PACIFIC RIM: THE BLACK Shares First Images and Final Season Release Date

Pacific Rim: The Black is heading for an epic conclusion. Fans of the franchise loved the first seven episodes of the show, which followed two siblings on their search for their parents. Of course, as this is a Pacific Rim show, this search included piloting their Jaeger, a whole lot of adventure, and some fantastic characters and creatures. And now, the adventure continues with the final season of Pacific Rim: The Black.

Netflix and Legendary Television have revealed the final season of this show will release on April 19. They also share a description of the upcoming season. The synopsis shares:

In the epic series conclusion of Pacific Rim: The Black (S2), the journey is far from over. 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. 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.

We will see a lot of action for sure. Between Jaegers, assassins, a cult, and possibly a Messiah, Taylor and Hayley will have their hands full. And we can’t wait to watch their adventure conclude. Fingers crossed all our favorite characters make it out in one piece. Something that certainly won’t be easy with so many dangers all around them. But we have faith in their strength.

Netflix and Legendary Television also shared some first-look images from the show. And they really give us a sense of the scale of this season. Take a look, here:

We absolutely love how varied our first glimpse of the season feels. And that cult… We wouldn’t want to mess with it, ourselves. Just look at those eyes. Can a Jaeger fight indoctrination? We’ll just have to see. All of this makes us want to watch right away, though. So as we wait for April 19, we’ll be busily rewatching season one if you need us.
