Spy x Family S1 gets 25 episodes, reportedly releasing as two parts


The Spy x Family anime adaptation has just premiered worldwide, with reports that season 1 will have 25 total episodes over two separate parts.

The new anime broadcasting slate is finally upon us and fans are now figuring out which are going to be the biggest and most popular series worldwide.

Arguably the biggest new anime of the Spring slate is the Wit Studio and CloverWorks collaboration project for Spy x Family, a suave and hilarious espionage series.

Now, many are wondering how many episodes Spy x Family season 1 will consist of and how the first season will be released, both domestically in Japan and internationally on streaming services.

Streaming the Spy x Family anime adaptation

The anime adaptation of Tatsuya Endo’s hit manga series is broadcast first before anywhere else on Japanese television networks TV Tokyo, TVO, TV Aichi, TSC, TVh, TVQ, ux, TV Shizuoka, RCC, BS TV Tokyo.

The series is then made available to stream internationally as a simulcast title on Crunchyroll. Whilst Spy x Family is available first to premium subscribers, the show is part of the platform’s new ‘seasonal sampler’ model where all episodes throughout April will also be available for free. This is because Crunchyroll is slowly phasing out their free simulcasting of new anime, so it’s best to start your Spy x Family addiction early whilst it’s free!

Crunchyroll has recently confirmed that Spy x Family will be available to users in locations limited to “North America, Central America, South America, Europe, Africa, Oceania, the Middle East and CIS.”

This week, it was confirmed by the series’ Japanese website that the first season will consist of 25 total episodes.

What’s more: these episodes will reportedly be broadcast over two separate parts across multiple cours (three-month programming block).

Confirmation came in the form of the DVD box set details being revealed, which will ship in six volumes covering 25 individual recordings, i.e., episodes, releasing over the next year:

  • Volume 1: Episodes 1-4, July 20th 2022
