The post Will there be a season 3 of Alchemy of Souls? [Update Jan 9] first appeared on Ready Steady Cut.

We discuss whether there will be a season 3 of the Netflix K-Drama series Alchemy of Souls and its renewed or canceled status.

Picking up three years from where we left off, alchemy of souls season 2 focused on the mighty monster hunter at Jang UK (Lee Jae-wook) unique relationship with Jin Bu-yeon (Ko Yoon-jung)who turns out to have the soul of Naksu inside of her (although until episode 8, neither of the two main protagonists knew about it).

That, and the continuing threat of Jin Mu (Jo Jae-yoon), who still hasn’t learned his lesson and now wishes to summon another Ice Stone and claim Jinyowon, also remains in the forefront. Of course, there’s a lot more going on around Daeho – Seo Yul (Hwang Min Hyun) nearly died but ended up having the blood parasite safely removed, So I who died trying to save him, the crown prince realigned himself with the Gwanju, Kim maid is to marry Jin Parkand Dang-gu made with Cho-yeon – making sure season two was action-packed.

Nevertheless, it divided public opinion. Some have been invested in how things end, intrigued by the many procedural changes, and excited to see how Jang Uk finds out that Naksu is still alive, in addition to how Jin Mu and co. get their reward. Others, however, have been disconnected, feeling like the mood of the show has changed in ways they no longer care about.

Whichever side of the fence you sit on, it’s undeniable alchemy of souls season 2 made the buzz. He has spent the last two weeks inside Netflix’s Global Top 10 (like the season 1in all fairness), climbing all the way to #5, with a particularly impressive 15,060,000 hours watched between December 19 and 25.

Here’s what we had to say: “Obasically then, alchemy of souls season two has an element of both past and present, a quality that makes it feel both completely unique from the first episode and equal parts familiar. […] It would be wise to avoid skipping the final chapter of this story, especially if you were a fan of what you saw this summer.

Will there be season 3 of alchemy of souls – renewed or canceled status

There has been no confirmation from Netflix yet as to whether there will be a season 3 of alchemy of souls.

Although nothing has been fully confirmed, alchemy of souls season 2 seems to be the end of the series. It’s not exactly a huge surprise, considering there will have been a total of 30 episodes, and the Hong sisters have told the story in such a way that it almost has to end once the threat of Jin Mu was put down and Naksu’s fate was finally dealt with. Plus, a second season is already a rarity in K-Dramas, so it’s likely the opportunity was taken to wrap things up here without the need for additional renewals.

However, you really can never rule something out until it’s official. However, with alchemy of souls with season 2 garnering a more mixed reception than season 1, slightly worse television ratings, and telling a story that seems tailor-made for an exciting and decisive ending to come in the upcoming finale, it would be wise to bet it would is the last time we will visit Daeho.

How popular is Alchemy of Souls now?

you would think soul alchemy Season 2 would not top what its predecessor did in the ratings. However, season 2 ended with a rating of 9.651%, placing it 41st among all-time cable dramas and just ahead of season 1, which had a rating of 9.295% and 44th place.
