Is there any chance we’ll get to see more of From Me to You: Kimi ni Todoke on Netflix? Continue reading to find out more.
The first season of this much-anticipated live-action television series, which is a joint production by TV Tokyo and Netflix, premiered last month, with all 12 episodes debuting on Netflix. Since then, weeks have passed by, and the viewers were quick to binge-watch the series as soon as possible.
The show is based on Karuho Shiina’s hit comic, published in “Bessatsu Margaret” (Shueisha) from 2006 to 2017, and has already inspired an anime series, a live-action film, and games. So, it’s not surprising at all why the viewers want clarification about the potential second season or if it is over for good.
As a result, it is obvious why so many inquiries about an early series renewal are starting to pop up all over social media platforms. Therefore, if you have the same question, then you have come to the right place! We have compiled a quick summary of everything you need to know about the current status of this series.
Here’s everything we know so far about From Me to You Season 2.
From Me to You Season 2: Is it renewed or canceled?
As of this writing, we can assure the viewers that Netflix has not announced the second season. It has been a few days since all the episodes of the first season premiered on the streaming platform, so it is unreasonable to ask for any updates about a potential second-season renewal. It typically takes a month or so for Netflix to evaluate the streaming numbers before we hear from them about a show’s fate.
On the other hand, we don’t want to break your heart, but we’re going to be very honest with you as it seems like the second season of From Me to You is unlikely to happen as the first season has pretty much told a complete story, which is directed by Takehiko Shinjō and Takeo Kikuchi. As all the crucial plotlines have been covered in the first season, there isn’t much to be explored from the source material.
We would also like to highlight that either the manga’s original creator, Karuho Shiina, or screenwriter Hayato Miyamoto would have to produce fresh, original material for any additional seasons. So, it seems far-fetched to guess the plotlines of the second season if the renewal ever happens! Until then, we’ll keep the renewal status pending until Netflix confirms it in the near future.
In the meantime, we suggest the readers stream the first season of “From Me to You: Kimi ni Todoke,” which is a joint production from TV Tokyo and Netflix and is based on one of manga artist Karuho Shiina’s most well-known works, which was serialized in Bessatsu Margaret (published by Shueisha) from 2006 to 2017 and won the Best Shojo Manga award at the 32nd Annual Kodansha Manga Award.
The series explores how to put off by her gloomy demeanor, Sawako has a hard time fitting in—but when an outgoing classmate approaches her, life takes a turn for the better. First-year high school student Sawako Kuronuma finds it hard to fit in with her classmates and is mockingly nicknamed “Sadako” because of her long black hair and pale skin.
As she lives her lonely school life, she meets a boy who talks to her and doesn’t care about the rumors. His name is Shota Kazehaya, and he is the most popular student in his class, loved by everyone for his cheerful personality. By talking with Kazehaya, Sawako slowly begins to open up to her other classmates. As she lives the high school life she always dreamed of, her feelings toward Kazehaya begin to change.
