The anime adaptation of the manga That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime from Fuse and Mitz Vah got underway in Japan with its October 1st, 2018 premiere and we learned not long after that more was coming. With some OADs having been produced and coming out, a second season was set for October 2020 while the back half will show up in April 2021. That, sadly, is being impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic as well as the show has now moved to a January 2021 debut for the first cour and July 2021 for the second cour. Additionally, The Slime Diaries: That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime is getting bumped as well from its January 2021 date to April 2021.
Crunchyroll previously confirmed that they’ll be bringing out the second season this fall when it hits Japan. Crunchyroll will be streaming it to their viewers in North America, Central America, South America, Europe, Africa, Oceania, and the Middle East.
Funimation also confirmed that they’ll be handling the dub of the second season on their service, which is how the first season was split as well.
