JTBC announced on September 27 that it has decided to produce seasons 2 and 3 of the tvN drama 'Tale of the Nine-Tailed.'
According to reports, there were talks of future season production even when the drama first aired and was completed. Finally, there has been confirmation that the future seasons will be produced. However, it was finalized that Jo Bo Ah, who was the female lead in 'Tale of the Nine-Tailed,' will not participate in the upcoming seasons.
The production staff confirmed they have begun their casting process to cast a new female lead, and the upcoming seasons will take place in the past. Season 2 will occur during the Japanese colonial period, while season 3 will be a fusion historical drama in the Joseon era.
Netizens gave a mixed reaction to this news about the female lead being switched out in the upcoming season. Some netizens commented, "Why are they switching the female lead," "I watched because of Jo Bo Ah," "I wonder if the drama would be good if the female lead changes," "What's going to happen if the female lead changes?" and "What is going on?"
Other netizens responded, "I think it's okay that the female lead changes since the story is in the past," "It's weirder that the female lead is the same when the timeline is in the past," "I don't think it matters if the female lead changes since it's in the past," and, "I think it'll be okay if there is no love line."
