Rieko Hinata launched the light novels in December 2018. The series ended with the fourth volume in September 2020. A side-story volume was also released in December 2021.

Considering there are four volumes and a side story volume, the second season would most likely be the final season. The first two canon volumes have been covered, and just the same amount is left to be adapted.
