Where does the Prison School Season 2 stand right now?
Ending with a lot of cliff-hangers, Season one of Prison School was quite popular and gained a lot of fans, which makes much more sense for a second season to happen.

Prison School Season 2: Everything you need to know about the franchise
As you all know, the majority of anime series are adapted from already existing source materials. For Prison School, the existing source material is a manga series of the same name. The first volume was published in 2011. The manga series has 28 volumes in total, the last volume being released in 2017, from which 9 volumes were covered for making season one which means almost 200 chapters are left uncovered and that should be more than enough for Prison School Season 2. Prison School was awarded the Best General Manga at the 37th Kodansha Manga Award.
Prison School Season One: Story So Far
The story of the show revolves around the events of an all ladies high school named Hachimitsu Private Academy. The school which is known for being excellent in education and very disciplined, admits 5 young boys – Kiyoshi Fujino, Takehito Gakuton Morokuzu, Shingo Wakamoto, Jouji Joe Nezu, and Reiji Andre Andou, to the all ladies school for the first time. Though the 5 young men were unknown to the fact that this school is an all-ladies school. But after they are admitted into the school, Kiyoshi discovers that they are the only boys in an all-girl school.
Later on, the 5 young men are caught in the act of voyeurism in the school’s washing region which results in them getting stuck between two choices – either they get expelled from the school or get sentenced to school prison for one month where they will remain under the eye of the Underground Student Council. Later on, Kiyoshi is overwrought when he finds out that all of his friends are masochists and are enjoying the punishments bestowed to them by their attractive yet cruel supervisors.
Prison School Season 2: When Will Season 2 Release?
At present, there are no official updates regarding Prison School season 2. Though the head of the first season, Tsutomu Mizoshima when asked about the arrival of Prison School Season 2, replied with a tweet from his official Twitter account. In the tweet, he said that he needed to continue with the Prison School season 2 but as of now has no clue about the arrival of Prison school season 2 with this he added a humiliating face emoji. Given the studio’s silence on the arrival of Prison School season 2, this response was kind of expected.
However, if the makers decide to release a season 2, then without a doubt the Japanese cast of the series will remain the same including Taishi Nakagawa, Galigali Galixon, Tokio Emoto, and the rest of the cast reprising their roles as the shows’ voice entertainers.
Although the Japanese name of the series was much appreciated and accepted, the English name faced a lot of criticism. Thus, it’s safe to say that the English cast won’t be returning for the voice-overs especially if the studio plans to give the Prison School Season 2 a green light.
After the release of season one, an original video animation of the show named, Prison School: Mad Wax was released in March 2016. Therefore, if the producers decide to release Prison School season 2 then it will be set after the events of the original video animation. Prison school season 2 will most likely showcase the young men’s life after being imprisoned in the school prison for one month.
No official announcements has been made for Prison School Season 2 yet. But the series is also not officially cancelled either, that means there is still hope for season 2. We can’t wait to see how these five young men prosper in an all ladies school and fans definitely want to see how the boys will adjust to an all-girls atmosphere. As informed earlier, there are no official statements or announcements regarding prison school season 2, but fans are still desperately clinging on to the hope that they will get a season 2 very soon.
