The Blood of Youth Season 2 少年歌行之南明离火 brings back director Yin Tao and author Zhou Munan to write the screenplay for another Youku live-action series based on the youthful wuxia novel. An animated series of the same name still produced by Youku is also underway.
It’s been exactly one year since The Blood of Youth aired last December 26. The show’s expansive world of heroes, which has its own mobile game and animation turned out to be a huge success as a live action series. The show maintains a solid Douban score of 8.3, and continues to earn much love among fans. A prequel with a new cast recently wrapped, but many are no doubt even more excited for the sequel.
The Blood of Youth Season 2 is expected to continue the story of Xiao Se, Lei Wujie, Sikong Qianluo, etc. as they embark on another adventure and meet even greater enemies. While it’s not official yet, the original cast is expected to return since season 1’s Li Hongyi, Lin Boyang, Ao Ruipeng, Li Xinze, Dai Yanni, Deng Kai and Fan Jinwei all shared the news of season 2 kicking off. However, many are worried that Liu Xueyi’s Wu Xin won’t be back as the actor did not do the same.
