The first Kemono Friends stage play was performed at the same venue from June 14 to 18, 2017. After its
well-received sold-out first run, its rerun was held at AiiA 2.5 Theater Tokyo from January 13 to 21, 2018.
All of the TV anime voice cast members of its two main units, the three of Doubutsu Biscuits and the five
of PPP, portrayed their characters on the stage as well.
While no cast members of the second play are currently confirmed, the play’s official site suggests it will
tell a new story with new additional “Friends” characters. The first play’s Daiki Murakami (Cute High Earth
Defense Club Love! Katsugeki!) is again attached to write and direct.
