A second season for Netflix's Ultraman was announced at the 2019 Annecy International Animated Film Festival in France. Production I.G and Sola Digital Arts remain the studios behind the anime.

Kenji Kamiyama and Shinji Aramaki will return to direct the second season. Both released statements via the anime's official website.

"I am glad to hear that the motion capture 3DCG animation ULTRAMAN is loved by many people around the world. Now I am certain that interesting stories can be told with this new expressive style. I will use the same method in season 2."

"We enjoyed every part of making ULTRAMAN, even including the difficulties. Now I am very glad to be able to continue making season 2. I will try my best to surpass everyone's expectations after season 1."

Ultraman premiered in Tokyo on March 31 and debuted worldwide on Netflix on April 1. The 3DCG anime is an adaptation of Eichi Shimizu and Tomohiro Shimoguchi's manga of the same name. It was first serialized in the inaugural edition of Shogakukan's monthly Hero's magazine in November 2011 and has 13 individual volumes in print. The latest was released on March 5 of this year.

I quite enjoyed the first season, so I'm happy season 2 is announced. I just wonder when it'll come. They are currently working on new GitS and after that they have Blade Runner anime. So it will probably be few years until this comes out. I don't see it coming until at least second half of 2021.
