The summer 2018 anime series Cells at Work announced previously that a second season was in the work and also that it’s adapting the Cells at Work! Code Black spinoff. Both of those shows got underway in January but now the folks at Crunchyroll have revealed that they’ll be streaming them as well. The plan is to launch both the second season of the main series and the Code Black series on February 6th, 2021. They’ll launch at 12pm and 12:30pm respectively with availability set for North America, Central America, South America, The Caribbean, Australia, New Zealand, UK, Ireland, South Africa.

It looks like this won’t be a binge-catch-up but will be from the first episodes going forward.

The series is directed by Hideyo Yamamoto based on the series composition and scripts by Hayashi Mori. Eiji Abiko is on board with the character designs and LIDEN Films is handling animation production.

The Japanese cast announced so far includes Junya Enoki as Red Blood Cell while Yoko Hikasa is White Blood Cell. Kenjiro Tsuda is serving as the narrator. Additional casting includes Hekiru Shiina as Macrophage, Sarah Emi Bridcutt as Liver Cell, and Daisuke Hirakawa as Brain Cell.

The first series was directed by Kenichi Suzuki based on the series composition by Yuuko Kakihara. Takahiko Yoshida handled the character design and served as the chief animation director with the animation produced by David Production.

The manga began in winter 2015 and has five volumes released so far.
