Netflix has uploaded the first three minutes of Ultraman Season 2 on YouTube ahead of the series’ April 14 release on the streaming platform. 

The clip begins with a mysterious incident that sees multiple people disappearing, with the event later being brought up during a conversation between Shinjirou Hayata and Rena Sayama. The clip ends with a scene of Kotaro Higashi/Ultraman Taro being greeted at the airport by his girlfriend, Izumi.

Ultraman Season 2 is arriving three years after the first Ultraman season, which was released in 2019. Netflix describes the plot as:

The series centers on the son of Ultraman, Shinjiro Hayata, and the six heroes (ULTRAMAN, SEVEN, ACE, ZOFFY, JACK, TARO) who carry on the tradition of the legendary 6 Ultra Brothers. Together, they face the schemes of aliens on a cosmic scale.

Kotaro Higashi, a young photographer, encounters a mysterious missing persons case. He takes a photo proving that it was the work of aliens and brings it to the SSSP with his girlfriend Izumi. However, a certain incident transforms him into a superhuman with incredible fiery superpowers.

Then, a massive cosmic weapon appears before the human-sized Ultraman…
