Hongjun and Jinglong together with the rest of the Ministry of Exorcism are returning for the Tian Bao Fuyao Lu or Legend of Tang Season 2 in 2021. There’s no doubt that Tian Bao Fuyao Lu has been one of the most talked-about Chinese anime of 2020 especially for fans outside of China. First, it was based on a boys-love novel, a genre which seems to have plenty of followers outside of China and the reasons why other boys-love donghua such as The Grandmaster of Demonic Cultivation, Scumbag System, and Heaven Official’s Blessing are popular.

Everybody is simply excited to hear the news that the Legend of Tang Season 2 has been officially announced and confirmed during the bilibili event last November 21 which unveiled their 2020-2021 Chinese anime lineup. In fact, aside from the Legend of Tang Season 2, other Chinese anime that aired this 2020 from bilibili such as the Manual of Hundred Demons, The Daily Life of the Immortal King, and Carp Reborn are all coming back in 2021 for another season.

In regards to the Legend of Tang Season 2 release, we don’t have a specific date yet, however, we can expect that bilibili will either release it in the summer or fall 2021 seasonal lineup.
During the event, a short teaser trailer for Legend of Tang Season 2 was also unveiled as shown below.
Fans must be anxiously waiting for the donghua’s return especially knowing how the first season ended in such a cliffhanger. Now, we are all craving for more, and even without season 2 officially announced, fans are already speculating about it right when the first season concluded. Personally, I only had my attention keep on Mo Rigen, one of the main characters from the series, and Hongjun’s hot demonic uncle – the Phoenix demon.
The donghua was based on the novel Tian Bao Fuyao Lu by author Fei Tian Ye Xiangand animated by Sparkly Key Animation Studio. For our readers who are not familiar with Legend of Tang yet, here’s its synopsis for your reference:
In the twelve years of Tianbao, Kong Hongjun, a handsome young man who is not familiar with the world, left the Yaojin Palace on the Taihang Mountain with three important tasks and came to Chang’an, which is full of prosperity. Kong Hongjun first entered the Datang Exorcism Division, and the head supervisor was actually Long Wujun general Li Jinglong who had dealt with it not long ago. But he accidentally broke Chen’s heart lamp, and the heart lamp entered Li Jinglong’s body. In the light and shadow of the lamp, there are the bright red lights of Pingkangli, the exorcism of the sycamore in the summer sunshine, the vast sky and sand and flying snow, the peaceful singing of Artai. Mo Rigen and Lu Xu picked off early morning leaves, Qiu Yongsi’s flying strokes.
