Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry or more popularly known as Chivalry of a Failed Knight is an isekai anime series which grasped the attention of everyone with an impeccable storyline and compelling theme when it was released in Fall 2015. In this article, you will know all the information we have about the Chivalry of a Failed Knight Season 2, also known as Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry Season 2.
This anime series is based on a light novel series penned by Riku Misora, and Won illustrated it. After seeing the light novel series’s popularity studio Silver Link and Nexus studio (Darwin’s Game) decided to adapt it into an anime adaption and made the first season of Chivalry of a Failed Knight available from October 3, 2015, to December 19, 2015.
The first season ended with a bang, the final fight between Ikki and Tondou liver up to its hype, and the anime received a great response from the fans.
Despite being a hit, there has been no news regarding a sequel. Throughout the article, we will talk about the prospects of a new season and other interesting aspects.
Chivalry of a Failed Knight Season 2 Release Date
As discussed above, the first season of Chivalry of a Failed Knight released in 2015, and since then, no official announcements or signals have been made for the release of Chivalry of a Failed Knight. Fans are waiting wholeheartedly for welcoming the second season.
However, there is one thing that points towards the happening of a second season for real. The official websites of Silver Link and Nexus revealed that a ‘Special’ is coming soon. If everything goes right, we might see the OVA by early 2022.
Will There Be A Second Season?
IMDB gave 7.4 stars out of 10 to Chivalry of a Failed Knight Season 1, and MyAnimeList gave 7.54 stars out of 10. Though Chivalry of a Failed Knight could not make much profit, the first installment made many fans. Fans across the globe are looking forward to the release of the second installment of it. The popularity of this anime is seen from the ratings that it received.
The conclusion to the question of if there will be Chivalry of a Failed Knight Season 2 is that another season is most likely not getting announced. I would say it’s pretty close to 0% that this series will get another season in this year.
So if you love this series, you should read the light novels to learn how it continues after the first season. Volume 4 in English just got released by SolPress recently, so you can continue where the anime ended. This article will get updated again next year, and we will see if something perhaps changed.

The second thing we need to figure out is how many books got used for the anime’s first season. Sometimes anime does catch up with the source material like in the case of OPM and why One Punch Man Season 3 will take a while to get announced.
