It's official, Tokyo Mew Mew New is coming back for a second season next year! Although Reiko Yoshida and Miu Ikumi's original manga series had an official anime adaptation several years ago, it was one of the major franchises that came back with a brand new rebooted anime series that showed off the classic to a whole new audience. With the series wrapping up its run as part of the Summer 2022 anime schedule, fans had gone in wondering whether or not this new reboot would have the same kind of extended run that the original anime adaptation was able to have.
With the 12 episode run of Tokyo Mew Mew New coming to an end recently, the final episode of the first season confirmed that Tokyo Mew Mew New will be returning for a second. Releasing next April as part of the Spring 2023 anime schedule (without a concrete release date announced as of yet), Tokyo Mew Mew New celebrated its second season announcement with a special trailer teasing what's next for its group of young heroes. You can check it out below:

They tease the anime as such, "The scientists of the μ(Mew) Project use DNA of endangered species to create a team of heroines imbued with amazing super-human abilities. One of them, Ichigo Momomiya, awakens to discover she is armed with all the skills of a Iriomote cat. Ichigo must band together with other Mew Mew girls to repel an alien incursion, all the while hiding their thrilling double lives from friends and family."
