It has been almost two years since fans last saw Netflix’s Ultraman Reboot. Since April 2019, the viewers have been wondering when Ultraman Season 2 will arrive. The demand for the second season has been increasing with each passing month. And this is because the finale episode left us with a cliffhanger. Fortunately, Ultraman Season 2 Kickoff Event took place a few days ago, and it revealed crucial information about its release. So, when is the new season coming out? Is the production delayed? Here is all you need to know about the release of Ultraman Season 2.
The Ultraman franchise began with its first anime television series in 1966. Writer and director Eiji Tsuburaya is the original creator of the franchise. The Ultraman has seen countless reboots, spin-offs, and remakes since the initial release. In the same chain, Netflix released its own reboot version in 2019. Production I.G. and Sola Digital Arts worked on the animation of the show. Kenji Kamiyama and Shinji Aramaki were the directors of the first season. Now, it will be interesting to see what this duo brings to floors in the second installment.
Ultraman Season 2: Renewal & Production Status
The first season of Ultraman was well-received by fans and critics alike. Looking at the vast plethora of original source material, it was not a tough job for Netflix to renew the sequel. And thus, the season was renewed at the 2019 Annecy International Animated Film Festival. Now that the release date has already been announced, it looks like the anime is in the last stages of production. Production I.G and Sola Digital Arts are done with most of the animation work. Only the last bit of refining work remains in the production process. Thus, it is only a matter of time before a new trailer of Ultraman Season 2 hits the internet.
The last season of Ultraman said goodbye to the fans in April 2019. The debut season narrated the story of the original Ultraman Shin Hayata. But the superhero has now grown weary of the job. It turns out that Shinjiro Hayata, Shin’s son, has acquired the superpowers of his father. He eventually becomes Ultraman and takes up the job of saving the people from alien invasions. But things escalated quickly in the previous season when Shinjiro went rogue and turned against his own father. The last episode left the fans with a jaw-dropping cliffhanger as Shin and Seiji take a missile attack on themselves.
In Ultraman Season 2, fans will get to see Shinjiro in the classic Ultraman suit. The new-age hero will fight the incoming aliens and save humanity just like his father. But the season will first address the cliffhanger that was left in the finale episode. Fans will get to know if Seiji survived the alien attack or not. Thus, the sequel is going to be an action-packed edition much like the debut season. In the event, the panel also released a brand-new trailer that introduces Shinjiro’s new Ace Suit in live-action.
