The series premiered in March 2021 with seven episodes, and its second and final season will begin next month. The series is set in the same universe as the original two Pacific Rim films, but takes place at an indeterminate point in the future. The show still focuses on the general plot of the original films, and sees a race of monsters known as Kaiju having taken over the continent of Australia, with two siblings — Taylor and Hayley Travis — among a pocket of survivors on the continent.

Check out a batch of new images from the upcoming season of Pacific Rim: The Black Season 2 below:

“Our brave siblings Taylor and Hayley still hope to reach the safety of Sydney aboard Atlas Destroyer, the scaled-down training Jaeger left behind when Australia was evacuated. With teenage assassin Mei and the mysterious human/kaiju hybrid bOy joining Taylor and Hayley, this makeshift family must cross a dangerous territory controlled by the bloodthirsty cult Sisters of the Kaiju,” reads the official synopsis for the new season. “These zealots, led by the enigmatic High Priestess, are convinced that bOy is their long-awaited Messiah and will stop at nothing to indoctrinate him into their dark circle – something Hayley would sacrifice everything to prevent.”

The original Pacific Rim movie directed and co-written by Guillermo del Toro debuted in 2013 and starred Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi, Ron Perlman, and Charlie Day. Also written by Travis Beacham, the film followed a waging war between humankind and monstrous sea creatures where a former pilot and a trainee are paired up to drive a seemingly obsolete special weapon in a desperate effort to save the world from the apocalypse. The movie was followed-up by Pacific Rim: Uprising in 2018 from Steven S. DeKnight, starring John Boyega, Scott Eastwood, and Cailee Spaeny.
