Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Storyline: What Will Happen?
The first season of Jujutsu Kaisen concluded with the conclusion of the Death Painting Arc, which ran from chapters 55 to 64 of the manga. It has officially been announced that the second season will begin with an adaptation of Gojo’s Past Arc, which spans chapters 65-79 of the manga.
That is based on Gojo’s background, notably a mission in which Gojo and Geto escorted a Star Plasma Vessel to Tengen.
Season 2 of Jujutsu Kaisen will also adapt to the Shibuya Incident (chapters 79-136). Don’t worry, we’re not going into the spoiler zone here, but the Shibuya Incident Arc revolves entirely around a scheme to seal away Goto, driven by Gojo and his new cursed alliance.
That has been verified to last two whole courses, implying that the future season would last between 24-26 episodes.
Do you need a refresher on what’s already happened? Yuji and Nobara rejoin Megumi after defeating the Cursed Wombs Eso and Kechizu. Sukuna, on the other hand – employing a mouth in Yuji’s hand because of anime – consumes the finger, bringing him one step closer to reclaiming his ability.
The creeping evil, as well as that of the third Cursed Womb triplet, Choso, who has allied himself with series antagonists Geto and Mahito, will be the focus of the upcoming season.
There’s also the question of a mole in Jujutsu High, with teacher Utahime on the lookout for the devious magician. This will also play a significant role in the upcoming season.
In the penultimate episode of Season 2, Yuji, Megumi, and Nobara (together with Maki and Panda) are recommended for promotion to Grade 1 Sorcerers, and Gojo invites them to participate in a new mission.
Where Can I Watch Jujutsu Kaisen Before the Second Season?

Because of the recent merger with Funimation, expect to be able to stream Jujutsu Kaisen season 2, Demon Slayer season 3, and other hit anime exclusively on the streaming site.
Did Jujutsu Kaisen Copy Naruto?
The creator of Jujutsu Kaisen had previously admitted that Naruto was a key inspiration for his work. So it should not come as a surprise to many that both shows share a lot of similarities.
