Hirohiko Araki’s JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure manga inspired an original anime video project in 1993 and 2000 respectively and has since spawned multiple sequels and spinoffs. The third season, titled JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders, aired in 2014, followed by the fourth and fifth seasons that were released between 2016 and 2018. The upcoming sixth season, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean, is slated for release in December 2021 on Netflix, while the official TV broadcast will start in January 2022.
Anime News Network has described the first season as:
Beginning its tale in 19th century England, young aristocrat Jonathan Joestar finds himself locked in bitter rivalry with Dio Brando, a low-born boy who Jonathan’s father took under his wing after the death of Dio’s father. Discontent with his station in life, Dio’s fathomless drive to reign over all eventually leads him to seek the supernatural powers of an ancient Aztec stone mask in the Joestars’ possession – an artifact that will forever change the destiny of Dio and Jonathan for generations to come. Fifty years later, in 1938 New York City, Jonathan’s grandson Joseph Joestar must take up his grandfather’s mission and master the abilities necessary to destroy the stone mask and its immensely powerful creators, the Pillar Men, who threaten humanity’s very existence.
