That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime was one of the most popular Isekai series to release in quite some time as it reshaped most of the opinions on the subgenre by putting a new spin on it. Rather than focus solely on its overpowered protagonist much like the rest of the Isekai anime series, much of the progression in the series was displayed through how big the rest of the village was getting around him. Rimuru the Slime was such a huge hit, in fact, that a second season of the anime was confirmed to be in the works shortly after the first ended.
That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime confirmed that Season 2 of the anime would be premiering later this year as part of the Fall 2020 anime season, and while we don't know too much about what to expect from this new season we recently got a fresh sneak peek at how it's coming along thanks to Crunchyroll!
During Crunchyroll's recent Anime Awards celebration, one of the major announcements was that That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime's second season has been announced for a release alongside its debut in Japan. Not only that, Crunchyroll shared a promo featuring some of the staff behind the new season.
