OK. Folks out there who likes science; biology, chemistry, & physics, that can be integrated with anime, then the news is very interesting for you. FMA or Full Metal Alchemist will have a second season. YES! Edward and Alphonse will be back and said to animate the story base from its manga.
About the time period of the FMA, my guess is that, the second season will be in the middle between first season and the movie since FMA movie was set two years after the events of the first season.
In any case look at this site
