Apple TV+’s Pachinko is officially renewed for a second season and is already drawing attention for its new plot.
Pachinko is a story that begins with forbidden love and chronicles the war and peace, love and separation and victory and justice as characters leave their homeland in an indomitable quest to survive and thrive in Japan and in the United States. Youn Yuh Jung, Kim Min Ha, Lee Min Ho, Jung In Ji, and Jin Ha star in the series.
In the final episode of Season 1, Sunja goes to see Isack, who has been arrested, with the help of young children.
As a showrunner, writer, and executive producer, Soo Hugh expressed what it’s like to get a second season of his show. “Words cannot express my joy in being able to continue telling the extraordinary story of this indomitable family. I express my gratitude to the wonderful team at Apple and Media Res studio for having their trust in this project. And I’d like to send many thanks to all fans for their love and support. It’s an honor to be able to continue working with this amazing cast and crew.”
Expectations are high on whether the story of a grown-up Noa will pan out in Season 2. Season 1 only captured the childhood of Noa, son of Sunja and Hansu. Hence, viewers are wondering about who will be playing the grown-up version of Noa in the upcoming season. As some stars will not return in the second season, there will be new additions to the show’s cast.
