Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War picked up the story of Ichigo, Rukia and the soul society over a decade after the anime was last on the air.
Fans of Tite Kubo's original manga were particularly excited about the return since the franchise's final arc remained unadapted when the show was canceled back in 2012.
Production company VizMedia announced ahead of the release that Bleach's epic finale would be released in four 'cours' of 13 episodes, with breaks in between each cour.
Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War Part 2 began airing on Disney+ in the UK on July 8, with subsequent episodes released every Saturday on the platform. Viewers in the US can watch the sequel series on Hulu.
