On August 10th, 2020, the official Dragon Maid Twitter account announced that Miss Kobayashi, Tohru, and the gang will be coming back with season 2 of the animated series. The season will be named Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid S, the "S" standing for "Super Supreme Second Life Start" (because of course it does). The series, like the first season, will be animated by the beloved animation studio Kyoto Animation, which has received a fair share of unfortunate deadly incidents in recent times. Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid S is set to premiere some time in 2021, with an exact date still pending.

Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid is based on the manga series of the same name by Coolkyousinnjya. The manga is published by Futabasha, serialized in their Monthly Action magazine since May 2013. Funimation describes the series as follows:

Miss Kobayashi lives a normal life until she befriends a dragon named Tohru. The two end up living together and make a unique arrangement: Tohru serves as Kobayashi’s very own live-in maid! In the human form of a cute girl, she starts working as a maid dragon. She takes care of usual things like cleaning the house and cooking, but doing typical human things can still be a challenge for a dragon!
