There were rumors regarding the unveiling of a brand new key visual and a promotional video for the new season, but unfortunately, they were false. Fans will have to wait longer to glimpse the new essential visual and teaser trailer when released.

But the particular stage for the series at Anime Japan 2022, to be held on March 26, 2022, might be the platform for more information on the upcoming season. The voice actors for Itadori, Fushiguro, Kugisaki, Getou, and Gojo are scheduled to discuss the anime and the new Phantom Parade game unveiled during Jump Festa 2022.

Predictions for season 2

The prequel movie being canon suggests that the second season of the anime may pick up from where the movie ended. This might not be very clear, considering that the film's events occur a year before the timeline of Jujutsu Kaisen season 1.

But the next arc to be adapted in the manga is Gojo's Past arc, and the movie's exploration of Gojo and Getou's relationship makes a lot more sense after that arc.

Studio MAPPA even incorporated some scenes from this arc into the movie, making it more likely that this would be the next arc to be adapted. Fans are also hoping that season 2 would begin adapting the much anticipated Shibuya arc mentioned in season 1 of the anime.
