Has Different Princess been renewed for Season 2? Here’s what we know:

Renewed Or Cancelled?

Different Princess is the latest C-drama from the Chinese network Youku which is known for exciting and thrilling shows like Derailment, Hidden Love and Love is Panacea. This fun fantasy drama premiered in January 2024 and has a whopping 36 episodes.

The C-drama stars Ireine Song as Hua Qing Ge and Ding Ze Ren as Ji Chu. Alongside them, the ensemble cast includes Zhu Rong Jun, Sun Zu Jun, Zhang Yue Nan, Chen Ze, Wang Jun Zhe and Ni Mei Shi.

So, while watching season 1, you may be wondering if this has been renewed or cancelled. Here’s what we know:

What is Different Princess about?

Different Princess is a magical drama that makes us wonder if we too can end up in ancient China. It begins with Hua Qing Ge, a writer suddenly becoming a character in a novel full of political intrigue, thriller and betrayal. And of course, since she has written the story, one would think she would be able to control the outcome, right?

But that doesn’t seem to be the case as she ends up falling for someone her character shouldn’t – the murderous Ji Chu instead of the male lead.

Has Different Princess been renewed for season 2?

At the time of writing, Different Princess has not been renewed for season 2.

While the C-drama industry is changing its format, we are yet to see multiple season shows. The appeal of Chinese dramas is the fact that they have one long season with the full story and give us a satisfactory or at least a complete ending. This seems to be changing albeit gradually.

There have been dramas like Joy of Life, Nirvana In Fire and Chinese Paladin getting sequels thanks to their roaring success. But they just may be an exception. It is unlikely that we will get Different Princess season 2 at the moment, especially since Youku C-drama sequels are a little rare.

What we know about season 2 so far:

Nothing is known since season 2 has not been greenlit. But if we do get a season 2 for Different Princess, it would be fun to see more of the characters and their misadventures with Hua Qing Ge at the helm. A sequel could also explore the lives of the other characters as leads such as Lin Xi Yao, Ji Yun or even Ji Wan Er. It is probably unlikely but we would also love to see an original story play out in full before Hua Qing Ge took over.


Of course, this is all speculation as there has been no official news regarding a second season. Keep an eye out for this section as we will update readers if there is any news.

  1. We NEED Season 2, please author and Youku, we’re desperate to see more Qing and Ji Chu’s Love story🙏🏻 Different Princess was really a masterpiece💞✨

  2. We need season 2. Why?! Bcuz this is something very requested from maaaany people .Just imagine how many views and fame will this Chinese drama get if there will be a season two . I mean at least I will literally appreciate that a lot . I know there might be no season two cuz nobody from the official characters is talking about that but the ending is like to complicated for me .HQ meets Chu in her world SOOO … Then he asks like do you really live me and HQ just looks at him with a sad face I guess and chu is also looking sad . LIKE PLZ season 2 pleeeeeasee I will kiss the authors toes if he makes sense two I promise just like who doesn’t want season two?!
    Please author of this cdrama plz plz plz

  3. there must be a season 2 because the ending is not clear, and to continue the love between the two protagonists in the modern world and how Ji Chu ended up in Hua Qingge’s world, and I hope that in the season 2 Ji Wan er will live and Gongge Qi will meet again .

  4. Yes we are waiting for season 2..i watched everyday this drama on youku, hua qingge & jichu deserves happy ending 😍😍
    I loved so much this drama…

  5. Im in love with this amazing series, wonderful actors, figurine, production, scenery, photography.. everything. Plot….

  6. We really need a second season of Different Princess, because in season 1 the ending like that really hit and attracted the attention of the audience so they waited for season 2. I need more Qing and Ji Chu, please.

  7. Indeed we all want another season although i hate the fact that just for opening a way for second season they destroyed the ending… It Breaks my heart that ji chu and gongee qi both were unlucky in love .. Like why it has too be like this.. I can’t beard the site of ji chu being all alone till his death in the novel world and gongee qi was too emerged in pain and grief of losing his wife and unborn child …. I hate that just for them to meet in current world for like 2 minutes the destroyed the complete journey with the Cursed ending.. I still love the over all journey excluding the ending and I want this drama to be a great success because the actors slayed the characters ( they are actual reason why the journey hits so hard… Loved them and wish them great success ahead) if someone is wandering whether to watch this drama or not I recommend to just watch it but if you are someone like me who hate sad ending then brace yourself or else stop at 33th ep…

  8. I fell for this drama from the trailer and I like the fact that it’s different. It’s refreshing and does a great job invoking the “what ifs” in the genre of fantasy. The ending was somewhat expected but it felt like the right thing to do, that said, it’s one they used that more so lean on a 2nd season. Whilst awaiting on any news for a continued story, I will rewatch this show wholeheartedly! Thus, a continuation is much appreciated ❤️🖤

  9. Yes we need season 2 because they left off where they see each other again and he pretty much knows who she is. Season 2 should be where his in her world and they should be left off where they are married and more adventure with them.

  10. We most definitely need a Season 2. Cause what kind of ending was that. Season 2 can take place in modern times. I need more with Qing and Ji Chu
