COVID-19 has been a major issue with the production of the Uncle from Another World anime, but we finally know when new episodes will air following multiple indefinite delays. The series start rebroadcasting the first seven episodes on October 6, which means the brand new eighth episode is scheduled to air in Japan on November 24.

Shigeki Kawai directs Uncle from Another World at anime production house Atelier Pontdarc. Global Netflix streaming kicked off on July 20, and there are currently six episodes available on US Netflix.

Yen Press publishes Hotondoshindeiru’s original manga in English and sums up the story below:

​Seventeen years ago, Takafumi’s uncle fell into a coma, but now he’s back like a man risen from his grave. Soon, Takafumi discovers two bizarre things: His uncle treasures video games above all else, and, while comatose, he was actually transported to another world as some heroic guardian! Now, not only does Takafumi have to room with an uncle who is literally magical, he also has to catch the guy up on two decades of history—smartphones, high-speed internet, modern anime tropes…and the traumatic outcome of the ’90s console war!
