JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Stone Ocean Part 2 will launch on Netflix this fall, with the official release date now confirmed in a new trailer.
If you think back to early December last year, social media platforms around the world were dominated by one series in particular, the iconic JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure. That’s when the hit franchise kicked off its brand new anime season via the Netflix streaming platform to fabulous global reception, Stone Ocean.
However, with only 12 episodes launched by the streaming giant, many fans were quick to binge on the entire “Part 1” of the new season and openly criticize the platform for maintaining the broadcast in “Netflix Jail”. Luckily, the release date for JoJo’s Stone Ocean Part 2 has just been confirmed by Netflix in a brand new trailer – here’s everything fans need to know.

Stone Ocean Part 2 Confirmed at AnimeJapan 2022
The JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean franchise was showcased at the AnimeJapan event in April, where it was revealed that Part 2 of the fan-favorite anime was now in production.
While fans around the world were obviously celebrating the announcement, the majority of the Stone Ocean community was already convinced that the anime would eventually make a comeback.
The first clue that the series would release a second part was actually the number of episodes with which the first part was released in 2021. Each previous season of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure consisted of between 26 and 48 episodes; meaning that Stone Ocean was, at most, only halfway through the typical length of the season for the franchise.
Likewise, there’s a lot of source material from the original Stone Ocean manga arc that needs to be covered by the new anime season. As Anime Geek reports, by the end of Stone Ocean Episode 12, the series had adapted the first 50 chapters from the original storyline.
The good news for fans is that 158 chapters of the Stone Ocean story arc have been released by Shueisha in its original Japanese version. This means that if David Productions maintains a similar schedule, we might not only get a Part 2 for Stone Ocean, but a Part 3 as well!
Finally, we have popularity; something it’s hard to say Stone Ocean misses if you only spend a few minutes browsing social media. As of July 2, the series has received a fantastic reception from fans around the world, with Stone Ocean earning an 8.2/10 on IMDB and an 8.36/10 “Very Good” on MyAnimeList with over 149,000 likes. individual reviews and 344,000 members.
“David’s production never disappoints with JoJo’s anime adaptations and this one is really well done. The show does not fail at all to make you have a good time. If people are wondering if Netflix is going to destroy this one, you don’t have to worry, David’s production is still handling the animation and the big stuff. – User ‘kunal_’ via MAL.
Now that we know that JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean Part 2 is confirmed, when will the series return to Netflix?
