Hwang Dong-hyuk said, “I do have a basic storyline for season two. It’s all in my head, and I am currently in the brainstorming stage. It will happen someday, but as for when I cannot tell you the details.”
“I felt the pressure for another season-long before I arrived in Los Angeles. We get on YouTube and see people that have already written season two and season three for us. Coming here and seeing how well-received the show and how much the fans want it, I have been getting the same question by the press as well.” added Hwang.
