Call Of The Night Season 2, are the vampires back?
Vampire-based stories are highly prevalent in modern culture, be it representation in movies or TV shows, and anime has also had its fair share.
Series like Hellsing Ultimate, Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure, and Blood+ have been critically acclaimed worldwide for portraying the blood-sucking buzzards.
While vampire-based animes have become less frequent, Summer 2022 was privy to one such series as the anime adaption of Kotoyama s’ manga, Call of the Night, which hit the small screens.
The plot follows teenager Kou Yamori who has been depressed since being rejected by a classmate and struggles to grasp the concept of love.
The gloomy Kou stops going to school, and because of his dissatisfying life, he begins wandering the lonesome streets at night.
During one insomnia-induced walk, Kou encounters a strange yet beautiful girl named Nazuna Nanakusa.
She explains to Kou that people with an unfulfilling day tend to stay awake at night to release their inhibitions.
Nazuna offers to help Kou and take him to her place to sleep, wherein they share a bed. Despite the unexpected help, Kou is uncomfortable and only pretends to doze off.
It’s then revealed that Nazuna is a vampire as she bites Kou on the neck and sucks his unusually-tasting blood.
Kou is worried that he will turn into a vampire, but Nazuna informs him that it is not that simple.
To become a vampire, one needs to be bitten by someone one loves, prompting Kou to abandon his loveless life and become a vampire by loving Nazuna.
Can Kou fall in love with Nazuna and escape his dreary past life is the central plot of the show.
Call of the Night Season One was a relative success, so much so post its conclusion, fans were already asking if there would be a second season or not.

WHAT IS THE CALL OF THE NIGHT SEASON 2 RELEASE DATE?

As of writing, there is no update from studio Liden Films on the renewal of Call of the Night Season 2.
|Call of the Night Season 1||8th July 2022|
|Call of the Night Season 2||Yet to be Announced|
As mentioned earlier, Call of the Night season one received positive reviews as it was the highest-rated supernatural romance series of Summer 2022.
Financially, the anime adaptation has seen to give a boost to the Call of the Night manga sales, enough even to land the series on Oricon’s Top 20 list for July.
Fans seem to enjoy the character dynamics of the protagonists, which is further evidenced by its IMDB user review ratings.
|Call of the Night Episode 1||7.7|
|Call of the Night Episode 2||7.6|
|Call of the Night Episode 3||7.8|
|Call of the Night Episode 4||7.7|
|Call of the Night Episode 5||7.5|
|Call of the Night Episode 6||7.6|
|Call of the Night Episode 7||8.3|
|Call of the Night Episode 8||7.4|

|Call of the Night Episode 11||8.2|
|Call of the Night Episode 12||7.7|
|Call of the Night Episode 13||8.0|
While the reviews and ratings are mostly in favor, a crucial factor for renewal will be the availability of studio and source material.
Unfortunately, the 2023 release schedule for studio Liden Films is stacked with as many as six new animes ready to premiere.
But in some ways, this is also positive news as we can see studio Liden Films is capable of handling multiple projects in a year which is essential for sequels.
The studio should not face any problems regarding lack of source material as, at most, eight volumes are available for producing Call of the Night Season 2.
Considering the busy schedule of Liden Films, it is unlikely that Call of the Night Season 2 will happen any time soon.
At best, we can hope for some updates on the Call of the Night season 2 trailer and Call of the Night season 2 release date by Summer 2024.
