Bunshun Online, a Japanese weekly news magazine, recently published an article, which confirmed the rumors about Tokyo Revengers Season 2 being in production. The article mainly focused on the career and health issues surrounding the voice actor, Tatsuhisa Suzuki after his affair with a female fan came to light.
The official announcement might be made at Tokyo Revengers special event, ~Tokyo Manjikai Tachikawa Touring~, on Dec 18, 2021. All of the main Japanese voice actors will be in attendance, except Suzuki.

The article highlighted how there were doubts whether Suzuki would reprise his role in the second season of the anime. They quoted the message from a Tokyo Revengers anime official to Suzuki’s agency, I’m Enterprise, in which it was mentioned that the production of Season 2 had already begun.
“The second season of the series is currently in production and will be announced later this year. However, we do not know for sure if Suzuki will participate,” the message to Suzuki’s agency said.
Suzuki announced in August that he was taking a break from “all entertainment industry activities” and that he would withdraw from the role of the lead character Anos Voldigoad from The Misfit of Demon King Academy season 2. Yuichiro Umehara will take over the role of Anos.
