Netflix, via their sci-fi-focus NX account, has announced that they’ll be streaming the latest installment in the Ghost in the Shell universe, titled Ghost in the Shell: SAC_2045, in 2020. This follows the three Ghost in the Shell: Arise movies that Netflix began streaming several years ago.
No plot details have been released, but given that this is Ghost in the Shell we’re talking about, prepare yourself for plenty of both philosophizing and cyberpunk action. The series will apparently have two seasons, with Kenji Kamiyama (Ghost in the Shell: Standalone Complex) directing one and Shinji Aramaki (Appleseed) directing the other.
Ghost in the Shell: SAC_2045 will be presented in 3DCG à la several other Netflix animé titles, including Blame!, the Godzilla movies, and the upcoming Ultraman series (while comes out next year and will also be directed by Kenji Kamiyama. And if the above Kuvshinov Ilya artwork is any indication of the new series’ style, it’ll be a pretty interesting look for Ghost in the Shell.
