When can I watch “The Promised Neverland” Season 2 English Dub?
The Promised Neverland Season 2 Episode 1 English Dub release date on Adult Swim’s Toonami block is from 10th April onwards. The rest of the 10 episodes will air in weekly drops.
Pacific Standard time – 10:30 PM PST Friday, 9th April 2021 (America)
Central Standard time – 12:30 am CST Saturday, 10th April 2021 (America)
Eastern Standard time – 1:30 AM EST Saturday, 10th April 2021 (America)
Unfortunately, Toonami is region locked to the US only. For viewers outside the US, there’s no way to view it legally until it comes to streaming, hopefully later this year.
It is speculated that Funimation licensed Megalobox S2 and not Viz Media for Spring 2021 will get a simuldub before Toonami airs the English dub. The simuldub version besides Toonami for The Promised Neverland S2 will be part of the Aniplex-Funimation partnership. Aniplex of America holds the license to the series and Bang Zoom! Entertainment is the producer of the English dub.
The Promised Neverland Season 1 English dub was aired by Toonami from 13th April to 29th June 2019. It came shortly after the subs ended on March 29, 2019. Following a similar Aniplex pattern, the original Season 2 sub will come to an end on March 26 and Toonami will premiere the dub on April 10.
The Promised Neverland Season 2 reviews have plummeted the ratings. Episode 9 received an abysmal 6.9 rating on IMDb, the lowest so far. Season 2 has been rewritten, has screwed the original manga, and rushed into with cutting out things from the manga. By a lot. At least from what is presented. So if you want to enjoy this or still watch it, I want to suggest watching with low expectations and an open mind. If you are a die-hard fan of Season 1, then refrain from watching The Promised Neverland Season 2. Else, get disappointed with English too.
