The Detective Is Already Dead Season 2 Trailer
The producers of The Detective Is Already Dead brought fans a solid promotional video teaser for the upcoming 2nd season, which you can view above.

The Detective Is Already Dead Story
Since he was young, Kimihiko Kimizuka has been a magnet for trouble.
He believed he was born with a curse that naturally draws him to all kinds of troublesome situations, from being forced to join flash mobs in the middle of a walk to being suddenly found at the site of crime scenes.
This all led to Kimihiko being kidnapped one day and forced to carry a suitcase onto an international flight. This is where he met Siesta, a self-proclaimed “legendary detective” who changed his life.
He became Siesta’s sidekick after helping her stop the plane’s hijacking. They solved countless cases together for three years until Siesta’s untimely death.
Left to his own devices, Kimihiko tries to overcome this tragedy and reintegrate himself back into everyday life while also solving cases that fall into his lap.
The Detective Is Already Dead Season 2 Expectations
The Detective Is Already Dead is based on the light novel series written by Nigojuu and illustrated by Umibōzu.
Media Factory started publishing the series in November 2019 under their MF Bunko J imprint, and in that same year, it won the 15th MF Bunko J Light Novel Rookie of the Year award.
TanMoshi released its seventh volume last August 25, 2022. With the first season covering only the first two volumes, fans can expect a few more seasons. Author Nigojuu even said during a 2020 interview that the main story “will need at least five or six more books.”
