‘Spy x Family’ Season 2 will adapt the manga’s Great Cruise Adventure arc. Now that we know there will also be a movie next year, it’s very possible that the series’ release will be pushed back by a few months. It’s very unlikely that the series will be released in the first half of the year, as most fans might have guessed. Assuming things go well and there are no unexpected delays, Spy x Family Season 2 will be released sometime in late 2023.
Spy x Family Season 2 Plot: What will it be about?
In Season 2, the anime will focus on the Great Cruise Adventure Arc, as has now been officially announced. The Forger family will have the unique opportunity to spend a few days on the Princess Lorele, a popular cruise ship that features multiple attractions including a golf course, casino, circus, pool and magic show. Interestingly, the food is prepared by five-star chefs who are specially invited from Berlint to ensure passengers get the best food.
In addition to all of this, the cruise ship offers fireworks for passengers to enjoy from the front deck, as well as a shopping promenade. While Anya is obviously looking forward to having a great time there, Yor gets into big trouble. She was used as a bodyguard by Olka Gretcher, the widow of a Mafiosi, and her son. Constantly battling a group of skilled assassins, Yor must ensure that Loid does not learn that she is the infamous Princess of Thorns.
