Many fans have wondered if the Psycho Pass anime would be getting a third season, considering how controversial season 2 was. Well, season 3 doesn’t seem to be coming yet but we’re getting the next best thing: a trio of films.
For those who have never seen the show, Psycho Pass takes place in the future where technology can predict when a person will or has committed a crime. The show follows a division of Enforcers, those who essentially track down these people and point a special gun that dole out punishment. However, the system is not what it seems, and things gets bloody very quickly. This is definitely not a show for the faint of heart.
Psycho Pass Sinners of the System, or Psycho Pass SS for short. The first film is entitled Case 1 Tsumi to Bachi, which translates to “Crime and Punishment.” The film will focus on two secondary characters who are on the inspector force Mika Shimotsuki and Nobuchika Ginoza.

The second film is called Psycho-Pass SS: Case 2 First Guardian, will showcase characters secondary characters of Tomomi Masaoka and Teppei Sugo. The third movie, Psycho-Pass SS: Case 3 First Guardian (On The Other Side Of Love And Hate), will focus on the male main character of the series, Shinya Kogami. Production IG, the studio behind the first season, will return to produce Psycho-Pass Sinners Of The System trilogy.
A continuation of the series could still be in the works, but until then, fans will just have to hope that the return of Production IG will be enough to satisfy them until they get more concrete news.
Psycho Pass Sinners of the System: Case 1 Tsumi to Bachi will premiere in Japan (and maybe in some place worldwide) sometime in January 2019.
