Anime Expo will host an advance screening of the second season's first two episodes (after screening the first season's first episode) with cast member Yurie Igoma (Ruby Hoshino) and producer Shimpei Yamash*ta at the Los Angeles Convention Center on July 6.

The second season's story will focus on a 2.5D stage play titled "Tokyo Blade." In the story, the play is an adaptation of a manga.

HIDIVE previously confirmed at Anime Expo 2023 that it will stream the second season.

The first television anime of Aka Akasaka and Mengo Yokoyari's Oshi no Ko manga premiered in Japan in April 2023 with a 90-minute first episode. HIDIVE streamed the anime as it aired in Japan, and it is also streaming an English dub. The company stated that the anime became the streaming service's "#1 series launch in the streamer's history."

Daisuke Hiramaki (Selection Project) and Chao Nekotomi (Love is Like a co*cktail) directed the first season at Doga Kobo. Jin Tanaka (The Misfit of Demon King Academy) handled the series scripts. Kanna Hirayama (Rent-A-Girlfriend) designed the characters. YOASOBI performed the opening theme song "Idol." Queen Bee performed the ending theme song "Mephisto."

Akasaka (Kaguya-sama: Love is War) and Yokoyari (Scum's Wish) launched the manga in Shueisha's Weekly Young Jump magazine in April 2020. Shueisha's MANGA Plus service is releasing the manga in English digitally. The manga started its final arc on June 27.

Yen Press licensed the manga, and it describes the story:

Gorou is a gynecologist and idol fan who's in shock after his favorite star, Ai, announces an impromptu hiatus. Little does Gorou realize that he's about to forge a bond with her that defies all common sense! Lies are an idol's greatest weapon in this outrageous manga from Aka Akasaka (Kaguya-sama: Love is War) and Mengo Yokoyari (Scum's Wish).

The manga won first place in the seventh "Next Manga Awards" (Tsugi ni Kuru Manga Taishō) in 2021, and also won in the Best General Manga category in the 46th annual Kodansha Manga awards in 2022. The series was nominated for the 26th Annual Tezuka Osamu Cultural Prize in 2022, and has also been nominated for the 14th and 15th Manga Taisho Awards. The manga ranked at #7 on the top 20 list of manga for male readers in the 2022 edition of Takarajimasha's Kono Manga ga Sugoi! (This Manga Is Amazing!) guidebook. The manga has over 3 million copies in circulation.
