I know a lot of people are asking the same question “Is the daily life of the immortal king over?” – that has been in our mind through all these past few months after Xian Wang de Richang Shenghuo or popularly known as The Daily Life of the Immortal King ended. This fun, dramatic and romantic school-cultivation donghua had surprised many fans during its stint from the first quarter of 2020 due to its parodic style of storytelling and similarities to anime series like One-Punch Man and The Disastrous Life of Saiki K.
It seems that it’s time for the fans to rejoice as The Daily Life of the Immortal King Season 2 has been announced as part of bilibili 2020-2021 Chinese anime lineup which was revealed during their event last November 21, 2020. In fact, it is not only the Daily Life of the Immortal King which has been renewed for another season but also some of its contemporaries from bilibili Chinese anime lineup this 2020, thus we are also getting the following:
- Bai Yao Pu / The Manual of Hundred Demons Season 2
- Chivalrous Hero Shen Jianxin Season 3
- Yuan Long / Carp Reborn Season 2
- Tian Bao Fuyao Lu / The Legend of Tang Season 2
Albeit, I am expecting for these sequels to happen soon after The Furious Yama gets its sequel immediately last July after its hilarious stint last January of 2020. Nevertheless, the Daily Life of the Immortal King Season 2 sure will be one of the top upcoming Chinese anime of 2021.
The Daily Life of the Immortal King Season 2 Trailer & Release Date
An official trailer for The Daily Life of the Immortal King Season 2 has been unveiled by bilibili during its event and it seems that our young lord is bringing up the fight to the next level despite the effort he exerted to keep a low-key life. That is probably expected knowing that what he did from the finale of the previous season may also catch the attention of other gods and immortals.
I am sure that many fans are now asking, when is the release of the Daily Life of the Immortal King season 2? bilibili didn’t unveil a specific release date yet, but it is slated for release in 2021. I think we might possibly have it premiere by either January or April as part of either the winter or spring 2021 donghua lineup respectively. Haoliners Animation League is also coming back for the production of the Chinese anime. I hope that they’ll do the animation better this time, just like what they did with the Hundred Demon Manual (Bai Yao Pu), and the ongoing Heaven Official’s Blessing (Tian Guan Ci Fu).

For my readers who haven’t watch The Daily Life of the Immortal King yet, it is a 15-episode Chinese anime that aired during the winter 2020 lineup from Haoliners Animation League and bilibili. If you love cultivation story in Chinese anime, with an overpowered main character who keeps a low-key life, then you’ll definitely enjoy this.
Synopsis: As a cultivation genius who has achieved a new realm every two years since he was a year old, Wang Ling is a near-invincible existence with prowess far beyond his control. But now that he’s sixteen, he faces his greatest battle yet – Senior High School.
Now, despite my love-hate relationship with this series, I am still looking forward to its return and excited to see what has been in store for us as we follow Wang Lin and his friends’ high school life once again.
