Chainsaw Man fans, rejoice: MAPPA announced on Sunday that a new anime film is currently in production, continuing the story of Denji’s time as a Devil hunter following the events of the anime’s first season.

The movie, titled Chainsaw Man – The Movie: Reze Arc, is set after the events of the Katana Man arc of the original manga and will follow Denji’s relationship with Reze, a mysterious love interest who harbors a darker and more… let’s just say “explosive” side than he is aware of.

No official release date has been announced as of yet, but it’s fair to guess that MAPPA will announce more information regarding the film’s eventual premiere sometime later next year.

There’s also no word yet as to the potential production or premiere of a second season of Chainsaw Man, which aired its first 12-episode season in 2022. It’s possible that Chainsaw Man – The Movie: Reze Arc will lead into an eventual announcement of a second season, similar to how the premiere of 2020’s Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – The Movie: Mugen Train precluded the second season of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba, which later re-edited the movie into its own 7-episode television arc.

Chainsaw Man is available to stream on Crunchyroll.
