The best person to take on goblin extermination jobs is back. A new season of Goblin Slayer is on the way, and people can see its first trailer. The Goblin Slayer season 2 trailer was uploaded alongside other production information to the series’ official website.
The Goblin Slayer season 2 trailer focuses on a monologue by the titular character, while showing off some of his companions. Based on the light novel series by Kumo Kagyu, Goblin Slayer follows the exploits of a man known as the Goblin Slayer (in the series, all characters are identified by their professions). A silver-ranked adventurer, Goblin Slayer is known in his community as unusual, since he only takes on assignments related to hunting goblins. His single-minded focus on the “little demons” has given him unmatched expertise in the field of killing them. He uses that experience, as well as carefully selected specialist equipment and tricks, to turn the tide in various battles against goblins, who are more formidable than their low status implies. His face is also never shown, as he refuses to remove his distinctive helmet.
The Goblin Slayer season 2 trailer also shows some of the protagonists’ companions, as well as characters who show up later in the series. The Priestess, Elf Archer, Dwarf Shaman, Lizardman, are all visible. A glimpse of the blindfolded Sword Maiden can also be seen, dressed in the same outfit as she wore in her earlier years as an adventurer.
Check out the trailer below.
Goblin Slayer season 2 will debut in 2023. The first season aired in 2018, and is available on various streaming services. A tabletop RPG adaptation was published by Yen Press.
