Platinum End Season 2 has been officially confirmed as the end of the story as told by the Platinum End manga series.
The Platinum End anime TV series will have a total of 24 episodes spread over two courses.
What is a ‘cour’, you may ask? For those unfamiliar with the lingo, a “cour” is a quarterly block of TV broadcasts based on the physical seasons usually consisting of 10 to 13 episodes.
In this case, Platinum End Season 2 is really Platinum End Part 2. It won’t be a “split-cour” anime, that’s when a single anime season takes a break of several months before resuming TV broadcasts.
The anime is animated by Studio Signal.MD, best known for Recover of an MMO Junkie and Cyborg 09: Call of Justice. The company also collaborated with other studios on FLCL Progressive.
In 2021, Studio Signal.MD also released Mars Red and Dragon Goes House-Hunting.
Platinum End Season 2/Part 2 will actually have a different lead director. The first part is directed by Hideya Takahashi (JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Golden Wind), while the second part is directed by Kazuchika Kise (Ghost in the Shell Arise).
Writer Shinichi Inotsume (Yona of the Dawn, Gleipnir, Gangsta JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure parts 1, 3 and 4) composes the series. Artist Kouji Oodate (No Game No Life, lead animator on Your Name) is the character designer. Composer Masahiro Tokuda (Deca-Dence, Cestvs: The Roman Fighter) wrote the music.
The Platinum End OP (opening) theme song music “Sense” is performed by BAND-MAID, while the ED (ending) “Kofukuron” is performed by Yuu Miyashita.
The Platinum End Part 2 OP has not yet been announced. The Part 2 ED “Last Straw” was performed by the group Kahaku Gokko.
Here’s the synopsis of the Platinum End story:
“While his classmates celebrate their high school graduation, the troubled Mirai Kakehashi is caught in darkness. Mirai lost his family in an accident and even struggled with the relatives who had him in the house. Desperate for everything, he throws himself off the roof of a building the day he graduates from high school. There, however, he meets an angel…?
Mirai’s battle begins just as he receives rescue from above. Now Mirai will face 12 other chosen humans in a battle in which the winner becomes the next god of the world. Mirai has an angel in his corner, but he may have to become a devil to survive.”
The Platinum End release date for the first episode is set for October 7, 2021, the fall 2021 anime season. The first season has been confirmed to stream on both Crunchyroll and FUNimation.

Platinum End Part 2 release date in winter 2022
As of the latest update, Studio Signal.MD or any company associated with the production of the anime has not officially confirmed the exact release date of Platinum End Season 2.
However, it has already been announced that the Platinum Part 2 release date will be January 2021, the Winter 2021 anime season.
