Last June it was rumored that Sidonia no Kishi/Knights of Sidonia would be getting a second season, today I can confirm that at the end of episode 12 it was announced that a second season is in production.
An advanced screening of season 2 episodes 1 and 2 will be held on November 23 at the Sidonia no Kishi/Knights of Sidonia premium event. More information will be announced at a later time.
Sidonia no Kishi/Knights of Sidonia synopsis from Haruhichan.
It’s been a thousand years since the Gauna, a strange alien race with no known method of communication, destroyed the solar system. A portion of humanity managed to escape using enormous “seed ships” like the Sidonia, which have allowed them to maintain the population while drifting through space. Nagate Tanikaze is a young man who has been raised deep in the bowels of the ship. When he goes into training to pilot the huge robotic weapons known as Gardes, Nagate is entrusted with piloting the legendary unit known as Tsugumori. Nagate and his fellow pilots put their lives on the line against the Gauna, in the ultimate battle for the survival of humanity!
