Re: Zero is a fan-favorite anime from 2016 that immediately took off as one of the anime of the season that year. However, there was always a doubt about whether we would get a second season or not. Let’s face it; even though there are lots of shows that have a story to tell, we don’t get second seasons often.
It’s not something unheard. With Re: Zero, the fans feared the same. However, we got an OVA back in 2019, which told you that the show was going to return and that they have plans. So along with a new OVA, recently, it was announced that Re: Zero will be getting a second season very soon.
At the Kadokawa booth at Anime Japan 2019, Tappei Nagatsuki and Shinichirou Ootsuka’s popular Isekai anime called Re: Zero Kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu, got a second season.
Lots of characters are going to return in the upcoming season, and along with that, we’ll also see some new ones introduced. We’re told characters such as Subaru Natsuki, Emilia, Pack, Rem, Ram, Beatrice, and Roswell L. Mathers will be returning to the show. To get the fans even more excited for that upcoming season, we got a teaser trailer as well. The teaser shows Subaru walking through dead bodies, ready to face some girl dressed in all black.
As far as a update for Re: Zero Season 2 goes, we don’t have one yet. However, what we do know is that the show will be back sooner than one may think. I’d like to believe that we’ll get the show by Winter 2020. Fall 2019 also seems like a decent window, but a release before that seems hard in my books.

Fans are anxiously waiting for the anime series to return with its second season, although there is no official news coming out about it. Nonetheless, the novel series has now completed the nineteenth volume. The nineteenth volume was released recently in Japan. The first season comprised of first nine volumes, so there is plenty of stories left.
If you want to know more about the second season, you might want to read the tenth volume of the novel, which was recently translated. The tenth volume came out on 18 June 2019, which will give you a preview of the second season of Re: Zero. The show might release the second season by the end of this year, although early 2020 release is also possible.
