The good news is that there will be a lot of leftover source material from Akumi Agitogi’s original light novel series that will be adapted for My Happy Marriage season 2, after the 12-episode finale airs on September 20.
My Happy Marriage volume 12 is expected to complete the complete adaptation of Volume 2 of the original novel series with chapters three, four and five of the said volume appearing in this 1 final volume.
As of September 2023, seven complete light novel volumes of My Happy Marriage have been published in Japan, and an eighth volume will release domestically in March 2024. This means that if If the anime adaptation maintains its current pace, the TV show My Happy Marriage could have up to four seasons.
Next, we have the popularity that the anime My Happy Marriage certainly has in abundance. Before the final episode of season 1, the film is achieving an impressive score of 8.24/10 on MyAnimeList, 8.2/10 on IMDB, 80% on Anilist, 4.3/5 on Anime Planet and even reaches 100%. audience score on Rotten Tomatoes.

An anime adaptation of My Happy Marriage was announced in April 2022 and premiered in July 2023.
With a production cycle lasting 15 months, fans can expect My Happy Marriage season 2 to premiere in July 2024 on the Summer edition or more likely in October 2024 as part of the Fall edition.
