The upcoming season will air in October, and it will feature a slightly different production staff. Studio Pierrot is still animating the series, but Odahiro Watanabe (Soul Buster) replaces director Shuhei Morita and Atsuko Nakajima (Sakamoto Desu ga?) replaces cast designer Kazuhiro Miwa.
The anime’s first season is currently airing and will run for 12 episodes. An episode count for the second season hasn’t been confirmed yet.
Tokyo Ghoul:re is a sequel series to Tokyo Ghoul and it began serialization in October 2014. The series takes place two years after the Commission of Counter Ghoul (CCG) agency’s raid on Anteiku. The agency’s systematic eradication of ghouls has changed Tokyo’s atmosphere, but the Aogiri Tree terrorist group is planning to fight back. A half-ghoul, half-human named Haise Sasaki leads the elite Quix Squad for the CCG to combat the new Aogiri Tree threat.
Sui Ishida’s Tokyo Ghoul has been a huge hit ever since its 2011 debut in Weekly Young Jump. The series has a combined 34 million copies in print worldwide, has inspired two anime adaptations, a spin-off manga, four video games, and one live-action movie.
