Will there be a second season of Devils’ Line?
The subject that fans are most curious about is, is the series confirmed for the second season? Unfortunately, we cannot give good news. Series creator Platinum Vision did not give the green light for the second season. There has been no cancellation or renewal yet for the second season from broadcasters. In this case, we have investigated some rumors for you and evaluated the next season’s possibilities.
First, let’s examine the source material. Because if the manga, which anime generally uses as a source, does not have enough script for a new season, it is impossible to see the second season. However, Devils Line passes the test in this regard. The series has a 14 volume manga that has been published so far and is still ongoing at the time of writing. Only a small portion of this resource material was used for the first season. So there is enough material for a few more seasons. But is it enough to see a second season?
Unfortunately, the manga is not the only parameter. It is the ratings of the series and financial processes that are more prominent. Devils Line’s shortcomings start here. Unfortunately, the series did not get enough appreciation from the reviews. Although it has a fan base, the series falls short of other anime on Hulu TV worldwide. In terms of ratings, broadcasting a second season of the series will pose a risk for broadcasters. It is very unlikely to see the second season of the series, but the anime world is full of surprises. Depending on a future renewal, we can see the new season of the series in late 2021.
