Based on the fourth book Scavenger 清道夫, popular Sohu-produced web drama Dr. Qin Medical Examiner 法医秦明2: 清道夫 is returning for a second season, and stars Liu Dongqin (I’m Not A Monster) as Qin Ming, Liu Chang (Women in Beijing) as cop-buddy Lin Tao and Yu Shasha (The Imperial Doctress) as Qin Ming’s quirky new assistant Chen Shiyu.
I’m a bit disappointed the original cast couldn’t return, but this teaser looks pretty good.
All the murder cases lead the trio to a mysterious killer known only as the ‘Scavenger’, who specifically targets the wanderers and misfits of the city. Season 2 is scheduled to air some time this year.
