The first spinoff is Detective Conan: Hannin no Hanzawa-san (The Culprit Hanzawa in English), which is a gag manga that follows the black-silhouetted “criminal” used in the main series to represent mystery culprits. It basically takes the long-used trope and turns it into an actual character. The Culprit Hanazawa debuted in 2017 and is still currently running with five volumes released.
The second adaption is Detective Conan: Zero no Nichijou (Zero’s Tea Time), which follows the daily life of the triple-agent and three-faced man Tooru Amuro, who lives three different lives as a police officer, Black Organization member, and a café worker. Zero’s Tea Time was introduced in 2018, with new chapters only releasing when the main Detective Conan series was on hiatus.

A release window has yet to be announced, along with which studios will be handling the animation. The two new shows join another spin-off titled Wild Police Story, which had an anime adaption announced back in August.
Detective Conan is one of the longest-running manga and anime series out there, with the show first debuting in January 1996. In 2021, the series topped 1000 episodes as well as 1000 chapters of the manga, a feat only shared by the likes of One Piece.
