Till Netflix releases the remaining six episodes we received’t know if a second season can be coming. With a lot supply materials to play with, there’s definitely greater than sufficient to select from to create extra seasons.
Sometimes Netflix would categorize the primary half of a season as ‘half one’ however as Netflix has listed the primary set of episodes as season one, this has left some confused. Us included. The probabilities are Netflix will simply launch the remaining episodes and categorize them as season one as a substitute of season two.

Knights of the Zodiac: Saint Seiya Season 2 Launch Date
As we’ve acknowledged above it’s unclear how Netflix can be defining the subsequent six episodes. The lacking episodes are anticipated to launch later this yr however how Netflix will outline them continues to be a thriller. Logically it could be higher for Netflix to acknowledge these episodes because the second half of the primary season.
You received’t have the ability to watch episodes anyplace aside from Netflix. Not like some anime sequence, this iteration of Knights of the Zodiac is unique to Netflix and aren’t airing episodes on regional tv networks in Japan.
Launch date within the Fall is likeliest. We’d be very stunned to see the sequence pushed again so far as Winter.
If Netflix renews the sequence for one more string of twelve episodes we wouldn’t anticipate to see that season launch till late 2020 or early 2021.
