According to reporting by Crunchyroll, Fruits Basket Season 2 will air on TV Tokyo and its affiliate channels, and the second season will include the same voice cast the reboot’s first season. The reboot’s first season contained 25 episodes, but it is unknown how many will be in the second season. Additionally, no information has been revealed about a potential English-language release. The first season is available on Funimation, Crunchyroll, and Hulu with English subtitles, however, so the second season will likely come to some (if not all) of those streaming sites.
Not to be confused with the 2001 anime of the same name, the 2019 reboot series is aiming to adapt the entirety of Natsuki Takaya’s Fruits Basket manga. The story follows Tohru Honda, who moves in with some male classmates, only to discover that they transform into animals when exposed to people of the opposite sex. GameRevolution named Fruits Basket on our list of the spring 2019 anime debuts you should be watching, and the first season currently has an 8.3 rating on IMDB. The second season is likely to continue that level of quality, so fans should stay tuned for more updates about Fruits Basket Season 2’s exact release date in Japan and elsewhere.
