The sequel will premiere in the "Animazing!!!" block on ABC TV, TV Asahi, and their affiliate channels on January 11, 2025 at 26:00 (effectively, January 12 at 2:00 a.m.). The original announcement for the Maho Girls Precure! sequel had slated the anime to air in 2024. The sequel's website has the tagline, "The two futures are now connected with the magic words 'Cure Up RaPaPa!'"

The Mahō Tsukai Precure!!: MIRAI DAYS sequel is one of two 20th anniversary projects that Toei Animation announced for the Precure franchise in March 2023. Toei Animation labels both projects as being aimed at fans who grew up on the original anime, along with those who are watching the franchise's current entries. The other project was last fall's Power of Hope: Precure Full Bloom television anime.

Maho Girls Precure! aired from 2016 to 2017. The series featured themes of magic and witches, with Precures calling upon powers of legendary witches, instead of legendary warriors.

The franchise's 21st and latest main entry, Wonderful Precure!, premiered on February 5.
