The second season of the anime, Ultraman, will be arriving on Netflix in 2022. Season 1 was dropped in April 2019, and it was put up in renewal in 2019 itself. However, for this long span, nothing has made it to the news, until now, as Netflix confirmed its arrival for Spring next year. The announcement was made for the anime Ultraman kickoff event online on August 24, 2021; after a two-year-long wait, the streamer finally dropped the hint of its release.
The event was also held in Tokyo, in person, featuring a reading play and talk show by the cast of the show. Ryouhei Kimura, who voices the lead cast, thanked the audience for their patience and revealed that they are soon starting with Ultraman season 2. Now that the news of its arrival is confirmed, you should keep track of some important details of Ultraman season 2.
Speculations for Ultraman season 2
The anime Ultraman is based on manga bearing the same name. It is a manga sequel to the 1966 TV show, but the events take place decades later when Earth did not have Giant of Light anymore. Shin Hayata’s son, Shinjiro, gains superhuman abilities in his genes because of his father’s connection to Ultraman. After his father’s retirement, Shinjiro dons the futuristic armored suits, which take its inspiration from Ultraman, from battling against the alien invasion.
The second season obviously seemed to be inevitable with the culmination of season 1. Ultra “brothers” Shinjiro, Seji, and Dan fight together as they defeat Ace Killer, but the end game of Bemular has not made its entire reveal yet. Agent Adad and Star Cluster Council’s plan also loom towards the ending. Various plot threads hang loosely, which requires another season to tie it together.
Facts and Plot Reveal So Far For Ultraman Season 2
The recent announcement of the season 2 launch window was accompanied by the reveal of live-action Ace Suits for the two lead characters of the anime. In July 2020, Netflix had also released a teaser video, which revealed the addition of a new cast member for Kotaro Higashi or Ultraman Taro, after Tatsuhisa Suzuki’s affair scandal made it to the news. However, a replacement has not been finalized publicly yet.
The new teaser art, which was released recently, reveals, “Ultra 6 Brothers finally reunite,” and teases that Ace, Seven, Taro, Jack, and Zoffy will be joining Ultraman once again. It was revealed on September 25, during the TUDUM event by Netflix.
According to the plot details for season 2, Shinjiro will be battling aliens to become the new generation’s hero, clad in a metallic-powered suit. The coming season will feature his comrades, such as Ace and Seven, as the Ultra 6 Brothers reunite to fight against Adad or Ace Killer.
When Will Ultraman Season 2 Release?
Kenji Kamiyana, who is directing the second season of Ultraman, said during the event that the team is sorry for the delay, and now, finally, they are entering into production. It was originally speculated to release in 2021, but after a long wait, Netflix finally allotted it a release schedule for Spring 2022. An exact premiere date is not available yet.
The coming season will be featuring the comeback of the six “Ultra Brothers.” Ultraman season 2 will be available for streaming on Netflix in Spring 2022.
