Knights of Sidonia is slated to be pulled from the Netflix library again next month.
This particular anime series has a significant history with Netflix
Season 1 and Season 2 of Knights of Sidonia are scheduled to be removed from the Netflix library in January of 2021. But, if history repeats itself, this may be a very short lived removal. As What’s On Netflix reminds us, this is the oldest anime series under the Netflix Original umbrella. It, however, technically falls under the “internationally distributed exclusive.” The series currently has 24 episodes total. And, they are all set to be removed on January 1st, 2021.
The Netflix fan site describes the series as “one of the best anime series” on the streaming service. It is liked for its gorgeous animation and its incredible story. For someone who has never watched anime before, this series is an nice gateway for newbies.
This isn’t the first time Netflix lost Knights of Sidonia
Netflix lost the rights to stream Knights of Sidonia back in July of 2019. After just six months, however, Netflix reclaimed those rights and the series was added back to the streaming library. A few regions, including Australia, however, never got the series back. But, this makes sense. Streaming rights on an international level can get pretty complicated.
Naturally, this has a lot of Netflix subscribers thinking the removal of Knights of Sidonia this time around isn’t a huge deal. After all, it will just come back, right? What’s On Netflix reminds us Netflix does not provide all of the details about every contract they have in place.
Will we see a Season 3?
We also know some fans of Knights of Sidonia are holding out hope for a Season 3. But, as more time passes, it becomes harder and harder for this to be a possibility. That being said, there is a film attached to the series slated for release in 2021. We don’t have much information regarding whether the film will hit Netflix. But, we do know the studio behind the series is still working with Netflix and working on fresh anime shows!
