    Update on Blade Runner anime series coming in July!

    It’s been almost two years since Adult Swim and Crunchyroll announced that they were partnering for an anime series based on the hit sci-fi film franchise Blade Runner and after no word in the time since, we’re finally set to hear an update this July at the Adult Swim Con!

    The series, titled Blade Runner: Black Lotus, will take place in 2032 and will include characters previously seen in the Blade Runner universe. Shinichiro Watanabe (Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champloo) is serving as creative producer on the series, and he preivously wrote and directed Blade Runner Black Out 2022, an anime short film that served as one of three short prequels to Blade Runner 2049. You can check out the anime short below!

    Shinji Aramaki (Appleseed), who also worked on Black Out 2022, and Kenji Kamiyama (Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex) will direct all of the 13 half-hour episodes. Animation studio Sola Digtal Arts (Ultraman) will produce. Alcon’s Andrew Kosove, Broderick Johnson, Laura Lancaster, Al-Francis Cuenca, and Sola Digital Art’s Joseph Chou will executive produce. Ben Roberts will serve as co-executive producer for Alcon, with Production IG’s Mitsuhisa Ishikawa will participate as production adviser.

    “The Blade Runner universe is an incredibly deep well for story and character with its world and mythology that audiences have been debating and talking about since inception,” Kosove and Johnson said in a previous statement. “We are excited to continue exploring that world via this anime series.”

    “I first saw Blade Runner in 1982, at age 11. It has remained one of the defining films of my life,” Jason DeMarco, svp/creative director of Adult Swim on-air, said in a previous statement. “To be able to explore more of this universe, with the incredible talent we have on board, is a dream come true.”

    Adult Swim will maintain worldwide distribution rights for the English dubbed version of the series, excluding Asia. The English dubbed episods will air on Adult Swim’s anime programming block, Toonami. Cruncyroll will handle worldwide streaming; both companies are divisions of WarnerMedia.
