It has been two years since Darling in the Franxx premiered as an amazing sci-fi romance anime that captured the hearts of millions. Since then speculations have been going around about the possible return with the second season.
Recently rumours about the release have been taking Twitter by storm with people anticipating its release soon. So is it true? Are we finally going to get more battles between Hiro and Zero Two against VIRM? Here is everything you need to know about the renewal status and other details about the show.
Darling In The Franxx Season 2: Renewal Status
It seems that there is hardly any chance of the anime renewing for another season. Even though the series was widely received it did get a digestible ending in season 1, which means that creators probably won’t look for another instalment. Studio Trigger, the anime hosts, aren’t really known to give their anime a second season.

But here is a ray of hope. The anime was a collaborative work between them and Clover Works. Seeing the success of the series one of these studios might decide to go ahead with the production of the next season, even if the other refuses.
But we do have another obstacle. Since the series ended with our protagonists sacrificing themselves and then reincarnating, the only possible way for the next season to come in is with a fresh start or picking it up after the reincarnation.
Darling In The Franxx Season 2: Release Date
The release date for Darling In The Franxx season 2 has not yet been announced because a formal renewal and season 2 announcement are still pending.
It’s likely that Darling In The Franxx season 2 is in development but hasn’t yet been revealed. However, given how long it takes to make an entire season of anime, a release date for Darling In The Franxx season 2 wouldn’t happen until at the absolute latest the summer or fall of 2022.
Darling In The Franxx Season 2: Expected Plot
A hypothetical Darling The Franxx season 2 would likely have to start from scratch given how the first season ended. The Klaxosaurs fled back into the Earth as the anime TV series’ climax saw Hiro and Zero Two sacrificing themselves to destroy the homeworld of the alien hive mind VIRM.
Fans noticed the strongest hint to a Darling In The Franxx season 2 announcement when the survivors help rebuild the planet, but the VIRM promise to return someday to make another mess.
A probable Darling In The Franxx season 2 timeline is suggested by the fact that Hiro and Zero Two are both resurrected and cross paths again a thousand years in the future.
If a second season of Darling in the Franxx is confirmed, it will either be a prequel focusing on different characters or take up with Zero Two and Hiro in their new bodies as they battle a fresh enemy or the return of the Klaxosaurs.
Darling In The Franxx season 2 may not happen because some viewers found the finale to be disappointing, but given the show’s popularity, a continuation is definitely feasible.

Ratings and Reviews for Darling In The Franxx
In English-language media, Darling in the Franxx received a mixed response. Reviews have lauded the series’ heavy emphasis on its coming-of-age and romantic themes.
Other topics that received a more mixed or unfavourable response were the overt sexual innuendos directed at teenagers, the lack of progress in the plot involving the extraterrestrial species VIRM, the plot twists in the second half of the series, and the hurried pace of the narrative after episode 15.
The series, according to Kotaku’s Eric Van Allen, had “moments of genius” and did a good job with the early mech combat and Zero Two’s character, but he didn’t appreciate how the plot developed in the second half of the show or how it ended.
The series was praised by Kyle Rogacion of Goomba Stomp as “an adorable character-driven coming-of-age story,” but was panned for having “eschewed everything that made it wonderful and settled for the easy way out” towards the series’ conclusion.
The series would be “well-remembered for seasons to come,” according to Random Curiosity, which also added that it “had us all fascinated and excitedly anticipating every episode set to show.” In Japan, Franxx received a better response.
