The Dragon Ball Super anime series stopped airing back in March 2018, soon after the finish of the Universal Survival arc in the 131st episode.
The manga series went on with two brand new arcs that have been made public at this point.
As Toei Animation recently announced that they are working on a new Dragon Ball Super movie, fans are wondering when they will get to watch new episodes.
The series is still going strong thanks to the new chapters of the Dragon Ball Super manga, and if you kept an eye on the series’ latest evolution, you know that we will soon meet a new season with fresh episodes.
That announcement left numerous fans across the world wondering when they would get to watch the new series.
Though the Dragon Ball Super manga kept releasing new chapters monthly after the anime’s 131-episode run, Toei Animation revealed that a Dragon Ball Super feature film would be released next year, but they didn’t confirm that new episodes of the anime series would be launched after the movie.
In July 2021, Toei Animation announced their next Dragon Ball Super feature film – Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero. Its first teaser depicted Goku, which got many people overhyped.
Toei revealed that the film’s action would happen in the future, a few hours after the events of the Tournaments of Power arc.
Since the new film will be released in 2022, it’s believed that Season 2 of the anime series will soon follow.
The new website of Dragon Ball Super also saw the contribution of Toei animator Florence Jay Dominguito, who has been teaming up with Toei Animation Philippines since ten years ago and took part in many Dragon Ball projects.
At some point during one interview with him, he was questioned regarding his vision of the future of the Dragon Ball franchise.
“As a fan, I’m really looking forward to new movies and merchandise. I’m also excited about the new anime that will continue Dragon Ball Super.”
The auto-translated statement made us believe that Dominguito could have possibly just confirmed the 2nd season of Dragon Ball Super.
Still, there may be some misinterpretation due to the auto-generated translation.
Japanese translator Ken Xyro confirmed that the animator said:
“I’m also excited to see if there will be a new continuation of Dragon Ball Super TV anime.”
In an interview, a TOEI animator talks about being excited for the new Dragon Ball Super anime.
However, this is a machine translation. In Japanese he says, “I’m also excited to see if there will be a new continuation of Dragon Ball Super tv anime”.

Ryō Horikawa, Vegeta’s voice actor in the series’ Japanese iteration, has recently mentioned that they’ll be making a comeback for new episodes of Dragon Ball Super, but he didn’t go into detail.
He posted a tweet where he revealed that he’d just left a meeting with the animation company but didn’t provide additional details.
Here is the translation of @ryohorikawa ‘s tweet.
A continuation of Dragon Ball series or a new Dragon Ball movie. What do you think? #DragonBall #DragonBallSuper #animenews pic.twitter.com/ILAJd7w2LH
