Actas and Studio 3Hz produced it, aired it from July 9 to September 24, 2017, with 12 episodes. There are some exciting names on the staff and cast list too. Masaki Tachibana acted as the director while Ichiro Okouchi (Koutetsujou no Kabaneri, Code Geass) wrote the script and Kohaku Kuroboshi (Kino no Tabi: The Beautiful World) drew the original character design. Finally, there is Yuki Kajiura (Demon Slayer), who composed the music.
The cast included Ayaka Imamura (Absolute Duo), Akira Sekine (Tanaka-kun is Always Listless), You Taichi (Grimoire of Zero), Akari Kageyama (Himouto! Umaru-chan), and Nozomi Furuki (High School Fleet).

Will there be Princess Principal Season 2?
Good news, guys! Actas is already confirmed that we will get the Princess Principal Season 2, kind of. Unfortunately, we don't get an anime television series, but we will have a six-part sequel movie—two-part of the movies aired this year.
The first film, titled Princess Principal: Crown Handler, premiered on February 11, 2021. Initially, it was slated to be released on April 10, 2020, but postponed due to the pandemic. The second was then released on September 23, 2021.
There were also changes in the cast and the staff. Noboru Kimura replaced Ichiro Okouchi, and Actas is now the sole studio animation that produced the films. Ayaka Imamura, who played for one of the main characters, was also replaced by Koga Aoi (Kaguya-sama) due to her retirement in the voice actress industry.
The movies are good news for the fans that have been waiting for Princess Principal Season 2. However, if you prefer the television series format, then there is still no luck for you. So for now, you can only enjoy the two movies.
