This year is stacked with some top-tier anime titles, and one of its most successful is Spy x Family. The first half of season one has been nothing short than perfection, and fans around the world have fallen for the Forger clan. Of course, this means everyone is eyeing the fall as Spy x Family will return this October. And now, it seems an update about the midseason comeback is on its way!
The update comes from Oricon as the Japanese trade confirmed Spy x Family has a special event planned for fans. On August 28th, the stars of Spy x Family will gather for a livestream event to dish about the show's return. A new poster will also be released for the anime, and of course, fans are hoping an official release date is announced as well.
For those who are not caught up on Spy x Family, the series has earned its reputation as one of this year's best anime. The anime first began as a manga under Tatsuya Endo which is still being published. With WIT Studio and CloverWorks overseeing the anime, the anime tells the story of a family caught in a Cold War. A spy known as Twilight must assume the name Loid Forger to keep the peace between two warring countries, but his quiet mission requires him to make a family. He adopts a daughter and finds a contract marriage easily enough without realizing their true identities. So when a spy, an esper, and an infamous assassin come together to make a family – well, you end up with Spy x Family.
For those wanting to watch season one so far, you can find the anime streaming subbed and dubbed on Crunchyroll. The Spy x Family manga is published by Shueisha, and you can find up-to-date chapters through the Shonen Jump app stateside.
