It has also been popular in Demark, Jamaica, the Bahamas, Portugal, and the Czech Republic. Despite its rankings on Netflix, the animated program has received mixed reviews from its viewers.

One of the biggest gripes fans of Samurai Rabbit have is that the series is loosely based on the Usagi Yojimbo comic books by Stan Sakai. There are some inconsistencies with the story when compared to the comics by Sakai, which bothers some viewers. Most notably, the comic books all take place in the past while the animated show is focused on the future. The protagonist is also different from the comics.

People on Rotten Tomatoes have rated the show at 57%, while it has received a 6.6 on IMDb. Those aren’t the best ratings. So, it may seem iffy as to whether or not the series will be renewed for another season.

Will There Be A Second Season?

Although some of the reviews have been mixed, it has been confirmed that Samurai Rabbit will return for a second season. There aren’t any details as to what the storyline will be or when the new episodes will be released, but Netflix has renewed it.

Darren Barnet, Aleks Le, Mallory Low, and Shelby Rabara are all returning to voice characters for the animated show. Doug Langdale and Candie Kelty Langdale are also continuing to serve as co-creators for the program.
