The Detective Is Already Dead Season 1 Recap
Kimihiko Kimizuka has always been a troublemaker since he was a kid. According to him, he was born with a syndrome that naturally draws him to dangerous circumstances, such as being forced to join a flash mob while out for a stroll, stumbling across an underworld drug trade, and being at crime scenes frequently enough to be considered a suspect.
He was kidnapped and forced to carry a bag onto an international trip one day in his third year of junior high, and it was on that journey that he encountered Siesta, a lady who claims to be a “famous investigator.” Kimihiko was coerced into being her sidekick, and he assisted her in preventing the plane from being hijacked, but not before learning about underworld groups.
After being harassed, Kimihiko accepts to be Siesta’s sidekick, and the two collaborated for three years, investigating and solving an endless amount of cases. Kimihiko is now in his final year of high school and is once again confronted by the ghosts of his past as he attempts to solve fresh cases that have fallen into his lap. The idea that he is termed a detective bothers him greatly; after all, the detective is already dead.
The Detective Is Already Dead Season 2 Story
The team has merely declared that the show has been renewed. However, while no official narrative for Season 2 has been announced, there is a good probability that it will pick up right where Season 1 left off because Season 1 ended on a cliffhanger and there are enough materials to make Season 2 with. Season 2 could see Siesta and Nagisa delving further into their intriguing shared story. However, until the makers confirm it, these are merely rumors, and we’ll have to wait for additional information about the official plot for the next installment.
The Detective Is Already Dead Season 2 Characters
Season 2 has been formally announced by the producers, although no characters list for the forthcoming series has been published as of yet. However, there are a lot of chances that most of the characters from season one will return for the next season, and that more new faces will join the ensemble, but these are just guesses until the producers announce otherwise. Nagai Arata as Kimizuka Kimihiko, Maria Naganawa as Alicia, and Takehito Koyasu as chameleon are the main character in this series.
Where To Watch The Detective Is Already Dead Season 2 Online?
The Detective is Already Dead’s first season was announced in January 2021 and broadcast in July 2022, but it’s safe to infer that filming had already begun a few months before that.
Unfortunately, neither the author nor the distribution partners have provided a projected publication date for the next volumes. In Japan, new volumes are released every five months on average, thus there should be enough source material to complete a second season by March 2022. If the second season of The Detective is Already Dead follows the same production schedule as the first, and given the rate at which new light novel volumes are released, the anime will most likely premiere in October 2022 on the fall broadcasting schedule. You can find the whole series on Netflix.
