Funimation Adds English Dub of The Promised Neverland

Funimation announced that the English dub of Posuka Demizu and Kaiu Shirai’s The Promised Neverland (Yakusoku no Neverland) anime series is coming to their streaming service. The dub is set to premiere on July 1 in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, and Ireland. describes The Promised Neverland as follows:

Surrounded by a forest and a gated entrance, the Grace Field House is inhabited by orphans happily living together as one big family, looked after by their “Mama,” Isabella. Although they are required to take tests daily, the children are free to spend their time as they see fit, usually playing outside, as long as they do not venture too far from the orphanage—a rule they are expected to follow no matter what. However, all good times must come to an end, as every few months, a child is adopted and sent to live with their new family… never to be heard from again.

However, the three oldest siblings have their suspicions about what is actually happening at the orphanage, and they are about to discover the cruel fate that awaits the children living at Grace Field, including the twisted nature of their beloved Mama.

News broke yesterday that live-action tv series will be coming to Amazon in the future. A second season of the anime is slated for a future date after being delayed by COVID-19. The English dub originally aired on Adult Swim’s Toonami back in April 2019.
