Nier Automata anime season 2 release date speculation

The second season of the Nier Automata anime is coming sometime in 2024. We predict that it will start airing in the summer, around July or August.

What is the name of the Nier Automata anime?

The official name of the Nier Automata anime is Nier Automata Ver. 1.1a, as a nod to the slight changes in the story between the game and the anime adaptation.

What is the anime’s story?

Unsurprisingly, the anime heavily revolves around the proxy battle between the human-made androids and alien-crafted machines. It’s set in the year 11945, and, much like in the 2017 game, it sees 2B and 9S investigating the behavior of machines as part of a reconnaissance force. Without giving too much away, you can expect to come across numerous familiar faces.

Which company made the Nier Automata anime?

Aniplex is behind the production of 2B’s TV debut. If you’re an anime fan, you might be familiar with Aniplex, as its work includes Blue Exorcist: Kyoto Saga, Fate/Grand Order, Persona 5: The Animation, Sword Art Online, The Promised Neverland, and more. Given its impressive portfolio, it feels safe to say that the Nier Automata anime is in good hands, and given the current reviews for the anime, we’re right in saying that.
