Cheng and An-Ya use dream technology, which opens the door to human dreams, to discover the realities behind a number of complex crimes and events that unfold in the city in succession.
HBO Asia’s first Sci-fi series premiered in August 2020 in Asia, before being released in the US in February 2022. The Taiwanese series has garnered great acclaim from critics and audiences alike, especially for its intriguing narratives, production design, and performance. After an impressive first season, fans of the game and the science fiction genre should look forward to its Dream Raider Season 2.
Dream Raider Season 2 Episode 1 Release Date
Dream Raider Season 1 was first released in the United States on February 17, 2022, on HBO Max. Prior to its release in the US, season 1 was first shown on August 16, 2020, in Asia. The first season has 8 episodes with a watching time of about 50 minutes each.
About the Dream Raider Season 2, HBO Asia or HBO Max have not yet released an official statement regarding the revival of Dream Raider Season 2. Season 1 concludes with a dramatic revelation, leaving the Dream Raider Season 2.
The first season also leaves a number of questions about the fate of the main characters unanswered, including the possible relationship between Li Xiao and An-Ya.
According to Ellen Wu, starring one of the characters Cheng An-Ya, the series could be a powerful second season. In an interview given after its release in Asia, the actor expressed his desire to see his character’s relationship with his father explored in the future. If the program is able to gain impressive viewers on HBO Max, the decision to update the program may be unreasonable. If it is updated soon, we can expect Dream Raider Season 2 will release in 2023.
Dream Raider Season 2: Cast & Characters
If it is revived, we can expect the inevitable return of the top three players, Weber Yang as Li Xiao, Shih-Sian Wang as Cheng Tian-Li, and Ellen Wu as Cheng An-Ya. We can expect Cheng-Chun Chung as Xie Xiao-Yu, Aggie Hsieh as Che Na, Bella Wu as Li Ke, Tzu-Chiang Wang as Captain Zhang, Duncan Lai as Hank, and Vivian Hsu as Li Li-An to come back again.
After the death of their characters in season 1, David Yao-Qing Wang as Mo Qi-Feng, Ke-Xi Wu as Belle, and Jun Kunimura as Mr. Watanabe may not return for the Dream Raider Season 2.
Dream Raider Season 2: Plot
The first season of the program ends with a surprise as Qi-Feng tries his best to open the gate to the Cave of Awareness so that his wife Li-An can return to the real world. Although a scientist gathers the emotions of thousands of people to complete his experiments, he fails miserably and his efforts end in death. After Qi-Feng’s death, Cheng reconciles with An-Ya, opening a hollow hole so that the sensory engineer can return to the real world.
However, Li-An decides to stay behind the abyss. As the father and daughter celebrate their reunion, Li Xiao apologizes to his daughter, who is on her way to Singapore, and Li’s ex-wife and new partner. Just before the end of the season, Li-An opens his eyes, showing that he is back in the real world.
If renewed, the second season could prove that Li-An is truly back in the real world. If he does, we can expect a Dream Raider Season 2 to reveal the reasons for Li-An’s change of heart. An-Ya may meet Li Xiao, who may be facing the absence of her daughter in her life. With the untrue fact of Qi-Feng’s death exposed, Cheng may not return to prison and spend time with his daughter. We can also expect the three of Cheng, An-Ya, and Li Xiao to continue to use dream invasion technology to solve complex crimes in the Dream Raider Season 2.
