Previously, the official Netflix description for the upcoming season indicated that Stone Ocean would be a monthly release. The new announcement reveals that Netflix users will get a head start on the official broadcasts. It’s unconfirmed whether Netflix will continue to release monthly uploads after the initial December debut, or if uploads will resume after the official broadcast begins.
Additionally, David Production released four new teaser trailers for the upcoming season. Each trailer focuses on a specific part of the upcoming season, such as the main character Jolyne, as well as her relationship with her father Jotaro. One trailer also introduces the various new stands that will appear in Stone Ocean.
