Mobile Suit Gundam 00 will be getting a sequel, it was announced Saturday.
Director Seiji Mizushima, who helmed the original, is working on the project.
It is not yet clear whether the sequel will be a new series, film, OVA or something else entirely.
It was also announced that the series will be getting a stage play, which will premiere in February 2019.
Mobile Suit Gundam 00 originally aired between 2007 and 2008, and had 25 episodes. A second season aired in 2008-2009.
Here’s how Sunrise and Right Stuf describe the series:
The year is 2307 A.D. While the Earth’s reserves of fossil fuels have been depleted, humanity has obtained a new, nearly infinite source of energy to replace them in the form of large-scale solar-powered generation systems based on three huge orbital elevators. However, the benefits of this system are available only to a handful of major powers and their allies.
These orbital elevators belong to three superpower blocs: the Union, the Human Reform League and the AEU. These confederations continue to play a grand zero-sum game for the sake of their own prestige and prosperity. Thus, even in the 24th Century, humanity has yet to unite as one.
In this world of unceasing conflict, a private armed organization steps forward, declaring their intention to eliminate war through martial force. Using the power of their mobile suits combatively, a series of four high-performance machines each dubbed “Gundam,” the paramilitary organization known as Celestial Being takes the world stage, beginning armed interventions within all the world’s nations.
