Dr. Stone Season 2 titled “Stone Wars” has been confirmed along with a new trailer. The first season of Dr. Stone may be one of the best anime series of 2019 and is fast becoming a fan favorite storytelling, science and character.
After the last episode aired in February 2020, most of us don’t expect another season’s premiere for at least another year – especially the coronavirus, which slows down the production of many anime. However, it looks like Dr. Stone will be back for a second season sooner than expected!
Release Date: Dr. Stone Season 2
Dr. Stone Season 2 “Stone Wars” will premiere on Thursday, January 14, 2021 on Crunchyroll. While most of us predict a 2021 release for Season 2, not many believe it could premiere earlier in the year. On December 6th, Crunchyroll confirmed that Dr. Stone will return for a second season on January 14. This news was revealed along with the trailer for the second anime series. The series runs from its Saturday premiere through Thursday, so there’s a great anime going on at least mid-week. However, it is unclear how many episodes of Dr. Stones season 2 will be around or will it be a split season. In the next few weeks, Further information is expected to be announced.
Season 2 Expected Plot
As the title suggests, this season will focus on the growing conflict between the Senku Science Kingdom and the Tsukasa Empire in the so-called “Stone War”. Although the anime carries over from the original manga series, we won’t be discussing the spoilers of the manga here. We also have to look back at Taiju and Yuzuriha who appeared to be sidelined for the second part of the first season. We know these two lovers are still loyal to Senku, but were lined up by a member of the Tsukasa Empire – a possible hostage situation?
A little apart from the main story of the second season, Dr. Stone develops romantic relationships. Will Chrome and Ruri reunite or will he develop feelings for Senku? I can’t be the merely one who believes something could transpire to Kohaku. After all, Season 2 has to be full of fun, humor and above all science!
It is understandable that the trailer for the next reveal and announcement of the January release date is thrilling anime fans last year. We hope that the second season lives up to the expectations we have as Senku fans.
