Toho Animation announced that season 2 of the Jujutsu Kaisen anime will include the Shibuya Incident Arc. The announcement appeared as part of the Toho Animation 10th-anniversary live broadcast and featured the voice actors of Yuji Itadori, Megumi Fushiguro, and Nobara Kugisaki. Jujutsu Kaisen season 2 will release in two back-to-back cours starting in 2023.
Following the release of the Jujutsu Kaisen 0 movie, the second season will feature two major arcs from the original manga series. The Star Plasma Vessel Arc, also known as the Gojo’s Past Arc, will follow Satoru Gojo and his fellow classmates over a decade prior to the events of the first season. The Shibuya Incident Arc will pick up directly after the events of the first season, and feature the main cast as they face off against foes in Shibuya.

A new teaser visual appeared during the event and includes Gojo, Yuji, Megumi, and Nobara on a train. The train, noticeably abandoned, has arrived at Shibuya station. Notably, the new teaser visual is complementary to a previously-released teaser image for the Star Plasma Vessel Arc. Put together, the two teasers create an image of current Satoru Gojo and past Suguru Geto about to shake hands.

Furthermore, Jujutsu Kaisen season 2 will air in two separate cours, similar to Spy x Family‘s first season. In anime, a “cour” typically includes around 14 episodes. The term is often used interchangeably with “season”. However, unlike Spy x Family and the upcoming Bleach: The Thousand-Year Blood War, Toho Animation confirmed that the two cours will air back-to-back. This likely means that there will be little to no waiting time between each cour. For reference, the previous season featured a total of 24 episodes.
Jujutsu Kaisen season 2 will air sometime in 2023.
