Netflix’s 7Seeds Makes A Return

by Sage Ashford

 

One of Netflix’s many original new anime projects, it seems 7 Seeds was popular enough to have nabbed a second season on air. Based on the manga by Yumi Tamura, the show takes place in a future where a meteorite struck Earth, changing the planet’s climate drastically.  The world government decides the best way for humanity to survive is by placing groups of healthy teenagers in cryonic sleep, with computers who will wake them up once humanity can exist in the environment again.

In this new environment, both flora and fauna have evolved and changed, with threats and dangers around every corner, making the people brought out of cryonic suspension stuck figuring out a way to survive in this new world.  Studio Gonzo remains in charge of the second season’s production, while Yukio Takahashi (Dog & Scissors) remains the director and Touko Machida (Allison & Lillia) continues working on series composition.

Considering the manga ran for the better part of two decades (from 2001 to 2017), there’s really no shortage of available material to adapt, so how long this series runs will depend on it’s popularity as well as how much money Netflix and Gonzo care to invest in it.

7Seeds Season 2 will begin in 2020.
