Here, is everything a fan should know about Citrus Season 2.
Is Citrus returning for season 2?
Sadly, Studio Passione has not yet officially renewed Citrus for a season 2.
In spite, the yuri series having a huge fan base, it received low ratings and unfavorable reviews on IMDB and My anime list. Hence, the Studio Passione may be discouraged from renewing the anime series for a second season.
Source material available for Season 2
The season 1 of Citrus ended with completing the fourth volume of the original manga. Hence, there’s a possibility the season 2 will pick up the plot from there.
The original manga series consists of 10 volumes, so we have six more volumes left to explore. Season 1 concluded in October 2018 but the source material is preoccupied with the Japanese yuri.
In November 2019 Mangaka Saburoto also created a spin-off series Citrus Plus and it was a huge hit. Fans are hoping, that the anime adaptation will be returning for a second season as plenty of source material is available.
