I covered The Devil is a Part Timer! just last month, and the exciting news of its anime adaptation getting a second season.
While there was a trailer, there was no release date for the sequel season. Looper came through with something of a prediction based on how long an anime in production can take to be completed in their 04/26/2021 article – The Devil Is A Part Timer Season 2 Release Date, Cast, And Plot – What We Know So Far – , Jonah Schuhart writing:
While Season 2 of “The Devil Is a Part-Timer!” was announced at the Kadokawa Corporation’s Light Novel Expo, with a trailer dropping on YouTube that same day, there is still no official date for the show’s upcoming release. The Cinemaholic estimates that Season 2 could likely be seen in early 2023, however, this is just a hypothesis. That being said, it is not an unfair one. Single seasons of anime often take multiple years to produce.
However, nothing concrete can be said without solid confirmation from White Fox or the show’s publishers. Funimation was responsible for streaming the first season during its original airing. It is unclear if this will continue to be the case, but it may be likely given that the company also announced Season 2 on the official Funimation blog. Likewise, they reveal no information regarding “The Devil Is a Part-Timer!” Season 2’s release date.

With a possible two year wait, it could be a decade between seasons when everything’s said and done. A long time, but not unheard of with anime. Mushishi received an anime adaptation back in 2005, covering a considerable amount of the manga’s existing material at the time, and wouldn’t cover the rest until a follow up anime series was released in 2014 (Mushishi – Next Passage), almost a decade later as well.
We can sit tight, and be content, as long as the end result is entertaining, fun, and as blissfully enjoyable like its predecessor was.
