Will there be a second season of Pacific Rim: The Black?
The good news is that Netflix has already renewed the anime for a second season. Anime managed to make it to the Netflix TOP10 in 10’s of countries. Perhaps this success was predicted before because the anime had already been ordered for two seasons. The anime’s first season was very short for all audiences.

The anime was first announced in November 2018 and then announced to be released in 2020. However, it was delayed to 2021. The pandemic may also have an effect on this. However, since the second season of the anime has been in the plan for years, the studio will not waste time on this matter.
