Delvers rejoice, as a brand-new trailer for Season 2 of Made in Abyss has been revealed.
The preview for the next season begins with a new group of adventurers, who are searching for a Golden City. The trailer introduces four new characters to the series: Vueko, Belaf, Wazukyan, and Faputa. The final scene of the trailer is a short clip of the series' original trio of Riko, Reg and Nanachi, who are enjoying a light-hearted break from their journey. The second season of the show will be entitled Made in Abyss: The Golden City of the Scorching Sun and is a direct sequel to the series’ third movie, Made in Abyss: Dawn of the Deep Soul. Animation studio Kinema Citrus (Rising of the Shield Hero, Barakamon) will once again handle production of the series, which is currently scheduled for a 2022 premiere window.
The story follows Riko, an orphaned girl who lives in a town built around a gargantuan, mysterious pit known as The Abyss. The massive chasm attracts many adventurers, known as Delvers, who explore The Abyss' depths in the hopes of finding artifacts and treasure left behind by an ancient civilization. After receiving a letter from her mother, who disappeared into The Abyss years earlier and was presumed to be dead, Riko sets off on a journey to reach the bottom of the Abyss and find her family.
The original Made in Abyss manga was created by Tsukushi Akihito and was originally published on Takeshobo’s Web Comic Gamma. It was then adapted into a 13-episode anime in 2017, which was followed up by two compilation films that retold the events of the series in 2019, and an all-new sequel film released in 2020. Fans and critics have praised the show for its high-quality animation and stellar soundtrack, with both elements being cited as crucial to conveying the beauty and the horror that is found within the titular Abyss.
The first season of Made in Abyss is available for streaming on Netflix, Prime Video and HiDive. The three theatrical releases in the series, Made in Abyss: Journey’s Dawn, Made in Abyss: Wandering Twilight and Made in Abyss the Movie: Dawn of the Deep Soul are also available exclusively on HiDive.
