Grimoire of Zero is based on a light novel series written by Kakeru Kobashiri and illustrated by Yoshinori Shizuma. The novel was adapted into a manga series illustrated by Takashi Iwasaki, and then it was adapted into animation by White Fox Studio in 2017.
Grimoire of Zero is among the most loved anime series. The first season only had 12 episodes released over three months, which disappointed the fans because it ended too soon. Fans have been desperately waiting for positive news regarding the show’s renewal because they badly have been missing their beloved characters, Zero, Mercenary, Albus, and the others.
Grimoire of Zero is a fantasy anime like none other, and it keeps you engaged the whole time. So, when will Season 2 be released? Furthermore, what do we know about it? Fortunately, your questions will be answered in this article.
What Happened So Far in Grimoire of Zero?
The plot is set at year 526 of the Liturgical calendar. It is about how witches start a war against the magic that has existed for assisting people. It is believed that a witch caused the previous plague, which destroyed the good in the world, and many people died because of her. While humans and witches are constantly fighting with each other in this world, another species called ‘beastfallen‘ exists; these are cursed humans born with strength and appearance. Due to their power, build, and physical abilities, they are shunned and feared by both humans and witches. Hence, to make a living, they become sellswords and hunt witches.
These beastfallen are also hunted by witches because their heads sell at a high price in the market. The main character in the story is a half-beast, half-human Mercenary who dreams of becoming a human. On a fateful day, he meets a witch named Zero who promises to turn him into a complete human if he escorts her on a journey to finding a powerful Grimoire which can cause havoc if fallen into the wrong hands.
The Mercenary agrees, although he hates witches, and they both start their journey together. During their journey, the Mercenary’s inner kindness begins to unveil, and he starts to feel compassion towards humans and witches. The two companions grow together on this adventure and understand more about the world and its people.
What Is Going on White Fox?

What Do We Know About Grimoire of Zero Season 2 So Far?
So far, there has been no official announcement regarding the renewal of Season 2 from the studio or by Kakeru Kobashiri. No teasers or information has been leaked either, nor are there any rumors about Season 2 on the internet.
What Are Fans Saying About Grimoire of Zero Season 2?
Ever since season 1 ended, fans have been demanding Season 2 all over social media. Although three years have passed since the first season aired, fans have stayed loyal to the show and are still hoping for news related to it. In its memory, they post about the things they loved about the anime, such as its music, animation, and characters.
Fans had begun to ask for Season 2 only a month after the first season because the anime ended too soon, and they weren’t ready to let go of it.
Will There Be Grimoire of Zero Season 2?
There hasn’t been any official announcement yet regarding the release of Season 2. However, there are a few reasons why there are chances of Season 2 coming out. Firstly, the first season was successful and has remained prevalent; as shown on Google Trends, it was also rated 7.08 based on 101,926 votes, which is a good enough rating for a show to can a second season.
Another factor indicating the possibility of Season 2 is enough source material for a second season. Eleven light novel volumes are available, and a spin-off manga named “Zero kara Hajimeru Mahō no Sho Nano!” is ongoing. There are also additional six volumes of the original manga available. There is more than enough content available to create a second season which can be even more than 12 episodes.
Even after all these years, the demand for the second season remains very high, which can motivate the creators to produce a second season. Countless famous animes, including Log Horizon and One-Punch Man, were renewed after four to five years, and it still hasn’t been that long since season one ended, so we can expect a second season to be announced soon.
Keeping all of this in mind, the show’s renewal cannot be 100% confirmed because of no news for the officials. Still, seeing the popularity and source material available, there are reasonable chances of Season 2 coming out.
When Will Grimoire of Zero Season 2 Be Released?
Since Season 2 has not yet been confirmed by the studio, its release date has not been released either. However, the studio isn’t currently working on any project to start Season 2 soon. If they do, then a second season will most likely be released in mid of 2022.
What Can We Expect in Season 2 of Grimoire of Zero?
Zero shows her interest in having a romantic relationship with the Mercenary at the end of season one. Still, he doesn’t reciprocate and instead says he’s there for her protection only. However, Mercenary has started developing feelings for Zero too. If Season 2 follows the story in the source material, it will show the two spend more time together, learn and grow, fall more deeply in love with each other, and end up together.
