'The Devil Is A Part Timer' Season 2 Release Date Discussed By 'Hataraku Maou-sama!' Light Novel/Anime Author

Patrick Frye

Anime fans should be happy that The Devil Is A Part Timer Season 2 release date is even being discussed. The last episode aired a little over four years ago, and it's been a long wait for those wanting to watch how Sadao Maou aka Lord Satan bounces back. Hataraku Maou-sama! light novel author Satoshi Wagahara understands fans' frustrations, and he recently took the opportunity to discuss the possibility of Hataraku Maou-sama! Season 2 on Twitter.

The author began by noting that everyone wants to know if there's going to be a second season of The Devil Is A Part Timer. Every time Wagahara talks on Twitter or at a public autograph session, he always has people asking. Even his personal friends want to know. Wagahara says he always responds with "I don't know," but that's not the end of the discussion.

Wagahara always tells people that he is the biggest fan of his The Devil Is A Part Timer anime series. It may be "sad news" that The Devil Is A Part Timer Season 2 release date has yet to be confirmed but pushing the original author won't make the anime come out.

The Hataraku Maou-sama! author said, "Anime is big business, as well." The corporate committees responsible for green lighting are certainly monitoring the page view numbers on platforms like Niconico. They're aware of fans' continued interest in The Devil Is A Part Timer Season 2, and that was the driving force behind reuniting the anime cast to create a new anime audio drama called Maou, Suteneko wo Hirou(or The Devil Adopts A Stray Cat). If anime viewers wish to see the Demon King again, they need to keep generating big numbers.

However, Wagahara says he cannot promise this will cause The Devil Is A Part Timer Season 2 to be produced. The decision is out of his hands, and it's possible the higher-ups may not produce a The Devil Is A Part Timer sequel. Regardless, the author promises to put all of his effort into producing good work and continue writing The Devil Is A Part Timer light novels in order to meet the readers' demand.

In the end, the writer thanked everyone involved in the making of The Devil Adopts A Stray Cat."Thank you to all the people who listened," he said. "I'm really thankful to you! See you next time!"
