The second season of Shokugeki no Soma: Ni no Sara (Food Wars! The Second Plate) has been anounced to have 13 episodes and will have returning cast to reprise their roles.
The anime, like the manga, focuses on Soma, who has enrolled in an elite culinary school that is not only difficult to enter; but has a graduation rate of just 10 percent.
The first season had 24 episodes and ran from May to September last year.
The series will also have seven Blu-ray Disc volumes to be released, with each disc to contain two episodes save for the final one, which will be home to just one.
Shokugeki no Soma: Ni no Sara (Food Wars! The Second Plate) will premiere 2 July in Japan and should be airing on Animax at a later date.
