Solo Leveling Anime Producer Reveals What To Expect In Season 2


In an interview with Aniplex’s After Hours program on May 10, 2024, which was hosted by Sally Amaki, Solo Levling producer Sota Furuhashi shared hints regarding the exciting developments that’s in store for the upcoming season 2 of the anime.

Solo Levling season 1 focused on the main character’s journey of growth and self-discovery, and Furuhashi acknowledged that this will continue in the second season as well. However, he hinted at a broader narrative scope.

This will include shining a spotlight on the supporting characters of the series, suggesting that fans can expect more backstory and development for those who have been supporting the protagonist on his journey.

Furuhashi also went on to say that this focus on side characters will give viewers a more 360-degree look at the world of Solo Leveling.

In season 1, it focuses a lot on the main character’s development, and of course that continues in season 2, but this time we’ll also turn the spotlight on on the supporting characters and fill in the story a bit more as we wrap things up, so you’ll get a more 360-degree look at the world of Solo Leveling in season 2.
