It would be a good idea to recap some of the major plot points in season 1 (spoilers ahead!) before watching made in abyss season 2. In the city of Orth, Riko, a 12-year-old, finds a robot that she names Reg. Beyond the borders of their island lies the seemingly infinite abyss, which comprises artefacts. The abyss also curses anyone who exits it, with anyone going deeper than level 5 unable to survive the severity of the curse upon their return.
Made In Abyss Season 1 Recap
After Riko learns about her past from Jiruo and how her mother Lyza had used a rare relic known as the Curse-repelling vessel to return Riko to the safety of the surface, following which Lyza had returned to the abyss in search of a legendary relic known as the Unheard Bell. After receiving Lyza’s White Whistle, Riko is allowed to see a document that reveals a sketch of Reg and a note from her mother, Lyza, saying that she awaits Riko at the bottom of the abyss.
Riko and Reg receive a map from Shiggy, which details all the six known layers within the abyss.
Upon entering the abyss, the duo eventually crosses paths with the elite cave raiders known as the White Whistle, as well as Ozen, a jaded adventurer who keeps testing Riko and Reg’s limits. We eventually learn that Riko was still born and was revived in the heart of the abyss. Ozen trades Lyza’s White Whistle from Riko and lends them Blue Whistles. Here, the duo meets Marulk, who they quickly befriend and who had become a Blue Whistle at a young age, as he was a direct apprentice of Ozen. The latter eventually reveals that Lyza is dead and that her letter was recovered from her grave in the fourth layer, and she adds that the note was not handwritten by Lyza. Riko also spots the Curse-Repelling Bessel inside Ozen’s private chamber. Eventually, after a fallout with Ozen, they continue their descent downwards into the abyss
Episode 10 is ruthless, with Nanachi arriving just in time to save Riko from bleeding to death from the curse of the abyss. In the season finale, Reg is forced to kill Mitty to release her from her shell, and the trio continues their journey downward into the abyss to fin Lyza. Bondrewd notices that Mitty’s life signature had disappeared and realizes that Nanachi had found a way to kill her.

Another thing to note is that the second season will pick up after the events of the anime film, Made in Abyss: Dawn of the Deep Soul. The show sticks closely to the made in abyss manga, and the first season has covered the first five volumes from the same with very few changes.
