Dengeki Bunko Winter Festival Online 2021 debuted a new promotional video for The Devil is a Part-Timer!.
The trailer video came with the announcement of the sequel season’s release window. The highly anticipated continuation of the popular series will be arriving in July 2022.

For the unveiled staff, Masahiro Yokotani is the series composer, Yudai Iino is the character designer, and Yoshihiro Takeda is the animation director.
Yen Press publishes both light novels and the manga adaptations. It describes the series as such:
After being soundly thrashed by the hero Emilia, the Devil King and his general beat a hasty retreat to a parallel universe… only to land plop in the middle of bustling, modern-day Tokyo! Lacking the magic necessary to return home, the two are forced to assume human identities and live average human lives until they can find a better solution. And to make ends meet, Satan finds gainful employment at a nearby fast food joint! With his devilish mind set on working his way up the management food chain, what will become of his thirst for conquest?
The series has also seen two manga adaptations. The 13-episode anime adaptation ran between April and June of 2013 with a second season announced back in March 2021.
