Made in Abyss is Coming Back to Toonami With Season 2

Made in Abyss rounded out the final episodes of its second season earlier thus year with the end of the Summer 2022 anime slate, but soon fans will be able to check out the new season in a whole new way when it joins the Toonami programming block on Adult Swim! Made in Abyss: The Golden City of the Scorching Sun introduced fans to a whole new group of characters as Riko, Reg, and Nanachi continued diving deeper into the titular Abyss. Together with this new group also came some of the darkest moments of the anime so far, and that's saying quite a lot considering all that has happened already.

Toonami has officially announced on their Facebook page that Made in Abyss: The Golden City of the Scorching Sun will be making its debut with the block next Saturday, November 5th at 12:30AM EST! With the block now heading into the final months of the year as the Fall season begins to cool down, this will likely be one of the final new additions to the block (for 2022 as a whole) unless there are some major shake ups before the final months of the year are over. But it's a great one to end it on.

As for what to expect from the new season, Sentai Filmworks describes Made in Abyss: The Golden City of the Scorching Sun as such, "There is no going back for Riko, Reg, and Nanachi. They have passed the point of no return and the surface is forever out of reach. Now, Riko's only way forward is to the bottom of the Abyss. However, the three friends weren't the first to enter the unknown; they were only the most recent. Whatever happened to all the other explorers who braved the deepest layers of the Abyss and were never heard from again? The trio are about to find out."
