To everyone’s surprise, the first season of the Korean drama Alchemy Of Souls has concluded after 20 episodes of high-octane, supernatural mysteries that have only scraped the surface of the show’s expansive backstory.
The famed screenwriting pair known as the Hong Sisters (composed of Hong Jung-Eun and Mi-ran) penned Alchemy Of Souls, which is set in Daeho, a fictional South Korean kingdom that looks to be partially modeled on the Joseon period. The series’ first season concentrated on the beginnings and ascent of Jang Wook (Lee Jae-Wook) as Daeho’s most powerful sorcerer, who harbors a terrible secret that includes illicit soul-shifting.
The season finale’s cliffhanger left us with plenty to lament and ponder, but the good news is that a new season of the K-drama is on the way. Here is all we know about Alchemy Of Souls’ second season. There are spoilers ahead.

Director Park Joon-Hwa said during a press conference for the program that a second season had always been planned for Alchemy Of Souls before the first season’s launch in June. At the time, he told the press, “There were so many modifications and variations in our tale, that I decided I wanted to include a human element in it.”
The script for part two is still being written, but it is in process. a narrative that fits into a box. I decided to develop a second season early on since it was harder than I anticipated to divide the storyline and love story into 20 sections.
Additionally, Alchemy Of Souls season 2 was confirmed, according to a July South China Morning Post story.
When will season 2 of Alchemy of Souls be released?
Just days before the first season ended, the South Korean cable network officially confirmed that Alchemy Of Souls season 2 will debut somewhere in December 2022.
The cast and crew of Alchemy of Souls allegedly started filming season 2 in July and anticipate wrapping up production sometime in the fall, according to many stories that surfaced before the first season finale. Then, according to a source from the K-production drama’s crew, “part two of Alchemy Of Souls is planned to premiere in December. There hasn’t been a firm announcement of the debut date.
How many episodes will Season 2 of Alchemy of Souls have?

What may the second season of Alchemy of Souls’ storyline look like?
Alchemy of Souls season one spoilers follow.
The storyline for season 2 has not yet been revealed in an official manner. However, there were various signs in the most recent finale about the course the Hong Sisters had in mind for the upcoming season. Jang Wook is seen emerging from the courtyard pyre as it bursts into blue flames after being purportedly killed by Nak-su (who is using Mu-corpse deok as a vessel) because of his identification as the King’s Star.
The actual Mu-deok, meantime, is in danger of drowning after plunging from a cliff and into a body of water. When you believe she has maybe perished, she is suddenly grabbed by a pair of ghostly hands and brought back to the surface.
Additionally, fans get a tantalizing first look at what is in store for them in the second season at the conclusion of the last episode. The brief clip shows Jang Wook on a killing rampage as he ruthlessly dispatches soul-shifters with Nak-sword su’s in what looks to be a time jump from the events of season one. Most intriguingly, it also raises the possibility that Go Yoon-Jung may reprise his role as Nak-su, heightening the uncertainty surrounding Mu-destiny deok.
Who is in the cast of Alchemy of Souls season 2?
Alchemy Of Souls’ current cast, including Go Yoon-jung, who initially debuted as the original Nak-su at the beginning of the program, appears to be returning, as seen by the aforementioned season 2 promo. The South China Morning Post reports that Go’s Nak-su will play a major role in the second season.
