A second season premiered in March 2019, followed by a live-action film in May 2019. A sequel live-action film was scheduled to open in May 2021 after a COVID-19 delay, but delayed yet again to that June due to COVID-19 and the extended state of emergency in Japan. Katsura Saiki‘s Kakegurui Twins manga spinoff is inspiring a new anime on Netflix that will debut this August.
