The official release dates for both installments were unveiled on the show’s official Twitter account in March, eliciting joyous reactions from viewers who had eagerly awaited news since the film’s initial announcement in December 2022. Aptly titled Spy x Family CODE: White, the franchise’s premier feature film is scheduled to premiere on December 22, 2023, just in time to enchant audiences during the Christmas weekend. Simultaneously, the release of Season 2 is slated for October 2023, heightening the anticipation among dedicated fans.
The initial season of the anime series achieved resounding success, concluding as recently as December 2022. The swift turnaround for a new season and a full-length movie within a span of less than a year is an impressive accomplishment for a fledgling show.
In 2022, Spy x Family emerged as a breakout sensation, dominating various “best of” and “most-viewed” lists in the anime realm. The series not only resonated with its fan base but also garnered critical acclaim for its refreshing departure from traditional anime tropes, such as the “absentee anime parents” and the spy genre’s “femme fatale” archetype. Creator Tatsuya Endo’s original manga has continued to amplify the franchise’s success into 2023, securing a place on the esteemed New York Times Bestseller List alongside renowned shonen titles like My Hero Academia and Jujutsu Kaisen.
