In the winter of 2019, a completely twisted and unexpected anime series titled The Promised Neverland premiered and drew fans in with its creepy visuals and dark story. Soon after the first season ended, they revealed that a second season was in production. What they failed to mention at the time though was when exactly we would see that second season.
In an announcement made on December 20th, it was finally revealed that the second season will premiere on the Noitamina block starting in October 2020. Sadly we didn’t get a trailer or promotional video to go with it but at this point, I think many of us are willing to take whatever we can get.
Originally a shonen manga series written by Kaiu Shirai and illustrated by Posuka Demizu which launched in Weekly Shonen Jump in August 2016, The Promised Neverland is a series that you won’t see coming due to its calm introduction which suddenly turns dark at a moment’s notice. The series has been collected in sixteen volumes thus far. The manga series is licensed for an English release by Viz Media. The anime was animated by studio Cloverworks and featured Mamoru Kanbe as director with Toshiya Ono handling series composition.
Crunchyroll and Funimation both simulcast the series as it aired. Crunchyroll describes the series as:
The one adored as the mother is not the real parent. The people living here together are not actual siblings. The Gracefield House is where orphaned children live. An irreplaceable home where 38 siblings and Mom live happy lives, even with no blood relations. However, their everyday life suddenly came to an abrupt end one day…
The good news is that if you haven’t watched this series, it is still available to stream and you have ten months to get through it before the second season hits the airwaves.
