*October 28, 2021 Update*
Are you ready to see The Penthouse star Kim So Yeon in the much-awaited Tale Of The Nine-Tailed prequel? According to Soompi, her agency released a statement that says: "Tale Of The Nine-Tailed 2 is one of the projects that she received a script for. Nothing about her appearance has been finalized." It was previously reported that Jo Bo Ah might not be returning as the female lead, but that there's a big chance Lee Dong Wook and Kim Bum will be reprising their roles.
I don't know about you, but I am SERIOUSLY ready for more Tale Of The Nine-Tailed content. Twitter and Facebook ~blew up~ last night after rumors started flying, and because I'm so excited and I wanna share the *feels*...
Here's ~everything~ you need to know about Tale Of The Nine-Tailed Season 2:
What will Season 2 be about?
On September 27, rumors about a second and third season started making their rounds on social media, and "sources" said Season 2 will be set during the Japanese colonial occupation and Season 3 during the Joseon Dynasty. However, the offish statement from tvN states that they are only "having positive discussions" about it at the moment, with 16 episodes planned for Season 2. Kang Shin Hyo, the director of Season 1, is on board as well.
Who will be in the cast of Tale Of The Nine-Tailed Season 2?
There are rumors that among the original lead cast, Jo Bo Ah will not be reprising her role. According to Soompi, tvN has responded to the rumors to say that "nothing about the cast lineup or the broadcast details have been finalized."
Of course, we're expecting the nine-tailed gumiho himself, Lee Dong Wook, to star in the next season. And if the rumors are true that it will be set in the past, this means Kim Bum might be reprising his role in the show! His character Yi Rang was so well-loved that tvN released a mini-series spinoff just for him, and we *might* be seeing more of his BFF Kim Yong Ji as Yoo Ri as well.
When (and where) can we watch it?
As of this writing, a release date for Season 2 hasn't been announced, but Season 1 is available for streaming on Viu, iQiyi, and Netflix.
