Tokyo Vice Season 2 Release Date
Yoshino, the last episode of Season 1, came out on April 28, 2022. Most people didn't expect the network to be updated so quickly. Tokyo Vice Season 2 will come out next year, probably between the beginning and middle of 2023.
The exact date hasn't been set yet. It should come out around April, just like the first season, but there hasn't been an official announcement yet.
Tokyo Vice Season 2: Plot
“Jake Adelstein, an American journalist, relocated to Tokyo in 1999 and must pass a written exam in Japanese to be considered for a position on the staff of a famous Japanese newspaper,” according to the series' premise.
He is the organization's first foreign-born journalist, and he works his way up from the bottom. He is taken under the wing of a veteran vice squad detective and begins to explore the dark and dangerous world of the Japanese yakuza.”
Tokyo Vice Season 2 is expected to expand on this established premise and continue the plotlines from Season 1's finale episode, in which viewers saw that “While Samantha risks it all for Polina's safe return, Sato is forced to mix business with pleasure; as Katagiri devises a plan to finally bring down Tozawa, Jake is confronted by the crime boss's men.”
As a result, Tokyo Vice Season 2 is planned to continue the story in terms of characters and plotlines for another season beginning at the end of the finale episode to fill any potential gaps and cliffhangers.
