Pacific Rim: The Black Announces Final Season’s Premiere Date with First Look

Netflix revealed new details and the first images from Pacific Rim: The Black's second season.

The streaming company announced that the animated series will kick off its final season on April 19. The new season is once again being produced by Legendary Television and animation studio Polygon Pictures, which previously worked on the Big Hero 6 animated series and another Netflix exclusive show, Transformers: War for Cybertron Trilogy. Netflix also shared the first images from The Black's encore season, which show the siblings Taylor and Hayley piloting their makeshift Jaeger, the villainous Sisters of the Kaiju, and the young human/kaiju hybrid that both sides are fighting over.

Netflix describes the second season as:

In the epic series conclusion of Pacific Rim: The Black (S2), the journey is far from over. Our brave siblings Taylor and Hayley still hope to reach the safety of Sydney aboard Atlas Destroyer, the scaled-down training Jaeger left behind when Australia was evacuated. With teenage assassin Mei and the mysterious human/kaiju hybrid bOy joining Taylor and Hayley, this makeshift family must cross a dangerous territory controlled by the bloodthirsty cult Sisters of the Kaiju. These zealots, led by the enigmatic High Priestess, are convinced that bOy is their long-awaited Messiah and will stop at nothing to indoctrinate him into their dark circle – something Hayley would sacrifice everything to prevent.

Pacific Rim: The Black was created by Marvel Comics' Craig Kyle (Thor: Ragnarok) and Greg Johnson (X-Men: Evolution) and originally debuted in 2021. The series is set in the same universe as Guillero del Toro's Pacific Rim movies, which see humanity besieged by the arrival of giant monsters known as kaiju, who are being sent to Earth by an alien race through the use of an inter-dimensional portal located deep within the Pacific Ocean. In order to battle these beasts, humanity builds titans of their own in the form of the Jaegers, towering humanoid robots that require the brainpower of two perfectly synced pilots in order to work.

The series stars American Vandal's Calum Worthy as Taylor and The Walking Dead: The Final Season's Gideon Adlon as Hayley. The show also features the talents of veteran voice actors Erica Lindbeck, who previously played the role of Cassie Cage in Mortal Kombat 11 and starred in  Insomniac's 2018 Spider-Man video game, and Benjamin Diskin, who portrayed Haida in the English dub of Aggretsuko and played multiple roles in Naruto Shippuden.

The second season of the show won't be the only CG-animated kaiju-bashing series to land on Netflix in April: the streaming giant previously announced the next season of its popular Ultraman anime will premiere on April 14. The six-episode continuation will introduce a new team of Ultramen to the series, recreating the Six Ultra Brothers team-up from the classic series.
