Remember that incredible saga that had us all glued to our screens a couple of years back? The one that made us laugh, cry, and clench our fists in righteous anger? Yes, you guessed it – Pachinko is back. Based on Min Jin Lee's bestselling novel, Pachinko kept us hooked with its sweeping saga spanning four generations. Pachinko Season 2 promises to deliver more of the same, exploring themes of love, loss, and the enduring human spirit in the face of adversity.

We journeyed with the indomitable Sunja (seriously, can we all channel her strength, please?), saw love blossom and hearts break across generations, and felt the sting of prejudice and displacement.

So, let's get ready to rumble, the next season of the Apple TV+ series, we'll be following the next chapter in the story of the Sunja family. We'll see how their lives unfold across continents and decades, facing new challenges and forging their destinies. Will they find peace and prosperity? Will love conquer all?
