So far, Houseki No Kuni Season 2 has not been officially announced, so there is no release date for the second season of this anime, but the question is if there will be a Houseki No Kuni Season 2 and when it will be released.
Here’s everything we know so far regarding whether or not there will be a new season of Houseki No Kuni and when it will be released.
The anime series Land of the Lustrous, known as Houseki no Kuni in Japanese, is based on a successful manga of the same name that was first published in 2013. The Houseki no Kuni manga series is written and illustrated by Haruko Ichikawa.
Houseki No Kuni is a fantastic fantasy anime series with great action elements that is loved by people all over the world. It follows Phosphophyllite, better known as Phos, who is a young and delicate Gem that wishes to join in the war effort.
The anime television series Land of the Lustrous has only had one season so far, directed by Takahiko Kyougoku and animated by Studio Orange. There has been no word on whether the studio or the director will return for a Houseki No Kuni s2.
The first 12-episode Houseki No Kuni television anime series premiered in Japan in October 2017. Since then, this series has amassed a sizable fan base that is still waiting for Houseki No Kuni Season 2 Episode 1 or some sort of sequel.
Will There Be Houseki No Kuni Season 2?
Houseki No Kuni Season 2 might happen, but the odds aren’t the best. I’d argue that if the second season isn’t announced by 2022-2023, it won’t happen at all. Houseki No Kuni didn’t sell poorly, but it also didn’t make a lot of money, and the series has been on hiatus for the past 18 months.
The fact that the anime adaptation made a decent amount of money makes me hopeful for a second season. Blu-ray sales average roughly 6,000 units every blu-ray, which is a solid number. The merchandise fared well as well, with roughly 350 pieces sold but just a few figurines. The manga sells roughly 120,000 copies on average, but only one per year, which is not ideal.
However, the fact that the series is on hiatus does not bode well for a sequel. Also, Houseki No Kuni’s social media hasn’t been updated in almost two years, which isn’t ideal if there are plans for a Houseki No Kuni Season 2. I should also highlight that there hasn’t been any new merchandise for this series in the last two years. It’s almost as though the production committee gave up on this series two years ago, but we need to wait and see for now.
Houseki No Kuni Season 2 Release Date
There is no official release date for Houseki No Kuni Season 2 because the second season was never confirmed, canceled, or announced, so there is no countdown, and it’s questionable if we ever get an official release date for the second season.
If there is no word regarding the second season in 2022 or 2023, Houseki No Kuni Season 2 will most likely never happen and will never have a release date. Currently, I would give the second season a 30-40% chance of happening, owing mostly to the fact that the first season did not sell poorly. All we can do for now is wait and hope that a new season will get announced.
We will update this post if there is any news or a release date for Houseki No Kuni Season 2 announced on the Houseki No Kuni official Twitter account. If you lost hope that there would be a new Houseki No Kuni season, you can start reading the manga to continue the story from volume 5 since the anime covered volumes 1 to 4 properly.

Last Thoughts On Houseki No Kuni Season 2
Many anime fans would be thrilled if Houseki No Kuni anime Season 2 was announced, so let’s hope it happens in 2022, or 2023. I believe there is still a decent chance that a new season of Land of the Lustrous will be announced in the next one to two years.
