By Samona Punjabi / February 22, 2022

Season 1 of the anime series Classroom of the Elite ended five years ago, in 2017. Ever since the first season of the anime ended, fans have been hoping for a second season. With the amount of time that has passed since season 1 first premiered, it seems that fans had given up on a second season ever coming out. However, it seems that the long-awaited second season of the TV anime adaptation of Shogo Kinugasa's light novel series Classroom of the Elite has finally gotten the green light!

The official description for the first season of Classroom of the Elite reads:

"Kiyotaka Ayanokoji has just enrolled at Tokyo Koudo Ikusei Senior High School, where it's said that 100% of students go on to college or find employment. But he ends up in Class 1-D, which is full of all the school's problem children. What's more, every month, the school awards students points with a cash value of 100,000 yen, and the classes employ a laissez-faire policy in which talking, sleeping, and even sabotage are permitted during class. One month later, Ayanokoji, Horikita, and the students of Class D learn the truth of the system in place within their school..."
