On Monday, March 8, TMS Entertainment released a new trailer and key visual for the second season of Megalo Box, titled Megalo Box 2: Nomad. Nomad will take place seven years following Joe’s fight against Yuri in the Megalonia final. The trailer showcases Joe, aged and battle-scarred over years of fighting in the ring. Now known with a new nickname of “nomad,” Joe has once again fitted himself in his old gear, once again fighting in staged underground matches.
The new season is scheduled to premiere on Japanese television this April 4, 2021. In North America, Funimation has announced that they will be simulcasting the new season on their FunimationNow streaming service. It is yet to be announced if Crunchyroll, who simulcast the first season, will also be doing the same for the second.

TMS Entertainment describes Megalobox 2: Nomad as follows:
“In the end, “Gearless” Joe was the one that reigned as the champion of Megalonia, a first ever Megalobox tournament. Fans everywhere were mesmerized by the meteoric rise of Joe who sprung out from the deepest underground ring to the top in mere three months and without the use of gear. Seven years later, “Gearless” Joe was once again fighting in underground matches. Adorned with scars and once again donning his gear, but now known only as Nomad…”
