At the Netflix Festival Japan 2021 event, Netflix announced that Ghost in the Shell: SAC_2045 Season 2 will release sometime in 2022.
The confirmation of the SAC_2045 season 2 is good news for fans of the series given that season 1 ended on a bit of a cliffhanger. Though right now, there’s no word yet on a specific release date.
In case you’re unfamiliar, Ghost in the Shell: SAC_2045 is a 3DCG anime series that’s set after the events of the Ghost in the Shell: Standalone Complex series. This show is created by Production I.G and Sola Digital Arts, with the series being directed by Kenji Kamiyama and Shinji Aramaki.
The series’ premise is described as:
“In 2045, the world has been thrown into a state of systematic “sustainable war,” but the threat of human extinction at the hands of AI hasn’t yet pervaded the public consciousness. Former members of Public Security Section 9, including full-body cyborg Major Motoko Kusanagi, are working as hired mercenaries when mysterious beings known as “post humans” begin to emerge. The world’s superpowers are trying to come to grips with the threat, and so Section 9 is reorganized.”
