The official Chinese website for the television anime adaptation of Sui Ishida's Tokyo Ghoul horror manga is listing that a second season of the anime will begin in January.
The series premiered on July 3 at midnight (effectively July 4) on Tokyo MX, TV Osaka, TV Aichi, TVQ Kyushu Broadcast, and BS Dlife. Funimation streamed the series in North America, and has also licensed the series for home video release.
Shuhei Morita (Freedom, Kakurenbo), the Oscar-nominated director of the "Possessions" ("Tsukumo") short, directed the first season of the anime at Pierrot. Kazuhiro Miwa (animation director on EUREKA SEVEN AO, Gosick, Heroman) is designed the characters, and playwright Chūji Mikasano (LDK) supervised and wrote the scripts. Noboru Haraguchi (Heroman, Gosick) is the sound director, and Yutaka Yamada (live-action Marumo no Okite, Hunter ~Sono Onna-tachi, Shōkinkasegi~) composed the music.
