The anime series official X (formerly Twitter) account announced on Friday, November 24, 2023, that the Nier: Automata anime cour 2 has been officially confirmed to be in production. The news was revealed through a tweet with a nearly 40-second video, featuring clips from the first cour of the anime in black-and-white. Towards the end of the trailer, some shots from the Nier: Automata anime cour 2 were depicted, officially confirming its production. However, no further details are currently available besides this announcement.
Fans are excited about this news, especially considering the delays and production interruptions faced by the first cour. The initial announcement of the second cour was made just over three months ago, suggesting that the new production may debut in late 2024 or early 2025.
As of now, there is no additional information on the Nier: Automata anime cour 2. The first cour encountered various delays due to the impact of COVID-19 on production, with some episodes postponed by a week and others by nearly a month. The final four episodes were put on hold for several months before airing in July 2023 to conclude the series.
There is speculation about the production team’s decision to stick with A-1 Pictures despite the issues faced during the first cour. The series was directed by Ryoji Masuyama, with character design by Jun Nakai and music composition by MONACA. The official Aniplex of America account has retweeted the announcement post, indicating their continued association with A-1 Pictures.
Fans eagerly await further updates on the Nier: Automata anime cour 2 production.
