Filming for the second season of Young Blood 大宋少年志2 has come to an end after three months and with it, fans are blessed with a freshly-released trailer and posters.
Five out of the six main cast have returned to reprise their roles as the young spies viewers have come to love. Steven Zhang Xincheng returns as Yuan Zhongxin, the cunning and prideful young man who eventually grows as a person thanks to the power of friendship. Zhou Yutong will still be giving life to the beautiful and independent Zhao Jian and of course, there’s also Zheng Wei as the timid Xue Yang, Wang Youshuo as the honest Wang Kuan and Su Xiaotong as the cutesy Xiao Jing. However, it seems He Haochen will not be portraying the playful Wei Yanei anymore, instead, Fu Weilun will be taking his place.
While it’s common to see a story in the mystery genre about youths working together to overcome trials, 2019’s Young Blood turned out to be a dark horse with stellar reviews and ratings. People have been clamouring for screenwriter Wang Juan to work on the script for season soon after and it may have taken three years but it’s good to have the gang back (most of them anyway)!
Season 2 will be much shorter with only 12 episodes compared to 42 episodes the first season. Hopefully, post-production can go by quickly and we can get an air date soon!
