Yona of the Dawn is an anime series based on the Japanese Manga series composed and illustrated by Mizuho Kusanagi. The anime adaptation of the manga made its debut on October 7, 2014.
Several years have passed and there has been no update concerning the second season of this popular anime series. Will we ever get to see the flame-red hair Yona and her party ever again?
Here’s everything you need to know about season 2 of Yona of the Dawn.
When is Season 2 of Yona of the Dawn Releasing?
As of now, studio Pierrot is yet to announce whether or not the anime series will be renewed or canceled. Fast forward, it’s been almost eight years since the 24 episode season came out. The series has also released 3 OVAs and while fans have been earnestly awaiting the second season it seems like the prospect of the show is quite uncertain.
Needless to say, there are enough source materials to create a second season because the manga series currently has 34 volumes and the ratings are high as well so why haven’t we heard anything from the makers or the studio yet? Maybe it’s an indication that the series is not returning with another season perhaps?
The official website called Anime Next Season speculates that the series might be over for good, pointing out poor merch sales, and evidently, the series’ social media pages have stopped promoting the show as a clear sign of its termination.
On the off chance, the series gets renewed, it’s expected that the new episodes will arrive sometime in 2023 or 2024.
The Plot of Yona of the Dawn Season 2
The second season, if renewed, will once again follow the narrative from the manga series. The first season covered volumes 1 to 8, the OVA covered the whole volume 18.
In the last season, we witnessed that Yona and her party were gearing up to battle Su-Won and his armies to reclaim the kingdom which was forcefully overtaken by Su-Won. The second season will cover volume 9 and will show us the fierce battle of Yona along with Hak and the four legendary dragons against Su-won and his allies.
We also expect to see a bit of a romance between Hak and Yona and a backstory of the white dragon Kija.
