Robert Meyer Burnett had stated in his YouTube show, ROBSERVATIONS, that the last episode he was going to work on was the 24th episode. So, there is a possibility that we might be having three seasons, having eight episodes each.
However, the declaration of book 2 of the anime has already made fans and Dota 2 teams ecstatic.
Season 1 of the anime, based on Valve’s flagship MOBA, Dota 2, was well received by fans of the game and was trending on Netflix in many SEA, CIS, and SA countries like Peru, the Philippines, Ukraine, and Russia.
Studio Mir also tweeted about the announcement likely confirming that they will be handling production for the second season as well. Although it has not yet been confirmed, the terrific voice actors from Season 1 of the anime are expected to return for the second season.
With the anime and the Free To Play documentary gaining an extensive reach by featuring on Netflix, it will be intriguing to see if Valve decides to embed the True Sight documentaries of TIs and Major Champions also on Netflix.
