About two years ago, Netflix brought in an Australian-New Zealand tv series. The show was called The New Legends of Monkey. It was inspired by a Japanese Production called Monkey that aired between the 1970s and 1980s. After the first season’s success, fans kept asking for more of the show. Everybody started becoming keen about The Legends of Monkey Season 2.
The show features Monkey King Sun Wukong, who has been captured under a mountain around 500 years ago by his enemies. After 500 years, demons have taken over the earth and are oppressing all humans and demons. All gods are hiding too. In the time of need, a scholar makes a plan to bring a few warriors and a monk together to go on a quest and free Monkey King. In the quest, they also find the Heavenly scrolls that the Moneky had stolen 500 years ago and hidden somewhere in the earth. Whoever finds the scrolls would get unlimited power. Only when the group was about to start their quest, a demon attacks the scholar’s home and kills everyone. However, his daughter remains alive. She takes on the quest.
As the quest moves forward, she moves out of the city with a magic crown. After that, she finds a stony visage with Monkey King’s face. So, she puts the magical crown on his head, which sets the Monkey King free. Both of them come back to the town and join Pigsy and Sandy, who also are gods. They all start looking for the strolls that would give them the power to overthrow the demons. What could come up in The New Legends of Monkey Season 2? Here is all that we know
