The official Twitter account for the television anime of Kaiu Shirai and Posuka Demizu's The Promised Neverland manga revealed on Friday that Kiro Akiyama will perform the second season's opening theme song "Identity." The Twitter account also streamed a commercial previewing the song.

Mamoru Kanbe is returning as director from the previous season for CloverWorks. Toshiya Ono is also back to supervise the series scripts, and is joined by original manga writer Shirai for the second season. Kazuaki Shimada is returning as character designer and chief animation director. Takahiro Obata is returning as composer, with Katsunori Shimizu as sound director.

The second season will premiere on Fuji-TV's Noitamina programming block on January 7. Shin'ichirō Kamio joins the cast as the new character Sonju, while Atsumi Tanezaki joins as Mujika. The rest of the cast return from the previous season.

The second season was scheduled to premiere in October, but was delayed to January 2021 due to the effects of the new coronavirus disease (COVID-19) on the production.

The first season of the anime premiered in January 2019. Aniplex of America streamed the anime on Crunchyroll, Hulu, Funimation, and HIDIVE as it aired. Toonami began airing the anime in April 2019.
