After today’s big finale on Apple TV+, can we expect a Dr. Brain season 2? Or have we reached the end of the road for this series?
Sadness can change a person just as it can change the talented brain scientist Lee Sun Kyun. Korean shows are getting more and more popular from time to time. First, the drama vagabond then Squid game, a Korean drama that appeared in Netflix’s top ten most watched list. The same can happen with newly released series. Written by Kim Jee-Woon, the sci-fi thriller Dr. Brain was released on Apple+ on November 4, 2021. Based on the Korean webtoon of the same name, the series is about a brain scientist who tries to help a deceased relative by looking into the brain of a dead victim. Will the series return for a second season?
For now, we should note here that nothing is 100% official. However, there is a reason to be optimistic. This sci-fi was partly timed with the launch of the streaming service in South Korea, and it was a significant step towards expanding internationally. We don’t think we need to explain in 2021 the impact of South Korean entertainment, both in its home country and around the world. Just consider the massive success of Squid Game or the US adaptations of Korean shows like The Good Doctor and The Masked Singer. We think Apple wants to continue producing content that appeals to the South Korean market while also understanding its potential to release in other parts of the world.
Since the show is so short, it also raises the possibility that season 2. if renewed, it could return at some point in 2022—though we’re far from being able to confirm anything. The first step is for the show to start production. From there, Apple can show more of their schedule and decide further what will work for them in the long run.
Dr. Brain Season 2 Release Date
Every creator and fans that invested in this drama hopes that the series they enjoy watching is renewed for a second season. The first episode debuted on November 4, 2021, to coincide with the launch of Apple TV+ in South Korea. With episodes dropping every week, we expect the final episode of the sci-fi thriller to be released on November 9, 2021.
Official announcements regarding a series update have yet to be announced. With just three episodes out, the series has a rating of 7.7/10 on IMDb, which is a good sign. With the trend going higher, we can expect it to release in 2022 or sometime in 2023.
Dr. Brain Season 2: Expected Plot
In the third episode of Dr. Brain Season 1, we see the surgeon reveal Lee Kang Mu. The detective’s real identity raises questions because he could be the unknown man that Se Won talked about when his brain was examined.
Won asks to meet with Hong Nam to get an answer as to why he chose Lee Kang Mu’s body and not someone else’s. In the fourth episode, we expect answers to whether the new character has anything to do with Lim Jun Ki’s murder and the disappearance of Heejin and Do Yoon. We hope that episode four reveals a picture of Hee Jin; who is the woman he drew? We can also get to know more about Do Yoon’s whereabouts.
Dr. Brain Season 2 Cast
Once the series is updated, we can expect it to feature its original cast. Lee SunKyun plays Koh SeWon, a brain scientist who focuses on solving the mystery of his family’s death. The award-winning actor has acted in several series including “Helpless,” “All About My Wife,” and the crime comedy “A Hard Day.” Park Hee Soon plays Lee KangMu, a private detective. Lee YooYoung plays Jung Jae Yi ( SeWon’s wife), Lee JaeWon plays Hong Namil (SeWon’s partner).We should expect a new cast to be featured in the upcoming episodes as well as the second season.
Dr. Brain Season 2 Trailer
The second season trailer is not out yet. The first season had a trailer and teaser that gave a preview of what to expect. The official trailer released by Apple TV shows how a minor has a unique brain but later grows up to become a brain scientist. A woman who was shot gave the trailer more tension. With different memories flooding the surgeon’s mind at once, will he be able to decipher the tragedy behind his family’s death? Be sure to watch the series as it airs every Thursday on Apple TV.
