Korean drama Alchemy of Souls, which boasts stunning visuals and an all-star cast, has, to everyone’s dismay, wrapped its first season after 20 episodes of high-octane, otherworldly mysteries that have barely scratched the surface of the show’s sweeping lore.
Set in Daeho, a fictional kingdom within South Korea that appears to be loosely based on the Joseon era, Alchemy of Souls was written by the acclaimed screenwriting duo the Hong Sisters (consisting of Hong Jung-Eun and Mi-ran).
The first season focused on Jang Wook’s (Lee Jae-Wook) rise to prominence as the most potent sorcerer in Daeho, even though he was hiding a dark secret involving the illegal practice of soul-shifting.
There was a lot to be sad about and think about after the season finale, but thankfully there will soon be a new season of the K-drama. Details about the upcoming second season of Alchemy of Souls, which will be titled Alchemy of Souls: Light and Shadow and premiere on December 10, have finally been revealed (with a Netflix release).

Has Alchemy Of Souls Season 2 been confirmed?

There were “so many changes and variations in our narrative,” he told the press at the time, as reported by Sports Chosun.
“I thought I wanted to put a human story in it,” he added. The script for Part 2 is still being written, but it’s coming along. A self-contained narrative. It was harder than I anticipated to condense the story’s narrative and relationship arcs into 20 episodes, so I decided early on to produce a second season. The South China Morning Post announced in July that a second season of Alchemy of Souls had been ordered.

What Could the Plot of Alchemy Of Souls Season 2 be Like?
Herein lie spoilers for episodes one through ten of Alchemy of Souls. A Facebook post from tvN on November 9 revealed that three years had passed since the events of the first season of the fantasy drama Alchemy of Souls: Light and Shadow.
Since a lot of time had passed between seasons one and two, actor Lee Jae-Wook (who plays Jang Wook) talked to 1st Look about the challenges he faced in returning to the role for season two. “When [season one of] Alchemy of Souls concluded, I had exactly one week to rearrange things.
In the wake of catching up on my backlog, the past week seemed to fly by. According to translations in a November 22 Soompi report, Lee said, “Given that, I lacked the strength to reprise Jang-wook three years later [in the show’s timeline].”
For that reason, production slowed down at first. I found it challenging to have my personality captured in a way that did it justice. What’s more, the Hong Sisters’ plans were heavily foreshadowed in the season one finale.
When Nak-us (using Mu-body deok’s as a vessel) kills Jang Wook, everyone believes he is dead. However, the King’s Star causes the pyre in the courtyard to burst into blue flames, and Jang Wook is resurrected.
Who is In The Cast of Alchemy of Souls Season 2?
According to the aforementioned season 2 trailer, it appears that the entirety of the original cast will be returning for the second run of Alchemy of Souls, including Go Yoon-Jung in the role of the original Nak-us. The South China Morning Post reports that by the end of Season 2, Go’s Nak-su will have become a pivotal figure.
In addition, the preview featured actors who were later confirmed to be returning from their previous roles: Lee Jae-Wook, Minhyun, Arin from OH MY GIRL, Shin Seung-ho, Oh Na-ra, and others. There were rumors that Jung So-(the min’s actress who played Mu-deok) representatives were unable to confirm her participation in Season 2.
There are still two episodes left, so it’s difficult to answer because it will be a spoiler, the production team told Soompi before the season finale. Since Mu-fate deok was left up in the air at the end of the first season of Alchemy of Soul and Go is reprising his role as Nak-su, it’s possible that Jung won’t show up in the sequel.
