Sunrise-produced anime adaptation of the action role-playing game of Bandai Namco surely had a great run in the 2021 Summer Season slate and it has gathered fans, both for the show and the game, establishing a solid base for it. As the show is about to be done in a few weeks, will there be a season 2 of Scarlet Nexus? Here is what we expect to happen after the end of the first run.

While most anime shows are from manga series, light novels, or even originals, Scarlet Nexus is a game of Bandai Namco that could be played through PC, Xbox One, Xbox X/S, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5. Just a few days after the release of the game, an anime series adaptation of it, produced by Sunrise, made its debut.

Scarlet Nexus follows the story of an alternate future where humanity found a way to develop technology and made a society based on the different substances which could be found in the human brain, giving people extrasensory abilities. An organization was formed, the Other Suppression Force (OSF), to protect humanity from the mindless mutants from Extinction Belt, and they recruit members having supernatural abilities to do this.

The series is directed by Hiroyuki Nishimura, written by Yōichi Katō, Toshizo Nemoto, and Akiko Inoue, characters designed by Nishimura and Yuji Ito, music composed by Hironori Anazawa. It first made an appearance on television on July 1, 2021, and it has 12 episodes to be released every week.

Scarlet Nexus gets new episodes every week on Funimation where its premium access subscribers paying $5.99 a month or $59.99 a year could get first dibs of the episodes before being released for free. In Asia, it is licensed by Medialink and Madman Entertainment. Recently, an English dubbed cast has been revealed and the show pushed through with such a version.

To date, there has been no confirmation yet from the producers or anyone related to the series as to whether there would be a Season 2 for Scarlet Nexus and it will still be reliant on the viewer reception of the show, which is doing great so far. If that continues, then, there is a good chance that there would be a second run for the show. (This article would be updated once there would be any news as regards this matter.)
