Scott Pilgrim Anime Trailer Netflix Cast

Netflix’s Scott Pilgrim Anime Likely Won’t Get a Second Season

Netflix recently released Scott Pilgrim Takes Off, a loose anime adaptation of the beloved source material by creator Bryan O’Malley. The first season was a critical success and hit with viewers, though those hoping for a continuation might be left disappointed. According to O’Malley, the plan was always to produce one self-contained season with a complete story instead of worrying if a second season would ever be greenlit.

Speaking to Rolling Stone in a recent interview, O’Malley shut down the possibility of Scott Pilgrim Takes Off ever receiving a second season but for a good reason. The creator says it was always meant to be one season, similar to Cyberpunk: Edgerunners, that contained a full story with an ending. While some fans argue that the show actually ends on a cliffhanger, O’Malley says that there will be no continuation of any kind.

On the decision to make the Scott Pilgrim anime one season, O’Malley stated, “People are always complaining about how shows get cancelled after 1 season. So we hedged our bets immediately, and tried to make a self-contained 1 season.”

The IMDB plot description for Scott Pilgrim Takes Off reads:

“The titular slacker and in a garage band named Sex Bob-omb with his friends. His life is turned upside down when he meets Ramona Flowers, an American girl who is recently single. But before their love can blossom, Pilgrim finds himself challenged by his love’s seven previous relationships, and must defeat them in over-the-top fashion.”

While Scott Pilgrim is a one-and-done deal for Netflix, the streaming service has plans to continue other acclaimed new shows including One Piece, which was officially renewed for a second season shortly after the first season launched to positive reviews and high viewership numbers. We got the opportunity to talk to One Piece actor Steven John Ward, who plays Dracule Mihawk in the live-action show, about his stunt work and working with the rest of the cast.

Scott Pilgrim Takes Off is now streaming on Netflix.
