However, there are no other details on the project at this time, though we will be keeping an eye out as it goes into production. Could it be a second season? A spin-off? A movie? Only time will tell.
There’s also going to be a a two-part stage play, with the first SK8 The Stage play to open this December and the second part to open January 2022. There is also a new drama CD which will be host club themed.
SK8 the Infinity also has two manga adaptations currently in progress: a serialization of the first season of the show, and SK8 Chill Out!, a spin-off that focuses more on the skaters and their relationships.
Directed by Hiroko Utsumi and animated by the studio Bones, SK8 the Infinity is a 12-episode show following aspiring skaters as they learn new tricks, compete in competitions, and face off against foes.
