Fanren Xiu Xian Zhuan: Modao Zhengfeng, also known as A Record of a Mortal’s Journey to Immortality Season 2, or simply known as The Mortal Cultivation 2 will continue the action-packed adventure towards the peak of the cultivation world. A story of an ordinary cultivator and how his cleverness had brought him to glory despite keeping a low-profile life and how he survived arduous challenges despite being an average guy, and not the typical gifted or talented main character that we often have for a cultivation (xinxia) story.
A Record of a Mortal’s Journey to Immortality Season 2
Many fans had been anxiously waiting for this since the donghua had left us all abruptly. The series had first premiered during the summer of 2020 and eventually returned for a 3-episode special in January of 2021. However, it feels like that the donghua had concluded its 1st season and special episodes while hinting that there’s more to the story that fans should watch out for but haven’t left any new updates until recently. A few days ago, the production committee had made an announcement leaving the fans to speculate for A Record of A Mortal’s Journey to Immortality Season 2 which had been confirmed yesterday along with an announcement for a new key visual and a promotional video.
Animation Studio and Release Date
Original Force is returning as the animation studio for the series and they teamed up with Wanmei Mao Animation. Bilibili also returns as a producer together with Mopi.
The Mortal Cultivation Season 2 release date is slated on November 14, 2021 and the donghua had been scheduled for 26 episodes which will end on May 1, 2022.

The donghua was adapted from a xinxia novel of the same title by author Wang Yu which was published in 2008 with 2451 chapters in total. It shares the same universe with various xinxia novels such as Demon’s Diary, The Portal of Wonderland, and its sequel, A Record of a Mortal’s Journey to Immortality – Immortal World Arc.
A poor and ordinary boy from a village joins a minor sect in Jiang Hu and becomes an Unofficial Disciple by chance. How will Han Li, a commoner by birth, establish a foothold for himself in his sect? With his mediocre aptitude, he must successfully traverse the treacherous path of cultivation and avoid the notice of those who may do him harm. This is a story of an ordinary mortal who, against all odds, clashes with devilish demons and ancient celestials to find his path towards immortality.Source: Wuxia World
