Tsutomu Nihei created a manga called “Knights of Sidonia” and later an anime series was created out of it. Polygon Pictures produced the anime television series and it was directed by KobunShizuno. SadayukiMurai wrote the scripts and Yuki Moriyama did the character designs. It is one of the original Netflix series which also became one of the most popular anime shows of all time. The first series was released on the 4th of July 2014. And the next season aired on 10th April 2015. But since then there has been no trace of season 3. Fans have been waiting for almost five long years.
What is the story behind Knights of Sidonia?
In this series, Earth has already been destroyed by the alien race Gauna. But mankind had managed to escape the attack and had fled in numerous big seed ships. The show is set in the year 3394, and it features NagateTanikaze who reemerges from his seclusion in a seed ship called Sidonia. The story revolves around Tanikaze who tries to protect whatever is left of humanity from Gauna’a assault. The audience is engrossed in the existing story of Guardian pilot NagateTanikaze, and if you haven’t watched it yet, you should give it a chance.
When will the next season be here?
There is no set official date yet but the production has started long back in 2017. The third season is definitely happening and fans can get the news about release date anytime soon. Anime lovers will know that when the new season is released, Japan will get to watch it first, and then it will be available on Netflix. Fans may expect the third season to drop around April or May. The third season hasn’t even started in Japan yet, so our best guess will be summer 2021. The third season can cover around 14-15 chapters of the anime. This anime is a favorite for many as it is surprisingly grounded.
