The Detective is already Dead Season 2 Plot

Before getting into the things that are expected to happen in the second season, if it happens, let’s take a quick recap of the end of “The Detective is Already Dead Season 1”.

In the mysterious finale episode of season 1, we saw that the legendary detective Siesta shockingly comes back to rescue her sidekick. In the great face-off with Chameleon, her attention takes the body of Nagisa Natsunagi under her control to beat the opponent finally for good.

Although she then clears it to Kimihiko that she won’t be coming back to protect him again as it may prove to be a considerable obstacle in the way of the development of Nagisa as a new fabulous detective.

In the end, she confessed her love for Kimihiko and accepted that she has feelings for her sidekick. 

After considering the ending we expect that season 2 will explore their story further as they both have a strange combined past. Multiple illustrations were being shown which indicates that Siesta may have known Nagisa in history.

But the series never clearly explained how she knew Nagisa and we may expect that the second season will put light on the same. We hope that the team announces something soon positively.
