The production for The Fiery Priest 2 has begun in earnest.
According to SPOTVNEWS, SBS is preparing for The Fiery Priest 2 with the goal of broadcasting in 2023.
The Fiery Priest centers around a Catholic priest with anger management issues and a detective from the Gudam Police Station who meet during their joint investigation into the murder of an elderly priest.
The first season was a huge success and was one of the most-watched dramas aired in 2019. Lead actor Kim Nam Gil won numerous accolades for his portrayal of a priest with anger management issues, and other supporting actors such as Um Mun Suk and Ahn Chang Hwan were discovered.
In particular, the final episode announced season 2 with the phrase “We Will Be Back.” Then in 2021, a notice was posted on the production company’s website – “The best hit of 2019, The Fiery Priest, will return” – raising expectations.
After a long preparation, the production team started the first step of production. Kim Nam Gil is also considering reprising his role as Kim Hae Il in the upcoming season.
In response, Studio S told SPOTVNEWS, “Season 2 hasn’t been confirmed yet, but the production is under discussion.”
