The official Twitter account for the anime adaptation of Satoshi Wagahara’s The Devil is a Part-Timer! (Hataraku Maou-sama!) light novel series confirmed that the anime is getting a second season, almost eight years after the first season ended in 2013. The anime’s main cast will return for the second season. A promotional video for the upcoming season was also revealed.
The Devil is a Part-Timer! light novel began serialization on February 10, 2011. A manga adaptation by Akio Hiiragi launched in Kadokawa’s Monthly Comic Dengeki Daioh magazine in December 2011.
Yen Press publishes both the light novels and manga adaptation in English, and describes the series’ story as:
After being soundly thrashed by the hero Emilia, the Devil King and his general beat a hasty retreat to a parallel universe… only to land plop in the middle of bustling, modern-day Tokyo! Lacking the magic necessary to return home, the two are forced to assume human identities and live average human lives until they can find a better solution. And to make ends meet, Satan finds gainful employment at a nearby fast food joint! With his devilish mind set on working his way up the management food chain, what will become of his thirst for conquest?!
