Season 2 of the anime will run for two cours consecutively from July 6 and cover Hidden Inventory Arc in the first cour.
In the second cour, it will cover the Shibuya Incident Arc.
TV anime Jujutsu Kaisen is based on the work of Gege Akutami’s manga of the same name.
It started its serialization in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in March 2018. The manga is scheduled to end by the end of this year.
In October 2020, the manga got adapted into TV anime by MAPPA and ran for 24 episodes.
Crunchyroll describes season one 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.
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.
