The Ancient Magus' Bride will have a second season, according to TWIN ENGINE. April 2023 is when it is expected to be released. Along with the news, a fresh anime peek clip was made available.
The core visual idea and outline were provided by the manga series' author Kore Yamazaki, and the new teaser image was created by Kohei Tokuoka. The first season of the anime series launched in 2017, with animation created by WIT STUDIO. Studio Kafka released a three-part OAD in 2021. For the upcoming second season, Studio Kafka will once again serve as the animation production company, with the following key personnel: Kazuaki Terasawa (The Ancient Magus Bride OAD director) in the role of director; Aya Takaha, Yoko Yonaiyama, and Chiaki Nishinaka in the role of screenwriters; Hirotaka Kato (The Ancient Magus' Bride character designer) in the role of character designer; and Junichi Matsumoto in the role of music composer.
Crunchyroll describes the first season as:
Hatori Chise has lived a life full of neglect and abuse, devoid of anything resembling love. Far from the warmth of family, she has had her share of troubles and pitfalls. Just when all hope seems lost, a fateful encounter awaits her. When a man with the head of a beast, wielding strange powers, obtains her through a slave auction, Chise’s life will never be the same again. The man is a “magus,”a sorcerer of great power, who decides to free Chise from the bonds of captivity. The magus then makes a bold statement: Chise will become his apprentice–and his bride!
