This post-apocalyptic sci-fi anime has been creating some positive buzz since its debut on Netflix this year and let's find out about the chances of its renewal.
It’s been a while since we have seen a mash of science fiction and horror anime available for streaming on Netflix. Exception made its debut on Netflix on October 12, 2022, and it's adapted from an original story written by Hirotaka Adachi. Exception might have received a lukewarm response from most anime lovers, but some netizens have praised its stunning worldbuilding, clever plot, and unique style of CGI animation. Exception might be the only high-concept sci-fi space adventure on Netflix at the moment and we can’t help but wonder if there is a possibility of its renewal or not. Let’s move ahead to find out everything we know so far about Exception season 2.
Renewal Status: Pending/Most Likely Canceled
Exception has unfortunately not been renewed for a second season yet but depending on how popular it gets on Netflix, we just might get the continuation of the story. The show is currently performing moderately worldwide and has not climbed up to the Top 10 List on Netflix yet. There is no denying that Exception is binge-worthy, and apart from a few loose ends, there was no cliffhanger in the final episode.
Season one of Exception might start off looking like a generic sci-fi space exploration plot, but it gains depth with the progression of each episode. In this story, mankind is forced to leave Earth and find another suitable galaxy and planet to repopulate there by terraforming it. A biological 3D printing device creates copies of the crew sent out on a mission to Planet X-10 which could possibly be the new habitable planet for humans. But the printing machine malfunctions to create a deformed monstrous creature that poses a threat to the entire crew and their project. The rest of the show takes the audience on a thrilling ride through the voids of space as we question if the crew can survive this monster and succeed in their mission or not.
There are five primary characters in this anime. Lewis is voiced by Chikahiro Kobayashi. Nina, Mack, and Oscar are voiced by Yūko Kaida, Takahiro Sakurai, and Takanori Hoshino respectively. Atsumi Tanezaki serves as the voice of Patty. It was directed by Yuzo Sato, and Ryuichi Sakamoto composed the music.
At an early stage like this, nothing is exclusively known about the plot of the second season, but netizens can make a few guesses. There isn’t much left to explore in the potential second season unless the story takes a completely different trajectory. By the end of the first season, we saw the crew succeeding at their mission to make Planet X-10 habitable with their clones, and if a second season is greenlit by the studio, then we can see humanity residing on this new planet and facing a set of new challenges in order to survive.
No, there is no trailer for season 2 of Exception yet but feel free to take a look at the season 1 trailer below.
