Netflix’s Pacific Rim: The Black has just been renewed for season 2. This mature animated streaming collection relies on the live-action films Pacific Rim and Pacific Rim: Uprising. The first film was directed by Guillermo Del Toro and starred huge actors like Charlie Hunnam and Idris Elba. The world of Pacific Rim is best described as a futuristic, science-fiction dystopia, and in this universe, the Earth is at war with giant sea monsters known as the kaiju. These beings emerged out of an interdimensional portal on the base of the Pacific Ocean. To fight the creatures, humans make the Jaegers, that is giant battle bots.
Thus far, no brand new live-action Pacific Rim movies have been announced however the Netflix revived spin-off series was greenlit in 2018. Pacific Rim: The Black does a fantastic job of continuing where the live-action films leave off. The very first season explored a war-ravaged Australia teeming with gigantic monsters that need to be defeated. The show follows two teenaged sisters (Taylor and Hayley Travis) that need to survive this dangerous world as they search for their parents who disappeared after heading off into battle. Pacific Rim: The Black season 1 only surfaced on Netflix this season, and there are exciting news on season 2.
According to the Pacific Rim Twitter page, Pacific Rim: The Dark has been renewed for season 2. The first promotional picture for Pacific Rim: The Black season 2 reveals both Taylor and Hayley facing off against the kaiju with their Jaeger called the Atlas Destroyer standing. This image promises action and adventure awaiting the new season.

The first season ends with Hayley and Taylor discovering the Hunter Vertigo along with discovering Mei’s dark backstory. However, little is known concerning the real identity of this Kaiju boy. Hayley and Taylor think that he could be part of the alien race called the Precursors. This is one question that may well get addressed at another season. The season 1 finale also finishes with a mysterious girl declaring the puzzled boy would be the Kaiju Messiah. This will almost certainly be the assumption of Pacific Rim: The Black season 2 as they handle each one of these mysteries.
In case Pacific Rim: The Black season 2 is like season 1 then audiences should be thrilled to have more episodes. There are so many rich plot factors to flesh out and mysteries to uncover. As of this moment, there are not any particular date for the season 2 premiere, but it is going to likely not be coming out before next year. Until then, keep watching for updates on this exciting new show.
