has Yakitori: Soldiers of Misfortune been renewed for Season 2? Here’s what we know:

Renewed Or Cancelled?

Yakitori: Soldiers of Misfortune is an original animated sci-fi adventure, with plenty of drama, action and interesting lore.

If you’ve finished watching this one, you may be wondering if this has been renewed or cancelled. Here’s what we know so far:


What is Yakitori: Soldiers of Misfortune Season 1 about?

Yakitori: Soldiers of Misfortune centers on Akira, a young man who rebels against authorities on a future version of Earth, after he has been recruited into an interplanetary military unit that suffers a 70% casualty rate.

Throughout the series, Akira goes on one heck of a character journey, eventually becoming part of the K321 unit and showing his leadership qualities. All of this eventually leads to a dramatic final chapter.


Has Yakitori: Soldiers of Misfortune been renewed for season 2?

At the time of writing, Netflix have not renewed Yakitori: Soldiers of Misfortune for a second season. Given the nature of this series, that could change if it does good numbers for them.

Generally Netflix, like other streamers, gauge numerous metrics before renewing a show, including how many people initially watch it and then looking at the drop-off rate. With some shows, cancellations or renewals happen quickly (ala. Squid Game, Bridgerton etc.) Other times, it can take months before Netflix make a decision over a show’s future.

So far, Yakitori: Soldiers of Misfortune has had a very favorable reaction from audiences and critics alike, with the series easy to watch and binge through, with plenty of drama and sci-fi action.

With all that considered, we predict that Netflix will not renew Yakitori: Soldiers of Misfortune for a follow-up season. Now, that could change but Netflix generally has a pretty hit or miss history with renewing its animated series, especially after shutting down some of its animated studios last year so we’ll have to wait and see.

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:

Not much is known about season 2 at the time of writing, given Netflix have not officially renewed this one yet. Should the streamers decide to greenlight this one, it can sometimes take several months before they make a decision.

It’s likely that Netflix will make an official announcement several months from now, once the final viewing figures are in, but for now we’ll have to wait and see. We’ll be sure to update this section with more information as it becomes available.

  1. Definitely needs Season 2. Just finished binge watching it for the first time and will undoubtedly watch it several more times. It goes on my default list with Ghost in the Shell.

  2. I think that it should be renewed for a 2nd season. I gave it 2 thumbs up!!
    Since the day it was released for me to watch ( which was on the 18th) I have watched it twice. I loved!
