It was revealed on the cover of the second 2016 issue of Shounen Jump magazine that Shokugeki no Souma (Food Wars) will receive a second season.

Ever since he was a child, fifteen-year-old Souma Yukihira has helped his father by working as the sous chef in the restaurant his father runs and owns. Throughout the years, Souma developed a passion for entertaining his customers with his creative, skilled, and daring culinary creations. His dream is to someday own his family's restaurant as its head chef.

Yet when his father suddenly decides to close the restaurant to test his cooking abilities in restaurants around the world, he sends Souma to Tootsuki Culinary Academy, an elite cooking school where only 10 percent of the students graduate. The institution is famous for its "Shokugeki" or "food wars," where students face off in intense, high-stakes cooking showdowns.

As Souma and his new schoolmates struggle to survive the extreme lifestyle of Tootsuki, more and greater challenges await him, putting his years of learning under his father to the test. (Source: MAL Rewrite)

It has been serialized since November 2012 and currently has 15 volumes publishing with the 16th volume to be released next year on January 4. Previously, the series received a 24-episode TV anime adaptation that aired from April 4 to September 26, 2015.

No brainer and hope it's also 24 episodes. With how the manga is going, a third season is also possible in the future.

No surpise as most people's reaction here. It was a matter of time when we would get the announcement.

Excited for the rest of the arc and the characters that will appear.

If they expand on the story and don't rush it this could prove to be a really good anime. The graphics were on point, the plot is pretty unique seeing as it's all based on a school oriented environment for chefs. It's gullible to see the characters have orgasms over the tastes, but the sarcasm and challenges are interesting to watch. Also questioning if there's enough content to complete a second season like everyone else is.
