Platinum End Season 2 has been officially confirmed to be the ending of the story as told by the Platinum End manga series.
The Platinum End anime TV series will be a total of 24 episodes divided into two cours.
What’s a “cour,” you might ask? For those unfamiliar with the lingo, a “cour” is a three-month block of TV broadcasting based on the physical seasons usually composed of 10 to 13 episodes.
In this case, Platinum End Season 2 is really Platinum End Part 2. It will not be a “split-cour” anime, which is when a single anime season takes a multi-month break before resuming TV broadcasting.
The anime is being animated by Studio Signal.MD, best known for Recover of an MMO Junkie and Cyborg 09: Call of Justice. The company also collaborated with other studios on FLCL Progressive.
In 2021, Studio Signal.MD also released Mars Red and Dragon Goes House-Hunting.
Platinum End Season 2/Part 2 will actually have a different main director. The first part will be directed by Hideya Takahashi (JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Golden Wind), while the second part will be helmed by Kazuchika Kise (Ghost in the Shell Arise).
Writer Shinichi Inotsume (Yona of the Dawn, Gleipnir, Gangsta JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Parts 1, 3, and 4) is handling the series composition. Artist Kouji Oodate (No Game No Life, key animator on Your Name) is the character designer. Composer Masahiro Tokuda (Deca-Dence, Cestvs: The Roman Fighter) wrote the music.
The Platinum End OP (opening) theme song music “Sense” is being performed by BAND-MAID, while the ED (ending) “Kofukuron” is being performed by Yuu Miyashita.
The Platinum End Part 2 OP/ED hasn’t been announced yet.
Here is the Platinum End story summary:

As of the last update, Studio Signal.MD or any company related to the production of the anime has not officially confirmed the exact Platinum End Season 2 release date.
However, it’s already announced that the Platinum Part 2 release date will be in January 2021, the Winter 2021 anime season.
Even with an “uninterrupted” run of an anime series it’s fairly common for the anime industry to have a small delay between consecutive cours. Assuming that each cour has 12 episodes, it’s possible anime fans may have to wait a week or two for the Platinum End Episode 13 release date.
