Aggretsuko‘s first season followed Retsuko, a red panda who works a tough office job, forced to work under a sexist, demanding boss, chatty and annoying co-workers, and other inconveniences of daily life. She makes new friends, falls in love with another red panda (who she ultimately breaks up with), and continues to be true to her death-metal-loving self.
Hopefully, we’ll get to see a little development in Retsuko’s relationships with the two boss women, Gori and Washimi, as well as a potential budding romance with Haida.
The show proved to be a huge success in its initial run, so it’s no wonder that Netflix would be eager to get another season up and running while the iron is hot, so to speak. We’ll bring you more information when Netflix releases a trailer and/or premiere date.
