The first part of Bleach: The Thousand-Year Blood War ended with a two-part finale on December 26, 2022, and that finale was immediately followed by a trailer for the second part, which offered a release window of July 2023. It does, however, open the door for more cut content to be restored in the future, either later in Part 2 or even into Parts 3 or 4.

Bleach: The Thousand-Year Blood War Part 2 released a new trailer on May 28, 2023, showcasing footage from the upcoming episodes and teasing some anticipated events. It is now confirmed that Bleach: The Thousand-Year Blood War Part 2 will debut on July 8, 2023, and weekly from that point onward. Like the first part, the new episodes of Part 2 will debut on Hulu first in the US, and Disney Plus elsewhere. The series will stream with subtitles available for six languages, making availability for simulcasting far greater than it has been previously.

The second trailer for Bleach: The Thousand-Year Blood War Part 2, which contains actual footage from the new episodes, also provided a solid date for its return: July 8, 2023. The series is said to be streaming with subtitles in six different languages on that date, opening up week-to-week simulcast viewing for many new fans. Word on the dubbed version of Bleach: The Thousand-Year Blood War Part 2 is said to be coming “soon,” although Viz did not provide any context as to when that would be. Dubbed episodes of Part 1 were about four weeks behind, and debuted on Fridays instead, so it’s likely the dub will debut sometime in late July or early August.

While we don’t know exactly how many episodes of Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War there will be, we can make a pretty good guess thanks to its release structure.

The series will be divided into four ‘cours’ (essentially small seasons of television shows), which typically run for around 12-13 episodes. The first 13 episodes aired in 2022. We can expect another 36-39 episodes to run across 2023 and 2024. The first cour ended on December 26 with the series going on a short break until July 2023.

Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War Season 2 Plot

Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War Season 2 Plot

Bleach‘s “Thousand-Year Blood War” arc occurs roughly two years after Sosuke Aizen’s downfall in the original Bleach anime. The complacent, arrogant Soul Reapers were thrown into chaos when their longtime enemy, the spiritually talented Quincy tribe, launched an all-out assault on both Hueco Mundo and the Soul Society itself, with Quincy king Yhwach determined to avenge his people’s defeat against the original 13 Captains centuries ago. The first battle devastated the Soul Society until Yhwach finally departed, with Captain Yamamoto killed in action and several other captains having their bankai stolen.

Now, protagonist Ichigo Kurosaki and his Soul Reaper friends must train hard and get ready for round two against the elite Sternritter, and for Ichigo, that means facing the truth of his Quincy maternal line and saying goodbye to the original Zangetsu, the last vestiges of Masaki Kurosaki’s protective power. At last, Ichigo has obtained his true Zangetsu, derived from his inner Hollow, and he will boldly dive back into the action with Rukia, Renji and the others to save the universe from Yhwach’s wrath — but Ichigo’s Quincy friend Uryu Ishida might have other plans in mind.

Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War Season 2 Story Details

Bleach: The Thousand-Year Blood War Part 2 should pick up exacly where Part 1 left off, which would be about chapter 543 of the manga. The first part adapted around 60 chapters, so it’s reasonable to assume that the second part will cover a similar amount of ground, putting the end of Part 2 at about chapter 600. At least one cut manga fight scene is being added to the anime, and the addition of content not from the manga may slow the pacing down a bit. Some of these storylines were teased in the trailer for Part 2.

A second trailer was released on May 28, 2023, showcasing actual footage from Part 2. It highlights a number of hotly anticipated scenes and moments, such as the reveal of Shinji Hirako’s Bankai, the battle for the Soul Society, a new look for Ichigo, and Uryu’s ascension within the ranks of the Quincy army. The trailer also teased the involvement of Sosuke Aizen, Bleach‘s former biggest nemesis, in the war, whose chaotic presence could be what turns the tide of battle, either for or against the Soul Reapers. Perhaps one of the most striking moments is a gigantic and mysterious monster rampaging through the Soul Society’s Seireitei, destroying everything in its path. The trailer also debuted the new opening theme song for Part 2, “star” by w.o.d.

Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War Season 2 Cast and Characters

Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War Season 2 Cast and Characters

Bleach is well known for having a massive cast of characters–far too many to list here. So far, nearly every Japanese voice actor from the original Bleach anime has chosen to reprise their role for The Thousand-Year Blood War. The same has largely been true for the English dub cast, with a few exceptions. Ichigo’s friend, Yasutora “Chad” Sado, is now being portrayed by Alain Mesa, rather than Jamieson Price

Kisuke Urahara is now being portrayed by Doug Erholtz, who also voices Gin Ichimaru, seemingly because his previous voice actor retired from the industry. Jushiro Ukitake is now voiced by Aleks Le, who also now voices Shinji Hirako. It’s possible other roles will be recast in Part 2, but most relevant characters have already been reintroduced in Part 1, so there shouldn’t be much need for that. There has, thus far, been no news of casting for new roles in Part 2, and likely won’t be for the dub until after the subtitled episodes begin to the premiere.
