After revealing a little over a week ago that the romantic-comedy TV anime Girlfriend, Girlfriend, based on the manga by Hiroyuki, would be getting a second season, the official announcement art for Girlfriend, Girlfriend season two was released on the Twitter account for the series, showing Rika, Nagisa, Saki and Shino all holding up a sign that declares that the second season is in production.

The first season of the Girlfriend, Girlfriend TV anime premiered on July 3, 2021, and aired until September 18. It was directed by Satoshi Kuwabara (The Quintessential Quintuplets) at studio Tezuka Productions, with series composition by Keiichiro Ochi (My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU Climax!) and character designs by Akiko Toyoda (Ikebukuro West Gate Park sub-character design). Crunchyroll is streaming the series, describing it as such:
The protagonist, Naoya, is a first-year in high school. He asks out Saki, a girl he has been in love with, and she agrees to be his girlfriend. He’s currently on cloud nine.
But then, a beautiful girl named Nagisa comes up to Naoya one day and tells him that she wants to go out with him. Naoya feels himself wavering because Nagisa is such a good girl, and he comes to a decision! A new kind of romcom from a rather unexpected decision is about to begin!
