Facts shows that there will never be a release date for season 2 of HOTD.

The reason behind it is the death of author, but the remaining manga material can be used for the making of season 2.

As series will not get proper ending so it is not worth it to work on such series, there are a lot more projects that are needed to be focused.

As the series based upon ecchi elements and is more than 10 years old, ecchi elements is not worthy to sell now.
