Netflix has released a two-minute clip from the upcoming Ghost in the Shell: SAC_2045 Season 2, which previews an action sequence involving the Tachikomas and post-human Takashi Shimamura being pursued. The anime is set to release on May 23.

The first season of the 3CDG anime was released in 2020. The show is a follow-up to the Ghost in the Shell: Standalone Complex series, which originally ended in 2006 with the Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex – Solid State Society movie.

The anime’s website describes Ghost in the Shell: SAC_2045 Season 2 as:

The year is 2045. As a result of the Global Simultaneous Default, an economic disaster that shook every country on Earth to its foundations, as well as the explosive evolution of artificial intelligence, the world has plunged into the Sustainable War, a planned war that can be continued indefinitely. In this near future, the decline has not yet become bad enough that people can sense in their daily lives the risk to human survival posed by A.I.

To combat cybercrimes by the Posthumans, a new breed of human being that has suddenly arisen, Public Security Section 9, led by the fully prosthetic cyborg Motoko Kusanagi, makes its way to Tokyo, which was reduced to ruins in a previous war. What they find there are a refugee group that calls itself “N” and a hostile American Special Forces unit. As the risk of nuclear war set off by a hijacked submarine grows ever greater, the three-way battle between Public Security Section 9, America, and the Posthumans intensifies.

Like the first season, the staff includes Kenji Kamiyama and Shinji Aramaki as directors, Ilya Kuvshinov as character designer, and Nobuko Toda and Kazuma Jinnouchi as music composers. Production I.G and SOLA DIGITAL ARTS are producing the anime, while millennium parade is performing the theme song.

Ghost in the Shell began as a manga by Masamune Shirow in 1989. The manga has inspired various anime TV series, OVAs, and movies with varying continuities. There have also been novels, video games, and a live-action Hollywood adaptation.
