What is the plotline of Tower of God and what will be?
Bam is a boy who has seen nothing but a dark cave, dirty clothing, and an unreachable light. His life changes when someone named Rachel comes toward him from out of the light. After being close friends with Rachel, she learns from her various things about the outside world. But when Rachel tells her that she must leave to climb the tower, Bam’s world changes. Swearing to follow him no matter what, he sets his sights on the tower, and a miracle happens. Thus, Bam’s journey, a young boy who was not chosen by the tower but opened the doors on his own, begins.
We think Chruncyroll broke new ground by adapting Tower of God to anime. We can say that the part of his manga that has not yet been adapted is more exciting. It is a fact that we have a lot more to see because we only saw the first season. It cannot be denied that it has high potential.
There are very original characters in the series. The Jahad princesses who have been given swords by the king of Jahad attract everyone’s attention. Bam and his friends also won everyone’s admiration. Especially the intelligence of the character named Khun is worth seeing.
Will there be a second season of Tower of God?
The question of whether there will be a new season of the anime was one of the most curious questions, and the good news came in line with our expectations. During the Crunchyroll Expo event taking place at the time of writing, on August 6, 2022, Crunchyroll announced that the anime would have a second season. The first trailer for the second season has also been shared. Crunchyroll will stream the season, and more details about the 2nd season of Tower of God will be revealed soon. The creator congratulated the anime’s renewal with the following words and expressed his excitement.

The anime of Tower of God was announced as a manhwa adaptation. Generally, animes use manga as source material. Here, too, the situation is not so different. Our series is an adaptation of Korean manga. So, is there enough stock material for more than the second season?
The Tower of God manga began airing in 2010 and it is still ongoing today. It has been translated into 28 languages and has 4.5 billion impressions in total. We can say that the manhwa series has made an impact worldwide as much as the anime of Tower of God. The manhwa series aired on Webtoons and it consists of 547 chapters in total at the time of writing. The 78 chapters are adapted into the Tower of God’s first season, and the most popular part of the manhwa has not been adapted yet. There is plenty enough source material for the second season of the series, and it looks like the source material is sufficient for more seasons.
We see that Tower of God is among the 200 most popular anime, according to Myanimelist. Popularity is the most important thing after source material availability. It has about 100k followers on Twitter, and Myanimelist and Google search data show that anime is very popular worldwide, and we think this popularity deserves more seasons. We see that animes with official accounts with over 100k followers on Twitter do not have much problem in season renewals. The Misfit of Demon King Academy which has a similar follower number on Twitter is renewed for a second season just like Tower of God.
When is the release date of the second season?
The new season of the anime has just been announced on August 6, 2022. As of September 4, 2022, Although an official release date for a new season has not been announced yet, it is possible to speculate on this issue. Animes usually don’t tell new season release dates during renewal announcements, and it can take up to a year for the season to air after the renewal.
The anime’s first season was announced in August 2019 and aired in April 2020. If a similar situation occurs, Tower of God Season 2 may be released towards the middle of 2023. We will update this part of our article when the official release date is released. However, if you are too impatient to find out what happened after the first season of Tower of God anime, you can read the manhwa series on Webtoons.
Is there a released trailer for the second season?
The series has not been approved for the second season, so a trailer has not been released. But we are sure that there is work on this somewhere, and we think the sequel has already begun to be adapted to the anime. We will share the updates with you soon.
