Guardian: The Lonely and Great God season 2 Release Date:
The first season was aired in December 2016, and the large reception gives us hope that season 2 will be renewed. We have waited for three years for the season 2 release. However, we are yet to get any official statement about its launch. Fans had hoped that the show would be released in 2020, but the current global Coronavirus pandemic has faded all the hopes. We can only wait patiently.
Undoubtedly, this is one of the most popular Korean dramas of all time. And they still want to know if there will be another season. When Gong Yoo stated his thoughts on the ending, people were pretty certain that the show would be renewed. “Your ‘Guardian’ days aren’t gone yet,” he added. I was under the impression that the drama was over. I’m quite concerned.”
Fans are hoping for a Season 2 after hearing this news. However, it has already been confirmed that ‘Guardian: The Lonely and Great God’ will not see a sequel. “Sad to hear there will be no Season 2 to happen,” Gong Yoo tweeted in 2017. Some stories are better left unfinished.”
That’s it! In reality, no formal confirmation of a second season was ever given. We’ll be sure to update this section if the producers change their minds, given the show’s widespread popularity.
