Prison School, a popular Japanese cartoon show, has been the talk of the town since its first season. The show is based on a manga story written by Akira Hiramoto and has been adapted into an anime by J.C. Staff. The first season of the show was aired between July and September 2015, and it has been quite a while since fans have been eagerly waiting for the second season.
Prison School Season 2 The Story So Far
The story revolves around five male students – Kiyoshi, Gakuto, Shingo, Joe, and Andre – who attend the previously all-girls Hachimitsu Academy. The school is notoriously strict, and after the boys are caught trying to peep into the female students’ bathing area, they are forced by the Underground Student Council to go to the school’s prison for a month. If they try to escape, more time will be added to their sentence. If they try to escape a third time, they will be expelled from the school.
Despite its raunchy nature, Prison School is an anime that doesn’t take itself too seriously and goes all in on its premise. The ‘protagonists’ are masochistic jerks who enjoy the punishment they receive, and the anime’s first season concluded with an interesting turn of events.
What to Expect from Prison School Season 2?
The first season ended at the conclusion of the boys’ imprisonment arc, with the boys getting their freedom and the Underground Society Club going to prison instead. The second season, if it happens, would focus on the USC’s imprisonment arc. This arc focuses on the struggles of USC, as the previous abusers find themselves abused, and the Official Student Council are introduced as the new villain of the story, with an interpersonal history between both clubs.
Prison School Season 2 Release Date
As of now, there is no official news on whether Prison School Season 2 will released. There have been a few rumors in the past about a potential follow-up season, but as for anything official, neither the manga author nor any of the companies associated with the project have said anything about it. Therefore, Prison School: Season 2 is looking pretty unlikely.
However, the manga series has been completed as of 2017 and is the best option for those who can’t wait to find out how the story ends. There is enough material for at least two more seasons, possibly even three, depending on the tempo.
Prison School Season 2 Cast
The cast of Prison School Season 2 is expected to include the following characters and their respective voice actors:

Please note that this is based on the cast of the first season and the actual cast for the second season may vary.
While the future of Prison School Season 2 remains uncertain, fans continue to hope for good news in 2023. The secret student council could be at the center of the next season, and the storyline could include more sitcoms. Until then, fans can revisit the first season and the manga series to satiate their curiosity.
