Netflix is showing another Mark Millar comic book adaptation with Super Crooks. What about Season 2 of the wacky anime series?
The Netflix anime Super Crooks is about petty criminal Johnny Bolt, who recruits a team of eight supervillains to carry out a massive robbery in Spain. The series is based on Mark Millar’s comic of the same name* and is set in the same universe as Jupiter’s Legacy.
Will there be a Super Crooks Season 2?
Super Crooks has been available on Netflix since November 25, 2021. Since it is an original series, the streaming service has the exclusive publishing rights. The 13 episodes were produced in the studio Bones (My Hero Academia) directed by Motonobu Hori.
Whether a Super Crooks Season 2 will follow, we can not say. Unfortunately, Netflix hasn’t officially renewed the anime yet. Also, how successful Super Crooks was with the streaming provider is uncertain. Netflix usually keeps such views secret, so we can draw conclusions from this at the moment.
Super Crooks: Alternatives on Netflix
Should Super Crooks be renewed, we will update this post. Meanwhile, you can pass the time with similar anime series on Netflix. In the superhero and villain genre, there is a relatively wide selection of alternatives worth seeing.
Tiger & Bunny also conveys an “American” feeling and follows two fundamentally different superheroes who go on the fight against evil for their sponsors. Hero Mask is also worth a look. At the center of the story is the hot-blooded secret agent James Blood.
Super Crooks Season 2 Release Date
We are still waiting for Netflix to renew ‘Super Crooks’ for season 2, As the anime has not been officially renewed for Super Crooks Season 2, neither Netflix nor Studio Bones have revealed a targeted release date. The anime debuted with 13 episodes on Netflix on November 25, 2021, after its initial announcement in March 2019. Unfortunately, even if the anime is renewed for a second adventure, fans should expect a long wait before Johnny Bolt and his crew returns to Netflix. Not only will a fresh narrative need creating, but Studio Bones themselves also have an incredibly busy schedule for 2022.
Arguably one of the biggest and best animation studios currently working in the industry, Bones is responsible for the likes of My Hero Academia, Mob Psycho 100 and Bungo Stray Dogs.
According to HITC, if Super Crooks return for season 2 with an original storyline, it will be the latter stages of 2022, perhaps even 2023, considering the timeline for Bones’ other more lucrative titles.

One last heist. That’s what they all say, right? Just one final score, and everyone can retire and take up fishing. Thing is, the jails are filled with super villains who thought the same thing, and got busted. But the Heat’s in a jam. He’s run up the kind of gambling debt that – if he can’t pay it back in cash – will be paid in blood. Nobody wants to see the most beloved supercrook of all time rubbed out by the mob – especially his biggest fan, Johnny Bolt. And Johnny’s got a plan to help the Heat and make all his buddies disgustingly rich at the same time. Unfortunately for Johnny’s recruits, they have to head to Spain and rob the world’s most notorious super villain blind. And that’s where things get tricky.
