The Daily Life of the Immortal King is a Chinese web novel written by Kuxuan. It began its daily serialization in 2017. As of June 30, 2021, the novel has 1,880 chapters, of which 1,176 chapters have been translated into English. Bilibili first launched a Donghua series based on the novel of the same name on January 18, 2020. So far, the animated series has two seasons, with the second season of the show coming to Netflix.
The Daily Life of the Immortal King Season 2 has already aired in China and on Funimation, but the Netflix release date is not known at this time. Netflix aired the first season of the show, so it is likely going to air the second one as well, but we have absolutely no information on the potential release date. Meanwhile, a third season is currently in production.
The rest of this article is going to bring you all the known and unknown information related to the Netflix release of season 2 of The Daily Life of the Immortal King. You’re going to find out about its potential release date, whether there is an international trailer, what the story is going to be about, and much more about this popular Chinese animated series.
The Daily Life of the Immortal King Season 2 Netflix release date
The Daily Life of the Immortal King is a Chinese donghua series that premiered on January 18, 2020. The show is produced by bilibili and streamed internationally via Funimation. The term donghua describes all animated works, regardless of style or origin in China. However, outside of China and in English, donghua is the colloquial term for Chinese animation and refers specifically to animation produced in China. In that aspect, donghua is not the same as anime.
The first season of The Daily Life of the Immortal King had a total of 15 episodes and ended on March 28, 2020. The second season premiered on October 30, 2021 and ended on January 8, 2022, after 12 episodes. In the meantime, a third season with, as of yet, an unknown number of episodes and an unknown release date has been announced.
Donghua series aren’t as popular in the West as anime series, but some of them, like The Daily Life of the Immortal King, do make it to Western markets and managed to gather a solid number of fans. This is why Netflix acquired the international distribution rights for The Daily Life of the Immortal King, streaming its first season on its service. But, what about the second?
At this moment, we don’t really know whether Netflix plans to release The Daily Life of the Immortal King Season 2 on its service. Given that it has streamed The Daily Life of the Immortal King Season 1, it is highly likely that Season 2 will also be aired on the streaming service, but we don’t have an official confirmation just yet. Funimation has picked up both seasons, but we don’t know about Netflix.
Still, given that the release of The Daily Life of the Immortal King Season 2 on Netflix is very likely, we can speculate about a potential release date. Namely, the show’s second season has only just recently ended and since this was not a simulcast or a Netflix-produced anime series, it might take some more time for Netflix to work out all the production details of the series’ international broadcast (you know that Netflix has to translate the content into numerous languages).
This is why there is no official release date for The Daily Life of the Immortal King Season 2 on Netflix, but given everything we know so far, we think that the show might appear later in 2022 or in early 2023 (if Netflix decides to continue streaming it, that is).
The Daily Life of the Immortal King Season 2 international trailer
You now know all the facts and our thoughts related to The Daily Life of the Immortal King season 2, which means that you’ve probably deduced for yourselves that there is no international trailer for the second season of The Daily Life of the Immortal King at this moment. This is because the show hasn’t been prepared for international distribution yet.
On the other hand, a Chinese trailer has been released a while ago, which makes sense, since the season aired in China in 2021. Luckily for you, the trailer has subtitles so you can check it out for yourselves here:
Taking into account everything we’ve said, an international trailer for The Daily Life of the Immortal King season two is unlikely to appear before the summer of 2022 or even late 2022, depending on when the international version of the second season will air on Netflix.
The Daily Life of the Immortal King Season 2 plot
The plot of The Daily Life of the Immortal King can be summed up like this:
As a cultivation genius who has achieved a new realm every two years since he was a year old, Wang Ling is a near-invincible existence with powers far beyond his control. But now that he’s sixteen, he faces his greatest battle yet – Senior High School. With one challenge after another popping up, his plans for a low-key high school life seem further and further away.
We really do not want to spoil the show to you, which is why we are just giving you this brief outline of the plot; this is actually a press release summary of the show. If you want to know more, you can check out the first season on Netflix.
The Daily Life of the Immortal King Season 2 cast

Here is the list:
|Qian Chen||Sun Rong|

Where to watch The Daily Life of the Immortal King Season 2?
At this moment, you can watch The Daily Life of the Immortal King on Funimation and we expect the show to be available on Netflix in the near future. As we know quite well, the first season was streamed globally by Netflix, so it is safe to assume that the streaming service will retain the distribution rights and that the already-released second season of The Daily Life of the Immortal King will air on Netflix in the near future.
Will there be a The Daily Life of the Immortal King Season 3?
Unlike in the majority of our similar articles, we actually do not have to speculate here, as we know that The Daily Life of the Immortal King is getting a third season. The information was confirmed back in 2020 by bilibili, along with the release of an announcement trailer online. The Daily Life of the Immortal King is, thus, getting at least one additional season, although, at this point, we have absolutely no information on the third season’s release date.
