The King’s Avatar Season 2: Release Date and Trailer

Fans have been eagerly awaiting the release of The King’s Avatar Season 2 ever since the first season concluded in 2017. The show, which often goes by the name Quan Zhi Gao Shou, is China’s most successful foray into the lucrative anime industry. 

The King’s Avatar is an original net adaption (ONA) of a series of the same name written by Hu Dielan. The internet giant Tencent is the producer behind the show, and it’s arguably their most successful anime to date. They launched Quan Zhi Gao Shou in 2017 on Bilibili, a streaming service in China, and it ran for 12 episodes.

Donghua refers to any Chinese animation and is their answer to Japanese anime. Their influence in the global anime market is growing, and shows like The King’s Avatar now have an international following. But have all been left waiting for The King’s Avatar Season 2 for a while, so when is the show being released? What will the second season of Quan Zhi Gao Shou be about? We have everything you need to know.

What is The King’s Avatar about?

 Quan Zhi Gao Shou centers around Ye Xiu, who lives in Hangzhou and is a pro esports player. He is widely considered the best player of Glory and was even the captain of his team. However, his unwillingness to play ball with helping to market the team gets him kicked off. The show follows his demise and then hopeful return to the top as he builds a character from scratch while working as a night-shift manager in an internet cafe. 

The King’s Avatar Season 2: Production Details & Renewal

The King’s Avatar has been a hit with critics and fans alike, opening to great reviews from both. That’s why the second season of Quan Zhi Gao Shou is currently in such high demand. After the first installment concluded in 2017, a three-episode sequel was released by Tencent a year later. 

Along with these three episodes, the studio also confirmed that we would be seeing The King’s Avatar Season 2 on our screens in no time. That was back in 2018, and we haven’t heard any word since then on the anime series, and it’s still in production. However, they have released a live-action TV series based around the same concept.

Will Quanzhi Gaoshao Season 2 Ever Come Out?

With the show already being confirmed by Tencent and its cult following multiplying, the anime series’s return is looking very likely. It was speculated last year by inside sources that the show would be released in July 2019. However, nothing came to fruition, and we are still waiting. 

Again Quan Zhi Gao Shou sources let slip that the show had been delayed, and we should see it in early 2020. Now fans are beginning to question whether The King’s Avatar Season 2 will ever actually air. 

However, the sheer popularity of the show makes me remain hopeful. Also, the companies involved have not confirmed that it is canceled either. Anime shows are renowned for being delayed and, Trinity Seven Season 2 is just one example from a laundry list of postponed shows. 

So don’t stress too much, the show is still in production, and we will hopefully be seeing Quan Zhi Gao Shou Season 2 before we know it.

What Will Happen in The King’s Avatar Season 2?

The first season follows the demise of world-class Glory player Ye Xiu and his move from esports sensation to internet cafe worker. The Donghua series has taken inspiration from anime shows like Log Horizon and Sword Art Online with its MMORPG setting.

The 12 episodes of the first installment concluded with a giant cliffhanger that left fans eager for more. The three special episodes in 2018 continued the story and gave fans a small dose of The King’s Avatar. The episodes tackled the All-Stars event and gave us insight into the life of a pro player. By the end of the third episode, Ye Xiu’s new team, Happy, starts to take shape. 

Realistically, The King’s Avatar Season 2 will follow the rise of his new time and the battles they face along the way. Of course, as his team gets better, the challenges they face will grow.

The King’s Avatar Season 2: Official Trailer 

We usually have to disappoint waiting fans because the production companies rarely release an official trailer. However, for Quan Zhi Gao Shou Season 2, this isn’t the case!

Bilibili, the platform the show is streamed on, released the first official trailer for The King’s Avatar Season 2, and it includes Ye Xiu and Team Happy. Enemies of Ye Xiu intend to plant a spy among his ranks as they try to return to professional competitions. But the sturdy leader has a battle strategy for success. 

Fans have commented on the animation style of The King’s Avatar Season 2, as it appears they have taken a completely new approach. Thankfully, the trailer confirms the show will hit our screens in 2020, so get ready!

What are your thoughts on the new animation style? Are you buzzing for the launch of the new season? Check out the trailer below and let us know.

The King’s Avatar Season 2: Release Date 

With Quanzhi Gao Shou Season 2 being delayed for so long, some fans did lose hope of seeing a second season at all. However, the production company is planning to release the series in 2020, which is a major positive for fans. 

Unfortunately, it seems that the outbreak of COVID-19 in 2020 has ground the entertainment industry to a halt. Big blockbuster movies have been delayed along with our favorite shows, so it seems that Quanzhi Gaoshao Season 2 may be affected by the outbreak. We are still holding out and hoping that they can squeeze in the launch date before the end of the year. Insider sources are saying that October or November 2020 is looking the most likely. 

There has been no official update from Bilibili or Tencent, so we’ll take no news as good news and hope that The King’s Avatar Season 2 will still hit our screens before the year is out. We’ll keep you updated on all the latest release news for the show and post the expected arrival date. In the meantime, enjoy some awesome fan art!
