The second season of Sleepy Princess in the Demon Castle still hasn’t been confirmed yet. The first season aired two years ago and the manga is still ongoing, so there is a good possibility that Sleepy Princess in the Demon Castle could return for a second season. Having said all of this, Sleepy Princess in the Demon Castle is a very popular series and based on all the known facts, a second season is not impossible. We just don’t know when.
The rest of this article will bring you all the known and unknown information related to a potential season 2 of Sleepy Princess in the Demon Castle. You’re going to find out about its potential release date, whether there is a trailer, what the story could be about, and much more about this extremely popular new anime series.

As you can see, the future of Sleepy Princess in the Demon Castle is quite uncertain, but not because there’s no interest. The series is very popular and we’ll just have to see how the manga does in the future to make a proper prediction about the potential continuation of the series. In any case, the earliest we could see a potential second season is 2024, but we’d have to get some confirmation on the future during 2022 or 2023.
Sleepy Princess in the Demon Castle Season 2 trailer
You now know all the facts and our thoughts related to Sleepy Princess in the Demon Castle Season 2, which means that you’ve probably deduced for yourselves that there is no trailer for the second season of Sleepy Princess in the Demon Castle. This is because we do not know whether there will even be a second season of the show, which means that a trailer might not appear at all. But, based on all the information we have, this does not seem like a likely outcome.
As we have said, Sleepy Princess in the Demon Castle is a very likely candidate for a return. The anime has received acclaim from both professional skaters and the otaku community, and is very popular, with the manga still being published. After that, we have to wait and see whether there are actual plans for a continuation before we can make a proper prediction.
Taking into account everything we’ve said, a trailer for Sleepy Princess in the Demon Castle is unlikely to come out this or the next year. The earliest we could see a trailer is 2024, but we would have to get confirmation of a second season sometime during 2023 for that to happen.
Sleepy Princess in the Demon Castle Season 2 plot
At this moment, we do not know where the second season of Sleepy Princess in the Demon Castle could take us because we don’t know how many chapters of the manga the season could potentially adapt. Namely, due to a lack of information in general, we have absolutely no clue how far the second season might go if it even happens. What follows is a general overview of the show’s plot.
Princess Syalis is the beloved princess of the human world’s kingdom of Goodereste. Although she was kidnapped by a demon lord, her only concern is finding a good place to sleep in this castle. She therefore decides to spend the hours sleeping, but getting a good night’s rest turns out to be a lot of work! To fulfill her ambition, she begins by making a handmade pillow with the skin of her Teddy Demon guards and an “air cushion” from the magical Wind Shield.
The princess’s hapless demon guards soon discover that her captive expects to be treated like, well, a princess. The story begins with the Demon King, who wants to beat the Hero fairly, so he takes the Princess who was loved by the people from her, but she only cares about sleeping well in the Demon Castle.
With the princess in the Demon Castle, Demon Cleric who is actually the demon in charge of the Demon Temple became the one called to use magic to resurrect anyone who dies in the Demon Castle, and the Hero, who is a brave man who stood up to save the kidnapped princess, tries to rescue the princess, despite the circumstantial consequences happened by the princess in the demon castle.
Sleepy Princess in the Demon Castle Season 2 cast
It’s still too early for us to discuss a potential second season of Sleepy Princess in the Demon Castle in terms of cast and characters, simply because we do not know whether there will even be a second season. But, seeing how we know that the series is going to have a more-or-less fixed cast, we really don’t expect to see too many changes in the structure of season two, if it ever happens. Now, the main characters that have appeared in season one, likely to return for a second season, include:
- Princess Syalis
Voiced by: Inori Minase
Princess Syalis is a slender and short girl. She has white hair and purple eyes with star-shaped pupils that show her royal roots. Princess Syalis most of the time ignores what is happening around her and the characters around her and she only thinks about her goals to sleep well. She was kidnapped by the Demon King to make the kingdom fear her and to lure the Hero to fight him.
- Demon King Tasogare
Voiced by: Yoshitsugu Matsuoka
He kidnapped Syalis while he was sleeping, so he has hardly ever seen her awake and has never had a proper conversation with her. He is always thinking of ways to make the hero catch up to him and worries if he is going to lose, even putting out weapons and tools to make the search for the hero easier. Other than that, he is a good leader for the castle demons, but even he can’t go against Princess Syalis, and he is shown to care for her to some extent.
- Demon Cleric
Voiced by: Kaito Ishikawa
The Demon Cleric may seem like a kind young man, but he is actually the demon in charge of the Demon Temple inside the Demon King Castle. He is usually the one who uses magic to resurrect anyone who dies in the Demon King’s Castle. He develops feelings for the captive princess and becomes her stalker, jealous of other demons who get close to the princess.
- The Akatsuki Hero
Voiced by: Hiro Shimono
He is a hot-blooded and straightforward person, a brave man who stood up to save Princess Syalis from kidnapping him. However, the princess calls him “A-Nanaka-kun” and is unable to remember his name and existence for a long time.
- Majiro the Hedgehog
Voiced by: Rikiya Koyama
He works at the Demon King Castle as a low-class soldier. He is two meters tall and seems like a person who loves violence, but he has a lot of friends because he can’t s
Where to watch Sleepy Princess in the Demon Castle Season 2?
At this moment, as expected, there is no means of watching Sleepy Princess in the Demon Castle season two, as there is no season two of Sleepy Princess in the Demon Castle to watch. The first season was streamed globally by Funimation and Crunchyroll, the best anime-related sites on the Internet, so it is safe to assume that a second season would also be streamed via Funimation and Crunchyroll.
Will there be a Sleepy Princess in the Demon Castle Season 3?
The future of Sleepy Princess in the Demon Castle is, as of this moment, unknown. At this moment, we don’t really know anything about a second season, so whether we’ll be seeing the third season or not is still unknown. The series has done well and there is still a lot of material to adapt, which is a good sign for fans of Sleepy Princess in the Demon Castle. Depending on how a potential second season goes, Sleepy Princess in the Demon Castle could very well be renewed for a third season as well.
