Recap of My Love From the Star Season 1
My love From The Star Season 1 started off in a Joseon era setting, depicting King Gwanghae’s first year of ruling in 1609. Suddenly, a flying mysterious object appeared in the sky and caused everyone to gossip about the unfamiliar object.
A young widow was then seen in a stretcher and was taken into a procession. However, the stretcher was trapped inside a whirlwind and was thrown into the edge of a mountain. And then, as if time stopped, a mysterious person managed to save the widow as she was about to fall from the edge.
The setting then changes back to the modern era, showing the mysterious figure before an unexpected interview audience. He began talking about his background as an alien and how he came to Earth. Yes, Do Min-Joon (Kim Soo-Hyun) was an alien that came to earth 400 years ago and has never left the castle. However, he will be able to leave the castle in four months as a comet is approaching earth in 400 years. We can also see the female protagonist, Cheon Song-Yi (Jeon Ji-Hyun), who was a well-known model and actress who was always heavily trolled and criticized by netizens for being ignorant.
However, unexpectedly, Do Min-Joo and Cheo Song-Yi turn out to be searching each other as they both were each other’s first love. Song-Yi also moved next to Min-Joon but they did not meet under good circumstances. Through a series of events, Song-Yi and Min-Joon starts falling in love. At the same time, Song-Yi’s popularity started to decline as she was accused of murdering a well-known actress, Han Yoo-Ra (Yoo In-Young).
The main antagonist of the story is Lee Jae-Kyung (Shin Sung-Rok). Jae-Kyung made an attempt to murder Song-Yi. Min-Joon also revealed his alien identity to protect Song-Yi from people that threatened her. Min-Joon also realizes that Song-Yi is the person he has been waiting and searching for for numerous generations. However, he will also disappear if he does not quickly leave earth.

If My Love From the Star season 2 is released, it is most likely that the actors and actresses from season 1 will participate in the second season. Fans also hope that they can do the project together again and play as the main leads in the second season. However, this also does not mean that there will be no new cast members added to the team.
My Love From the Star Season 2: Possible Release Date
Until today, there is no official announcement regarding the continuation of My Love From the Star. Apart from that, there is still no news, clues, or information about the show coming back for another season.

My Love From the Star Season 1 leaves an open ending for more stories to take place. Everything gets covered in the first season other than the return of Min-Joon. But, it also shows his attempts to come back. One day he will definitely come back. The finale seems completed. Hence, it seems like My Love from Another Star won’t come back for another season.
