Taylor and Hayley still hope to reach the safety of Sydney aboard Atlas Destroyer, the scaled-down training Jaeger that was left behind when Australia was evacuated. With teenage assassin Mei and the mysterious human/kaiju hybrid bOy joining them, the makeshift family must cross dangerous territory controlled by the bloodthirsty cult Sisters of the Kaiju. Led by the enigmatic High Priestess, these zealots are conviced that bOy is their long-awaited Messaiah and wills top at nothing to bring him into their dark circle.
Pacific Rim: The Black's first season premiered March 4th, 2021. It is based upon the Pracific Rim franchise and was developed and co-written by Greg Johnson (Thor: Ragnarok) and Craig Kyle (X-Men: Evolution) for Netflix.
