Production company Avex Pictures announced a sequel for the Zombieland Saga anime series on Saturday. The sequel, titled Zombieland Saga: Revenge, was announced at the franchise's Zombieland Live: Franchouchou Minna de Orabou! in Saga event in Karatsu City, Saga Prefecture.

The event also announced that the series' best album, Zombieland Saga Franchouchou The Best, will be released on November 27. The album will contain the anime theme and insert songs, the in-play songs previously bundled with the three Blu-ray volumes, two new songs by the idol unit Franchouchou, and an animation music video of one of the two new songs.

Synopsis
Sakura Minamoto dreams of becoming an idol. Unfortunately, reality hits her like a truck, and she dies in a sudden traffic accident. Ten years later, she wakes up in Saga Prefecture, only to find herself a zombie with no memory of her past. While still coming to terms with her demise, she meets a man named Koutarou Tatsumi, who explains that he has resurrected her and six other zombie girls from different eras for the purpose of economically revitalizing Saga by means of an idol group. Assuming the role of an abrasive manager, Koutarou begins scheduling events; the girls go along with it, eventually deciding to name their idol group Franchouchou.

An absurdly comedic take on the idol genre, Zombieland Saga tells the story of Franchouchou's heartwarming struggle to save Saga Prefecture while hiding their zombie identities and rediscovering their past lives. [Written by MAL Rewrite]

The 12-episode anime series, jointly produced by animation studio MAPPA, Avex Pictures, and mobile game developer Cygames, premiered in Fall 2018. Crunchyroll simulcast the anime with subtitles, while Funimation streamed an English dub.

Megumu Soramichi (Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry) launched a manga adaptation on Cygames' Cycomi website last October. Kodansha published the first volume on February 22.

EDIT:

i just read the wiki page of Cygames and they also own The Idol Master franchise so ye its not out of character for them as a game company to have another idol property like this

Even though I didn't like the show itself much, I desperately need more Tatsumi. This is great news.

Nice, the ending of the first made that pretty obvious, but just the other day I randomly thought how we didn't have anything concrete yet.

Noticed that too, but it was quite vague in showing it.

Regardless, it was expected soon.

I rated it 9 because I enjoyed it a lot back then, but tbh I already forgot what this show was and I'm going to rewatch it sometime later.

That show was way better than expected, really surprising. Especially because of Hououin Kyouma 2.0

Will watch.

I'm definitely happy to hear this, but yikes, that promotional art... reminds me that watching this show means putting up with Koutarou. Oh well, it was worth it once, it'll be worth it a second time.

Bloody looking forward to this!

Hopefully, we’ll get to see more focus on Tae-Chan this upcoming Season and just the back to the usual again!

Amazing and somewhat Unconventional Announcement Trailer too, I really like to see something out of the ordinary like this!

I'm super hyped about this! The only thing I didn't like about the first season was the CGI, so hopefully they'll put a little more effort in that area.

Mirai Nikki is TRASH
Angel Beats is horrible.
Charlotte is a dumpster fire.
Shinsekai Yori has no characters.
Oreimo's S2 specials don't actually exist.

As others said this was expected. The first season was pretty funny and entertaining so hopefully the second season maintains that.

Also, is no one going to mention how the original post, where the synopsis is being explained, says "reality hit her like a truck"......that was dirty xD
I'm no special story or anything. I'm just a manga that wants to be read, like you could find anywhere. But, if, for argument's sake, you were to adapt me into an anime series, it would certainly be....a tragedy.

They don't own the Idolmaster franchise, they just worked on a Idolmaster game. Bandai Namco is the one who owns Idolmaster. Incidentally, they also own Love Live as Sunrise is their subsidiary and Aikatsu as Bandai is their subsidiary.

Never watched the first season so I have no idea if this sequel is necessary or not.

Great for people who wanted more though.
