Made in Abyss is an anime adaption of the manga with the same name. There are currently three movies and one season of the show released. The story follows Riko, an orphan girl in the town of Orth. In the center of this town is a mysterious giant hole known as the Abyss. People go into the Abyss to explore and find artifacts and remnants of past civilizations. Riko wants to become a legendary Cave-Raider, known as a "White Whistle," like her mom was, and one day she discovers a robot boy within the Abyss who she names Reg. Believing her mother is at the bottom of the Abyss, Riko embarks on a journey with Reg to descend into the Abyss and find her.
While there is no exact release date, the second season of Made in Abyss is slated for a 2022 release. Sentai Filmworks will release the new season digitally and will follow with a home video release later. You can check out the first trailer for the new season below.
