For “Pacific Rim” fans, “Pacific Rim: The Black” came as a blessing. Taking place in the same cinematic universe as its movie prequels, this anime series follows the lives of two siblings in a Kaiju run Australia. The series follows the Travises as they try to find their parents and survive using a Jaeger named Atlas. Now, fans have even more of a reason to be happy. Netflix has announced that the series is renewed for a second season. Fans are rightfully excited for the sequel, as the end of the first season left many with more questions than answers. Here’s what we know about the upcoming “Pacific Rim: the Black: Season 2” so far.
Release Date: Pacific Rim: The Black
Barely a few days have passed since the first season was released. However, that is no reason to not hope for more. Netflix has already the next season of this series. From what we know so far, “Pacific Rim: the Black” season 2 will probably release in 2022. The schedule they keep with is usually with a one-year difference, so it is not too far fetched to assume it will release and premiere on Netflix in March 2022, if not earlier.
