The Blade Runner movie franchise, based on the novel by Philip K. Dick’s Do Androids Dream of Electricians continues to grow with new installments. Viewers may have already seen two films created by Ridley Scott and Denis Villeneuve, where the second picture is a kind of sequel to the first.
Meanwhile, in 2019, the development of the animated series Blade Runner: Black Lotus was announced. After the premiere of the first season, the release date of season 2 of the anime Blade Runner: Black Lotus was announced. New episodes are expected to be released in 2023.
What do you think, is it worth filming a sequel, and what should be in it?
The original story shows viewers a future world inhabited by humans and androids. A group of unknown individuals creates firmware for humanoid robots that strips them of their limitations and turns them into real individuals. The government fears that this could lead to a revolt since until now androids have been used as a labor force and are actually slaves, but with their freedom of action, they may try to rectify the situation.
To combat them, a special unit was created, catching out-of-control androids and destroying them. In the first part of the film, a hunter of such robots falls in love with a female android and escapes with her. The release date of the 2nd season of the series is scheduled for the fall of 2023, it is known that the main role will be an android replicant, and the action will unfold between the events of the films.
The authors of the project said that their show is not just a series with the same name about a new character, but also the story associated with the already told. The action will unfold 13 years after the events shown in the first part. In the center of the story will be a girl with amnesia and excellent fighting skills. It is known that in addition to the main character, which is a new character, the old characters will also be shown on the screens.
