Inspired by a webtoon, the series follows the thrilling adventures of demon hunters known as “counters.” They disguise themselves as noodle restaurant employees, battling demons in their quest for eternal life. The 2020 drama set a new ratings record for OCN during its initial run. The upcoming season brings back the original 5 counters who have grown stronger with newfound abilities and new members.

Reprising their lead roles, viewers can expect to see Jo Byeong Gyu as So Moon, Yoo Joon Sang as Ga Mo Tak, Kim Sejeong as Do Ha Na, Yeom Hye Ran as Choo Mae Ok, and Ahn Suk Hwan as Choi Jang Mool.

Yoo Joon Sang enthusiastically said, “Let’s go to season seven together.”

The upgraded powers, improved teamwork, and lively banter among So Moon, Ga Mo Tak, Do Ha Na, Choo Mae Ok, and Choi Jang Mool promise great fun within the adrenaline-filled narrative.

The producers of tvN’s “The Uncanny Counter 2” shared their excitement. “A battle will unfold between the counters, who have become stronger with the addition of new powers. And the demons, who have become more malevolent after absorbing the counters’ abilities,” they revealed.

They added, “In addition to the unique charm of Season 1, we have elevated the visuals and action sequences, promising a maximum level of exhilaration with an expanded scale and universe in ‘The Uncanny Counter 2’.”
