Dragon Ball Super Season 2: When Will New Episodes Come Out?

The popular action shonen is very much alive thanks to the new chapters of the Dragon Ball Super manga, and if you’ve been keeping up with the series, you know that a brand new season with new episodes is due. If you’ve been craving new episodes of Dragon Ball Super, here’s everything you need to know. 

When will new episodes of Dragon Ball Super be released? 

While the Dragon Ball Super manga continued to release new chapters month after month after the anime’s 131-episode run, fans are wondering when Toei Animation will produce new episodes for the popular anime series. So far, Toei hasn’t announced the return of Dragon Ball Super anime, but many have speculated that it will return in Winter 2021, three years after Dragon Ball Super: Broly premiered in Japan. Hopefully, the studio will make an official announcement by mid of 2021. 

Update: On May 2021, Toei Animation announced that a Dragon Ball Super feature film be released in 2022, but the animation company didn’t confirm if new episodes of the anime series will be released following the movie. 

Toei Animation seemingly confirms Season 2 of Dragon Ball Super

The new official website of Dragon Ball Super also featured Toei animator Florence Jay Dominguito, who’s been working with Toei Animation Philippines since 2011 and has been involved in various Dragon Ball projects. During one point in the interview, the animator was asked about his hopes and expectations for the future of the Dragon Ball franchise, and Florence responded, “As a fan, I’m really looking forward to new movies and merchandise. I’m also excited about the new anime that will continue Dragon Ball Super.”

Based on this machine-translated statement, it’s easy to jump to the conclusion that Dominguito may have indirectly confirmed Dragon Ball Super Season 2. However, there might be some significant differences in how his statement was translated. However, according to Japanese translator Ken Xyro, here’s what the animator said – “I’m also excited to see if there will be a new continuation of Dragon Ball Super TV anime.” 

Ryō Horikawa, the voice actor for Vegeta in the Japanese version, recently hinted that he’ll be returning for new episodes of Dragon Ball Super, but he didn’t reveal any specifics. In the tweet, Horikawa teased that he’d just left a meeting with Toei Animation but didn’t explain why. 

Here is the translation of @ryohorikawa ‘s tweet.

Warning: Minor spoilers for Galactic Patrol Prisoner Saga and Granolah the Survivor Saga ahead. 

Who would be the new villains in the new Dragon Ball Super episodes? 

If you’ve been keeping up with the Dragon Ball Super manga series, you already know that the arc following the Universal Survival saga is the Galactic Patrol Prisoner saga, which takes the Z-fighters to space and back to Earth, and introduces the villainous goat-looking wizard named Moro. A few years before the end of the Dragon Ball Super: Broly Saga, and around the destruction of Kid Buu by Goku, the Grand Supreme Kai’s seal on Moro’s magic broke, allowing him to beak out of the Galactic Patrol’s prison. The new episodes of Dragon Ball Super would most likely follow this saga, which just concluded in the manga in 2020. 

There are also a bunch of other prisoners who escaped from the Galactic Patrol’s prison, and the new episodes will most likely feature them fighting the Z-fighters on planet Earth. 

Of course, after Moro, the new season of Dragon Ball Super will introduce Granolah, but more details on that below. 

What’s the current saga in the Dragon Ball Super manga now? 

After the conclusion of the Galactic Patrol Prisoner arc, the Dragon Ball Super manga continues with a brand new arc called Granolah the Survivor Saga, which introduces Granolah, the sole survivor of the Cerealian race that was annihilated by the Saiyan army. This story is still ongoing in the manga, and new chapters are being released every month. You can read the latest chapters on Viz for free.  

What’s in the next chapter of Dragon Ball Super manga? 

In the latest chapter of Dragon Ball Super manga (Chapter 73), we see Goku and Granolah fight, and it’s a fast-paced one! The Cerealian warrior also revealed a surprising new technique. Based on what we saw at end of that chapter, Chapter 74 will see Vegeta fighting Granolah while Goku tries to recover from the Ceralian warrior’s devastating blow.

Will Goku unleash his Ultra Instinct form again? 

Goku unleashes his complete Ultra Instinct form during the Tournament of Power Saga while fighting the powerful Jiren, but at the end of the anime series, it seems that he had lost his ability to go into Ultra Instinct. After all, this powerful form was brought out by extreme stress in his battle against Jiren. 

If you’ve read the Galactic Patrol Prisoner Saga, you’d know that Goku’s Ultra Instinct form will return, but will he be able to fully master it so he can unleash it at will? You’d have to read the manga to find out. 

What about Vegeta? Will he get a new form? 

Although the manga doesn’t show Vegeta get an Ultra Instinct form, he still gets some serious training with the Yardrat, the same beings who taught Goku Instant Transmission. He also learns a new technique called the Forced Spirit Fission and uses it in his fight against Moro. 

Vegeta also trained with Whis, and it looks like he’s taking the god of destruction path to becoming stronger while Goku is taking the angel’s path. At the end of the latest chapter, Vegeta steps up to fight Granolah. 

Where can I watch Dragon Ball Super? 

All episodes of Dragon Ball Super are available to stream on Crunchyroll and Funimation, and if Toei Animation releases a new season, these major anime streaming platforms will most likely premiere them.
