Seeing the success of the first season of Blue Lock, every fan was sure that they would hear an announcement regarding a second season soon. However, no one expected it to be this soon, so obviously, the announcement came as a surprise. Not only a new season, but the franchise is also coming with a spin-off movie on Nagi that will be adapted from a spin-off manga series centered on the character. Besides that, the new projects of Blue Lock are already in the works. The release window/date of either has yet to be discovered.
Apart from that, Blue Lock Season 2 will premiere on Crunchyroll and Netflix for International fans, while the spin-off movie will get a theatrical release.
