Shenmue Anime Series Cancelled Despite Season 2
Shemnue: The Animation was cancelled on Adult Swim and Crunchyroll.
The announcement follows rumours that a second season of the show was in development.
"Sorry guys," wrote Jason DeMarco, SVP of animation and anime at Warner Discovery, in a tweet announcing the news.
He said, "And sure, it's looking like there won't be a [season 2] of Shenmue. "Sadly, it fared well enough that we were preparing for S2, but Maybe someday...
The show's English dubs are being removed from streaming services, and according to DeMarco, Crunchyroll may not be able to stream them.
"I don't believe that's of interest to them. And I'm not even sure if it would be permitted," he added.
