Arguably the most highly anticipated television anime series of author Chugong and illustrator DUBU is the incredibly popular Solo Leveling manhwa series.

Having begun in 2018 and concluded in 2021, fans of the original manhwa were incredibly excited to hear about the coming television anime adaptation of the series.

Likewise, on its premiere, manhwa-readers were greatly impressed with the quality of the Solo Leveling anime series, praising it as the anime of the season just two episodes in. However, those fans who prefer English dubbed anime had been left in the dark, with no information on the English dub being revealed before the Japanese premiere.

Thankfully, ahead of the third episode’s release this weekend, information on the English dub for the Solo Leveling anime was released earlier this week. Fans found out the cast, release information and trailer for the dubbed version.

Follow this article as we break down all the available information on the English dub for the series.
