Farming Life in Another World Season 2 Release Date and Countdown
As of April 2023, Farming Life in Another World Season 2 doesn’t have a release date as it is not confirmed yet. However, if a new season is confirmed, it will likely air sometime in late-2025 or early-2026.
This is cause the first season premiered from January 2023 to March 2023 and it typically takes around 1-2 years to produce a new season.
As of now, no official announcements have been made yet, hence the readers need to keep in mind that these are just speculations.
But, keep an eye out for this space as we will update it as soon as something official is announced. We can expect the announcement in the next few months.

Farming Life in Another World Season 2 Renewal Status: Confirmed or Cancelled
As of writing, Studio ZERO-G, the publisher Enterbrain, or any other member of the production committee member has not officially renewed the anime for a second season.
A lot of anime manage to get a new season right after the season finale but unfortunately, Farming Life in Another World wasn’t one of them.

Production Studios consider various financial and commercial metrics before announcing a renewal and it is possible to speculate whether an anime will get a new season or not by carefully evaluating these three factors:
- Availability of source material
So now we will examine these factors to see if Farming Life in Another World with anime will get a sequel or not.
Is there enough source material available for Farming Life in Another World Season 2?
Farming Life in Another World anime is based on the light novel series written by Kinosuke Naito with illustrations drawn by Yasumo.
It first started publication on the user-generated novel publishing website Shōsetsuka ni Narō (Let’s Become Novelist) in December 2016.
It was later acquired by Enterbrain who published the series in physical form with illustrations.
The first volume in the novel series was released on October 30, 2017, and the latest issue came out on December 28, 2022.
A total of ten volumes have been released so far, and the light novel is still ongoing.
The first season of the anime completely adapted two volumes out of ten leaving us behind with more than 8 volumes of content which is more than enough material to create not only one but three anime seasons. So those who are interested in continuing the novels after the anime can start from volume 3 onwards.
Conclusion: Currently, there are 8 volumes of source material available to adapt, which is good news since the series has more than enough material for Studio ZERO-G to start working on a new season right away.
Moreover, the series is still ongoing with a consistent release of new volumes, so that’s a big plus for getting a sequel.
Also, this shows that the production committee considers “Campfire Cooking in Another World” as a long-term investment by adapting only two volumes over 12 episodes and maintaining a perfect pace, much like what “Eminence in Shadow” and “Magical Revolution” did.
Rather than treating it as just a promotional tool for the novel and trying to adapt too much material resulting in an uneven story build-up, lack of character development, and inconsistent pacing, as seen in the “Genius Prince” anime.
This indicates that the production team was already considering renewing the second season during its planning stage. Now, the only thing that stands in its way is its profitability.
If the anime manages to make its money back, it will almost certainly be renewed within the next year or so. Let’s see how the series is performing in terms of profitability.
Light Novel Sales and Profitability
Before we proceed, it’s important to understand that most of the anime we watch today are created primarily to promote and boost the sales of its source material (in this case light novel).
Sales from the light novel and related merchandise are the main source of income for the producers, while revenue from advertising fees, online streaming licensing, and Blu-ray sales are considered secondary
Typically, a 12-episode anime television series costs around $3,000,000 to produce.
Therefore, an anime has to make back this much money through merchandise sales and licensing fees to ensure a new season from the producers.
As of September 2021, Farming Life in Another World had reached a circulation count of 2 million copies across the light novel, manga and digital downloads.
However, do note that this count is from before the anime aired and has not been updated for 18 months now and doesn’t account for the boost it received from the anime adaptation.
Anime adaptations have been known to have a significant impact on the sales and popularity of their source material. This was demonstrated by the success of “How a Realist Hero Rebuilt the Kingdom,” which saw a near-doubling of its sales within six months of its anime premiere and Ao Ashi and Isekai Ojisan saw a similar increment.
Conclusion: typically, a light novel with 500,000 to 1,000,000 copies in circulation is considered successful, so the series is performing remarkably well in that regard.
Moreover, as we mentioned earlier, the above count hasn’t been updated for over eighteen months now during which three new volumes were released and does not include the boost in sales that the series received from the anime adaptation so there is a chance that the count might have crossed 3 million circulation count by now.
Blu-ray/ DVDs and other Merchandise sales
While Blu-rays and DVDs are no longer key players in determining anime success as they used to be back in the 2010s, they are still a great tool to understand a show’s popularity among the general Japanese audience. In general, if an anime’s disc sales are over 3,000, a second season would be promising.
As for Farming Life in Another World, the first Blu-ray/DVD box is set to release on April 19, 2023. We will update this section with the sales numbers as soon as they will be posted on the Oricon website.
Popularity in Japan and the West
The light novel “Farming Life in Another World” was already quite popular among isekai lovers in Japan as evidenced by how It began as a web novel and gained immense popularity, which led to its adaptation into light novels.
With its increasing popularity, the series was greenlit for a manga adaptation by Yasuyuki Tsurugi.
The anime’s debut in Japan was highly anticipated, and it quickly became one of the most-watched shows of the Winter 2023 season. It ranked top on several streaming websites, including the D-Anime Store and AbemaTV and was one of the most-talked shows on the internet.
The debut run of Isekai Nonbiri Nouka anime received a positive reception from fans in the West, with many viewers and critics praising it for being even better than the source material in some aspects.
The series has garnered positive reviews from viewers around the world, earning a solid score of 7.6 on MyAnimeList and ranking at #1647in popularity, with more than 121k members in its MAL group.
It has also received an amazing score of 7.0/10 on IMDb and a 75% approval rating on AniList. This shows that the show’s popularity is very high even though it is a young series.
In conclusion, the series gained a significant following in both Japan and the West and generated a ton of revenue from merchandise sales, indicating that it has a strong and loyal fanbase.
With enough source material and the potential to make even more sales, it is inevitable that Farming Life in Another World Season 2 will be announced soon. It is no longer a question of if it will get a new season, but when it will get a new season.

Final Words !!
In summary, there is a good chance that Farming Life in Another World Season 2 will happen. If that is the case, we should hear some news about it this year. But don’t expect the release date for the second season to be before 2023 since it takes time for a new season to be animated.
