‘Parasyte -the maxim-‘ is a horror sci-fi anime that is known for being extremely brutal with its portrayal of a war between humans and the extra-terrestrial. Its core ideas may seem a bit familiar, especially to those who have seen Hollywood movies like ‘Venom‘ and ‘The Thing.’ Even so, the anime has a gruesome charm of its own that keeps you captivated throughout its runtime. In case you haven’t watched it yet, you can now check it on Netflix.
Since it is on Netflix now, if the anime does well commercially on the platform, it is possible that Netflix might renew it for another season. In the unlikely scenario of it being renewed, the second season of the anime will be adopting an original storyline since its manga’s publication ended way back in 1995. That being said, if Netflix renews it, we can expect ‘Parasyte’ Season 2 to release sometime in 2022.
Parasyte season 1 premiered on October 9, 2014, and with a total of 24 episodes, it finished airing on March 29, 2015. All 24 episodes of the anime were then released on Netflix on May 15, 2020.
The series follows a high school student called Shinichi Izumi whose right hand becomes possessed by an alien parasite named Migi.
Over the course of the season, Izumi finds himself battling other parasites who feast on humans in an exciting but creepy storyline.
Unfortunately for the fanbase of the show, there will probably not be a Parasyte: The Maxim season 2.
The plot of season 1 ends exactly where the manga ends, meaning there is no material left to adapt the story from.
So, it is highly unlikely that we will get a Parasyte: The Maxim season 2 unless the author decides to continue the template manga.
