The official website for the anime of the Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku o! (KonoSuba – God’s blessing on this wonderful world!!) light novel series began streaming a promotional video for the second season. The video confirms that the new season will premiere on January 11.

The website also announced that Machico is performing the new season's opening theme song after doing the same for the first season. Similarly, Sora Amamiya, Rie Takahashi, and Ai Kayano are performing the ending theme song again as their characters Aqua, Megumin, and Darkness, respectively.

The new season is titled Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku o! 2 (KonoSuba – God’s blessing on this wonderful world!! 2), and the website posted a teaser visual:

Natsume Akatsuki's light novel series centers around Kazuma Satō, a hikikomori (shut-in) die-hard fan of games, anime, and manga. A traffic accident brings his disappointingly brief life to an end … or it should have, but he wakes up and sees a beautiful girl who introduces herself as a goddess. "Hey, I have some good news — would you like to go to an alternate world? You may only bring one thing you like with you."

He responds, "…So, I'll bring you." With that, he is transported to another world and his great adventure subjugating the demon king begins … but first the hard work of finding food, clothing, and shelter begins. Kazuma wants to live in peace, but the goddess raises one problem after another, and then the demon king's army has its eyes set on him.

The first television anime series premiered on January 13, and its 10th and final episode aired in March. Crunchyroll streamed the anime as it aired in Japan.

The television anime's first Blu-ray Disc and DVD volume shipped on March 25 with an original PC game. An original video anime on Blu-ray Disc shipped with the limited edition of the ninth volume of the original light novels in June.
