Here’s all that you’ll need to know on 7 Seeds including the plot, cast, trailer, and Netflix release date.

Manga Coverage of 7 Seeds
At the time of writing, there are currently 35 volumes (179 chapters) published. The story has also been split into different chapters focusing on the seasons and weather or the various regions of the new world. The 7 Seeds manga has a lot of story jam-packed into its pages, therefore, it wouldn’t be surprising if the anime was to cover only 20-30 chapters for the first season. Once the series has aired and we know roughly where it coincides with the manga story we’ll be better suited to predicting the coverage of season 2.
The Characters of 7 Seeds
The hostile world in which these characters live in we could see plenty fall like dominos…
Episode count and runtime for 7 Seeds Season 1
The full episode count is yet to be announced for 7 Seeds. Most anime series air with 10 to 13 episodes to which we are expecting 7 Seeds to follow suit.
Each episode’s runtime will be roughly 25 minutes long.
7 Seeds Netflix Trailer
Netflix has released a teaser for the upcoming Original anime. We can expect a full trailer to be released closer to the release date.
When is the Netflix release date for 7 Seeds?
7 Seeds was originally set to release in April 2019, but due to delays in the production of the anime, the series has been pushed back to June 2019. Gonzo the studio responsible for the development of 7 Seeds released an official statement regarding the delay.
We now have confirmation that Netflix will release Part 1 of 7 Seeds on the 28th of June, 2019!
Will there be a season 2 of 7 Seeds?
Development of the second season will depend on viewing figures from subscribers. The story of the manga came to an end in 2017 so out of the 35 volumes published it would be safe to assume there is room for of least 3 seasons of 7 Seeds.
