Based on the manga by Masamune Shirow and directed by Kenji Kamiyama and Shinji Aramaki, Netflix describes the new season of Ghost in the Shell: SAC_2045 as such:
Continuing from the mystery-laden ending of Season 1, the battle between Section 9 and the “posthumans” threatening humanity finally begins. The chaotic story unfolds at a breathless pace, posing the ultimate question: are the “posthumans” the potential of human evolution as shown throughout “Ghost in the Shell”?
