The anime series Rent-A-Girlfriend ended in September 2021, but it has already been reported that season 2 will premiere in Summer 2022!
We’re nearing the end of the Winter 2022 anime airing schedule, but fans are eagerly anticipating what the rest of the year has in store.
The anime community is particularly looking forward to the comeback of several fan favorites, including Classroom of the Elite, Love Live Superstar, and Rent-A-Girlfriend.
Fans of the latter series, Rent-A-Girlfriend, have known for a while that season 2 would be released this year, but we can now provide you with the most up-to-date information on its worldwide release.
Rent-a-girlfriend Did Not Wait Long to Announce Season 2
The news that Rent-A-Girlfriend would return for a second season was released mere minutes after the first season’s finale aired on Crunchyroll in September 2020.
While the news of renewal was good, few of us were surprised to learn that Kazuya and Chizuru would be getting a second date.
The availability of source material and the overall success of an anime are usually the deciding factors in whether or not it will be produced again.
Crunchyroll does not provide official viewership numbers for anime titles that are simulcast. However, Rent-A-Girlfriend season 1 was hugely popular around the world, and it currently has a 7.5/10 on IMDB, 4.4/5 on Crunchyroll, and 7.26/10 on MyAnimeList, with over 467,000 people watching it!
Then there’s the fact that the original Rent-A-Girlfriend manga series is still running strong, implying that there’s still enough source material to adapt for the anime adaptation. Season 1 of the anime ended at volume 6, chapter 49 of the original series, according to Anime Geek.

The good news for fans is that 25 volumes with 227 chapters have been published in Japan as of March 2022, with 11 of them also available in English. This means that not only will a second anime season be televised, but there will be enough source material for up to four seasons!
Now we’ve arrived at the most crucial component of Rent-A-return: Girlfriend’s when season 2 will be available online.
The Release Date for Rent-a-girlfriend Season 2 Has Been Announced
Following the conclusion of season 1 in September 2020, the popular anime series was renewed for a second season in 2022, according to the renewal announcement.
Then, on January 14th, 2022, the series’ Japanese website officially stated that Rent-A-Girlfriend season 2 would premiere in July 2022.
Season 2 Episode 1 is planned to broadcast on Saturday, July 2nd, or Monday, July 9th, by the programming block from season 1.
