The original ‘Ghost in the Shell’ is known for its extremely inventive approach to the sci-fi genre. After the immense success of the first original film, director Kamiyama Kenji, along with the staff of Production I.G., returned with a whole new approach, new focus, and most of all, a new perspective to a full-fledged series that would carry the legacy of the film. The result of this was an equally—if not more—successful anime series which has now paved the way for a Netflix original. Considering the popularity of the anime, it seems very likely that Netflix is not giving up on this project anytime soon. So, yes, all those waiting for Ghost in the Shell Sac 2045 Season 2, we have good news for you.
Ghost in the Shell Sac 2045 Season 2 Release Date: When will it premiere?
‘Ghost in the Shell Sac 2045’ season 1 premiered on Netflix on April 23, 2020. Since it is a spin-off of an anime classic that premiered almost two decades ago, this new installment became extremely popular even before its release on Netflix. To further hype the series, even before the release of its first season, Netflix released a small clip of the first season. When it comes to season 2, although Netflix has made no official announcements, Production I.G. USA president, Maki Terashima-Furuta, had revealed in an interview that the anime will have two 12-episode seasons. You can check out the interview here.
Although an official release date has not been announced yet, considering Netflix’s release schedule for anime originals, we can expect ‘Ghost in the Shell Sac 2045’ Season 2 to release sometime in December 2020. However, because of the ongoing delays in productions because of Covid-19, it is possible that the second season may come out sometime in 2021. We’ll update it here in this section as soon as we hear any official news regarding it.
