Sad news for K-drama fans, the long-awaited second season of Arthdal Chronicles will not be simulcast on Netflix. While season 1 will remain on Netflix for the time being, we’re told that season 2 “will not be available for streaming on Netflix.”
The first season of Arthdal Chronicles was split into three volumes of six episodes, released on South Korean cable network tvN, and streamed exclusively on Netflix around the world from June 1st, 2019, to September 22nd, 2019.
The key South Korean talent for the series includes Song Joong-ki, Jan Dong-gun, and Kim Ji-won.
The series is produced by Studio Dragon, who previously worked on Netflix shows such as Love Alarm, Crash Landing on You, My Holo Love, and Sweet Home.
“Set in the fictional land of Arthdal during ancient times. Eun Som was born with a fate to bring disaster to Arthdal. Due to his mother’s struggles to save him, he goes through hardships and grows up. He appears again in Arthdal. Ta Gon is a war hero of Arthdal. He has paved the way for Arthdal to become a prosperous city nation and he is the most powerful person in Arthdal. He dreams of becoming the first king of Arthdal. Tan Ya was born with the same fate as Eun Som. She is the successor of the Wahan Tribe. Going through hardships, she realized her mission. She lives under the highest honor, and her ambition is to become a politician.”
The second season synopsis is as follows:
“In Season 2, Ta Gon’s Kingdom of Arthdal and Eun Seom’s Ago Union are set to face an inevitable great war. Eun Seom is the ruler of the East now. Tan Ya is the successor to the Wahan clan. The story set eight years after Ta Gon has become king.”
