It's time for Jujutsu Kaisen season 2 and fans can't wait.


It's a classic tale: boy swallows a demon's finger, boy gets cursed, boy joins demon-hunting school to find the demon's other body parts and exorcise said curse.

Same old, same old, except Jujutsu Kaisen is anything but boring. When season 1 debuted in 2020, it quickly rose up the ranks to become one of anime's most popular new shows in a very long time.

Anticipation is high for Yuji Itadori's sophomore year, so join us as we head back to school and break down everything we know so far about Jujutsu Kaisen season 2.

How many episodes will Jujutsu Kaisen season 2 have?

Like the first season, these new episodes will arrive in two batches, which means we're most likely going to have 24 episodes in total this time around again as well.

The two cours (as they’re also known) will air back to back, meaning fans can expect new Yuji and Gojo content well into 2024.

Crunchyroll has confirmed that season 2 will be told over two consecutive cours, with the first part of the story recounting Gojo’s and Geto’s past in the “Hidden Inventory / Premature Death” arc.

The official synopsis reads: "This is the innocent spring that the two strongest lost forever. Itadori Yuji took Ryomen Sukuna into his own body in June 2018. Okkotsu Yuta freed Orimoto Rika from her curse in December 2017. And now it's spring 2006. Gojo Satoru and Geto Suguru, two peerless jujutsu sorcerers from Jujutsu High, have been given two missions by Tengen, an immortal known as the cornerstone of the jujutsu community.

"One mission is the escorting and erasure of the "Star Plasma Vessel", Amanai Riko, the girl chosen as the best match to merge with Tengen. So the two of them set out on their escort mission in order to keep the jujutsu community going, but an assassin calling himself Fushiguro interferes in an attempt to assassinate the Star Plasma Vessel. The pasts of Gojo and Geto, the ones who would later be known as the most powerful jujutsu sorcerer and the most evil curse user, are about to be revealed…"

Season 2 is directed by Shota Goshozono.
