Adult Swim‘s mini-series “Uzumaki,” based on the supernatural horror manga by legendary author Junji Ito, was announced way back in 2019, and alas, it has been delayed again.
The reason for the delay, however, is a good one.
An update shared to Twitter this afternoon explains, “Unfortunately, the premiere of the series must again be delayed. In order to replicate the quality of the intricate designs and detailed line work of Mr. Ito’s classic manga, Director Hiroshi Nagahama and the production team have asked for additional time to recreate Ito’s masterpiece properly.”
Read the full statement below and expect more information soon.
The most recent plan was for “Uzumaki” to release in October 2022 on Toonami.
Written and illustrated by Ito, the original manga series told “the story of the citizens of Kurōzu-cho, a fictional city which is plagued by a supernatural curse involving spirals.”
