Durarara!! season 2 continues in January 2015 where it left off from 2010.

Starting January 2015, the color gangs and mysteries return in the second season of Durarara!!, officially titled Durarara!! x2. This will be Studio Shuka’s production debut as it replaces Brains Base, the animation studio responsible for the first season.

Durarara!! is a 13-volume light novel series by Ryohgo Narita with an anime and manga adaptation. The first TV anime series debuted in 2010 and covered only the first three volumes of the light novel series. Durarara!! x2 takes place six months after the end of the first season in Ikebukuro. The series’ plot is told through converging plot lines from various characters throughout Ikebukuro. Mikado Ryuugamine moves to Tokyo to reunite with his friend Masaomi. Intrigued by the colorful life of Ikebukuro, Mikado gets involved with a list of people Masaomi warns him about and even sees a headless rider on a motorcycle. This is a modern story with a dose of the supernatural.

While Studio Shuka will be handling the production of Durarara!! x2, most of the staff worked on the first season. The producer of the first season founded Shuka, and he recruited most of the old staff for Durarara!! x2.

Nearly five years will have passed between the production of the first season to the second. Many fans had lost hope that there would ever be a second season of the anime, but the wait is almost over.
