It's good for the dub that season 2 has a lot of new characters and a fair few that won't be returning from season 1, meaning they won't have to bring a huge amount of people back and can easily cast a large number of people from their own talent pool for new characters(and Josh Grelle being Funimation made that part easy as well).

That's cool they brought back the Sentai VA's and the new VA's seem like great fits for their characters (Lotta goes from Chitoge to Hori).

Is it safe to assume that Netflix will bring back the VA's from their own dub when they upload the dub of season 2?

I went onto Netflix to check out a few episodes of the dub. I wasn't impressed by Askeladd, the most important character to nail acting-wise. Hopefully the dub of season 2 will be better.

I prefer the Netflix dub but season 2 so far is mostly new characters so probably not that jarring for me to watch with a different group of actors.

That's one of the main reasons why I prefer the other dub, David Wald is really good as Aseladd, probably his best ever performance. spoiler[Though Netflix won't have that issue in season 2.]

I stuck with the sub and didn't watch either dub outside of some clips here and there, but it seems like the biggest negative against the Sentai dub as a whole was the sound mixing compared to Netflix. Or at least that was the common thread I noticed beyond some people preferring certain performances over others (i.e. I've seen lots of praise for David Wald's Askeladd from Sentai's dub, Laura Stahl as young Thorfinn in Netflix's, etc...) So hopefully that won't be too much of an issue given that S2 is being recorded in a different studio by a different team?

I had no idea there were two dubs until now. That said, I must've watched the Netflix one because I think Kirk Thornton's Askeladd is excellent and kind of synonymous with the character for me. Naoya Uchida sounds older and David Wald sounds younger, but all three really do the best they can.
