To determine the possibility of another anime season we have to check some factors.

  • Availability of the source materials
  • The popularity of the anime series on social media platforms

1. Availability of the source materials

The most important factor for getting another season is the availability of the source materials. The source material is often the printed manga and/or light novel series.

In case of Future Diary, it is manga series. Mirai Nikki or Future Diary is originally a Japanese manga series both written and illustrated by manga artist Esuno Sakae.

The series started publishing in 2006 in monthly Shonen Ace magazine by Kadokawa Shoten publishing House.

The anime followed suit in the latter half of 2011. A 26 episode long anime series with an OVA episode was produced by Asread studio. The anime aired till April 2012.

The eleventh volume of the manga was published in 2010. The manga artist had created three more side story mangas. They are Future Diary: Mosaic, Future Diary: Paradox and Future Diary: Redial.

Each of them clearing doubts and questions from the main manga series and the last one providing the epilogue. Thus the series ended totally in 2013.

Even though all 26 volumes of the manga were not used up in the making of anime series. The anime gave all the answers in the OVA episode. The OVA was named the same name as the epilogue manga side story.

So, the series in anime as well can be considered almost complete. And that is a bummer because this can hit the nail in the coffin to get a Future diary season 2 release date.

2. Popularity in the social media platforms

The Future Diary is a freaking popular show. Even after nearly a decade of the release, the popularity has not reduced. On MyAnimeList the popularity rank of the anime is 22 with more than 1,610,000 members. Any anime that ranks in the top 10 of MyAnimeList is very popular.

But in the case of reviews, they are mixed. Some fans have rated 3 and 4, some has given the anime a strong 9.

Future Diary is a horror psychopath anime somewhat like Death Note. The difference is in the case of Death Note the plot has some semblance. In Future Diary, sometimes we don’t even know what is happening and why.

It is an anime you will either like or hate. Nonetheless, it still bears the hype.

So then there are some possibilities to get Future Diary season 2?

So then there are some possibilities to get Future Diary season 2

A decade has been passed. The anime has all the answers. The manga is finished and there is no need to sell the source material. The chance to get Future Diary season 2 is very unlikely. If only due to the popularity Asread decides to make a season, but not very soon. Maybe in 2022 or 2023.


There are no official statements from the producers. But if they release any info we will be the first to let you know. You can watch Future Diary on Crunchyroll.
