The new season was announced in March 2019. It was originally set for release in October 2020 but it was later postponed to January 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The first season of the TV anime adaptation of the series was aired from January 11 to March 29, 2019 with 12 episodes covering the first story arc. It was animated by CloverWorks and directed by Mamoru Kanbe, with Toshiya Ono handling series composition, Kazuaki Shimada handling character designs, and Takahiro Obata composing the series' music.
A live-action film adaptation is set to release in December 18, 2020.
The Promised Neverland series is based on the Japanese manga series written by Kaiu Shirai and illustrated by Posuka Demizu. It was serialized in Shueisha's Weekly Shōnen Jump from August 2016 to June 2020, with the individual chapters collected and published by Shueisha into twenty tankōbon volumes.
It follows the story of Emma, Norman, and Rey, three young orphans who discover that their orphanage is most assuredly not all that it seems. When Emma and Norman find themselves discovering that one of their fellow orphans wasn't actually adopted, but was instead offered as food to a race of monsters that are seemingly ruling the world, the story creates a spine chilling narrative that sees the trio playing a game of cat and mouse with their overseers as they try to formulate a plan to escape.
