The story follows a monster Gastrea, who eats humans alive, attacked the earth in 2021. He kills and infected several women. Humans were compelled to live within fortified walls created from Varanium, a metal which Gastrea could not destroy. Later, we saw the infected pregnant women gave birth to female children having supernatural abilities. Those children came to know as Cursed child. After ten years we saw, Rentarō Satomi, a high school student, created an agency named Tendō Civil Security with his friend Kisara Tendō. She is also the president of the security council. The council aimed to destroy the monster with the help of another member. The council appointed Enju Aihara, a Cursed child as Initiator, and Tina Sprout as a member to fight with the monster.
The creators have put the plot of Season 2 under wraps, so we assume that season 2 will start from where the 1st season left. If you can’t wait for the anime, refer to the manga to know what will happen next.
The Release Date of Black Bullet Season 2.When Will It Air?
The final episode of season 1 had released on July 1, 2014. Six years have elapsed since then, and we are still waiting for season 2. You have heard on numerous youtube channels and read on several websites that creators have confirmed season 2. They could not release it in 2020 due to the global pandemic of coronavirus. Well, all are just fake rumors.
Kinema Citrus and orange Studios has not officially announced anything regarding season 2 of the series. What does it mean?
Is Black Bullet Season 2 Canceled?
No, of course not. There is no official announcement regarding its cancellation. Now you want to know what are the chances of renewal of the series. Well, the chances are pretty slim. Renewal of any series depends on the sales and the source material. The series performed well and generated a decent revenue.
Now let’s talk about the source material. Well, the light novel series has 7 volumes, and the anime has covered the first 4 volumes of it so far. Only 3 volumes are left for season 2. Well, I assume that they need the 8th volume to produce season 2. The chances of creating the 8th volume seem near impossible as the writer has not proceeded with it since April 2014. Moreover, Kinema Citrus is not known for making sequels. So, there are high chances that we may not see Season 2 ever.
Well, we will update here if anything new comes.

The creators have not given the green light to the sequel. So, you can’t think of the trailer or teaser as of now. We will let you know once the trailer comes.
