‘Cells at Work!’ is based on Shigemitsu Harada and Issei Hatsuyoshi’s manga series of the same name. ‘CODE BLACK’ depicts cells in a human body that have been given human characteristics. “Cells at Work!” or “Hataraku Saibou,” a David Production spin-off based on the Akane Shimizu manga series, inspired this new series. Because of its darker and more sombre themes, the spin-off rapidly distinguished itself as a stand-alone program despite the success of the original series.
As a result of sleep deprivation, inhumane working circumstances, and bad lifestyle choices, the main character is prone to medical catastrophes. The anime series, which was created in a nation where the term “karoshi” (overworked death) has its own phrase, has been widely praised for its relevancy in today’s culture.
Cells at Work! CODE BLACK Season 2 Release Date
Coding in the Cells: Black Ops Season 1 began airing on January 10th, 2021, and concluded on March 19th, 2021 with a total of 13 episodes. Director Hideyo Yamamoto and writer Hayashi Mori worked with Liden Films (“Berserk”) to bring the show to life.
Season 2 has yet to get an official announcement from the show’s creators. There was a cliffhanger at the end of the first season of the show. In the post-credits sequence, both Red Blood Cell AA2153 and White Blood Cell U-1196 are transfused into a new body. Since the new body AA2153 is inhabiting is in a more precarious situation than the previous one, it’s safe to assume that he and the others will have to continue operating under code-black conditions for the time being.
On the other hand, Director of Photography Junpei Takatsu, who worked on ‘Cells at Work! CODE BLACK’ season 1, expressed his desire to be engaged in any future seasons of the show on Twitter. This message was retweeted by the official Twitter account for the programme. Unquestionably, a confirmation of a second season will be made public soon by the show’s creators.
Cells at Workseason !’s 2 premiered more than two years after the end of season 1 of the show. Even though the spin-off has been created by a different studio, ‘Cells at Work! CODE BLACK’ should be released by the end of 2023 or the beginning of 2024 at the latest.

Cells at Work! CODE BLACK Season 2 Plot
Season 1 of ‘Cells at Work! CODE BLACK’ ended with the cracking of the rib cage due to chest compressions. After receiving electrical shocks from the defibrillator, the body eventually recovers. Stent installation removes obstruction from coronary arteries, allowing AA2153 and other red blood cells to resume their roles as transporters of oxygen and nutrients. By giving up harmful habits like smoking, drinking, and eating junk food, the body’s operating conditions for all cells improve dramatically.
As a result, it begins to obtain appropriate sleep and cease overworking itself. In the post-credits sequence, AA2153, U-1196, and others are transfused into new bodies by blood transfusion, as previously indicated. Separation occurs between AA2153 and U-1196, and the former loses consciousness as a result. His new body’s health is likely in a permanent code black when he wakes up, which is far worse than his previous one.
The original source is a finished manga series. As a result, the animators are aware of the final destinations of all plots and will most likely adapt the program to reflect this knowledge. AA2153 and U-1196 may be discouraged by their new circumstances in season 2, but they will keep trying to make things better for the code black team. They could get back together at some point. As a result of their hard effort, they may meet new friends and inspire them.
