The Jump Festa '23 event on Sunday announced that the SPY×FAMILY anime will get a second season and a theatrical film in 2023. The film will be an all-new work with an original story. Original manga creator Tatsuya Endō is credited with the original work and original character designs for the film, and will also supervise the film. Endō drew an image to commemorate the film announcement.

The first season's first half premiered on April 9. Crunchyroll streamed the first half as it aired, and it is also streaming an English dub. The anime's second half premiered in Japan on October 1, and Crunchyroll is streaming the series as it airs.

Kazuhiro Furuhashi (Mobile Suit Gundam UC, Rurouni Kenshin, Getbackers, 2019 Dororo) is directing the anime at Wit Studio and CloverWorks. Kazuaki Shimada (The Promised Neverland) is designing the characters, and [K]NoW_NAME (Fairy gone, Dorohedoro, Sakura Quest) is the music producer.

Viz Media is publishing Tatsuya Endō's original manga in English, and it describes the story:

Master spy Twilight is the best at what he does when it comes to going undercover on dangerous missions in the name of a better world. But when he receives the ultimate impossible assignment—get married and have a kid—he may finally be in over his head!

Not one to depend on others, Twilight has his work cut out for him procuring both a wife and a child for his mission to infiltrate an elite private school. What he doesn't know is that the wife he's chosen is an assassin and the child he's adopted is a telepath!

Shueisha is simulpublishing the manga in English on its MANGA Plus service. Viz Media added the manga to its app as part of its Shonen Jump subscription in September 2019. The company is also publishing the manga in print.

The manga is inspiring a stage musical adaptation in March-May 2023.
