HBO Asia’s science-fiction show “Dream Raider” is about Professor Cheng and his daughter, An-Ya. They work with detective Li Xiao to solve a series of mysterious crimes in which the victims’ minds are hacked, and they help each other out. When Cheng and An-Ya want to know the truth about a lot of mysterious crimes and things that happen in the city, they use “dream raiding” technology, which allows people to go into their dreams. HBO Asia’s first sci-fi show premiered in Asia in August 2020, before it was released in the US in February 2022. The Taiwanese series was a huge hit with both critics and viewers, especially for its gripping story, production design, and actors.
After an awe-inspiring first season, fans of the show and the science-fiction genre must be excited about its second season. Then, here is everything you need to know!
Dream Raider Season 2 Release Date: When It Will Air?
‘Dream Raider’ season 1 came out in full in the United States on HBO Max on February 17, 2022. Season 1 premiered in Asia on August 16, 2020, before it came to the US. The first season has eight episodes that each last about 45 minutes. Here’s what we know about the second season. HBO Asia or HBO Max have not yet made an official statement about whether or not “Dream Raider” will be back for a second season. However, the sci-fi show could come back for another season. At the end of Season 1, an amazing thing happens, which makes it possible for there to be a second season. The first season also leaves a lot of questions about the futures of the main characters unanswered, like what might happen between Li Xiao and An-Ya.
Ellen Wu, who plays Cheng An-Ya, says that the show has a lot of potential for a second season. An interview with the actress took place after it was released in Asia. She said that she would like to see her character’s relationship with her father be explored in the future. If the show gets a lot of attention on HBO Max, the decision to keep the show may be a no-brainer. If “Dream Raider” is renewed soon, we can expect season 2 to come out in Q1 2023.
Dream Raider Season 2 Expected Cast
As long as the show is kept going, we can expect Shih-Sian Wang to play Cheng Tian-Li, Weber Yang to play Li Xiao, and Ellen Wu to play Ellen (Cheng An-Ya). They’ll also be back: Aggie Hsieh, Cheng-Chun Chung, Tzu Chiang Wang, Tzu-Chiang Wang, Bella Wu, Vivian Hsu, Duncan Lai, and Hank will all be back. It’s possible that David Yao-Qing Wang (Mo Qi-Feng), Ke-Xi Wu (Belle), and Jun Kunimura (Mr. Watanabe) won’t be back in the possible season 2.

Dream Raider Season 2 Expected Plotline
The first season of the show ends astoundingly as Qi-Feng tries his best to open the gate of the Abyss of Consciousness for his wife Li-An to come back to the real world. Even though the scientist garners the nerve impulses of thousands of individuals to complete his experiment, he fails miserably and his efforts end with his death. After Qi-Feng’s death, Cheng reconciles with An-Ya, which opens the Abyss for the neural engineer to return to the real world.
However, Li-An decides to stay back in the Abyss. When the father and daughter cherish their togetherness, Li Xiao bids adieu to his daughter, who leaves for Singapore with Li’s ex-wife and her new partner. Right before the end of the season, Li-An opens her eyes, indicating her come back to the real world.
If renewed, the second season may clarify whether Li-An really comes back to the real world. If she does, we can expect the potential sophomore season to portray the reasons behind Li-An’s change of heart. An-Ya may get together with Li Xiao, who may deal with his daughter’s absence in his life. Since the truth behind Qi-Feng’s fake death is unraveled, Cheng may not return to prison and spend his time with his daughter. We can also expect the trio of Cheng, An-Ya, and Li Xiao to continue using the dream raiding technology to solve ambiguous crimes in the potential second season.
