Disney has announced that the hit Japanese original horror-thriller series “Gannibal” has been renewed for a second season.
Set in a fictional Japanese village, season one of “Gannibal” follows recently relocated police officer Daigo as he arrives at his new job and home as a broken man. As Daigo wrestles with his guilt over an event that traumatized his daughter, things start off promisingly, before a series of alarming events quickly lead him to the horrifying realization that something is deeply wrong with the villagers and the mysterious Goto family who seem to run the town.
Season 2 will see the return of Yagira as police officer Daigo Agawa; Show Kasamatsu as Keisuke Goto, the head of the Goto family; and Riho Yoshioka as Yuki Agawa, Daigo’s strong and supportive wife.
The second season will again be directed by Shinzo Katayama, with each episode written by Oscar-nominated screenwriter Takamasa Oe (Ryusuke Hamaguchi’s Drive My Car) and produced by Teruhisa Yamamoto (Drive My Car‘s Oscar-nomiated producer). The show is based on a popular Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Masaaki Ninomiya.
