Netflix’s Scissor Seven is one of the standout anime shows of 2020 and season two has just dropped on Netflix. However, the show is only available in the original Chinese with the English-dubbed version ‘pending’. Is season two going to be in English and when can fans expect it to arrive?
With more and more anime shows competing for our attention, the genre can sometimes feel like it’s becoming washed out and diluted with a lack of original content. Thankfully, Scissor Seven offers something completely unique.
The mixture adult humour from a story about a professional killer and childish sex jokes had fans giggling from the first episode to the last.
One of the main reasons why the show hit was able to land jokes consistently was because of the voice acting.
Ronny Chieng (Seven) and Jas Patrick (Dai Bo) were superb in season one but their voices are yet to return to the show, with season two only featuring Mandarin audio.
Now, fans are left wondering whether or not the season two will be in English and if so, when will the English-dubbed version become available on Netflix.
Will Scissor Seven season 2 be in English?
Despite season 1 only dropping on Netflix in January 2020, the second instalment of the series has just been released. However, the show is only available in the original Chinese audio and the option for English currently titled ‘Pending’.
It is highly likely that season 2 will have an English-dubbing and describing the alternative audio option as ‘Pending’ suggests that it will be made available relatively soon.
We definitely know that there is an English version of season two recorded because there is a dubbed trailer on YouTube, so it’s just a matter of time.
When will season 2 be released in English?
Currently, we don’t know when the English dubbed version will be released but we can speculate that it will be sooner rather than later.
In other Netflix originals, if the English-dubbing wouldn’t be available for a while, it was always described as ‘Coming Soon’. So, we can confidently say that there will be a season two in English within a matter of weeks.
Why is season 2 only available in Mandarin?
When season 1 was dropped on Netflix, the English option was available from the get-go, but that’s not the case for the second instalment.
Unfortunately, it is highly likely that complications due to the world being in lockdown will be why season two of Scissor Seven is only available in Mandarin right now.
