The production team revealed, “Because we received a heated response from the viewers and achieved good results, we want to do a second season. However, as there are many matters to consider, nothing is confirmed, and we’re currently in discussion.”
In an interview, Kim Nam-Gil said, “The crew were talking about Season 2 from about Episode 17 or 18. It wasn’t a drama that we made with seasons in mind. When we went on our reward vacation, the actors talked about it among ourselves and the response was positive. We said that we wanted to move forward without any of us leaving and without adding someone else to the cast.”
He resumed, “It’s true that I have a lot of concerns about what I can show and what we can bring to a second season. We didn’t really have a lot of expectations for the ratings in ‘The Fiery Priest,’ but it did well. I think Season 2 will be about properly telling the stories that we want to tell. We mentioned that we didn’t want to wait too long. But that’s not something that we can control…”
