While the reviews, ratings, and profits are favorable, a crucial factor for renewal will be the availability of studio and source material.

The good news is that source material should not be a problem as more than six volumes are available to produce Land Of The Lustrous Season 2.

Currently, studio Orange has Beastars: Final Season scheduled for 2024 and has been partnering with Netflix for new series since releasing Land Of The Lustrous in 2017.

Thus, It’s apparent that Studio Orange has moved on to new and much more lucrative projects with the streaming platform. 

All in All, it is highly unlikely that Land Of The Lustrous Season 2 will be renewed and can be considered canceled at this point.

The only hope for Land Of The Lustrous Season 2 is for a new studio to pick it up or possibly for Netflix to take an interest in a sequel due to its popularity and demand.

Either way, expecting any updates on the Land Of The Lustrous Season 2 trailer and the Land Of The Lustrous Season 2 release date will just be another waiting game.
