Classroom of the Elite is finally coming back after several years and it has set its release date for Season 2 with a new poster!
The first season that was based on Shogo Kinugasa and Shunsaku Tomose’s original light novel series ended its run quite a few years ago, so many fans had actually given up hope for a proper return. It was then suddenly announced earlier this year that not only was the anime returning for a second season this July as part of the summer 2022 anime schedule, but that there will be a third season planned for a release next year also.
The new season was previously confirmed for a release this July, but a new poster and announcement has confirmed that Classroom of the Elite will be kicking off season two on 4 July in Japan. Crunchyroll has also previously announced that they have licensed the new season for an international release alongside the episodes airing in Japan, so now fans can get ready knowing that it won’t be too much longer of a wait before the new episodes kick off.
Seiji Kishi and Hiroyuki Hashimoto are returning to direct both season two and three (which is scheduled to release some time in 2023) for Studio Lerche. The cast from the first season is also expected to return for both of these new seasons (which are planned to adapt the entire first year from the original light novels), so if you wanted to catch up before the new episodes premiere this July you can find Classroom of the Elite now streaming with Crunchyroll.
Here’s the official synopsis of the series: Kiyotaka Ayanokoji has just enrolled at Tokyo Koudo Ikusei Senior High School, where it’s said that 100 per cent of students go on to college or find employment. But he ends up in Class 1-D, which is full of all the school’s problem children. What’s more, every month, the school awards students points with a cash value of 100,000 yen, and the classes employ a laissez-faire policy in which talking, sleeping, and even sabotage are permitted during class. One month later, Ayanokoji, Horikita, and the students of Class D learn the truth of the system in place within their school.
An all-new season of the hilarious animated comedy, Birdgirl, premieres 19 June on Adult Swim. Episodes are available the next day on HBO Max.
Still not learning from their mistakes, Judy Ken Sebben and the Birdteam attempt to navigate the troubles of modern corporations, tackling everything from ethics in new tech to cancel culture and rejuvenating skin sack health fads. Will they fail? Spectacularly! But, according to the Adult Swim press notes, sometimes it’s not about the solutions we come up with, it’s about the new problems we make along the way.
Birdgirl executive producer and co-creator Erik Richter said, “In season two we wanted to drill down on the idea of superheroes as co-workers and found that putting Birdgirl and her team in the many awkward and uncomfortable situations we all endure is endlessly inspiring.”
The half-hour 2D animated comedy series stars Paget Brewster (Criminal Minds, How I Met Your Father) as Judy Ken Sebben/Birdgirl; Rob Delaney (Catastrophe) as Brian; Sonia Denis (Set It Up) as Evie; John Doman (Blue Valentine) as Dog With Bucket Hat; Kether Donohue (You’re the Worst) as Gillian; Negin Farsad (NPR’s Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me!) as Meredith; Tony Hale (The Mysterious Benedict Society) as Paul; and River L. Ramirez (Los Espookys) as Charley.
Guest stars this season include Andy Daly, Julie Dove, Marc Evan Jackson, Toks Olagundoye, Paul F. Tompkins, DaVine Joy Randolph, and Mae Whitman.
Birdgirl is executive produced by Richter (Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law) and Christina Miller. The show is produced by Adult Swim’s Williams Street Productions with animation by Global Mechanic.
