Ha, the title is quite enough we guess. Enough to intrigue almost anyone. Guardian: The Lonely and Great God was one of the highest-rated Korean Drama from 2016. Created by Studio Dragon on a work written by Kim Eun-sook, the series was one of the highly-acclaimed K-dramas of the past decade. It garnered almost 18.68% nationwide audience share. K-drama had become a cultural phenomenon in South Korea. It went on to win a number of accolades. These included Grand Prize (Daesang) for writer Kim Eun-sook. Also the Best Actor for Gong Yoo at the 53rd Baeksang Arts Awards. After such a humongous success, all audience wanted was a second consecutive season.
Since its first season, the question has somewhat remained answered. Alteast for the most part of the time. So here we are discussing the possibility of a second season for Guardian: The Lonely and Great God and what we can expect from it.
Guardian: The Lonely and Great God follows the story of Ji Eun-Tak who accidentally releases a cursed Goblin Kim Shin. A formal military general who was framed for being a traitor and cursed with immortality. Their meeting eventually results in living together. It all goes right until deeper secrets are unraveled. Thus, new secrets upon the fact that they are not met by coincidence.

Release Date For Guardian: The Lonely and Great God
As of now in March of 2021, there is literally no new information on the renewal of Guardian: The Lonely and Great God for a second consecutive season. To be honest, there are literally no chances we will ever hear from it. Back in 2017, Gong Yoo who plays the role of Kim Shin tweeted that there will be no second season for Goblin. He stated that some stories are better if they end this way.
The first season of Guardian: The Lonely and Great God, originally ran from December 2, 2016, to January 21, 2017, on tvN. The series as of now is the fifth-highest rated Korean drama in cable television history. Koreans are clearly known for respecting art so they are not much known to renew a show quickly as it gets massive success.
So, as of now, we don’t know the creators ever want to give Goblin another shot at a second season. The one that may continue his story and relationship with Ji Eun-Tak. So, unfortunately, there will be no Guardian: The Lonely and Great God, as of now. But, that doesn’t mean we can’t discuss what we are expecting from the second season of Guardian: The Lonely and Great God. So let’s begin.

Expected Plot – Guardian: The Lonely and Great God
So, the original story of season 1 of Goblin or Guardian: The Lonely and Great God, saw Kim Shin’s backstory. A highly-praised military general who was cursed with immortality after being framed as a traitor. The only key to break his immortality and him being Goblin looking over the world for 900 years is a Goblin’s Bride.
So after almost 900 years of waiting Kim Shin meets Ji Eun-Tak and they eventually live together. But, at the end of season 1, a lot of questions were left unanswered. The end didn’t actually answer if Kim Shin and Ji Eun-Tak’s love released the curse of Kim Shin. Did the love succeed or Kim Shin is still a Goblin who was left in the air with a happy ending? A second consecutive season may have answered this question one way or another. Probably with clues that the curse is free or maybe it’s not yet. Plus, there is a lot more to work on if Kim Shin wants to break free.
The Expected Return Of Cast
Although a second season for Guardian: The Lonely and Great God is a huge “No”. But yes, there are some favorite characters we would have loved to see back on screen reprising their roles. Let’s start with the lead Gong Yooin the role of Kim Shin a.k.a. Goblin and Kim Go-Eun in the role of the Goblin’s bride, Ji Eun-Tak.
We were expecting the couple to be joined by the Gream Ripper Wang Yeo played by Lee Dong-Wook along with the Yoo In-na as Sunny (Ji Eun-Tak’s boss), and finally Yook Sung-jae as Yoo Deok-hwa, the mutual friend of Goblin and Gream Ripper.
