Pitch Black II was a Mountain Dew flavor released for a limited time during the Halloween season in 2005. It was the sequel to 2004's grape-flavored Pitch Black. Its tagline was "A blast of grape flavor with a sour bite with other natural flavors."


Pitch Black II used the exact same dark purple, grape-flavored formula as the original Pitch Black, but with a "sour bite" added. Many describe it as tasting like candy, adding to its Halloween theme.

As of February 4th, 2020, there are no plans to bring back Pitch Black II.


  • Pitch Black II was one of six grape Mountain Dew flavors. (See "Related Flavors" in the infobox above).
  • Pitch Black II was the only sequel to a soda that Mountain Dew has ever made.
  • The Creature From The Black Lagoon or "Gillman" was somewhat of a mascot for Pitch Black & Pitch Black II as it appeared in a number of advert pieces holding the soda.
  • This flavor was the second Halloween themed flavor, the first being Pitch Black, and the third being VooDEW.
