It's scheduled for 26 episodes and aimed at children between the ages of 8 and 12. No release date information is currently available.

Osamu Tezuka's Tetsuwan Atom manga, known as Astro Boy internationally, began in 1952. It was adapted into one of the earliest anime TV series and ran from 1963-1966 on Fuji TV. Later adaptations followed in 1980-1981 on Nippon TV, and again in 2003-2004 on Fuji TV. The most recent animated adaptation prior to Astro Boy Reboot was a 2005 theatrical film co-produced by Tezuka Productions and Hong Kong's Imagi Animation Studios.
