Tower of God will return with a longer season

A recent leak claimed that the second season of the webtoon anime adaptation written and illustrated by SIU, "Tower of God," will be a two-part run (i.e., six semesters of broadcasting). However, the leak did not indicate whether these two parts will be issued consecutively or separately.

This second season is scheduled to premiere in the Summer-2024 season (July-September), and it is confirmed that it will adapt the "Prince's Return Arc" and the "Factory Battle Arc", which occur many years after the beginning of the story.

On the other hand, SIU has been publishing the webtoon "Tower of God" through the Naver Webtoon service since 2010. The play inspired a twelve-episode anime adaptation produced by Telecom Animation Film studios, under the direction of Takashi Sano and scripts written by Erika Yoshida, released in April 2020. The original work has gone into multiple suspensions due to constant physical exhaustion of the author.

Synopsis of Tower of God

There is a tower that summons chosen people called "Regulars" with the promise of granting their deepest wishes. Whether it's wealth, fame, authority, or something that surpasses them all, everything awaits those who make it to the top. Bam is a boy who had only known a dark cave, a dirty cloth, and an unreachable light all his life. Then, when a girl named Rachel approached him through the light, his entire world changed.

By becoming close friends with Rachel, he learned from her several things about the outside world. But when Rachel says she must leave him to climb the Tower, her world shatters around her. Promising to follow her no matter what it takes, he sets his sights on the tower and a miracle happens. Thus begins the journey of Bam, a young man who was not chosen by the Tower, but opened its doors by himself. They call their species "Irregulars," beings who have shaken the foundations of the Tower every time they set foot inside it.
