The quest to find a safe haven continues for Lena and members of the Eighty-Six in "86 Eighty-Six" Season 2, Episode 1 (Episode 12). The new season will pick things from six months after the Spearhead squad’s farewell.  

The official website has released the synopsis of "86 Eighty-Six" Season 2, Episode 1 (Episode 12). It has been six months since the farewell and Lena has been demoted from major to captain because of her unauthorized use of military mortar during an operation.

With the wishes of Shin and the Spearhead squad embedded in her heart, Lena leads a new unit and continues to fight the enemies of the Republic.

The promo trailer of "86 Eighty-Six" Season 2 reveals what is in store after Shin and the Spearhead squad’s last mission.

The promo opens with Ernst Zimmerman asking his colleague about the analysis. The unnamed colleague informs Zimmerman that they are not spies of San Magnolia or any other country.

Zimmerman wonders if they are a new type of Legion or carriers of their bioweapons. Later, Zimmerman states the world would be a better place without humanity.

“Called ‘Juggernaut,’ these are the unmanned combat drones developed by the Republic of San Magnolia in answer to the attacks by the autonomous unmanned drones of the neighboring Empire of Giad, the “Legion”. But they’re only unmanned in name. In reality, they are piloted by the Eighty-sixers—those considered to be less than human and treated as mere tools.

Determined to achieve his own mysterious ends, Shin, the captain of Spearhead Squadron, which is comprised of Eighty-sixers, continues to fight a hopeless war on a battlefield where only death awaits him,” read the official series synopsis, according to Crunchyroll.
