This article discusses (or speculates) whether there will be season 2 of the Netflix anime series Tekken: Bloodline and its renewed or cancelled status.

On August 18, 2022, Netflix released a video game adaptation of Tekken with the anime series Tekken: Bloodline, based on the character Jin Kazama from Tekken 3 onwards. Here is the premise:

Tekken: Bloodline was well worth the wait. It has a gritty, emotional origin story, following Jin Kazama from a child to adulthood, enduring the apparent death of his mother due to a demon, and then venturing out to the world to find his grandfather Heihachi Mishima for training to avenge her death. The anime series is not an immediate fly-in to characters fighting and instead teases the audience towards the King of Iron Fist Tournament. It’s a slow burner, but it’s worth the audience’s patience as the creators attempt to flesh out the world of Tekken in a serious manner rather than jumping straight into the action.”

At Ready Steady Cut, we gave the series a favorable review: “Tekken: Bloodline is a worthy adaptation that could be the basis of longevity with a gritty storyline, impressive storyboarding, and clear character arcs.”

With the series getting off to a good start, we have one question to speculate:

Will there be a season 2 of the Netflix anime series Tekken: Bloodline – renewed or cancelled status

Status: TBC/ not renewed yet

As we write this article, the series has still not been renewed, which is not unusual for Netflix as they always take their time to make a strategic decision.

With Netflix remodeling their business on release slates, it would not be surprising if we heard some news relatively soon on the status of this series (possibly in a month’s time). Netflix tends to look out for watch hours, so let’s hope the series gets enough to justify a continuation.

We would like to add, however, that renewing Tekken: Bloodline would be a great business opportunity for the streaming service. With the origin story beginning with Jin Kazama, there’s so much more of the story to flesh out, especially with Tekken 8 spurring the press releases of late. There could be a lot of stories to flesh out if there are enough fans and watch hours keeping this series moving.

At Ready Steady Cut, we’ll keep you informed on any news.

You can watch this series with a subscription to Netflix.
