The drama about an unlikely friendship between five women who share a floor in a Shanghai apartment complex is back for a third season. Ode to Joy 3 will star Jiang Shuying as biologist Ye Zhenzhen and Yang Caiyu as the mysterious and elegant HR manager Zhi Heng, who each have their own apartments. The third apartment will be shared by hotel manager Zhu Ji (Zhang Jianing) and young white-collars He Minhong (Zhang Huiwen) and Yu Chuhui (Sun Qian).
I enjoyed Season 1 and raised eyebrows at Season 2, so here’s to hoping Season 3 brings something new to the table. Directed by Jian Chuanhe (Ode to Joy 2) and written by original author A’nai, the series is yet to begin filming.
