Pachinko Season 2: The Apple TV+ adaptation of Pachinko, an epic tale that could quickly fail on screen, has instead defied expectations to become one of the best shows of the year.
Much credit goes to Soo Hugh’s original take on the subject. Instead of following the book’s linear structure, the creators of Pachinko intertwined multiple timelines to tell the story of Sunja’s life across several generations all at once, making for a fascinating and immersive experience.
As effective as this is, it can only be fully implemented if Pachinko is given the multiple seasons its merits. Fortunately, Hugh has ordered four more seasons, and Apple has just confirmed that season two will indeed happen.
She told Variety, “There is no way you could tell the book’s story in one season, nor should you.” “It wouldn’t do justice to the book’s achievements. When you consider all the characters we’ve created, you realize that you want to experience life alongside them. That was our goal from the start when we were filming the series. Hoping there will be a second season.”
Pachinko Season 2 Potential Release Date: When Will It Air?
The second season of Pachinko has been officially renewed, but given the global scope of the production, it may be a while before we get to see it.
As a bonus, Soo Hugh, the show’s creator, is working on another series for Apple TV+. Tom Hiddleston, who played Loki, will play a British adventurer who attempted to cross Antarctica on foot in The White Darkness, an adaptation of the non-fiction book by David Grann.
Hugh is the showrunner on the project with Black Swan creator Mark Heyman.
Even while we wouldn’t be shocked if season two of Pachinko didn’t premiere until 2024, in light of all that has been said, the early renewal gives us optimism that it might premiere sooner.

Pachinko Season 2 Plot: What Will It Be About?
The Pachinko actor Lee Min-ho told us exclusively at Digital Spy that he “would be thrilled to come back for a second season: “I believe all the characters undergo significant development.” As a result, I can’t wait to see how our characters develop as people in season two.”
But how does this development manifest itself? At the end of Season 1, Sunja could strike out on her own as a kimchi vendor at the local marketplace. If her husband is released from jail, her family will be able to make it until then.
This adaptation has been an authentic yet remixed rendition of the source material; thus, readers of the novel will likely have a good idea of what will happen next. However, new characters like Naomi hint that unexpected features will continue to startle even veteran readers in season two.
Nonetheless, we know that little Noa will have a much larger part to play in the future. Don’t forget to pack your tissues, either. If the first season is any indication, the second season will be just as heartwarming and heartbreaking as the first.
“There are three things about Season 2 that I am looking forward to. Kyunghee (Eun-Chae Jung) is one of my favorite characters in the show, and I hope that in season two, she gets to shine as her unique individual.”
Soo carried on: “I don’t think we get a catch of the brothers between Mozasu and Noa in season one because they’re so young, but that brotherhood is amazing in season two. The second season features the best reunion I’ve ever seen. I would be spoiling the story if I mentioned any names.”
