Updated May 5, 2019: The Quintessential Quintuplets Season 2 confirmed! Updated article to reflect the news.
The Quintessential Quintuplets Season 2 has officially been confirmed to be in production! The news originally started as a rumor which claimed that the Gotoubun no Hanayome Season 2 anime would be announced at a special event held at Yurakucho Yomiuri Hall in Tokyo on May 5, 2019 (5-5-2019; get it?).
The cast for The Quintessential Quintuplets anime was in attendance as well as Aya Uchida, who performed the ending theme for the first season of the 5Toubun anime series.
The rumor started with Moetron, which is known for being accurate regarding anime news. Moetron claimed on Twitter that “[t]he Quintessential Quintuplets S2 anime may be in production” and that “[t]here’s a special event planned for May 5 where it will likely be made official.”
It’s not surprising that the rumor turned out to be true since the Blu-Ray and DVD box sets for the first season sold well in addition to the anime being popular on streaming platforms like Crunchyroll.
What’s more, there is plenty of source material for The Quintessential Quintuplets Season 2 since the anime adapted less than half of the Gotoubun no Hanayome manga series by creator Negi Haruba.
What’s unknown is whether animation studio Tezuka Productions could return to produce Gotoubun no Hanayome Season 2 or if another studio will produce the anime sequel.
Tezuka Productions hasn’t announced any future projects except for the Astro Boy Reboot anime, which will be co-produced with French studios Caribara Productions and Shibuya Productions.
