It has been almost two years since the popular anime television series, ‘Goblin Slayer’ started airing and the fans are still waiting for a sequel to the series. The good news is that the show has already received the green light for a new season. All we need to do is wait for further details by the show makers.
Directed by Takaharu Ozaki and produced by White Fox, Goblin Slayer is adapted from a Japanese dark fantasy light book series bearing the same name, which is written by Kumo Kagyu and illustrated by Noboru Kannatsuki. The script for the anime has been penned by Hideyuki Kurata and Yosuke Kuroda. The popularity of the show spread beyond expectations when a movie titled, ‘Goblin’s Crown’ with the same cast and crew, premiered earlier this year on February 1, 2020.
In all probability, it seems that the show will release in the first half of 2020. The second season of Goblin Slayer was earlier scheduled to start broadcasting in Fall, 2020, however the Coronavirus pandemic came in the way and now the production has been postponed. The first season premiered on October 7, 2018 on AT-X, Sun TV, Tokyo MX, and BS11 in Japan and concluded on December 30, 2018. The season consisted of twelve episodes, each of 24 minutes approximately, and season two might have the same number of episodes. You can watch all the episodes of the series on Netflix and Prime Video, by paying a subscription fee. The season is also available to stream for free on YouTube and Crunchyroll with English subtitles (for international viewers) and on Funimation.
The main characters of the anime include Goblin Slayer voiced over by Yuichiro Umehara, Priestess, voiced over by Yui Ogura, High Elf Archer voiced over by Nao Toyama, Cow Girl voiced over by Yuka Iguchi, Guild Girl voiced over by Maaya Uchida, Dwarf Shaman voiced over by Yuichi Nakamura, Lizard Priest voiced over by Tomokazu Sugita, Spearman voiced over by Yoshitsugu Matsuoka, and Witch voiced over by Yoko Hikasa. Hopefully we will be seeing the same voice cast in the upcoming season as well.
The trailer of Goblin Slayer Season 2 has not been out yet. It is usually released a few weeks before the series start airing. We have provided the trailer of the first season here. You can watch it for the time being.
Goblin Slayer Expected Storyline
The series has been set in a world of fantasy, where people from different corners of the world come and join the Guild, complete tasks in order to earn gold and glory. A young and naive priestess forms her very first adventurous party, but almost immediately comes across danger when her first task involving goblins turn wrong. When the rest of the party gets wiped out, an adventurer determined to exterminate all the goblins by any possible means, known as the Goblin Slayer, comes to their rescue. Moreover, when the rumours of his feats started circulating, there was no guessing who might come calling next.
The upcoming season is expected to pick up the storyline where it left off. The season might disclose many mysteries and provide answers to the unanswered questions. We will also come to know about the real identify of Goblin Slayer and his background, which indicates, that the season will put its focus on his past life.
