Death Note Season 2 has clearly tested the patience of the fans and viewers. However, there are still no updates about the release date of Death Note Season 2.

Death Note Season 2: Expectations

The storyline of Death Note Season 2 might resume from where it ended in the first season. In the concluding scene of season 1, we saw Light Yagami and Teru Mikami left in shock as there was no response even after 40 seconds of having written a name over the pages of the notebook. Later on, they discover the truth that the pages of Death Note were replaced by fake pages when Takada was kidnapped.

However, Mikami revealed the location of the real notebook. Finding that Light’s name was not written, Light exposed himself as Kira. He confessed everything behind the happenings, but he failed.

Few moments later, Mikami stabs herself and dies. Thus, Light succeeds in escaping the Yellowbox warehouse. No one else except Aizawa goes after him.

In the ending scene, Ryuk writes Light’s name on the Death Note instead of leaving him to die in prison. Thus Ryuk sets him free.

Why did Ryuk kill Light?

Light Yagami ultimately met death as Ryuk killed him by writing his name in the Death Note. This happened because Ryuk had promised Light that if there occurred a situation when Light would be in trouble, he would set him free by writing his name in the Death Note.

Death Note received universal acclaim from critics as well as the audiences due to its excellent storyline and themes along with the outstanding performances by the cast. Despite this, it was banned in some places. Death Note was banned in Shenyang because the students seemed to have developing adverse habits. They used to alter their notebooks to look like Death Note and would write in the names of their enemies and even teachers.


Death Note 2 will have many new answers to discover to the already existing questions in the minds of the viewers. Also, there will be many more deaths. Moreover, it remains to be seen who will have the notebook and where will all of this lead.
