The Spy x Family manga from Tatsuya Endo has been doing pretty well in Japan and abroad as a bit of a crossover property with some real potential. The series saw an April 9th, 2022 premiere and it’s planned for the spring and fall season for its twenty-five-episode run. To the shock of everyone involved, the property proved popular! So much so that a second season was given the green light pretty quickly at the end of December 2022 with plans for a 2023 debut.
With the second TV season previously set for a fall 2023 debut, the official site previously set an October 7th, 2023 premiere date for it. The latest update works a bit more of the recent storyline arc with the lyric video for the 34th episode for the song “[Until the End]” by (K)NoW_NAME.
The series was directed by Kazuhiro Furuhashi with Wit Studio and CloverWorks handling the production. Kazuaki Shimada is on board to adapt the designs.
The Japanese cast includes Takuya Eguchi as Loid Forger, Saori Hayami as Yor Forger, Atsumi Tanezaki as Anya Forger, Hiroyuki Yoshino as Franky Franklin, Yuko Kaida as Sylvia Sherwood, and Kazuhiro Yamaji as Henry Henderson.
The English cast includes Alex Organ as Loid Forger, AKA Agent Twilight, Natalie Van Sistine as Yor Forger, and Megan Shipman as Anya Forger.
The property began in Shonen Jump+ in 2019 and has had digital chapters released in English at the same time. There are currently eight volumes in print in Japan with it ongoing; sales are over eleven million copies in print so far. Check out our review of the first eleven chapters.
