As soon as the first season of “Dr. Stone” aired its finale episode, its producers announced that it had been renewed. It was revealed through a video that was posted on YouTube.

The chapters were released weekly through Weekly Shōnen Jump, and the first story was posted there on March 6, 2017. As of November 2019, the manga has 13 volumes in all, so most likely, the animated version of “Dr. Stone” will only be available for three seasons due to the limited materials.
The upgraded character looks
One of the reported new features in the second season of “Dr. Stone” is the characters’ new looks. It was revealed by a known anime expert that Senku and the rest are getting new outfits complete with new gears.
On Twitter, DBSHypeX uploaded print images of what he said are the new looks of the characters. In the pictures, they were shown bedecked with accessories and gears that complete their much modern-looking ensembles. This is not a confirmed detail, but it originally came from a Japanese magazine.

Byakuya Ishigami has left many messages and hints for his son Senku to solve the mystery of petrification. In his time, he was not able to get answers why the Earth and everything in it froze while he and the other astronauts were out in space thousands of years ago.
Now, he is hoping Senku will solve everything, and this may possibly happen in “Dr. Stone” season 2’s “Stone Wars arc. Meanwhile, the release date fo “Dr. Stone” season 2 is not yet available at this time.
