It is now more than five years when the first season of Yona of the Dawn ended. Since then, there has been no communication as to when the second season will be released. The finale of the first season ended in March 2015. After that, there was a continuous release of special episodes until April 2016.

In April 2016, right after the Japan Kumamoto earthquakes, Mizuho Kusanagi announced a delay in the second series. Although she wasn’t injured, there was a delay followed by the release of several other volumes.

The new volumes have offered an opportunity for the continuation of the series. We, therefore, hope there shall be new seasons. With all the procedures put in place, the seasons should be ready before 2020 ends. It is, therefore, possible to have the Yona of the Dawn Season 2 released in 2021.

The plot of Season 2

Having a fictional format, the chances of having the second series continuing where the first ended cannot be ignored. In the first season, we see Yona living a stress-free life with her childhood friend and Hak, the bodyguard. The outside world is not known to him.

On his 16th birthday, Yona finds herself in a confusing situation. Su-Won, her lover, appears, and she expresses her love for Su-Won to her father. She finds Su-Won killing the king to take the throne. Good enough, Hak saves Yona from death.

Yona escapes his birth village to avoid the dangers. Once done, Hak’s grandfather that a priest by the name Ik-Su is found. His role is straightforward as he has to tell Kouka, who was the first king and the four dragons.

The major intention is to learn how the dragons and the king worked together to unify the kingdom. A mission is therefore launched to save the kingdom and make it united again. The teams pair up to find the dragon’s descendants. In this part, there is a lot of drama and suspense.

The storyline for season 2 picks up from where season 1 ended. In the second season, viewers expect to see how the kingdom was united. A lot of confrontation, action, and romance will dominate the second season.

The cast of Season 2

In the first season, the main protagonist, who happens to be Yona, does her best to get the kingdom leadership as the princess. Hak’s son, a great childhood friend to Yona, becomes the male protagonist and takes its major role.

Yun is a very caring person and is the assistant of Ik-Su. The good thing about him is that he can heal. Finally, we have Su-Won, who is a ruthless person responsible for killing Yona’s father to get the throne. The funniest thing is that he cares for Hak and Yona.

You should expect that the same characters will play an active part in season 2. The expectation for new characters is very low. However, with the addition of roles, there may be more characters.
