On the official Twitter account for the anime adaptation of the manga written and illustrated by Akane Shimizu, Hataraku Saibou, the second promotional video for the second season of the project was published, titled Hataraku Saibou !! (with two exclamation marks). The video confirms that the series will premiere in Japan on January 9, 2021.
The series will be broadcast in parallel to the animated adaptation of the spin-off manga Hataraku Saibou Black, which is produced by another studio, but which will be broadcast in the same programming block one after another. Shimizu has been publishing the original manga in Kodansha publishing house's Monthly Shonen Sirius magazine since March 2015, and has inspired a considerable number of spin-off series based on other cell types. After a two-year hiatus, the manga resumed on October 26.
