Pacific Rim: The Black Season 2 confirmed by Netflix

Last Updated on July 30, 2021

Last month, the Netflix streaming service expanded the franchise that began with Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim (watch it HERE) and continued with Steven S. DeKnight's Pacific Rim: Uprising (watch that one HERE) by releasing an anime show called Pacific Rim: The Black. All seven episodes of Pacific Rim: The Black's first season have been available to watch on Netflix since March 4th, and now it has been confirmed that a second season is on the way.

A release date for season 2 has not been revealed.

From Legendary Entertainment, Polygon Pictures, and showrunners Craig Kyle and Greg Johnson, the anime centers on 

two siblings – an idealistic teenage boy and his naïve younger sister – who are forced to pilot an abandoned Jaeger across a hostile landscape in a desperate attempt to find their missing parents.

Here's another synopsis: 

Long ago, humanity defeated the Kaiju. Now, they’re evacuating Australia. Join a pair of siblings and their battered, long-abandoned Jaegar as they battle across a continent of danger.

I haven't watched any of Pacific Rim: The Black yet, but I will watch it at some point.
