In this series, Lee Yeon is transported to the year 1938, where he encounters his estranged brother Lee Rang and his old nemesis Ryu Hong-joo, who have their own agendas and secrets. 

The season finale has just aired, and it is a blast! However, the following season promises to be even more exciting. Let’s see what season 3 might have in store for us!

Tale of the Nine-Tailed 1938 episode 12 is a roller coaster of emotions that leaves us breathless and craving for more. However, it has many unanswered questions, and the post-credit scenes raise our curiosity bar even higher!

So, how will things shape up in the next season? Let’s get Sherlocking without further ado!

Season 3 will take us to another era, the Joseon dynasty, where Yeon will face a new set of challenges. The balance of the world will again switch hands, and it will be on our beloved hero to restore equilibrium. 

Just like the first two seasons, season 3 will also revolve around one central question: Will Yeon be able to reunite with Ji-ah and protect her from mortal peril? Again?

Season 2 ends with Yeon returning to 2023 and uniting with Ji-ah in a heartwarming conclusion. Will circumstances let them be together in season 3? Only time will tell us about that!

Elsewhere, Rang will need to overcome his dark past and find happiness with Yoo-ri in season 3. Hopefully, he will defeat his mental demons (besides the physical ones!) and find the courage to make peace with himself.

Finally, there are two significant open-ends that the makers need to answer in season 3.

Will Taluipa regain her powers and restore order in the afterlife? We still don’t know anything about her thousand-mile eyes, which have been stolen by the demon pretending to be Ho-gyeong. 

Also, what is the role of the mysterious figure who seems to be pulling the strings behind the scenes? Nothing is said about the identity of the ‘fourth Mountain God.’ Who will be the main puppeteer in season 3? 

All these questions and more will be answered in the thrilling third season of Tale of the Nine-Tailed, which promises to be an unforgettable adventure that will keep us on the edge of our seats. Don’t miss it when it comes out!
