The 25th and final episode of the new Fruits Basket anime's first season ended with an announcement on Saturday that its second season will debut in 2020. The official website revealed two additional cast members.

Kakeru Manabe: Takuya Eguchi (Nijiiro Days)
Machi Kuragi: Ai Kakuma (Katsute Kami Datta Kemono-tachi e)

Fruits Basket adapts Natsuki Takaya's supernatural shoujo manga of the same title, which ran in Hana to Yume magazine between 1998 and 2006. Takaya launched the Fruits Basket: Another sequel manga in September 2015 and ended it in December 2018.

The new television anime began airing on April 6. Crunchyroll and Funimation streamed the show with subtitles and in English dub, respectively. Funimation also licensed the anime series for home video rights and plans to release the first 13 episodes on Blu-ray and DVD on November 19.

Yoshihide Ibata (FLCL Progressive) is directing the new anime at TMS Entertainment, with Taku Kishimoto (Boku dake ga Inai Machi) handling the series composition. Yuu Shindou (Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Comedy wa Machigatteiru.) is designing the characters. The new anime will adapt the manga series in its entirety.

A special event for the anime will be held on October 19. The voice cast members will appear at the event for a talk show and recital drama.

Fruits Basket (2019) is absolutely enthralling, emotional and so very genuine in its different ethical and moral presentations, and going through all that over the course of the past two seasons has been incredible!

Very grateful to TMS Productions and the Production Committees as a first-time watcher of the series for bringing such a fascinating series back to life!

2020, here we come! Can't wait to see how Season 2 goes!

I was surprised that these two characters appeared in the final ep. of the first season (and also excited). I cannot wait for the continuation.

Completely expected it considering it said '1st season' in the opening credits, but its always nice to have a confirmation. Looking forward to it, hope its in the first half of the year rather than the second so its not too much of a wait ^.^

Glad this got announced as soon as it did. The sooner I can have this wholesome show back in my life, the better. It was such a nice break from the dark and grim Shounens that are everywhere.

Lets hope that it'll air in the first half of the next year.

curious as to when, I'm very much looking foreword to more as I liked the first season alot more than I expected, especially when I barely recall much of 2001 for what I assumed was cause it was just alright but also partially cause its just been a long time

Sad taste you have there kid you came up to me in the first place making you look more like a kid who got slapped without me even knowing it and start crying about it to me

It was known from the start that another season would air, but I'm glad it is at the worst, going to air in 1 year from now (which isn't so long).

Ah finally! They didn't give any details about the second season, so I even started to worry.

Probably the only time I'll say this for a sequel announcement: "well yeah, no shit"

It's already announced to have a complete adaptation, plus the newest season's labeled as 1st season. And it obviously couldn't air anything later than 2020. So, pretty pointless news XD

In other words, water is wet.

I'm looking forward to it. There's a rumor that the series will be 63 or something episodes so perhaps there may be more to come after the next season. I hope it air Spring 2020.

The second half of the manga was so much better. I can only see this coming season in the range of 8.4-8.5 considering MAL's rating system. But wait for the final season (yet to be announced.) Could well reach 8.8-9.

1st Season rebroadcast this Fall (judging from the normal schedule, 2nd season might air after 1st season, which is Next Spring?)
Also, Key visual to the event
