The co-founder of Wit Studio Tetsuya Nakatake has stated that Spy x Family season 2 and the upcoming movie will release in Fall 2023.

As soon as the credits roll on the season finale of any anime series, the global fanbase immediately begins to ponder whether or not the series could return for another broadcast.

However, there are a few anime series that are so successful that their renewal is publicly announced prior to the release of their respective finales.

Thankfully, this was the case for the highly popular Spy x Family series, which will return with season 2 and a new movie in 2023; with Wit Studio co-founder now indicating that a Fall premiere is being targeted.

Spy x Family season 2 and movie to release Fall 2023

On December 18, it was officially confirmed via the series Japanese website that the Spy x Family anime would return for season 2 and a new theatrical anime movie, both of which are set to release in 2023.

This week, Wit Studio co-founder Tetsuya Nakatake revealed at a recent exhibition event that both the theatrical movie and season 2 of the anime adaptation is targeted to premiere in Fall 2023.

Wit Studios worked alongside CloverWorks on both season 1 part 1 and season 1 part 2 of the Spy x Family anime; which aired between April – June, and October – December 2022 respectively.

“TV Animation Season 2 will be broadcast in 2023 and a theater version will be produced! Season 2 of the TV anime will be broadcast in 2023. In addition, a movie version will be produced in the same year. The movie version will be supervised by Tatsuya Endo, the author of the original story, who will also be in charge of drafting the characters. Please look forward to further news on both the TV anime Season 2 and the movie version.” – Spy x Family season 2 announcement, via official website.

Tatsuya Endo, author of the original manga series, would then share a special message to fans in commemoration of the anime renewal and upcoming ‘Ooting’ to the big screen:

“Thankfully, this year’s anime adaptation has brought a lot of excitement to my work. It was a year that passed so fast, with so many things happening that I don’t even know what to do with myself. I have often seen the Forger family around town and on TV, and although I used to look at it as if it was something else, I am very happy to be able to feel it a little more.” – Tatsuya Endo, via official website.

The mangaka continued, “Once again, I would like to thank the production team, the voice actors, all the people involved in the animation, and all the readers and viewers who support the work.”

“In 2023, there will be a second TV animation season and a theater version, so I hope that the anime will gain even more momentum in the future.” – Tatsuya Endo, via official website.

Where to read up to in the original manga series

The Spy x Family manga made its serialization debut in March 2019 and as of February 2023, 10 complete Tankobon volumes have been published in Japan.

The good news is that nine of those volumes have already been published in English – so where do you need to read up until, as to avoid spoilers for season 2 and the upcoming movie?

Season 1 episode 25 adapted up until volume 7 chapter 38 of the original manga; do not read past this chapter unless you wish to know spoilers for the anime content set to be adapted in 2023.

Physical copies of the Spy x Family manga can be purchased via Amazon, Book Depository, Waterstones, and Bookshop. Digital versions are also available via Google Play, Apple iBooks, Amazon Kindle, and Viz Media.

However, arguably the easiest and cheapest way to catch up with the Spy x Family manga is via Viz Media and Manga Plus simulpub services; where access costs just $2.99 through an active subscription.
