When Is Season 2 Of The Faraway Paladin Coming Out?

To find outwhen The Faraway Paladin season 2 is coming out, we need to look at two things: if there is the source material for the next season available and the success of the first season.

First, let’s talk about source material. It refers to the original content the anime is based on, such as a manga or light novel series. If there is enough material available, it’s more likely that the show will get a new season fast.

The second factor is the financial success of the first season. If the first season was popular and made a lot of money, it’s more likely that the production company will want the second season out as fast as possible.

So, by looking at these two factors, we can get agood idea of The Faraway Paladin season 2 release dateand whether a season 3 will follow.

Now let’s quickly look at both.

The Faraway Paladin: Season 2 Light Novel And Manga

The source material for The Faraway Paladin anime is a light novel series written byKanata Yanagino. As of September 2017,there have been five volumes released. There is a manga adaptation with ten books as well.

Unfortunately, the light novel has been on hiatus since then.

There is currently no news of when volume 5 will be released. However, the author has stated that he plans to continue the web novel and release volume 5. So the Faraway Paladin light novel is ongoing, and the ending is still far off.

VolumeRelease DateCovered in Anime
Volume 1March 25, 2016Season 1
Volume 2July 25, 2016Season 1
Volume 3December 25, 2016Season 2
Volume 3,5December 25, 2016Season 2
Volume 4September 25, 2017Season 2

The first season covered volumes 1 and 2 of the light novel. The second season will likely cover volumes 3, 3.5, and 4. So there is currently no material available for a potential third season after the second one.

The second season doesn’t need to wait for new volumes to be released, so The Faraway Paladin Season 2 should come out soon. However, they may be waiting for the release of volume 5.

The Faraway Paladin: An Analysis of Profit and Sales

The Faraway Paladin Blu-ray had low sales, with each volume only selling around 300 to 500 copies. It also did not rank in the top 20 on Oricon. In general, Blu-ray sales below 1,000 are considered poor, even in 2023.

While Blu-ray sales are not as important as they used to be due to the popularity of streaming services, they can still help an anime secure additional seasons if the sales are strong.

The last light novel volume of The Faraway Paladin, published in 2017, volume 4, had poor sales, with less than 5,000 copies sold. This is a low number, but it came out before the anime. We need to wait for volume 5 to see if there was any boost.

The Faraway Paladin Sales and Profit
Blu-ray Sales300-500 copies per volume
Light Novel SalesLess than 5,000 copies
Manga SalesLess than 20,000 copies
Merchandise Numbers0 at time of writing, 20 one year later
Figures NumbersNone

The latest manga volume of The Faraway Paladin did not perform well either. It didn’t rank on Oricon even once. It sold fewer than 20,000 copies. While there is no official information on the number of copies in print, it’s likely around 300,000.

Very little merchandise is available for The Faraway Paladin, with only 20 pieces and no figurines. That is super disappointing. Such low numbers are rare.

The low sales numbers forThe Faraway Paladin suggest that this anime adaptation was not profitable. It is likely that the second season was planned from the start, as it is unlikely that it would have been green-lit otherwise.

The Faraway Paladin Season 2 Release Date

As of January 2023, The Faraway Paladin Season 2 doesn’t have a release date, even if it is confirmed. However, the release date for the second season of The Faraway Paladin is likely to be in 2023.

The second season is not coming out anytime soon, likely in the second half of 2023.

If The Faraway Paladin season 2 release date was anytime soon, we should already have a trailer. Trailers are released 3 to 9 months before a new season of anime premiers.

Also,Saihate No Paladin season 2 Episode 1 release dateshould have been in 2022, but I believe it’s coming out so late because of the state of China.

The studio behind this series, Children’s Playground Entertainment, is outsourcing a lot to China.

LikelyOverlap, the publisher, even regrets announcing the second season. I don’t think it won’t come out, but even that is an option. So I wouldn’t say 100% that The Faraway Paladin will have a season 2.

In the next few months, we should find out more about the release date of the second season of The Faraway Paladin. I’ll update this post if there is new information on the official Twitter account.

Also, don’t expect a third season of The Faraway Paladin since it would take a miracle. There is no source material for it, and there is no reason to produce it.

Hopefully, this article was helpful. Check out the release dates for sequels like Demon Slayer Season 3, Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2, and even Overlord Season 5.
