Funimation announced on Tuesday that it will stream The Quintessential Quintuplets 2 (Gotōbun no Hanayome ∬), the series' second anime season, with an English dub. The second season's dub will premiere after the anime debuts in Japan on January 7, and the company will announce the release date in the future.

The new season was originally scheduled to premiere in October but was delayed due to COVID-19.

Kaori (Endro~!, Yuyushiki, How to keep a mummy) is replacing Satoshi Kuwabara to direct the new season. Keiichirō Ōchi is returning from the first season to oversee the series scripts.

Masato Katsumata (Azur Lane assistant animation director) is providing the character designs and serving as chief animation director. Hanae Nakamura and Miki Sakurai are returning to compose the music.

The anime will feature a returning cast.

The anime's first season premiered in January 2019 and aired for 12 episodes. Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired in Japan, and Funimation offered an English dub.

Kodansha Comics is releasing Negi Haruba's original manga digitally and in print, and it describes the story:

One day, a poor high school second-year named Futaro Uesugi comes across a private tutoring gig with good pay. But his pupils are his classmates!! And they're quintuplets!! A-and they're all gorgeous girls, but they're also troublemakers who hate to study and are on the verge of flunking out! And his first task is simply gaining the sisters' trust?! Every day is a party! The curtain is rising on the Nakano quintuplets' quirky romantic comedy with five times the cute!!

The manga launched in Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine in August 2017, and Haruba ended the series in February.
