Beastars Season 2: Expected Plot
The story is based on a manga series, so there is some clue on what Season 2 will be about. For those who haven’t read the manga, you can follow up with the chapters 48-98 on which the story is likely to be based.
Tem is murdered in the first season; the next season will take the direction from there – finding out who the murderer is. We have a hint that the killer is a member of the school’s drama club. A post-credits scene showed the person coming out of the bathroom and later running into Legoshi who told him that everybody was waiting for him. (Legoshi works as a stagehand in the drama club)
The season can also explore the possibility that the lions did not kill Louis, after all. We need to wait until the new season to find out more.
Beastars: the Storyline
Cherryton Academy is a school for carnivorous and herbivorous students. Legoshi is a gray wolf, quiet and shy, who shares a room with other carnivorous students. He is a member of the drama club, which is headed by Louis, who is a red deer. On one eventless night, Tem the alpaca is killed which causes tension between the herbivorous and carnivorous students.
Haru, a small rabbit, has had a crush on Louis for a long time. Legoshi starts to build emotions for her. They spend a night together in a love hotel when Legoshi almost eats her. The following day, they leave for school together.
Beastars Season 2: Trailer
We don’t have a trailer yet. Also, there has been no communication on Netflix’s end. So, expect it to drop in 2021 before the actual release of the season.
You can watch all the episodes in English on Netflix.
