American Born Chinese Season 2: Release Date, Cast, Plot, and More
American Born Chinese, the coming-of-age series premiered on Disney+, has left viewers craving for more. The series is based on the graphic novel with the same title, written by Gene Luen Yang. Is American Born Chinese coming back for season 2?
So, when can we expect American Born Chinese season 2 to land on Disney+? Unfortunately, Disney+ hasn’t announced an official release date yet. The pandemic has caused massive delays and disruptions in the production of films and TV shows, so it’s challenging to predict when season 2 will be released. However, if the series receives a season-two renewal, we can expect to watch it in 2024-2025.

Fans can expect the following characters to be in season 2:
Ben Wang as Jin Wang

Plot: What Will Happen in Season 2?
We can expect the second season of American Born Chinese to pick up where the last season left off. Jin Wang saved both Heaven and Earth from Niu Mowang, the Bull Demon, and became the Fourth Scroll. However, his heroic actions led to unforeseen consequences, and Jin’s parents were kidnapped by a powerful being from Wei-Chen’s world. Jin received an ultimatum – come with me if you want to see your parents again.
In season 2, Jin will continue to explore his identity, and it will unfold what it means to be the Fourth Scroll. He is expected to unlock powers he never thought he could have, which may be the key to getting his parents back. Moreover, the Jade Emperor won’t be able to contain Niu Mowang forever, meaning that the Petty “cow-baby” could come back for revenge against Jin. Wei Chen won’t leave Jin to deal with an enraged Bull-demon alone, and he will undoubtedly join him to fight off the demons.
