After the successful stint of the series in 2020, Heaven Official’s Blessing Season 2 has been highly awaited by many donghua and danmei fans all these years. Finally, almost 3 years later, an update is scheduled to be released about it by its production committee this October, triggering many fans to think that Heaven Official’s Blessing Season 2 might be released this fall.
