Pacific Rim anime coming to Netflix in 2020 and 2 seasons confirmed

Legendary Entertainment has revealed that the Pacific Rim animated series will launch on Netflix in 2020. Also, they’ve already signed for 2 seasons.

The highly anticipated anime is just one of 5 new anime series coming to Netflix. As the streaming giant is trying to widen their variety of the animated genres.

First original Guillermo Del Toro movie, released in 2013, was set in the near future. In which humans designed giant-sized robots or “Jaeger”, to fight the Kaiju invading the world through a spot in the Pacific Ocean. A sequel, Pacific Rim Uprising, was released later.

The Pacific Rim animated series will arrive on Netflix next year.

In addition and originally, Del Toro planned on making a TV show to bridge the gap between the two movies. But after that, he left this franchise.

Pacific Rim will be produced by Legendary in partnership with Tokyo’s Polygon Pictures. However, the series will tell the story of two siblings who pilot an abandoned “Jaeger mech” in an attempt to find their missing parents. Check out first film trailer below.

Here’s the official synopsis for Pacific Rim 2013:

“When monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives. And consume humanity’s resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes-a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi) – who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind’s last hope against the mounting apocalypse.”
