86: Eighty-Six episodes 22 and 23, which are also the final episodes of the first season, have been delayed until March 2022. Episode 22 will air on March 12, while Episode 23 is airing a week after – March 19.
This isn’t the first delay that the second cour of 86: Eighty-Six is facing. Episodes 18 and 19 were both pushed back due to the production issues. December 11 also didn’t have a new episode, because of a previously scheduled event. Scheduling issues, combined with production issues, were most likely the cause of the delays. Since episodes 22 and 23 are now delayed, episode 20 will be the final one of 86: Eighty-Six this year.
The staff once again apologized for the delay. The information came after a special program, which aired today.
