The Faraway Paladin Season 2 revealed a new visual and trailer earlier today. The anime will premiere in the fall of 2023. Studios OLM and SUNRISE BEYOND are animating the sequel, which was announced in 2021. Shoya Chiba is joining the cast as Will, who is now older.
Children’s Playground Entertainment animated the first season. The anime is based on a fantasy light novel series written by Kanata Yanagino and illustrated by Kususaga Rin. The staff for the second season includes Akira Iwanaga as the director, Tatusya Takahashi on the series composition, and Koji Haneda and Tatsuya Arai as the character designers. Ryuichi Takeda and Keigo Hoashi (both part of MONACA) are composing the music.
Crunchyroll streamed the first season of the anime and describes the plot as:
In the ruined city of the dead far from human civilization lives a single human child named Will. He is raised by three undead: Blood the heroic skeleton warrior, Mary the ladylike mummy priestess, and Gus the crotchety ghost wizard. The three of them teach the boy what they know and pour their love into him. One day, the boy begins to wonder, “Who am I?” Will uncovers the mysteries of the undead hidden in this faraway land. He learns of the love and mercy of good gods, as well as the paranoia and madness of evil gods. And once he learns it all, the boy embarks on the path to becoming a Paladin.
