Yeah, Grandmaster of Demonic Cultivation is coming back for its second season in August 2019. Well, we are all excited for Wei Wuxian and Lan Wangji, as well as the rest of our favorite cultivators to come back when Grandmaster of Demonic Cultivation season 2 had been announced right after its first season concluded last September. In exactly, one year since its premiere, the Chinese anime that strike 2018 by surprise is returning to continue the story of vengeance and to uncover the greater conspiracy that revolved around the death of the Yiling patriarch himself.
Well, Grandmaster of Demonic Cultivation is 2018’s best Chinese anime on our list and we couldn’t be happier to see it back and continue its great start.
In the teaser trailer for Grandmaster of Demonic Cultivation season 2, we had seen different characters from the story fighting for their lives and the survival of their loved ones. On a very tragic note, we had seen Jin Zixuan and Jiang Yanli not in a very good state, so it seems that their demise might be cover in the upcoming season of the anime. Furthermore, it seems that fans should expect the upcoming season to be total bloodshed with too much drama, actions, killings, and insanity. We may finally see the reasons why the Yiling Patriarch had been banished by his former colleagues and who’s the culprit from behind this conspiracy.

For those who are not familiar with Grandmaster of Demonic Cultivation, the following is the anime’s synopsis:
As the grandmaster who founded the Demonic Sect, Wei Wuxian roamed the world in his wanton ways, hated by millions for the chaos he created. In the end, he was backstabbed by his dearest shidi and killed by powerful clans that combined to overpower him. He incarnates into the body of a lunatic who was abandoned by his clan and is later, unwillingly, taken away by a famous cultivator among the clans—Lan Wangji, his archenemy. This marks the start of a thrilling yet hilarious journey of attacking monsters, solving mysteries, and raising children. From the mutual flirtation along the way, Wei Wuxian slowly realizes that Lan Wangji, a seemingly haughty and indifferent poker-face, holds more feelings for Wei Wuxian than he is letting on.
