2nd season premieres in October

The official website for the television anime of Sui Ishida's Tokyo Ghoul:re manga began streaming a commercial on Thursday for the second season of the anime. The video teases that the anime will tell the conclusion to "the story surrounding Ken Kaneki," and also lists the anime as the "final chapter."

The second season will premiere in October.

The first season premiered on April 3, and aired for 12 episodes. Funimation streamed the series with English subtitles. The company also released the anime's first eight episodes with an English dub alongside those episodes' premieres in Japan, before moving to a two-week delay on the ninth episode.

Odahiro Watanabe (Soul Buster, assistant director on Super Lovers 2, Valkyrie Drive: Mermaid) replaces Shuhei Morita as director for the anime at Pierrot. Pierrot+ is credited for animation production assistance. Chūji Mikasano returns from the first two Tokyo Ghoul anime to provide series composition and write the scripts. Atsuko Nakajima (Ranma ½, You're Under Arrest, Haven't You Heard? I'm Sakamoto) replaces Kazuhiro Miwa as character designer.

Ishida serialized Tokyo Ghoul in Shueisha's Weekly Young Jump from 2011 to 2014, before serializing Tokyo Ghoul:re. The sequel manga ended in July.
