Season 1 was received very well by the audience and in the four years since it released, they haven’t stopped asking for a second season, despite the show facing criticism for its performance, direction, and screenplay. Despite the criticism, it received an 8.6/10 rating in IMDb and has shown a good mix of emotions, power, politics and characters with different objectives. We get to see the ugly side of the otherwise beautiful royal family, and we see the lead heroine, who becomes a big part of the story, being used as a pawn by some of the members in their lust for power.

Die-hard fans of the show even filed online petitions asking production studio SBS to bring it back. Lee Joon-gi, one of the leads, gave a hint that he will be returning with co-star Lee Ji-Eun but afterwards, there were no updates regarding the show from the actors or studio. Even if it were to happen, it won’t be until 2022.
