Akatsuki no Yona or Yona of the dawn is a fictional anime series that was adapted from a novel, both of which share the same name. it was written by Mizuho Kusanagi and produced by Pierrot studios which are currently working on series such as black clover and boruto. The series had a season 1 which was released a long time back and since then the fans have been anticipating the release of season 2. The show has gathered quite a huge fanbase along with great ratings and reviews from anime critics.
The show is mainly based on the concept of an exiled princess who is on her journey with her bodyguard while they search for 4 mighty warriors who lead the foundation of the kingdoms, a concept quite relatable to the anime titled seven deadly sins. Season 2 of the anime hasn’t received any update from the makers of the show yet, and with the current scenario in hand, it can be considered to be canceled as the show wasn’t a source of much profits, and the studios have got much more profitable shows in hand. The mangaka surely wanted to continue the anime series and thus there is also a chance still remaining for the show to release and there is no lack of content in the manga to work on for nearly 2-3 more seasons.
