Netflix’s fantasy period drama Alchemy Of Souls made fans insane with its unique plotline and magical world. Now fans are clamoring for more as they can’t get over the show. However, it remains unclear whether Alchemy Of Souls Season 3 will return. Well, there are plenty of things that suggest the show should return. Even the amazing finale left fans wondering whether Jang Uk and Naksu would return as they returned to life in the second run. So will it happen? Let’s see.
Alchemy Of Souls is set in a functional country Daeho. It focuses on young mages’ growth and love as they deal with their twisted fates. An elite warrior named Naksu is accidentally trapped inside Mu-deok by a forbidden magic spell, “alchemy of souls,” that allows them to switch bodies. Naksu, later entangled with Jang Uk, started teaching him magical skills, and they both fell in love. But three years later, Mu-deok ran wild and killed innocent people while Jang Uk and Jin Mu returned from the dead with the help of ice stone.
Alchemy Of Souls Season 3: Renewal Status!
Netflix’s K-drama has just dropped the second season’s final episode, which perfectly concluded the storyline. Finally, the couple got their perfect ending. But it left fans wondering whether Alchemy Of Souls Season 3 is happening. Well, it’s a genuine question that everyone wants to know. The show just ended yesterday. So it’s quite early to guess whether it will return for the third run. Netflix typically takes a couple of months to announce its decision.
The renewal status is based on audience reception and viewership. Netflix hasn’t revealed its official viewership. But the second season ended up gaining 41st position in the highest cable drama of all time. Alchemy Of Souls Season 2 garnered a rating of 9.561%. Despite the second season facing a drop in rating, it still managed to get ahead of the first season, which had a rating of 9.295%, and secured 44th place. But it remains unclear whether Alchemy Of Souls Season 3 will return.
Is It Happening?
While Netflix has yet to announce an official renewal, the story concluded peacefully. The narration was all about Jang Uk and Naksu’s love story. Both got separated in the first season but reunited in the second season. The second season finale ended with Jang Uk joining Naksu in heaven. Thus it doesn’t look like there is any plotline left to explore their story. So deeming the Alchemy Of Souls Season 2 Ep 10, it doesn’t seem like Alchemy Of Souls Season 3 will ever happen.
Alchemy Of Souls Season 3: What Will Happen Next?
The finale ended up with Jang Uk joining Naksu in heaven. However, the couple returned to the top of the highest tree on Danhyanggok. The couple appears on every full moon to help guide the people and fight against the relic. However, if the show returns with the third season, the couple will continue to fight against the relics as it hints at another looming threat. The kingdom’s King will find himself in a challenging situation after losing his friend Jang Uk. He wants to make him the Gwanju of Cheonbugwan, but it won’t happen now.
However, Seo Yul is happy as Nasku promises to help him lead Jeonjinggak. They are recruiting people, as many sacrificed their lives while fighting against the firebird. So they need new members to create their team who can support and save Danhyanggok from the impending threat. Further, the finale didn’t mention the real Bu-Yeon. She is still roaming somewhere. So perhaps the upcoming season may explore Bu-Yeon’s side of the story.
A Quick Recap!
In the season finale, Jang Uk and Naksu spent their time together as a normal couple. While the couple was happy, Jin Mu got a new body. But finally, Master Lee interfered in Jang Uk and Naksu’s life. He suggested they should marry now and witnessed the event. Naksu revealed that she wanted to be wed by her birth name Cho-Yeong. After then, the couple fulfilled their promise by climbing the tallest tree. Soon the scene shifted to Jin Mu, who wanted to take out the firebird. The Crown Prince was shocked to learn about Jin Mu’s ability. Jin Mu held Ho-gyeong by the throat and threatened her to open the door.
She had no choice but to open it. Jin Mu entered the magical chamber and took out the fire bird’s egg. Later he scathed some words leaving Cho-Yeon behind. Soon Park-jin learned about this incident and rushed to save his lover. But after learning that he needed to shut the portal before it got too late, he closed it and sealed Kim and Ho-gyeong inside. He later rushed to see Jin Mu, and it ended up in a fight. But Jin Mu stabbed his heart and left Park behind. Meanwhile, Jang Uk returned and revealed the shocking truth. Naksu was dead, and later Jang Uk used his power, merging with the seven stars’ powers to kill the firebird, sacrificing his life.
Alchemy Of Souls Season 3: Release Date
As of now, Netflix has yet to renew the show for the third season. Usually, K-dramas run only for one season. But Alchemy Of Souls ran for two seasons, which was quite impressive. But the chances of Alchemy Of Souls Season 3 are thin. But if the show returns for another season, it will take almost a year to wrap up production. So Alchemy Of Souls Season 3 may air in the fall of 2024. Stay tuned. TechRadar247 will keep you updated.
