The NieR Automata anime will be postponed for the second time due to COVID-19, which caused the animation studio to postpone episodes 9 and beyond. As a result, the team decided to postpone episodes 9 and beyond.
The first time the NieR Automata anime was postponed was in late January 2023. In Japan, the committee re-ran the first three episodes during the show's usual time slot. However, in mid-February 2023, the show returned. Thus it is possible that this hiatus will not last long.
NieR Automata Ver1.1a is an anime adaptation of the popular NieR Automata game. There are a few differences between the show and the source material, like Lily's appointment as the leader of the Resistance androids.
NieR Automata Ver1.1a is now available on streaming services, including Netflix. It is unknown when the NieR Automata will be released.
