Ultraman is a Japanese anime web series. It is the remake of the 2011 manga of the same name. The Ultra Series, which is also known as Ultraman, is a collective name for all media produced by Tsuburaya Productions. It started as Japanese tokusatsu (live-action) sci-fi series aired way back in the 1960s. Netflix decided to adapt the manga and launch as its own original, which premiered on April 1, 2019, and became an instant hit.
Renewal Status Of The Second Season!
Back in June 2019, Netflix announced that the anime series would return for the second season. They released this news through various social media platforms. The decision to renew the show was a no-brainer for Netflix as the show was making quite the headlines. The Ultra Franchise was already famous since the 60s and had influenced numerous shows, including Power Rangers. References to Ultraman are quite popular in Japanese pop culture. It is similar to the reference of Superman in the US culture. So, the renewal for the second season was kind of inevitable.
Ultraman Season 2: Plot Details!
The story of the inaugural season is set several years after the original show. The threat from aliens and monsters has receded, and Ultraman has decreased to everyone’s memory, where he is just recognized as a legendary ‘Giant of Light.’ However, Shinjiro discovers his father’s true identity and also learned that he also carries the first factor that wants him to step up and consume the hero’s mantle.
