Netflix Release Date: Season 1 May 1st – Season 2 May 15th

Three seasons of Dr. Stone have been released; however, we think Netflix will only receive two seasons at most—certainly a great way to introduce new fans to a fantastic anime series.

When Taiju attempts to confess his feelings for classmate Yuzuriha Ogawa, disaster strikes, and a blinding flash of light seen around the world petrifies humanity.

Jujutsu Kaisen has the anime world in a chokehold, and fans can’t get enough! A third season is on the way. However, Netflix will likely only be receiving the first season. That’s still 24 excellent binge-worthy episodes.

To save his Occult Research Club friends from a curse, high schooler Yuji Itadori swallows a cursed object that houses the extremely powerful curse Sukuna. Itadori can retain his body but is sentenced to death by the Jujutsu sorcerers, an order of influential cursed users that exorcise curses.
