Blade Runner: Black Lotus is an animated series inspired by the film Blade Runner 2049. The series is produced by animation studio Sola Digital Arts, with Shinji Aramaki (Appleseed) and Kenji Kamiyama (Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex) directing and Shinichiro Watanabe (Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champloo) serving as creative producer.[3]

The series is a co-production between Alcon Television Group, Adult Swim and Crunchyroll, with Adult Swim holding the worldwide rights (excluding Asia) to distribute the English dubbed version of the series, while Crunchyroll will handle worldwide streaming. The English dubbed episodes of the series premiered on Adult Swim's Toonami programming block from November 13, 2021 to February 5, 2022.[3][1] Reruns of the series returned to Toonami for a brief run from August 13, 2022 to September 10, 2022.[2]

The series was officially cancelled in September of 2022. The cancellation is likely a part of the wider purge by Warner Discovery of its properties, which also included Fena: Pirate Princess and Shenmue the Animation, following the merger of the two media conglomerates in April of 2022.[4]
