The first season released in 2011 instantly became a hit and the show even had two movies based on the same characters- “ Tiger and Bunny: The Beginning” released on 22nd September 2012 and “Tiger and Bunny: The Rising” released on February 8, 2014. The anime finally became a part of Netflix in 2017 and quickly gained a larger fanbase.
After the first season, the viewers were waiting eagerly for the show to get renewed but unfortunately, no such news was coming out from the makers. But thanks to all the collective wishes of the audience, finally the show has been renewed for a Season 2 which will be releasing soon.

The growing impatience of the viewers regarding the wait for this season might finally be over in early 2022 as per the show’s IMDB page.
