Yes, there is a sequel for Goblin season 2. The first season of Goblin slayer received lots of mixed reactions from fans and critics.

However, its comeback is yet to be announced.
When will Goblin Slayer Season 2 be released?
After two years of releasing its first episode, fans are still eagerly waiting for season two. Sadly, season two from the studio are no nods, and most fans are sceptical if it will ever make to the screens.
Regardless of the extreme controversy Goblin slayer season, two has encountered for sexually graphic airing scenes; the positive side is that its fan base is enormous. Though there is no news of the show second season airing, there is too much left unattended from the 13 volumes and still ongoing source material. Meaning, the content for the series is in plenty. Our initial expectation was to hear of its release by the end of 2020, but as a result of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, we can only hope that it will be released this year.

Still, it isn’t clear when it will make a comeback. Meanwhile, you can watch the Goblin Crown.
Goblin Slayer Controversies
The first episode was the beginning of the controversy. It featured a young priestess who had united with an aggressive group of people who were on an adventure to rescue another team from goblins. Unfortunately, something gets messed up on their journey; they forget to carry all the necessary weapons. The main controversial point was the graphic assault scenes. According to hundreds of fans, these scenes weren’t so easy to stomach. Besides, the show also aired several violent sexual scenes. The scenes were, however, reduced after the dispute.
Goblin Season 2 Release Challenges
While the series was popular, it’s not quite a guarantee that the producers should spend more money promoting it. This is because of the minimal boosts for the source material and low merchandise sales. The series doesn’t yell money-making. As at now, Goblin Season 2 doesn’t stand a good chance. In Japan, the series isn’t that popular, but there’s hope it will take place due to its popularity in the west.
The only way we could be 100% sure that goblin season 2 is coming back is if there was a significant boost for the English books, and the streaming rights can compensate for the low merchandise amount. A stage event from the series’s publisher will be taking place this month to announce upcoming projects. Goblin Slayer will have a panel, so maybe we will hear something about the series future in an anime format.
