To date, this is the first title Netflix has acquired from the network the series airs on with the majority of other Taiwanese titles coming from Public Television Service (in the case of On Children and A Taiwanese Tale of Two Cities).

The series will be available in Mandarin audio but is not expected to be dubbed. Instead, a myriad of subtitle options will be available including English and Spanish.

Here’s the official synopsis provided by Netflix for the fantasy mystery romance series:

“A baker by day and demon fighter by night, a reincarnated deity must jog his amnesiac lover’s memory of their millennium-long romance.”

Jui-Chih Chiang serves as the director for the series who is previously known for Age of Rebellion and Endless Love.

Among the cast for the series includes:

  • Yu-Wei Shao
  • Bor Jeng Chen
  • Amanda Chou
  • Roy Chang
  • Dewi Chien
  • Ai-Chen Tan

In total, 20 episodes will make up season 1 which will be added from October 2020 through to March 2021.
