Novoland: Eagle Flag begins streaming today

Novoland: Eagle Flag is the 4th major historical or fantasy drama to drop with barely any notice.

The long-awaited fantasy drama Novoland: Eagle Flag began airing today. As with all last minute announcements, there is a lack of promos, so here’s the last round-up post I did before they pulled the show off air in early June.

The 56 episode drama will release 2 episodes from Tuesday to Thursday this week, and then release 2 episodes every Monday to Thursday beginning next week. Watch the show on Youku and Tencent (both region-blocked)  and on a two-day delay on Youtube on this channel.

First batch of stills for Novoland: Eagle Flag

Novoland: Eagle Flag has released character stills, and I can’t take my eyes off the supporting cast. I need them as leads in a political intrigue drama of their own right now.
