Near the beginning of 2022, Netflix released the first season of their new animated show The Cuphead Show! Based on the 2017 award-winning video game Cuphead, this movie is about two brothers, Cuphead and Mugman, who get into a series of crazy adventures in a cartoony world inspired by the works of Walt Disney and Max Fleischer.
The first season of The Cuphead Show! won people over with its likable characters and cute 1930s style, so it’s no surprise that Netflix renewed it for a second season. So, we made a handy, easy-to-read guide that answers all the questions you might have about Season 2 of The Cuphead Show, like when it comes out, who’s in it, and what the show’s future might look like.
When Will The Cuphead Show Season 2 Be Released
The second season of The Cuphead Show will start on Netflix on August 19, 2022. Since the show is made by Netflix, most likely all of the new episodes will come out on the same day.

How Many Episodes Does The Cuphead Show Season 2 Have
As of this writing, there is no official number of episodes for Season 2 of The Cuphead Show. But the first season had twelve episodes, and each one was less than sixteen minutes long. The second season will probably be the same, especially since it’s easy to watch them all at once.
In a February 2022 interview with Rafael Motamayor of New business, The Cuphead Show! executive producer Dave Wasson talked about how he and the team came up with the show’s episodic structure:
We like short cartoons a lot, and most of them were made to stand alone. So, I think our first thought was to make a bunch of shorts that could stand on their own, but then we remembered that it would be on a streaming service.
So that each episode would feel pretty complete on its own, it seemed like a good idea to also have a bigger story with the Devil. This means that we get the best of both worlds. We were able to make some really fun shorts that stand on their own and also have a story that runs through the whole thing. So it was like having our cake and eating it, too.
Cosmo Segurson, who is also a co-executive producer, talked about how the show was made for streaming:
And I feel like when we first started the gig, I had Netflix and was watching stuff, but then I started to think, “Okay, how am I going to watch streaming media?” Because the idea that you can watch an entire season on a weekend or whatever is still pretty new to me. So, we knew we needed things to tie it all together so that people would want to keep watching to find out what happens. So there have been cliffhangers, which have been a lot of fun.
Who’s in the Voice Cast of The Cuphead Show Season 2
Most of the voice actors from the first season of The Cuphead Show! will be back for Season 2. This includes Tru Valentino (Fast & Furious: Spy Racers) as Cuphead, Frank Todaro (Transformers: War for Cybertron Trilogy) as Mugman, Grey Griffin (Avatar: The Last Airbender) as Ms. Chalice, Joe Hanna (Robot Chicken) as Elder Kettle, Luke Millington-Drake (Loot)
What Is The Cuphead Show Season 2 About
As of this writing, there are no official details about what will happen in Season 2 of The Cuphead Show! Check out the official plot summary for Season 1 to remind yourself what the show is about for now:
Based on the award-winning video game that burst onto the scene with beautiful retro animation, THE CUPHEAD SHOW! is a character-driven comedy series that follows the unique misadventures of loveable, impulsive scamp Cuphead and his cautious, but easily swayed, brother Mugman.
As the two look for fun and adventure in their strange home world, the Inkwell Isles, they always have each other’s backs. If there is only one cookie left, each person gets his cup. THE CUPHEAD SHOW! is a mix of nostalgic fun, laugh-out-loud jokes, and a healthy dose of the creeps, especially when our heroes’ wacky enemy, the Devil himself, shows up to mess with them.
Even though we don’t have an official plot summary for Season 2, we do know that the story will involve new bosses from the game (as mentioned above), and Wasson did say that he and the rest of the team planned out the other seasons while working on the first:
We had to do both because it was the best thing to do. But we had a couple of months, maybe three months, to just work on writing. And we had this big board that was like a big thumbnail or something.
Bulletin board. And we had cards where we would write things like, “Okay, we know we want a Devil episode here, and then we want a couple of standalone, and then we want another… We had it all planned out. Then we know that Chalice needs to be here. So, even before we… We didn’t always have a full idea of what we were going to do.
We knew exactly where we wanted these episodes to go. So it was almost like you start with a rough sketch and then add more and more details and make the lines tighter and tighter. And that’s how the season was planned. So, we thought of the whole thing as one big thing we were working on the whole time.
But once we got artists on board, we had to say, “Okay, we’ll stop working on the big picture and instead focus on the details of this story and flash that out.” Then we’d go back to looking at the big picture. So, it was like going from seeing things up close to seeing things up close again and again.
