It has been a year and more since Netflix disclosed its plan for Arthdal Chronicles Season 2. Well, the K-drama didn’t take much time to become one of the top shows in South Korea. However, its fate is still in limbo due to the ongoing pandemic. But recently, we learned the much-needed updates of Arthdal Chronicles Season 2. So, let’s explore to see what will come next in this season.
Arthdal Chronicles is the first ancient fantasy K-drama that is loosely based on Dangun’s story. It follows a story of power-hungry youth living in a mythical land called Arth during the Bronze Age. While some inhabitants grapple with power struggles, other encounter love on their way. Amid the chaotic situation, Eun-seom deals with plenty of challenges to find his true origin and place.
Arthdal Chronicles Season 2: Has It Renewed?
The first season dropped back in June 2019 on Netflix. However, Netflix took nearly nine months to announce the fate of the series. Finally, Netflix renewed Arthdal Chronicles Season 2 back in February 2020. There’s no doubt that the fans around the world highly embraced the first season. But, the pandemic halted the production plans. Further, it’s been more than a year since the creators stayed mum to reveal any updates.
Moreover, Netflix had recently removed Arthdal Chronicles Season 2 from its 2021 lineup. It, in turn, leads to fans speculating whether the streamer canceled the second season after the pandemic hit the world. But don’t worry, as the streamer hasn’t officially canceled the series, which is also a good sign. So it’s safe to say that the second run is on its way.
Arthdal Chronicles Season 2: When Will Production Begin?
Initially, the filming was scheduled to begin in the second half of 2020. However, the wake of COVID-19 halted the production plan. In addition, it led the production house to make some changes as they can’t shoot overseas. But after a year-long wait, finally, we learned that the production has started. On May 30, an Instragam handler shared some snaps straight from the set. The crew members can be seen working on the set.
However, the post was quickly removed, which only implies that the creators don’t want to reveal any details about the production. Further, when a fan asked whether the filming on the second run has begun, the handler confirmed that the picture was taken on May 30, 2021, only. Moreover, Song-Joong Ki seems to grow hair after wrapping Vincenzo’s latest run. Thus his latest picture teased that production is soon to begin. A fan also asked the same on Song-Joong Ki’s pictures.
Arthdal Chronicles Season 2: Who Will Return?
Well, the creators had already confirmed that all the lead actors would return to reprise their roles. It means fans could see more of Song-Joong Ki as Eun-seom and Saya in the next run. Besides, Jang Dong-gun as Ta-gon, Kim Ok-Vin as Tae Al-ha, and Kim Ji-won as Tan-ya will also join the cast. However, we can expect to see some new faces in the next run as well.
Arthdal Chronicles Season 2: What To Expect?
As of now, the second season’s plot details have been kept under wrap. But we can expect that the battle for power would continue in the next run. Now that Tae Al-ha, Eun-seom, Ta-gon, and Tan-ya owe the land, it would be pretty difficult for them to deal with the power. Well, Ta-gon wanted to become the king, and now sharing the rulership with others would give birth to his evil side. Meanwhile, Eun-seom could be a great threat for Ta-gon, who is aware of his capabilities.
Arthdal Chronicles Season 2: When Will It Release?
So far, we know that filming has finally begun. That means it won’t take much time to land on Netflix. However, the first season took eight months to wrap up filming. So deeming the amount of time it takes in filming, it seems that Arthdal Chronicles Season 2 would air sometime in late 2022. Stay tune with us for more updates.
