Kdrama has become quite famous all over the world in the past few years. Goblin, also known as ‘Guardian: The Lonely and Great God – Goblin’, is another Kdrama series. Goblin became one of the highest-rated shows of all time.
Kim Eun-sook writes it, and it is directed by Lee Eung-bok, Kwon Hyuk-chan, and Yoon Jong-ho. The show concluded its first season in 2017, and since then, the fans have been waiting for the next installment eagerly.

Goblin Season 2 Trailer
As of now, the trailer for season two has not been released. However, you can watch the trailer for the first installment below.
When will Goblin season 2 release? Premiere Date
The first season of Goblin was released four years ago, which seemed to be a normal Korean Drama. But surprisingly, it became a worldwide hit amongst the viewers. The audience was thrilled with the twists and turns it brought.
After being such a huge success, it was expected that another season would be on the cards. The viewers were convinced that there would be another installment when Gong Yoo mentioned in his interview, “Your ‘Guardian’ days are not over yet.”
However, in 2017 Gong Yoo tweeted, saying that Goblin season two won’t happen. Since installment one concluded the premise of the story, the possibility of the second installment was pretty low. In the future, if the makers decide to change their minds, we will let you know. (check: Bofuri Season 2.)
