Love of Kill Season 2 Release Date
The Platinum Vision has not yet renewed Love of Kill for season 2. Although, none of the makers or writers of the show has made any official comment regarding the continuity of the series. Season 1 has a few loose ends that need to be concluded. And the finale barely provided the conclusion of the entire series.
Fortunately, the audience liked the show very much which gives a strong possibility for the release of season 2 of Love of Kill. But since season 1 covered seven out of eleven volumes of Fe’s manga anime series, this means this series is going to be a multi-year release. So, even if Love of Kill is renewed for season 2, it is going to be released in somewhere mid-2024.
Love of Kill Season 2 Expected Plot
Season 2 of Love of Kill might comprise the past and childhood of both Chateau Dankworth as well as Ryang-ha. With that, the series might reveal the reasons for Son not wanting any of the monetary benefits from Chateau upon his hiring. Also, it is expected that Donny’s connection with Chateau’s father and grandfather is also revealed. The viewers might have to wait for a long time for the second season.
