The once niche medium of anime is now slowly making its way into the mainstream media and almost all streaming giants are catching up to its popularity. While Netflix is certainly ahead of the curve, Hulu isn’t far behind as it has a huge repository of some of the most popular anime shows. For obsessive anime fans, the platform has some great offerings, such as ‘Jojo’s Bizzare Adventure’ and ‘Space Dandy’. And even for the newbies looking for a gateway anime, the streaming platforming offers a huge list of shows like ‘Cowboy Bebop’, ‘One Punch Man’ and many others.
Of all the anime available on Hulu, ‘Fruits Basket’ is more of a quintessential shoujo genre that has been hugely popular over the past two decades. Despite being more of a fantasy anime, ‘Fruits Basket’ has gained worldwide acclaim for how realistic the characters seem. If you’ve already seen the first season of the reboot version of ‘Fruits Basket’, you have to wonder when the second season will hit Hulu. Well, here’s everything you need to know about the Hulu release date of ‘Fruits Basket’ Season 2.
Fruits Basket Season 2 Release Date: When Will It Premiere?
Season 1 of ‘Fruits Basket’ premiered on April 5, 2019, and shortly after, on April 9, 2019, Hulu released the anime’s first season. The second season of ‘Fruits Basket’ is scheduled for April 6, 2020. Unfortunately, there are no official announcements about its release on Hulu yet. According to the official list of upcoming movies and TV shows on Hulu, ‘Fruits Basket’ will not be released on the platform in April 2020.
Still, as Hulu and Funimation entered into a multi-tiered partnership in 2019, it seems very likely that the second season will be available on Hulu very soon. Our best guess is that ‘Fruits Basket’ Season 2 will be released on Hulu sometime in June 2020. If we get official news about the release on the streaming service, we’ll update it here in this section. Until then, you can watch other similar anime on Hulu.
Fruits Basket Season 2 English Dub
The English Dub of ‘Fruits Basket’ Season 1 is available on Funimation, Crunchyroll and Hulu. The second season of the anime is available on Funimation on April 6, 2020 at 9:30 am PT (and April 7 at 1:30 am in Japan). Earlier this year, it was announced that the English version of the first three episodes of ‘Fruits Basket’ Season 2 will hit select theaters on March 30, 2020. However, due to the COVID-19 outbreak, this was later canceled. No official announcements regarding the English dub release have been made since then. However, it is a possibility that Funimation will release the English version of ‘Fruits Basket’ by the end of April 2020.
