That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime is coming back for a second season next year, and the series has dropped a new poster for the upcoming episodes. The second season of That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime was initially scheduled to release this year as part of the Fall 2020 anime season, but was unfortunately delayed until 2021 due to the impact of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. With the new release date for the second season now fast approaching, the series is showing off more of these new episodes than ever.
Now officially scheduled for a release on January 12th next year in Japan, That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime shared a new key visual for the second season teasing many of the familiar and new faces Rimuru Tempest and the rest of his region will come across in the new season. Crunchyroll shared a full look at the visual, and you can check it out below:

Crunchyroll previously confirmed that they will be streaming That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime's second season alongside its release in Japan for fans in the United States, Central America, South America, Europe, Africa, Oceania, and the Middle East. Funimation also previously confirmed they will be providing a SimulDub release for the season sometime after that initial premiere at a later unconfirmed date.
When the series returns for its second season later this year it will be split up into two separate cours. When the first wraps in March, the series will be taking a break during the Spring 2021 anime months before returning for the second half of the second season in July for the Summer 2021 anime wave.
