A stage presentation at the Jump Festa '21 event on Sunday revealed the second promotional video for the second anime season based on Kaiu Shirai and Posuka Demizu's The Promised Neverland manga.

Kazuaki Shimada is returning as character designer and chief animation director. Takahiro Obata is returning as composer, with Katsunori Shimizu as sound director. Kiro Akiyama will perform the second season's opening theme song "Identity." Myuk will perform the second season's ending theme song "Mahō" (Magic). Eve (Jujutsu Kaisen opening) contributed to the music in the song.

The second season will premiere on Fuji TV's Noitamina programming block on January 7. Funimation will stream the series as it airs. 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.
