The Disastrous Life of Saiki K. Reawakened (New 2019 Series) Scheduled for Netflix this Winter

Netflix Japan has announced new details for their upcoming new season for the Saiki K. franchise.

During the past couple of days, Netflix has revealed the official localised title as The Disastrous Life of Saiki K. Reawakened and is currently scheduled to make its debut worldwide on the streaming service this Winter (Update from 23rd October: All 6 episodes will be available on 30th December). Unlike the exclusivity streams for Season 2 and the two-episode final arc special, the Reawakened series will be labeled under the Netflix Original series slate.

It’s not clear if an English dub would be included given the previous seasons (outside of the first season) were subtitled only, however, Netflix branded anime titles over the last couple of years did offer a dub.

You can still watch the first, second and final arc of the series on Netflix.

Saiki K. Reawakened was first revealed back at AnimeJapan 2019 in March 2019, where Netflix announced plans to offer a new anime season for the franchise. The announcement came days after the final arc became available on Netflix outside of Japan. The final arc adapted the chapters concluding the manga series, and it is not completely clear on whether Saiki K. Reawakened is anime-original or adapting chapters not covered in earlier seasons. However, two characters will be making their appearance in the series; Takumi Iguchi, voiced by Kousuke Toriumi, and Hii Suzumiya, voiced by Nao Tōyama.

Studios EGG FIRM and J.C.Staff will return to animate the series and the Japanese cast will reprise their roles for the characters.

About The Disastrous Life of Saiki K. (via Funimation):

“Saiki Kusuo is your typical 16-year-old high school student, except for one thing—he’s got psychic powers. It’s really not as great as it sounds, though. High school isn’t making things easy, and his quirky classmates and embarrassing parents just can’t leave him alone! He’s got the world at his fingertips, but the one thing he’ll never get…is a break.”

Funimation licensed, streamed and released the first season for The Disastrous Life of Saiki K. on Blu-ray in the United States and Canada in both English & Japanese audio. The English dub is included in the first season’s stream on Netflix and is also available on Funimation Now.
