Spy x Family has quickly become one of the most popular anime of the spring 2022 season, and its first outing will continue this fall. That’s right, Spy x Family Season 1 Part 2 received a release date window and trailer. And it looks like the series will ramp up the stakes for the Forgers heading into the next batch of episodes.

‘Spy x Family’ Season 1 returns with part 2 this October

Spy x Family has proven a highlight of Crunchyroll’s spring 2022 anime season, but its first cour has officially come to a close. Fortunately, those already missing the Forger family have more adventures to look forward to. The first season returns with its second cour this fall.

After part 1’s finale aired, Spy x Family announced on Twitter that season 1 part 2 will have an October 2022 release date. It didn’t offer a specific day and time, but fans can expect more details as the fall season grows nearer.

The anime joins an ever-growing list of anticipated releases arriving this fall, My Hero Academia and Bleach among them. As for what the future holds for the Forgers, we can look to part 2’s trailer for ideas.

The trailer for part 2 promises higher stakes for the Forger family

In addition to revealing a release date window for Spy x Family Season 1 Part 2, the anime’s Twitter shared a first look at the second cour.

Things look intense for the Forgers, with Twilight and his agency attempting to prevent a terrorist attack. That means the tensions between the East and West are growing more serious, and Operation Strix may need to move faster. A couple of action shots promise a heavier emphasis on Twilight’s espionage — and we certainly aren’t complaining about that!

Yor can also be seen defending Anya from a “perverted kidnapper,” but the trailer doesn’t delve too deeply into this storyline. We’ll have to wait and see if it’s a one-off situation or related to the show’s over-arching plot. Either way, expect to see Yor’s assassin skills at work.

How many episodes are in ‘Spy x Family’ Season 1?

With Spy x Family Season 1 consisting of part 1 and part 2, how many episodes can fans expect in total? The DVD and Blu-ray details on the anime’s official website suggest season 1 will comprise 25 episodes. With the first cour ending on episode 12, that places the second at 13 episodes.

As such, fans have plenty of adventures to look forward to with the Forgers. And assuming Tatsuya Endo’s manga keeps going, the anime could even get a second season. With its growing popularity, that outcome seems likely.

Season 1 returns in October 2022.
