To the fans of the Netflix original animated series, Pacific Rim: The Black, who have been waiting for a new season, the wait is coming to an end. Netflix announced that Season 2 will be dropping on their platform on Tuesday, April 19, 2022, by dropping a new trailer on their official YouTube page.
Season 1 of Pacific Rim: The Black Follows an alternate version of the events of Pacific Rim Uprising, and tackles the return of the Kaijus and their invasion of Australia. Although the continent and its people built Jaegers, they failed to push back the Kaijus and abandoned their homes. Five years later, The Travis siblings, Taylor and Hayley Travis find an abandoned Jaeger, The Atlas Destroyer, and set out to find their parents who left them to fight in the war to take back humanity.

Pacific Rim: The Black is the continuation of the Pacific Rim franchise that started back in 2013. The original Pacific Rim tells the story of the invasion of the Kaijus, whose attacks on the coastal cities promote humanity to build giant fighting robots called Jaegers to take the west coast back. After the death of his brother, Raleigh Becket retires from combat only to be brought back in by Marshal Stacker Pentecost and the Jaeger restoration program when they discover a way to close the portal the Kaijus are coming out of.
Pacific Rim: Uprising, is the 2018 sequel that takes place ten years after the events of the first movie. Jake Pentecost, son of Stacker Pentecost from the first movie, is brought into the Pan-Pacific Defense Corps (PPDC) to avoid jail time and to shut down the threat of the Shao Corporation mass-producing Jaeger Drones. The issue gets put to the side when a rogue Jaeger kills Jake’s adoptive sister Mako and it is revealed that the Precursors have created Kaijus that can take the shape of humans.
I must say that I am not the biggest fan of Pacific Rim as movies, however watching the first season of Pacific Rim: The Black has made me want to go back and take a look at the films again to gear up for Season 2. The first season did a great job expanding the world of Pacific Rim and further developing the Precursors and their involvement in creating the Kaijus. The trailer for Season 2 will definitely peak one’s interest, whether you are a fan of the franchise or if you are a fan of giant fighting robots in general.

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 by 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.
