The Eminence in Shadow is a Japanese light novel series written by Daisuke Aizawa and illustrated by Tōzai. It has been published as an online novel since May 2018 on the text publishing site Shōsetsuka ni narō. An anime adaptation of the series produced by the Nexus studio began airing in October 2022. While we’re waiting for new episodes of the show to come out, we have decided to tell you everything we know about a potential second season of The Eminence in Shadow.
The second season of The Eminence in Shadow still hasn’t been confirmed or canceled yet. The first season is still airing while we’re writing this article, which means that it’s still too early to tell whether we’ll be seeing more of the show. But, there is more than enough material in the ongoing novel series, and based on the series’ popularity, the future seems bright. Having said all of this, a second season is likely. We just don’t know when it could happen.
The rest of this article will bring you all the known and unknown information related to a potential season two of The Eminence in Shadow. 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 exciting anime series whose future is still, at the moment, somewhat uncertain.
What do we know about Season 2 of The Eminence in Shadow?
The series is quite popular, that cannot be denied, but the information we have – and that is not much – doesn’t tell us much about the future of the show, which is a bummer. Still, based on several facts, we can state that the future of The Eminence in Shadow seems bright, or – at least – not bad. First of all, the novel series is still ongoing, which means that there is a need to promote written materials, which is why anime adaptations are usually made. This also means that there are more stories to adapt. Secondly, the series is still airing, which means that the hype is quite alive. Thirdly, The Eminence in Shadow is quite popular and has a solid fanbase.
All of these things add up to the fact that The Eminence in Shadow is probably not getting canceled after the first season ends. We can never be absolutely certain, but based on our knowledge of the industry, we can reassure you that you’ll probably be seeing more of the show in the future.
In any case, the earliest we could see a potential second season is early 2024, but we’d have to get some confirmation on the future during 2023. If not, 2025 remains a strong possibility as well; we also cannot rule out 2026 either. The fans are probably going ask for a new season and it is probably going to happen, but based on the tempo so far, we cannot really speculate when it might be happening.
What could be the plot of The Eminence in Shadow Season 2?
At this moment, we have absolutely no idea about the content of a potential second season of The Eminence in Shadow. Why? Well, as we’ve said, the second season hasn’t been greenlit yet, and with the first season still airing as of the time of writing, we have no idea where the season will end and that the writers plan to adapt in a potential second season.
What could be the cast of The Eminence in Shadow Season 2?
It’s still too early for us to discuss a potential second season of The Eminence in Shadow 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 happens. Now, the main characters that have appeared in the first, likely to return for a second season, include:
|Character||Japanese voice actor|
|Cid Kagenou / Shadow / John Smith||Seiichirō Yamashita|
|Claire Kagenou||Rina Hidaka|
|Alexia Midgar||Kana Hanazawa|
|Iris Midgar||Yōko Hikasa|
|Rose Oriana||Haruka Shiraishi|
|Nu (#13)||Maaya Uchida|
|Sherry Barnett||Saya Aizawa|
|Hyoro Gari||Yoshitsugu Matsuoka|
|Jaga Imo||Shin Matsushige|
