A second season of anime series Made in Abyss has been announced, with a new trailer and poster now available. The season will be called Made in Abyss: The Golden City of the Scorching Sun.
Made in Abyss is an anime adaption of the manga with the same name. There are currently three movies and one season of the show released. The story follows Riko, an orphan girl. People go into a mysterious hole called the Abyss to explore and find artifacts and remnants of past civilizations.
Riko wants to become a legendary Cave-Raider, known as a “White Whistle,” like her mother was, and one day she discovers a robot boy within the Abyss who she names Reg. Believing her mother is at the bottom of the Abyss, Riko embarks on a journey with Reg to descend into the Abyss and find her. The trailer starts with “we all seek, desire and dream for the Golden City,” a ship comes across a “solitary island in an unnavigable patch of sea.” Riko says; “I want to go looking for it. The light that no else has found.”
No release date has yet been given, other than 2022. The trailer can be watched in full here:
