With the Mexican anime series Seis Mannos, Powerhouse Animation truly excelled. Fans are asking when a second season of Seis Manos can be seen on Netflix after a great first season. Unfortunately, we’re still waiting on news of renewal, but there’s evidence to suggest that could change very soon.
Seis Manos is a Netflix Original anime series created by Brad Graeber and Álvaro Rodríguez. This series was the first Original American-Mexican animated series. It was produced by Powerhouse Animation (Castlevania). While many question its status as an anime series because of its North American production, regardless it’s still a fantastic looking series with an equally great story.
Three orphaned Martial Arts warriors are joined by a DEA agent in San Simon, Mexico. They seek revenge for the loss of their mentor.
Netflix Official Renewal Status Pending (Last Updated on 07/11/2019).
It’s been over a month since the release of Seis Manos, and Netflix is still yet to announce the future of the series. Netflix has a reputation for being silent when renewing their original titles. While some Originals are able to be renewed in a matter of weeks or months, others can take several months. Brad Graeber (showrunner) has spoken out about the possibility of the series' future. In an interview, Graeber disclosed that a script was in the works for the second season.
The fact that a script exists, shows there’s hope for the future of the series.
Powerhouse Animation has been hard at work creating upcoming Original animation such as Gods & Heroes or Masters of the Universe: Revelation.
The overall response has been positive from subscribers.

Assuming that Seis Manos will be renewed, we aren’t expecting to see the second season for a long time. If it follows the same release schedule as Castlevania, the second season won’t be available until 2021. Between the first and second Castlevania seasons, there were 15 months.
