Made in Abyss: The Golden City of the Scorching Sun is coming this summer

Made in Abyss Second Season

The second season of Made in Abyss called Made in Abyss: The Golden City of the Scorching Sun will premiere this July as part of the Summer 2022 anime season.

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).

live-action film based on Made in Abyss was announced last year from Sony’s Columbia Pictures. In recent news, game developer Spike Chunsoft also announced an action RPG based on the franchise for release in 2022.
