Will there be a season 2?

Arthdal Chronicles is a much-loved Korean drama series that takes references from some mythological excerpts and characters. The show premiered on June 1, 2019, and received a warm response from the audience across the world. While its fans were eagerly waiting for the announcement regarding its second season, its makers did not disappoint them and on February 12, 2020, it was officially announced that the show was being renewed for a second season. 

Although, soon after, Covid struck the world and ceased the pace of our lives. Therefore, the show’s production process was brought to a halt. Ever since then, there has been no news about its second season. Its name was not even mentioned on the list of the 2021 line-up shows. 

Some believe that the makers of the show must have possibly dumped the idea for a second season, or by now there would have been a second announcement about its second season.
