On March 20, 2018, a teaser for the two new seasons was released and it was revealed that FLCL Progressive will premiere on Adult Swim's Toonami block in June of 2018, followed by Alternative in September.[1] Adult Swim initially planned to simulcast the English subtitled version of each episode at as they aired.[6] However, the release of the subbed versions of Progressive and Alternative were pushed back to November to align with the Japanese release.[7] In Japan, FLCL Progressive aired as a feature film, opening in theaters on September 29, 2018.[8]

Many years have passed since Naota and Haruhara Haruko shared their adventure together. Meanwhile, the war between the two entities known as Medical Mechanica and Fraternity rages across the galaxy. Enter Hidomi, a young teenaged girl who believes there is nothing amazing to expect from her average life, until one day when a new teacher named Haruko arrives at her school. Soon enough, Medical Mechanica is attacking her town and Hidomi discovers a secret within her that could save everyone, a secret that only Haruko can unlock.

The story centers on 14-year-old Hidomi, her classmate Ide, and two otherworldly beings, "Jinyu" and "Haruhara Haruko," who are determined to unlock their hidden potential. Mixed up in this is an all-powerful force known as "ATOMSK," a gorgeous vintage car… and a certain Vespa Scooter.
