Netflix teams up again with Ghost in the Shell … Netflix is pairing up with

renowned Japanese anime studio Production I.G for an animated TV series set in the Terminator universe.

The company is billing the project as a team-up between Matt Tomlin,

the writer of the Netflix superhero film Project Power, and the studio best known for producing

TV adaptations of legendary manga Ghost in the Shell, though little else is

known about the show or when in the complex Terminator timeline it may take place.

Netflix teams up again with Ghost in the Shell This isn’t Netflix’s first time working with Production

I.G. Beyond its Ghost in the Shell work, the studio is known as the animator of

the Psycho-Pass series and the wildly popular sports anime Haikyu!! But with Netflix, Production I.G produced an original series called B: The Beginning (originally pitched under the name

Perfect Bones), which debuted in 2018 with a long-awaited second season arriving on Netflix next month.

Netflix is no stranger to anime. The all-encompassing anime umbrella, which includes

animated works of various styles and genres, has been one of the hottest streaming service

content categories of the last half-decade.

Numerous platforms have shelled out big money over the last few years to both acquire the rights to stream existing anime series and also develop new,

exclusive ones that can draw in new subscribers, with Netflix arguably leading the pack

while longtime anime distributors like Funimation and Viz Media have become major

players in the streaming licensing business. Late last year, Sony paid nearly $1.2 billion to

acquire anime streaming service Crunchyroll from AT&T, yet more evidence of the entertainment industry fervor surrounding anime.

It’s paying off, too: more than 100 million households watched at least one episode of an anime on Netflix between October 2019 and September 2020 read more here
