The anime adaptation of Yōukoso Jitsuryoku Shijō Shugi no Kyōshitsu e light novel series is one of the best anime series of the decade. Millions of fans from all around the globe are curious to know about the future of the series. Well, animation studio Lerche is yet to renew Classroom Of The Elite Season 2. However, fortunately, there’s still hope for the return of the psychological thriller. Hence, here’s everything you need to know about the highly-anticipated sequel.
It’s been three years since Studio Lerche released any new episodes of Classroom Of The Elite Season 2. The anime adaptation debuted back in July 2017 and ran for twelve episodes. Well, the television series impressed a lot of viewers and critics alike. Hence, they all had their hopes high for a second installment. Sadly, we’ve all been waiting for an official renewal since then.
Classroom Of The Elite Season 2: Will It Ever Return?
The creators of the popular anime have neither renewed nor canceled the second season of Yōukoso Jitsuryoku Shijō Shugi no Kyōshitsu e. Hence, there’s still hope for its return in the upcoming years. In the past, several anime series have taken over five years to make their comeback. Besides, it’s normal for Japanese animated series to take longer to return than most US TV shows. Thus, fans shouldn’t lose hope for Classroom Of The Elite Season 2 just yet.
However, one of the most concerning issues standing in the way of Season 2 is the nature of its studio. Well, Studio Lerche is infamous for not producing the sequels of some well-deserving anime. Aside from a few shows (including Assassination Classroom), Lerche rarely gives away the opportunity to return. Most anime series these days are solely produced in order to promote its source material. Well, we can only hope that it is not the case with Classroom Of The Elite Season 2. Besides, this anime is too good to not get a second chance.
Is There Enough Source Material For The New Season?
Fortunately, there’s more than enough content to create the second season. The Classroom Of The Elite light novel series contains twelve volumes and three short volumes centering around the first year. In fact, the ‘2nd Year’ edition of the series has already released two LN volumes as of June 2020. Surprisingly, the first season only covered the first three books of its source material. Hence, Studio Lerche has plenty of light novel volumes to shape the sequel.

Classroom Of The Elite Season 2: What Will Happen?
The story of the popular psychological thriller centers around the students of Tokyo Metropolitan Advanced Nurturing School. In a not too distant future, the Japanese government establishes an institution that fosters people that are expected to support the country. Viewers experience the adventures of the Elite School from the perspective of a D-class student, Kiyotaka Ayanokōji. Chances are high that Classroom Of The Elite might continue the plot from where the first season left. Hence, the story will be based on Volume 4 and the next few books of the LN series.
Towards the last couple of episodes, Ayanokoji orchestrated events in favor of Class D. His class turned out to be on top during the survival test on the deserted island. The upcoming season is expected to follow the group battles on the cruise ship. In this event, each group will be required to find the VIP out of the other groups. However, unlike other challenges, competitors will have to use their brains instead of their survival skills.
Like always, the elites might cause problems for the rest of the students and attempt to manipulate the results. However, we hope that Ayanokoji gives them a tough fight yet again. As of now, the storyline of Classroom Of The Elite Season 2 looks much more exciting than ever before. We hope that the studio renews the sequel soon. Do you want another season of the anime?

When Will The Sequel Release?
Even if Studio Lerche renews Classroom Of The Elite Season 2 this year, the sequel may take a few years to hit the screens. Anime series tend to take longer in the production process. As of now, there are chances that the new season might premiere by late 2021 or early 2022. Yet, it’s always wise to wait for an official announcement. We will update this section will all future updates about the upcoming installment.
