Developed by Greg Johnson and Craig Kyle, Netflix’s Pacific Rim: The Black is a Sci-Fi anime that further explores the world of Guillermo del Toro’s 2013 Pacific Rim film. The anime follows siblings Hayley and Taylor Travis, who lost their Jaeger pilot parents in childhood, and the remarkable boy they meet with mysterious powers. No doubt fans have been waiting for Pacific Rim: The Black Season 2 since the first season premiered last year. And now they have a date to look forward to.
What to expect from Pacific Rim: The Black Season 2?
At the end of the anime’s first season, Travis’ siblings and Boy run into Mei in Clayton City. In town they found Hunter Vertigo, their parents’ Jaeger. There was no trace of Ford or Brina. But they found a message in Hunter’s cockpit. The message was for everyone who came there and asked them to tell their children that they were doing what they could.
Meanwhile, the Copperhead Kaiju, who was chasing the siblings, showed up there. It urged the child to turn into a kaiju himself. Ultimately, Taylor and Mei fought the Kaiju by controlling Atlas. And it was eventually killed by Hayley using the remaining Hunter’s nuclear weapons.
When the series returns with Pacific Rim: The Black Season 2, the story continues after the events of the first season. One of the most pressing questions after the end of the first season is the actual origin of the Kaiju boy. According to Hayley and Taylor, he could very likely be the brainchild of the Precursors, an alien race. The first season of Pacific Rim: The Black ended with a mysterious hooded woman proclaiming the youngster the Kaiju messiah.
Meanwhile, the second season could also focus on the cult that considers Boy the Messiah. Pacific Rim: The Black Season 2 could also explain why Loa had a technological collapse while analyzing the Jaeger Horizon Bravo data. For now, Hayley and Taylor seem to have found a real mate in their Kaiju friend. However, it is uncertain whether he would rebel against his creators or turn against those who saved him.
When is Pacific Rim: The Black Season 2 coming?
The entire first season of the Sci-Fi anime debuted on streaming giant Netflix on March 4, 2021. On the other hand, there was no doubt as the first two seasons of the series were confirmed together. At an event, Elie Dekel, Executive Vice President of Brand Development at Legendary Entertainment, confirmed the show will run for two seasons in 2019. So it was certain that the anime would return with Pacific Rim: The Black Season 2.
According to some reports, the second season was already in the works by the time season one debuted on Netflix. The official release date for Pacific Rim: The Black Season 2 was revealed via a Tweet on March 30. The second season of the anime will premiere on Netflix on April 19, 2022.
Different types of Kaiju tried to seize control of the world in both Pacific Rim movies. They attacked wherever they could and overpowered the fighter pilots of the Pan Pacific Defense Corps. Jaeger flyers ended up eliminating the kaiju danger in the movies, despite the odds. On the other hand, the Kaiju in this Netflix series certainly managed to take over part of the world. The attack on Australia ultimately overloads the military. This caused them to pull everyone back and impose a power outage across the region.
