The Aniplex 48-Hour TV livestream event revealed the first promotional video for the second season of Hataraku Saibou (Cells at Work!) television anime on Saturday. The second season will air under the title Hataraku Saibou!! in January 2021.

A theatrical episode titled Tokubetsu Jouei-ban "Hataraku Saibou!!" Saikyou no Teki, Futatabi. Karada no Naka wa "Chou" Oosawagi! will screen in Japanese theaters ahead of its television broadcast in the second season on September 5. The episode will be based on a story from the fifth manga volume.

Hirofumi Ogura (Kuroshitsuji II, Anime de Wakaru Shinryounaika) is replacing Kenichi Suzuki as the director for the second season at David Production. Masaru Kitao (Doukyonin wa Hiza, Tokidoki, Atama no Ue.) is joining Takahiko Yoshida and Keiko Tamaki as a chief animation director.

Norihito Ishii (Penguin Highway) is taking over Nakajima Yutaka as the CG director. Tomoyasu Hosoi (Satsuriku no Tenshi assistant art director) is the new art director. Rest of the production staff and cast will reprise their roles.

Hataraku Saibou adapts Akane Shimizu's comedy manga of the same title, which has been serialized in Shounen Sirius magazine since January 2015. Kodansha published the fifth and latest volume in August 2017.

The first anime season aired in 13 episodes in Summer 2018. The television series was followed by a special episode that aired on December 27 that year.

Kodansha Comics licensed the manga in English in March 2016 and released the fifth volume in November 2017.

Yup, hurray for more anime Biology lessons! Looks like we’ll be seeing a whole bunch of more bodily functions and whatnot, judging from the PV, so kind of hyped for that!

A little surprising with the Director change but here’s to hoping that won’t affect too much. January 2021 is quite the wait though, I must say. Fire Force and Jojo Part 6 seems to be taking quite a bit of Liberty but nothing wrong with that really.
