There is no doubt Lookism is one of the best anime of 2022, based on a very popular webtoon created by Taejun Pak. Since watching the first season, fans have been eagerly waiting for Lookism season 2 to continue the story. The first season consists of just eight episodes that were released on December 8, 2022.
Due to its unique plot, handsome characters, and stunning action sequences, it got enormous love and attention from fans. As the streaming platform for series, Netflix also brought a huge audience to it and made it so popular. It’s been 11 months since the first season was released, but the officials are still taking a long time to release the second season.
As a result, anime fans keep wondering about Lookism season 2 and are eager to know when it’s coming. Moreover, they also don’t understand why the official is taking so much time if they are waiting for enough source material for season 2. So, let’s get straight to this informative news and find out everything we know so far about Lookism season 2, such as its release date, cast, staff, and what we will get to see in it.
Lookism Season 2 Expected Release Date
Unfortunately, Taejun Pak, the creator of Lookism, and Studio Mir have not said anything about the release of Lookism season 2. But that does not mean it’s not coming; it’s just taking time for animation and other production work.
It’s only been 11 months since the first season ended, and it is very difficult to release a second season within that period of time, especially when the animation and character design of the series are so top-notch. On the other hand, its webtoon counterpart has more than enough material left to get adapted, which can be used not just to produce a second season but to make almost 8 more seasons.
So, it is very obvious that the officials are not waiting for any material; they are just busy with their production stuff. As we also know, Netflix produced this series, so they also don’t have any budget issues. Adding all these points together, we can conclude that the Lookism season might be released sometime in 2024.
Moreover, it is also very possible that the second season will contain more episodes than the first season. However, these are just predictions, and we have to wait for their official announcement. As soon as we get any further information regarding its confirmed release date, we will immediately share it with you.
Cast and Staff of Lookism Season 2
The cast for Lookism season 2 will possibly have the same members who worked on the previous season.

The series composition might be done by Isao Murayama and the music might be composed by Kyung-Hoon Han.
On the other hand, the officials definitely made some changes in their animation department and chose some new talents. Last but not least, Lookism season 2 will possibly be produced by Studio Mir, the same Korean animation studio that produced the first season.
