The second season of dark fantasy adventure anime Made in Abyss has been announced for sometime in 2022.
Made in Abyss is a fantasy series that initially follows a young girl named Riko and a young robot boy named Reg, as they descend into the eponymous “Abyss.” The abyss is a strange and magical place, laden with artifacts and monsters. But a curse awaits those who venture into its deeper regions.
The second season, which is subtitled The Golden City of the Scorching Sun, will feature the events of the prequel Ganja arc of the manga. The Ganja are outcasts, seeking to find The Golden City of the Abyss. Their quest will push them to their extremes to survive.

In addition, Sentai Filmworks have acquired the distribution rights for the second season. They are recently known for licensing the anime series Redo of Healer, and making it available on their proprietary streaming service HIDIVE.
Sentai Filmworks has announced their plan to distribute the series for overseas audiences with some notable exceptions. While the company has concrete plans to release the series in North America; they were unable to acquire the rights for distribution in “Asia, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and MENA” (Middle East and North Africa).
