That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 2 episode 1 is set to premiere on January 12, 2021. It was originally slated to air during Fall 2020, but thanks to the ongoing pandemic it has been delayed to January 2021. At least there’s now a firm release date to pencil into calendars around the world.

The release date of Season 2 episode 1 of That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime is currently January 12, 2021, in the U.S. and in the U.K. While it is expected that the new episode releases on that date, one can never write off further delays in the current climate. Time will tell if January 12 is correct.

The premiere times outside of Japan should be as follows on January 12, too (based on the Japanese release time of 11 PM JST on TOKYO MX):

  • 6 AM PT
  • 9 AM ET
  • 12 PM (midday) GMT
  • 1 PM CET
  • 11 PM AEDT

Of course, the premiere time and air date could change. Crunchyroll and Funimation are yet to confirm the exact timings of the second season of the anime. It has been confirmed, though, that both Crunchyroll and Funimation will be streaming the anime from January 12, 2021.

Is there a That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 2 English dub?

Funimation will be streaming the anime in its English dub. It is currently unclear whether this will be on or after January 12, 2021, however. For now, though, it is confirmed that it is airing dubbed on the platform. Presumably, it is subbed only on Crunchyroll.

Before the new series airs, too, there is plenty of other anime to enjoy. New episodes of Jujutsu Kaisen and Tonikawa: Over The Moon For You should tide anime fans over until the return of Rimuru the Slime.
