Fans have a little more to wait for the much-anticipated second season.
According to a news report, the schedule for the second season of “The Three Musketeers” is still under discussion. The cable channel tvN, on which the series is aired, told news outlet My Daily on November 3, “The first season has just concluded on Sunday after 12 episodes and we are now discussing the second one. However, we do not yet have concrete plans for the schedule airing of second season.”
In an earlier press conference for “The Three Musketeers,” writer Song Jae Jung had said, “‘The Three Musketeers’ is planned for three seasons and I have already fixed up the storyline.” This drama was a piece of work that writer Song had considered even before working on “Nine,” her other well-received drama in tandem with director Kim Byung Soo.
“We’re looking to finalize plans for Season 3 within the year. Season 2 has the Chinese part of history as background,” she added.
“The Three Musketeers” is a fusion historical drama that adapts the Alexandre Dumas novel of romance, intrigue and adventures in the French royal court into the Joseon era.
On the 12th and final episode of the first season, the Crown Prince So Hyun (played by Lee Jin Wook) and Crown Princess Kang Bin (Seo Hyun Jin) have come together to realize their love. The episode also marked the Second Manchu Invasion and a two-year time leap, ending with The Three Musketeers, namely Crown Prince So Hyun, Heo Seung Po (Yang Dong Geun) and Ahn Min Seo (Jung Hae In) reuniting with Park Dal Hyang (Jung Yong Hwa). In other events, the assumed dead Miryung (Yoo In Young) came back and has opened the possibility of coming back as “the King’s woman” and creating more complications in the second season.
