Deadman Wonderland Season 2 Release Date?

Season 2 is not coming out and there are no plans of it being made - the studio that created the anime, Manglobe, filed for bankruptcy in 2015. 


It’s often disappointing to see an excellent anime series end, especially one with such an excellent plot like Deadman Wonderland. After the first season has ended rather abruptly, fans have waited for quite a long time for a second season, only to realize later that it isn’t coming. Fans and viewers of the Deadman Wonderland anime series often express disappointment when talking about wanting a second season for the anime.

Since 2008, Kazuma Kondou’s and Jinsei Kataoka Deadman Wonderland manga has been made into a series from a Japanese magazine. The first twenty-one chapters in the manga served as the basis for the anime, which aired from April to July 2011. Licensed by Funimation, Deadman Wonderland ran from May through August 2012 on Adult Swim’s relaunched Toonami block.

But before we talk about the myths and truths about a season two for Deadman Wonderland, let’s quickly recap the first season’s synopsis.

Deadman Wonderland Season 1: What Happened?

The first season of Deadman Wonderland told a fascinating story that could be summarized in about a hundred words, but why cut it short and miss some core details? The series, which had no more than twelve episodes, each of which ran for about 24 minutes per episode, falls under quite some genres which include: Shounen, Gore, High Stakes Game, Action, Horror, Supernatural, Sci-Fi, and contained a fair share of violence and obscenity.

Deadman Wonderland Synopsis

It seemed like any other day for Ganta and his friends as they prepared for an excursion to Deadman Wonderland, a prison and recreational park where inmates execute risky stunts for the delight of spectators.

But Ganta’s normal life took a dive downhill when a mysterious man in a red hood kills everyone in his class. Ganta passed out, only to later wake up to the mangled bodies of his friends and classmates. After getting falsely arrested, he was sentenced to death for the murder of all his classmates.

Ganta is taken into Deadman Wonderland, a jail with nasty prisoners and hidden secrets, which of course, are kept from the eyes of the public. After some time at the prison, Ganta discovered that it housed a secret G-Block, where there were characters with mysterious powers.

Here he must compete in death-dealing games to halt the progress of a collar around his neck, which constantly delivers poison through his body. To clear his name and uncover the identity of Wretched Egg, whom he calls "Red Man," Ganta must risk his life in a harsh environment where it is not always apparent who to trust. And so began Ganta’s sojourn in Deadman, with intertwining plots of friendships, secrets, having allies, and a great plot to escape the confines of G-Block.

Potential Plot For A Season Two

There has been no confirmation of the second season of Deadman Wonderland. Still, given the events of the first season and the lack of other information, one might speculate on what the story would be like if a second season were to be made.

If there would be a season two for Deadman Wonderland, it would most probably reveal more of Promoter Tamaki’s schemes, unravel some more questions about Shiro, and maybe, ultimately end in the release of Ganta and Shiro, after proving Ganta’s innocence to the world. And maybe, we might see more formidable opponents springing up from different corners, thereby increasing the fun and excitement. Lastly, fans would love to see some significant development in the characters, especially Ganta, as the first season had been entirely devoid of that.

But all these are still speculations, and they only came to be, seeing as season one ended in a way most fans did not exactly like.

Which Characters Would Return In Season Two?

Deadman Wonderland isn’t an anime that parades some characters for a few minutes in an episode and forgets them. Most of the characters in the anime play a significant role that can’t be overemphasized. With this in mind, the following characters are expected to come back into Deadman Wonderland Season Two:

  1. Ganta
  2. Shiro
  3. Yoh
  4. Promoter Tamaki
  5. Captain Makina
  6. Senji
  7. Karako
  8. Nagi
  9. Kyoko
  10. Minatsuki

When Would Deadman Wonderland Season Two Be Released?

We don’t think there’s much of a chance that Deadman Wonderland will return for a second season. This is because the studio that produced it, Manglobe, went out of business in 2015 owing to significant debt of over $350 million. But it’s also easy to completely lose faith.

Though Manglobe is no longer, the show might be picked up by another production company. Any thought that an animation company might adapt an already established production is not unusual. Thus, we must investigate whether or not any animation studios are interested in reviving series.

Deadman Wonderland Season 2 doesn’t have you worrying about a shortage of content since there is plenty to cover. The manga concluded some years ago, but the animated adaptation only covers the first fourteen chapters. Thirteen sections have been created from the original 58 chapters. That’s 44 potential sequel chapters right there!

The anime’s first season was unfinished, and its plot was derivative. This will make it less of a challenge for the next studio to continue what Manglobe started.

Never, ever rule out the possibility of the second season of Deadman Wonderland.

On What Platforms Can You Watch The Deadman Wonderland Series?

A handful of streaming sites provide users with the opportunity to watch this anime series. Some sites where you can stream the entire Series of Download Wonderland include Funimation, Crunchyroll, and Amazon Video (depending on your location).
