Is Yasuke season 2 happening?

The original anime series Yasuke just dropped its first season on Netflix and the show is already receiving quite the rave as it tells us about the legendary story of Japan’s first black samurai.

The anime currently has a 92% on Rotten Tomatoes, which, under 24 hours, is an incredible feat, and the positive reception is only increasing by the hour.

While this is amazing for the series’ first season, you’re probably wondering if that means even more amazing things for a potential second season.

We’re here to tell you if Yasuke season 2 could be coming your way soon.

Will there be a season 2 of Yasuke?

Currently, there is no official announcement regarding a second season of the original series as it is still a bit too early to say, but the show’s creator, LeSean Thomas, is pretty optimistic for a second season.

In an interview with, Thomas spoke about the reception of the series and how we may be able to expect a continuation for Yasuke. Thomas states:

I can’t say too much, but the response has been really great and it would be great to become more than what it is. I’m just really excited for the fans digging into this, and then we’ll see. Obviously, it would be great to have a big splash and then keep things going.

While he couldn’t disclose too much, it does look like LeSean Thomas has plans to continue the series if Netflix grants him the opportunity, which is absolutely incredible news for the many fans that this show has acquired in such a short time.

Wired donned Yasuke as a “step forward” and applauded the series for its complex formula with Thomas, Lakeith Stanfield, and musician Flying Lotus paying off extremely well in the end. It’s safe to say that there are plenty of people who agree as well. Now, we just have to wait for Netflix to follow suit.

Though news for season 2 has yet to be announced, we’re hopeful that Yasuke will receive a second season and we can’t wait for some good news. Fingers crossed, of course.
