Since there is no official statement for the renewal of the series, we can only expect or assume the time around which it could make it on Netflix. Since the creator has stated that it will be good to see the things going on, season 2 can come sometime in 2022. Yasuke anime is produced by animation studio MAPPA. It has given much popular anime such as Garo, Banana Fish, Dororo, etc.
The studio has released many shows and the schedule for 2021 is quite busy for it. Hence, it might consider the second season of Yasuke in 2022.
