Here’s what we know about the plot. Everyone has a part of themselves that they can’t show to anyone.
The nations of the world are engaged in a fierce information war that is happening behind closed doors. Ostania and Westalis are embroiled in a cold war that has been going on for decades.
The Eastern-Focused Division of Westalis Intelligence Services, or WISE for short, sends their top spy “Twilight” on a mission to investigate Donovan Desmund, the chairman of Ostainia’s National Unity Party, which threatens the peace between the two nations.
This is Operation Strix. Twilight has a week to assemble a family to infiltrate the school Desmund’s son attends so they can attend the social gatherings.
Twilight takes on the identity of Loid Forger, a psychiatrist, and adopts Anya. What he doesn’t realize is that the little girl can read minds and that his wife Yor is a hit man.
It is up to this new family to bring about world peace while hiding their secrets from each other.

What else do we know about the anime?
The series will have 25 episodes, with a 12-episode premiere on TV Tokyo and other networks in Japan. A second series of 13 episodes, SPY x FAMILY Part 2, will air in late 2022.
For those who don’t know, a cour is the measure of an anime series. The average course is 10 to 14 episodes running over a three-month period. Seasons with 24 to 25 episodes are longer, making courses all the more important to do justice to the series.
It gives the studio time to catch up with the manga and gives studios a chance to produce exclusive anime content. Such as extra storylines or extra episodes to extend the runtime.
Japanese will be able to purchase the first DVD/Blu-ray volume on July 20, 2022. Both will feature the first four episodes and will run for 90 minutes.
The normal versions contain credit minus ED/PV. ED means the ending song and PV is for promotional video. For those who like limited editions, you get the ED/PV, a 3-sided cover by character designer Kazuaki Shimada, A2 poster with liner notes, the front of the poster is illustrated while the back is molded interviews and other information.
Limited editions also come with a digipack, a special disc featuring a 30-minute recital of the SPY x FAMILY stage reading. It is not yet known when the English dub will be available on DVD/Blu-ray.
