No premiere date has been announced yet, but a new one will be announced sometime in the near future. The anime was initially intended in 2019 for a 2020 release, but the COVID-19 epidemic had ended and the anime was later rescheduled for October of this year.

The four-episode miniseries is set to tell the story of Itos'' original manga, which follows the lives of several people in Kurouzu-cho''s fictional city, who have been affected by a bizarre curse involving spirals. The anime, directed by Hiroshi Nagahama of Mushishi and The Flowers of Evil, is being released by Drive, with a score from Hereditary composer Colin Stetson.

Uzumaki''s Nagahamas isn''t the only anime based on Junji Ito''s work on the market, as Netflix has recently announced the anime anthology Junji Ito Maniac: Japanese Tales of the Macabre, which will be released next year.
