That's a relief. A new 12-episode season should be enough to cover not only the manga's last chapters, but also some that were skipped by the first two seasons, and maybe even the sequel chapters that have been running in Jump Giga.

Ooh, nice. Saiki K. is one of those rare adaptations I enjoy more than the original. I’d love to see more.

It got snagged by Netflix, so you'll be waiting just a little longer.

Netflix Philippines will stream the second season starting on June 27th. Dunno the exact time, so I can't confirm if it has all episodes.

Funny, great show. One of the few I don't mind following weekly since its so episodic. I watched S1 on CR and fansubs for S2. Really glad to hear it's continuing.

It's strange though, I thought Funimation and/or Crunchyroll would've gotten S2 since they got S1 and it's a WSJ title and TV Tokyo production.

If only this possible third season wouldn't get picked up by Netflix... I really hope Funi will be able to release season two on Blu-ray eventually.

Speaking of Saiki S2 on Netflix, they only posted the first 12 episodes.

They will most likely release the 13-24eps at the end of the next season and labeled the second half as third season ( as they did for Kuromukuro for example ), they rarely release more than 1 cour at once if the serie is recent .

I imagine Funimation will still acquire the home video rights. It would be odd if someone else does. The Seven Deadly Sins was a Netflix stream that was also released by Funimation. I wonder if they're still using the same English dub VAs

Wow, so Netflix didn’t even care enough to dub the second season. It’s a real shame the Japanese studios caved in and let Netflix take the show from Funimation.
