Will There be Young Jack Black Season 2?

There are many reasons why we think that Tezuka Production is holding off on Young Black Jack, and it will return for Season 2. The production studio owns the original Black Jack anime franchise, and hence there is not much of a hassle to take references of original anime or make a remake like the Dororo series.

Secondly, season 1 didn’t cover all the source material. It only used 3 volumes and the makers can still use the content from the remaining 13 volumes.  Most importantly, the series reception was quite good. It is rated  7.23 on MAL and is ranked #2784 overall & #1964 on the popularity poll. So, fans could be at ease because the chances are good that there will be Young Black Jack Season 2.


The story of Young Black Jack takes place in the 1960s and follows young Kuroo Hazama, who has a peculiar appearance, a body ridiculed in scars, and unusual black and white hair. He strives to become a doctor and wants to achieve the impossible. He is blessed with brilliance in surgery and got acknowledged by others.

Hazama’s path to becoming a surgeon gets tougher and tougher when he stumbles upon situations. He manages to cure people every time and always lives up to his name, The BlackJack.

Release Date

Tezuka production has always surprised the fans with its updates and announcements from time to time. It’s a studio that has known the potential of the old series and made quite a fortune from it. So, Tezuka production might not let go of a series like Young Black Jack.

They are likely waiting for the right time to release the sequel. The manga has ended in 2019, and now the fans are restless to see its story hitting the screens. Hence, there is a possibility that Young Black Jack Season 2 might release in late 2022 or in mid-2023.
