Scissor Seven will return for its third season and debut on Netflix worldwide in October 2021. The Chinese anime often flies under the radar but if you’re a fan of the genre, here’s why you need to give it a shot.
First appearing on Netflix back in January 2020 (although originally only with the original Mandarin in place), the Chinese anime series has been a true gem to Netflix’s huge arsenal of anime titles from across the globe.
Have you ever seen the show? Here’s what you can expect going in:
“Seeking to recover his memory, a scissor-wielding, hairdressing, bungling quasi-assassin stumbles into a struggle for power among feuding factions.”
Just a few months later, a second season was released in May 2020. Its animation style, which was created by Sharefun Studio, has received praise for being both incredibly funny and able to cross genres.
Season 3 of the show began airing back in January 2021 so it’s been locked away in the so-called Netflix Jail for quite some time. The new season will feature 10 episodes with the first episode entitled “Goodbye”.
On October 3, 2021, all 10 episodes of Scissor Seven Season 3 will be available on Netflix worldwide.
Here’s the logline for the new season of Scissor Seven season 3 giving us a taste as to what we can expect:
“After his departure from Chicken Island, Seven makes a few detours before winding up in Xuanwu, where there’s a steep price on his head.”
There are many formats available for the series, with English subtitles and the original Mandarin being preferred. A dub in English is available, as are dubs in French and Spanish.
It’s unknown at this time whether a fourth season is expected further down the line.
