When is season 2 going to be out?
There is no official announcement regarding the second season of “Dragon Ball Super,” but fans can expect it to premiere in the next year or two. The next movie “Dragon Ball Super” will be released in 2022, and Toei Animation’s release time may be slightly expanded. Since the first “Dragon Ball Super: Broly” premiered in December, perhaps the next movie will also debut in winter.

Why has it taken so long?
One of the reasons for the delay is COVID19, which explains the filming and production of all the shows and movies. As the world slowly adjusts to the new normal, unfinished projects are taking on new lives. Another possible reason could be that Toei Animation studio is currently working on another animated movies like “One Piece: Run.” The “Dragon Ball Super” staff were busy with the “One Piece” movie in 2018 and 2019.
