The first episode of Jujutsu Kaisen season 2 was released on July 6, 2023. The above table summarizes the Jujutsu Kaisen season 2 release schedule. The date and time, however, are subject to change if the studio announces them in the near future.

The first season of the anime consisted of 24 episodes that covered over four arc stories, which are 64 chapters of the well-known Gege Akutami's Jujutsu Kaisen manga. The four arcs covered in the first season were the Fearsome Womb Arc, the Vs. Mahito Arc, the Kyoto Goodwill Event Arc, and the Death Painting Arc.

Now, with the start of season 2, it is expected to cover Gojo's Past arc as well as the infamous Shibuya Incident arc. These arcs span 15 and 58 chapters, respectively, for a total of 73 chapters.

According to reports, Gojo's Past arc will be adapted into five episodes, covering all of the chapters of Hidden Inventory and Premature Death, with the sixth episode beginning the Shibuya Incident arc and continuing to adapt the remaining episodes. However, the fandom can see above that the sixth episode is scheduled for August 31, 2023, following episode 5, which will air on August 3, 2023.

This is because Season 2 will take a break following the conclusion of the first cour. Thus, for the first two weeks, on August 10 and 17, the fandom will receive recaps of the Jujutsu Kaisen 0 movie and the Jujutsu Kaisen season 1 recap. After the screening of the Jujutsu Kaisen season 1 recap, there will be a one-week break, and the second cour of the season will return on August 31 with the Shibuya Incident arc.

As for the times of the episode releases, they will occur every Thursday at 11:56 p.m. JST (conversion for other time zones is provided in the table above) and will be accessible on a variety of streaming services.

In Japan, the episodes will be available on several streaming platforms, including ABEMA, DMM TV, d Anime Store, Disney Plus, and Prime Video. International audiences can watch it on Crunchyroll, Ani-One Asia ULTRA, and Netflix in selected areas.


What can fans expect from Jujutsu Kaisen season 2?

As the Gojo's Past and Shibuya Incident arc will be featured in season 2, fans will first witness Gojo's past when he was in his second year of Jujutsu High. Additionally, it will be revealed that he and Geto were given a mission by Tengen Sama. Not only that, but viewers will be able to see Gojo and Geto's relationship.

The season will also witness some new characters being introduced to the audience. Since the season will have two cours, the second one will feature the Shibuya Incident arc, which will see the results of all the planning the Geto has done in season 1.

It will also reveal how Geto is alive after being killed in the film. Jujutsu Kaisen season 2 will have 23 episodes, with 5 devoted to Gojo's Past arc and the rest adapting the Shibuya Incident arc.

As of Episode 10, Gojo Has been sealed and the first act of the Shibuya Incident arc has come to a close. With the pace that Mappa has set, Jujutsu Kaisen season 2 is expected to cover the entirety of the arc. Episode 16 saw the death of Jogo, while episode 17 marked the entry of Mahoraga and the conclusion of the Shibuya Massacre.

Episode 18 showcased Nanami Kento's death while episode 19 showcased Nobara's. The pacing has slowed down considerably with Mappa adding quite a bit of original content, especially in the flashback scenes.

Jujutsu Kaisen season 2, episode 20 witnessed Yuji losing all hope as he dealt with Nobara's death and the endless massacre around him. Todo arrives in time to save Yuji from Mahito. Arata gives hope for Nobara's survival, while Mechamaru sends Miwa and others on a train away from Shibuya to keep them safe.
