Masami Kurumada's Saint Seiya is one of the most popular action franchises in the world, and it's been experiencing a revival as of late with a crop of new projects that have popped up in the last couple of years. One of the more interesting leading the pack was a completely CG animated remake of the series debuting with Netflix. But the unexpected aspect of this debut, however, was that it premiered with only six episodes available. Luckily, it won't be too much of a wait to see the next batch as Netflix has revealed the release date for Part 2.
The official Netflix Japan Twitter account announced that Part 2 of Knights of the Zodiac: Saint Seiya will launch worldwide on January 23rd. The account also shared some new images previewing what's to come in the next six episodes.
