There is no official announcement of the release date for No Game No Life Season 2, so no release date for this anime series can be known.
Will No Game No Life have a season 2, and when is it coming out?
Whether No Game No Life Season 2 is planned for 2022, along with the possible release date, will be discussed in this post, but first, have a look at some basic information:
It is a fantastic isekai anime series that combines gaming elements. Shiro and Sora are the two main characters of this anime.
A gamer duo, Shiro and Sora, a stepbrother and sister duo, view the world as nothing more than a game. One day, they are challenged by Tet, a god from another reality, to compete against him in a chess game.
Over 12 episodes of the anime series No Game No Life season 1 have been produced so far. The first season aired between April and June of 2014. No Game No Life: Zero is also a film from 2017.
No Game No Life: Zero is an interesting movie with a lot of fun, but it’s not a sequel to the first season. I consider it more of a prequel.
Many fans of No Game No Life are anxiously waiting to find out if and when Season 2 of the anime will be released.
We now need to determine whether No Game No Life will have a season 2 and what the release date of No Game No Life Season 2 will be.
How Can We Find Out If No Game No Life Season 2 Will Be Released?
Looking at the source material status and whether the anime made a good profit will be the best indicator of whether No Game No Life Season 2 will be released or not.
In 95% of the cases, that information allows us to determine if an anime series will continue and estimate the release date.
Check some of my research on some of the anime sequels. Below are some examples:

You will learn in this article whether No Game No Life season 2 will be announced or released in 2022.
First, let’s look at the source material.
No Game No Life Season 2 Light Novel & Manga
Based on a successful light novel, No Game No Life anime is known as Nō Gēmu Nō Raifu in Japan.
Yū Kamiya is the author and illustrator of the No Game No Life light novel series.
What are the numbers of volumes of No Game No Life?
As of February 2022, eleven volumes of the light novel series No Game No Life have been published in Japan.
A manga adaptation of No Game No Life is also available. The manga only has two volumes, one from 2013 and one from 2018. The manga No Game No Life, Please was also released in 2017 as a side series.
Has No Game No Life Light Novel been completed?
There will still be light novels in 2022 that continue the No Game No Life series. Japanese light novel author Yuu Kamiya (Clockwork Planet) published the latest volume in November 2021.
At the end of volume 11, the NGNL story will enter its final phase, so it will conclude soon as per the author. The release date of No Game No Life Light Novel volume 12 has not yet been announced.
Which book should I read after 1st Season of No Game No Life anime?
Light novel volume four of No Game No Life follows the first season. Volumes 1 through 3 were adapted for the first season. No Game No Life: Zero movie adapted volume 6.
You can continue reading No Game No Life light novel Volume 4 in English if you want to start from where No Game No Life Season 1 ended.
According to these figures, NGNL’s second season will begin on volume 4, and the end will be on volume 7 since it used volume 6.
It is, therefore, possible for No Game No Life to continue for the second season in 2022.

Profitability And Sales Figures of No Game No Life
It’s because of the lack of profit and money that 90% of anime series never go beyond one season.
The profitability and sales figures of No Game No Life are therefore very important to examine.
No Game No Life Blu-ray sales: how well did they do?
There were approximately 8,800 copies sold per disk of the first season of No Game No Life. I think that is a good number.
The Blu-ray sales for 2014 have been pretty good, and these figures do not include the English release of No Game No Life Blu-ray.
It is rare to find anime series that sell close to 10,000 disks per season and those that do get new seasons.
No Game No Life Light Novel: How well does it sell?
There were 165,00 copies sold of No Game No Life Volume 10, and 85,000 copies were sold of No Game No Life Volume 11.
While that is far lower than what this series used to sell, that is still a good number for 2022.
While digital sales may be a factor, the majority of the drop is likely due to the long hiatus. Though there is only a handful of series selling close to 100,000, sales are good nonetheless.
How many copies of No Game No Life are in print?
Six million copies of No Game No Life have been sold as of 19 Aug 2021.
This light novel series is among the top 40 most popular of all time.
If the No Game No Life light novel was released more frequently, this series would be easily in the top 20.
What was the box office take for the movie?
Box office revenue from No Game No Life: Zero is 700,000,000 Japanese Yen. That’s approximately $6 million.
6 million dollars of box office take is great for a series that are based on a light novel with just one season is enough to promote it.
Additionally, almost 45,000 Blu-ray copies of the film were sold, which is a great number for a film.
Is there merchandise available for No Game No Life?
Over 55 figurines are included in the set, which is a good number. In addition, there are more than 550 pieces of merchandise are available for this series. That is a lot of merchandise.
In terms of merchandise and figurines, No Game No Life did really well. Very few anime series get as much merchandise and figurines. A lot of stuff was also made for the movie.
As we can see, this was a profitable series, so money and profit will not be a problem for No Game No Life season 2.
If you enjoy NGNL Series, I highly recommend checking out No Game No Life merchandise.
What is the release date of No Game No Life Season 2?
Season 2 of No Game No Life can be released as early as 2023, but it is more likely to be released in early 2024.
This series makes a lot of money, and also source material is enough for a second season.
It would shock me if Kadokawa did not want to produce a second season. I find it difficult to imagine how the second season of NGNL could not be profitable.
It’s simple as that why No Game No Life season two is taking so long. The series went on hiatus during that time. There were several health issues are associated with the author.
NGNL’s story is now entering its final stage, after a hiatus of several months. I feel more confident now that the series will get the two seasons it needs to finish the anime.
I would expect to hear about a new No Game No Life anime project around 2022 or early 2023, assuming the author is feeling better.
If I found any update on the official No Game No Life Twitter account, I’ll update this post.
Ultimately, we should hear something about No Game No Life Season 2 this year or in early 2023.
Additionally, check the following anime series whether they are receiving new seasons or not:
- Akame Ga Kill Season 2
- That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime Season 3
- Noragami Season 3
- Wise Man’s Grandchild Season 2

Because the second season of No Game No Life has not yet been announced for 2022, there is no trailer to watch.
If you like the NGNL series, you should also watch the trailer for No Game No Life: Zero.
