The last episode of Boruto anime is also the conclusion of Boruto Part 1. The second season will adapt Boruto Part 2, titled Boruto Two Blue Vortex.

Boruto Season 2 may take a long time to come but this also gives fans enough time to catch up with the Naruto and Boruto universe. There are plenty to discover, like who is stronger between Boruto vs. Kawaki, what happened to Naruto during the timeskip, and how Kurama comes back in Boruto.
