There are a bunch of premieres lined up for this year’s Anime Expo, and HIDIVE threw another on the table with the announcement of a world premiere for The Eminence in Shadow 2nd Season. The continuation of the anime adapting the light novel series by Daisuke Aizawa. To make matters even more interesting, this will be the first-ever “dual world premiere event,” with separate English subtitled and dubbed premieres for the first episode of the second season on July 1 and July 4, respectively.
The subtitled premiere on July 1 will include Japanese cast member Seiichiro Yamashita (Cid/Shadow), while the dub premiere on July 4 will include English dub cast members Adam Gibbs (Cid/Shadow) and Christina Kelly (Alpha). Check out the details below.

HIDIVE streams The Eminence in Shadow anime and sums up the second season like so:
Everything has been going according to plan, but the hour of awakening draws near. Cid Kageno and Shadow Garden investigate the Lawless City, a cesspool where the red moon hangs low in the sky and three powerful monarchs rule the streets. The true draw for Cid, however, is one who can draw blood–the Blood Queen, a vampire who has slumbered in her coffin for eons. Her awakening approaches, and Cid could finally face a day of reckoning.
