In case there was any doubt, the official Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World- social media channels have confirmed it: the second half of Re:ZERO season 2 is set for January.
Alongside that confirmation came a fresh trailer for the back half the second season. The wait, my friends, begins.
The first half of Re:ZERO aired from July 8 to September 30. It was originally set for April, but, y’know, stuff. It’s currently one of Netflix Japan’s most popular anime series.
Here’s how Crunchyroll describes season 2 (includes spoilers for season 1):
Even after dying countless times, Subaru finally ended the threat of the White Whale and defeated the Witch Cult’s Sin Archbishop representing sloth, Petelgeuse Romaneeconti. But only shortly after overcoming a tragic ending and reuniting with his beloved Emilia, Subaru learns that Rem has been erased from this world, having fallen victim to the White Whale’s Fog of Elimination in the midst of Subaru’s death loop. With the White Whale now gone, Subaru and Emilia are forced to confront a reality they never dreamed would happen.
