Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 concludes with the final episode airing on Dec 28, 2023, where fans witnessed the much-awaited return of Yuta Okkotsu! While the cliffhanger was indeed surprising, Jujutsu Kaisen fans need not fret because Studio MAPPA & TOHO Animation have confirmed the adaptation of the Culling Games arc will take place!

There’s no confirmation whether the Culling Games adaptation will occupy an entire season in itself or if it will be under “Season 2 Cour 2”. Even the release date isn’t out yet. So stay tuned for that!

The Culling Games takes place right after the Shibuya Incident, where Kenjaku organizes this sorta deadly Battle Royale with over 1,000 new sorcerers (dead and alive) in order to make sorcerers and cursed spirits coexist.

About Jujutsu Kaisen:

Jujutsu Kaisen is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Gege Akutami. It has been serialized in Shueisha’s shōnen manga magazine Weekly Shōnen Jump since March 2018, with its chapters collected and published in 25 tankōbon volumes as of December 2023.

Studio MAPPA brought the world of JJK into anime by airing 24 episodes of season 1 from October 2020 to March 2021 and a 2nd season, that premiered in July 2023.

Crunchyroll describes the overall plot of Jujutsu Kaisen as:

Yuji Itadori is a boy with tremendous physical strength, though he lives a completely ordinary high school life. One day, to save a classmate who has been attacked by curses, he eats the finger of Ryomen Sukuna, taking the curse into his own soul. From then on, he shares one body with Ryomen Sukuna.

Guided by the most powerful of sorcerers, Satoru Gojo, Itadori is admitted to Tokyo Jujutsu High School, an organization that fights the curses… and thus begins the heroic tale of a boy who became a curse to exorcise a curse, a life from which he could never turn back.
