At the Liella! What A Wonderful Dream concert that took place on the 13th, it was announced that the second season of Love Live! Superstar!! will be airing starting in July of this year, airing on both NHK and E Television.
Other announcements made at the concert include another concert tour series for the What A Wonderful Dream series set to take place at the Osaka-Jo Hall on June 4th.
You can watch the announcement video for both that was shown at the concert below:
What do we know about Love Live! Superstar!! Season 2 so far?
The initial announcement of the second season was made on October 24th of last year, just about a month after the conclusion of the first season. The trailer talked about the continuation of the series as the “story that we brought to life” to help “everyone go to the new starry sky!” The trailer also featured new backgrounds from Yuigaoka High School and new versions of the stages featured throughout the series.
Besides the new backgrounds, not much has been revealed about the plot of the upcoming season. However, considering how far Liella! came in achieving their idol dreams by bringing new students to Yuigaoka, it’s assumed that they will follow in the footsteps of all previous seasons of Love Live! and tackle the competition (the Love Live!) in this coming season.
The cover of Snow Halation at the end of Season 1 of Superstar!!, the namesake of School Idol Project Season 2, and the song that represents their journey to win the Love Live, may serve as foreshadowing for this upcoming event.

Will the series be dubbed?
Unlike all other seasons of Love Live! released so far, no English dub is currently available on Funimation. Even Nijigasaki, which currently only has one season (although it does have an upcoming season set for next month!), has an English dub available. While it’s possible that the Crunchyroll-Funimation merger affected the production of anime dubbing, it’s more likely that the announcement of the second season right after the first season of Superstar!! made them hold off on dubbing the series.
Considering the track record of dubbing for the Love Live! series, it’s more than likely that Superstar!! will have a dub, but it’s not entirely confirmed — we’ll keep you updated on that!
