The first episode of Kakushigoto premiered on April 2, 2020, having 12 episodes in total. The final episode ended on quite a conclusive note which didn’t leave the viewers hanging or confused. However, Season 1 of this Anime was an adaptation of Volume 11 of the Manga series, and the 12th and final volume, has come out long back. But there still hasn’t been any official news about the Anime adaptation of the last volume. Even though the first season doesn’t cover all the available material, the main plotline was resolved in the series.

As of now, there is no confirmation about the sequel, whatsoever.

Kakushigoto: My Dad’s Secret Ambition Season 1 Recap
The plot of Kakushigoto majorly revolves around Kakushi, a comedy manga artist who creates Adult Manga Content for a living. Everything is smooth until he becomes a father to a baby girl, Hime Gotou. His only agenda after she takes birth is to keep his profession hidden from his little daughter at all costs. He succeeds at keeping it hidden for 10 years but as Hime slowly starts growing older and smarter, he is scared of her getting aware of the fact that her father creates dirty/vulgar content to earn money. He is compelled by the fear that his daughter would lose respect for him and feel ashamed to be associated with him. In order to not reveal the secret, he would go to great lengths by revamping his office building and storing his manuscripts far away from her.
He leaves his house wearing a suit and tie in front of his daughter every day but as soon as Hime is out of his sight, he changes into casual attire. As the story moves further, we see Kakushi struggling to keep this secret for longer which comes across as humorous. Meanwhile, Hime as a daughter wants her father to be someone important. It is quite a comical ride watching a single father go through so much to hide one silly secret which eventually is revealed to his daughter. The overall storyline is super sweet and heartwarming and makes you feel more than what you expected in the beginning.
