So do we know how far the 2nd season is supposed to cover up to?

Here's literally all we know for sure about the next season:

We don't know for sure, just that the Berserker Armor will make an appearance. Assuming of course, the show doesn't get cancelled halfway through due to poor ratings as viewers burned from last season decide not to tune in. Keeps fingers crossed.

If I were to make a guess as to where the endpoint would be, then I'd say it would be when Guts and company flee Flora's home about a third of the way through v27. The first season roughly covered five volumes of material (17-21) plus about the last third of v16. Since that endpoint means they would have to cover about the same amount of material give or take (volumes 22-26, plus the first third of v27), I'd say it's a good estimate. But don't quote me on this.

This is pretty similar to what I had guessed. We'll know soon enough anyway. I just hope they got to take more time on this one and not have it rushed like last season. I liked some episodes (mostly entertained during the entire season even though I swore a lot while watching it) but some parts were very terrible.

One can dream right?

Shamelessly dropping off info found on Reddit: https://twitter.com/berserk_anime/status/824792834297323521

Looks like the anime is to resume in April with a preview of sorts on May March 3rd. Official dates will be posted on the website (of course).

I think Delta meant March 3rd actually. But I think it's not so much a preview, and more likely a rebroadcast of the first season, based on info here:

Quote from: http://www.wowow.co.jp/detail/110351/-/01
Looking back on the special digest video together with the cast members in the first phase of the 12th episode of the first phase, the second phase of television animation of the strongest dark fantasy "Berserk" that begins in April is finished.

And here's an Anime News Network article with not much more info: http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2017-01-27/berserk-tv-anime-next-arc-premieres-in-april/.111524

Note that the ANN article lists the staff from the 2016 adaptation. But that's conjecture. We still don't know for sure if these are the same people on the new season. It's LIKELY to be the case, but I think there's an opportunity them to switch up the director and a few other key people. Or just stick with the exact same team and hope for the best... Yaaaaay.

I mean, it's just going to be a repeat of the 2016 series. Not exactly something to bring out the party hats for.  :void:
