Darling In The Franxx Season 2 Release Date: Is The Show Renew For Second Season?

Darling in the Franxx (also called Drin In Za Furankisu in Japanese) is a CloverWorks and Studio Trigger-animated science fiction anime television series. Darling in the Franxx was announced for the first time at the Anime Expo in July 2017, and the first season launched on January 13, 2018.

A manga adaptation with illustrations by Kentarou Yabuki was also produced almost immediately after the broadcast of Season 1. Viewers regarded Season 1 as a success, and it swiftly grew to notoriety; since then, fans have been awaiting word of a second season. Here is what we currently know about Season 2’s chances.


Darling In The Franxx Season 2 Release Date

Even though the series’s second season has not yet been announced, there are many grounds to believe it will return. Studio Trigger and CloverWorks collaborated on the series production, which debuted in 2018. 

After the first season aired, both the audience and the critics had conflicting reactions to the show, primarily due to the ending episode. Because the show will soon be renewed for a second season, it will likely be a collaborative venture once more. 

However, before drawing any conclusions, it is usually prudent to await official confirmation. Therefore, keep an eye on this space, as we will update it as soon as any official information surfaces. Our best estimate is that the second season of Darling in the Franxx will premiere in 2023.


Darling In The Franxx Season 2 Cast

Hiro: Hiro, the show’s protagonist, is a human Parasite with the codename “016.” During pilot training, Hiro’s image as a genius disintegrated after he failed to synchronize with his training partner.

Zero Two:  Zero Two, the show’s secondary protagonist, is a human-Sapiens hybrid who is part of an elite team fighting Klaxosaurs.

Darling In The Franxx Season 2 Plot

The series is post-apocalyptic and based in a distant future where Klaxosaurs have nearly driven humanity to extinction. Humanity’s remains thrive in gigantic fortress cities known as Plantations, but survival comes at a price. 


Relationships and reproduction have ceased to exist in the Plantations, inhabited by adults who are now immortal due to technological advances. Instead, youngsters known as “Parasites” are developed artificially to pilot huge mechas known as Franxxs and defend against the Klaxosaur danger.

In this setting, the story follows Hiro, a little child. Hiro, who aspires to be a Franxx pilot, loses his self-confidence and motivation after failing an aptitude test and skips his graduation ceremony, seeking refuge in a wilderness. 

Hiro finds a mysterious female in the jungle who introduces herself as Zero Two, a codename rumored to belong to an infamous Franxx pilot known as the “Partner Killer.” 

Before Hiro could even come to grips with the issue, Klaxosaurs attacked the plantation where he was. Zero Two leaves quickly in her mecha to combat the threat, but her teammate is killed in the ensuing battle, and the Franxx crashes near Hiro. 

Zero Two then requests Hiro’s assistance to repel the attack, and Hiro accepts. To redeem himself, Hiro resolves to continue their alliance after effortlessly defeating the Klaxosaur. The series covers Hiro’s many missions with Zero Two as his companion.
