Seis Manos is an anime that changed the scenario for shows made outside of Japan. It was an anime with American and Mexican roots, and no one expected anything like it. The anime was produced by Powerhouse Animation under the supervision and hard work of Brad Graeber and Álvaro Rodríguez. While the word anime might not be the best description for the series given its origins, it fits the genre very well, and hence is used with the term. When the show came out back in 2019, it shocked everyone with the quality of content that it put out, as no one had seen something like this from an American studio before. Viewers went crazy after the first season and demanded Seis Manos Season 2 immediately. But then why hasn’t it happened? Read the article to find out what the reasons could have been.

Seis Manos Season 2: About The Show
Seis Manos is an animated show that has been produced in America and takes place in the fiction town of San Simon in Mexico. The show takes place in the 1970s era, and takes us on a nostalgic trip through time. The show was released in 2019 by Powerhouse Animation, and ran across 8 episodes, all of which were full of action that would keep you with your eyes glued to the screen.
The show revolves around three martial art warriors, who have been orphaned, and joined forces with a DEA agent and Mexican Federale, all in an attempt to avenge the death of their beloved mentor. It is a personal story of revenge and full of emotions that invoke a sense of loyalty to the mentor. The story moves as these three warriors go after the man that killed their mentor and put his life to an end.

Seis Manos Season 2: Plot
The first season of Seis Manos was quite a happening one, as the orphans got to the killer of their mentor, and put death to the Blade. What resulted was chaos and a lot of repercussions for their actions, and now the death of the Blade is going to have effects on the city that they did not anticipate. Now, the taking back of the town after the fight is going to be something to look forward to and is going to ensure a lot of drama. Seis Manos Season 1 left a lot of unanswered questions and a lot of loose ends, and they are all expected to be resolved and tied up by the end of season 2.
We are expecting to see a lot of focus on character development and the deepening of the bond between the characters while focusing on the aftermath of all that transpired in the first season. We would also get to see the other side and to see things from a different perspective. Maybe the ones taking revenge weren’t really all that we thought they were.

Seis Manos Season 2: Could A Season 2 Happen?
After the release of the first season, Seis Manos quickly took the animation world by storm, and was well received by the audiences. People really loved the concept of the show and the way that it embodied the story. It was an instant hit, and was met with an overwhelmingly positive response. In fact, it is a show that got a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and was the subject of high critical acclaim around the world. It seems that Netflix had really struck a gold mine with this one. In the words of a famed critic, Seis Manos was the “General Kane of Mexican Anime“. And that is really something to think about.
Naturally, after the first season ended, fans went crazy about the show and started demanding season 2. They grew antsy by the day and questions regarding the renewal of the anime were looming around. Netflix had not renewed the anime and was generally mum on the entire situation. However, the creators of the anime expressed interest in producing a second season and also highlighted that they even had a script for season 2 ready to go.

Seis Manos Season 2: Release Date
The sole fact that the showrunners went to the trouble of making a script for season 2 highlights the fact that there is a lot of potential for it, and it might just be an issue of Netflix giving the green light on the show. Another thing is the fact that Netflix hasn’t officially canceled the show, and there is still hope for renewal. Netflix has a habit of keeping things confidential when it comes to renewals and announcements, and this could just be that.
However, the fact that it has been two years since the show came out doesn’t inspire a lot of confidence in us. It might just be that Netflix has put it on the back burner, and might eventually cancel it. But there is still hope, and we are holding on to it. We expect that Netflix might announce the renewal for the show sometime in late 2021 or early 2022. But if it has not happened by then, the chances for Seis Manos Season 2 ever making it to our screens look pretty grim.

Seis Manos Season 2: Final Words
Seis Manos Season 2 is one that definitely needs to happen following the events of the first. And given how long animes take between each season sometimes, I would still hold my hopes that there will be a second season, at least for some time. If Netflix issues the cancelation though, I would be sorely disappointed, because this is one show that definitely pleased me.
