Pacific Rim reveal Black has completely disappeared from Netflix’s radar: Black will return for a second season in April 2022. Here’s everything we know at the moment.
Pacific Rim: Black is a Netflix original animated television series created by Greg Johnson and Craig Kyle and based on the Pacific Rim films. Polygon Pictures is the animation studio behind the series that Netflix subscribers should know about. Polygon is responsible for producing the anime trilogy Godzilla, Knights of Sidonia and Drifting Dragons.
Pacific Rim: Black Season 2: Netflix Renewal Status
Official Netflix Renewal Status: Renewed (Last updated: March 10, 2021)
Anime fans will be happy to know that Pacific Rim: Black has already been renewed for a second season. When it was announced that an anime adaptation of Pacific Rim was in development, two seasons were planned.
At the time of this writing, Pacific Rim: Black has been available to stream on Netflix for just under a week, but that’s already taking its toll.
In its short streaming time, “Pacific Rim: Black” reached the top 10 in 26 different regions, including the US. If the series hadn’t already been renewed, its performances would undoubtedly demand a second season.
What can we expect from Pacific Rim: Black Season 2
Will Taylor and Hailey find their parents?
Having stumbled upon Hunter, a Jaeger piloted by their parents, Tyler and Hayley now hope to find them soon. No bodies were found among the wreckage, instead a video message to their parents was left. They were forced to flee as their nukes jammed and there was no other way to destroy the kaiju they were fighting.
Since Sydney is the only clue to their whereabouts, Taylor and Hayley will continue their journey to the coastal city in hopes of being reunited with their parents.
What is the Mystery Boy?
The fight was a mystery to Taylor and Hayley, and during the first season it proved to be very special. Able to shoot unharmed and communicate with other kaiju, part of the mystery was removed when it was revealed that Boy was actually a kaiju.
He turned into one of these beings while protecting Hayley, implying that the Forerunners could create Kaiju to look like humans and hide them in plain sight.
Boy is a valuable friend to Taylor and Hayley, but also a dangerous friend. Boy, can he think for himself? Or will he have to follow the Predecessor’s orders if he gets them? So far, he has shown that he can act on his own.
Do the sisters have plans for Boy?
Shane hinted at the sisters earlier this season, but we finally got to see them for the first time at the end of the first season.
The mysterious cult is related to kaiju and seems to worship alien beings. They set their sights on Boy, who is referred to as the “Kaiju Messiah”. It is likely that their intentions are to kidnap him and take over as leader of their cult. Their greatest ambition is to use Boya to wipe out the rest of humanity.
Can May get revenge on Shane?
Shane’s threat is still looming, and Mae will want revenge on him. Learning that Shane had taken her from her parents as a child and altered her memories to make her believe he was her savior was devastating. After Joel’s death, May has every reason to take revenge on him.
We don’t currently know Shane’s whereabouts, but one thing’s for sure, Mei will find him one day and avenge all the hardship he caused her.
