    Tsuburaya Productions Co., Ltd. has announced the second season of ULTRAMAN NEW GENERATION STARS (ウルトラマン ニュージェネレーション スターズ,  Urutoraman Nyū Jenerēshon Sutāzu), will launch on Saturday, January 27, 2024. The series will be broadcast on TV Tokyo starting at 9:00 am every Saturday.

    The "New Generation Ultraman" line began with Ultraman Zero, the son of Ultraseven, who will celebrate his 15th anniversary in 2024. Based on Zero's popularity, the television TV series ULTRAMAN GINGA (ウルトラマンギンガ, Urutoraman Ginga) started in 2013. Since then, a new Ultraman series with new Ultra Heroes has been released on TV every year.  This past January saw the debut of ULTRAMAN NEW GENERATION STARS, a television series that explores the history and depicts the power of the bonds between these newer Ultra Heroes.

    The current show ULTRAMAN BLAZAR (ウルトラマンブレーザー, Urutoraman Burēzā, 2023) has been added to the series, and the proud battles of the New Generation Heroes, known as "ULTRA PRIDE", will continue to be recorded in ULTRAMAN NEW GENERATION STARS. The 2024 season will be presented every week with a fresh look, featuring a new MC, the genius scientist Yuka Ohta (played by Hikari Kuroki) and the treasure hunter Ignis (played by Kei Hosogai) from ULTRAMAN Z (ZETT) 『ウルトラマンZ(ゼット), Urutoraman Z (Zetto), 2020』and a mysterious robot who somehow knows a lot about the Ultra Heroes.


    ● Synopsis
    Join Yuka as she traces the proud battle records of the New Generation Ultramen!

    Comment from Hikari Kuroki, who plays the role of "Yuka Ohta," the MC of the program

    It's been a while, everyone! This is Yuka Ohta!
    First of all, I would like to say that I am very happy to be able to appear in ULTRAMAN NEW GENERATION STARS.
    And I'm also the main MC.

    When I heard the offer, I was so surprised, delighted, and excited! (Laughs)
    I am also very grateful to all the people involved for giving me the opportunity to play the role of "Yuka Ohta" again, and those who have always supported me.
    I had said before, ``I hope that someday I'll be able to meet the viewers as Yuka again!'
    My wish really came true!
    I am so grateful!. Thank you very much!

    Looking back, it has been about 3 years since the filming of ULTRAMAN Z ended, and I still look back at Z from time to time and feel nostalgic. (Laughs)
    I will do my best so that everyone can see the same Yuka Ohta, so I would be happy if you could watch the series! I hope you enjoy it!

    The vocal unit "voyager" debuted in 2009, just like Ultraman Zero. The following year, they became popular when they sang "Let's Go! Ultraman Zero," the opening song for the movie ULTRAMAN ZERO: THE REVENGE OF BELIAL (ウルトラマンゼロ THE MOVIE 超決戦!ベリアル銀河帝国, Urutoraman Zero THE MOVIE: Chōkessen! Beriaru Ginga Teikoku). The artists who have been through hardships with the "New Generation" have grown into true stars alongside Ultraman, and have created anthems dedicated to the memories of the heroes depicted in ULTRAMAN NEW GENERATION STARS. For the second season, they have focused on the ULTRA PRIDE concept for the show with a song to inspire the New Generation Ultramen to fight on.
