The Lost Tomb Reboot (重启之极海听雷) is the latest addition to the tomb-related franchise starring Zhu Yi Long, Mao Xiao Tong, Huang Jun Jie (as Qi Ling), Hu Jun, Chen Ming Hao, and Baron Chen. Our three musketeers are drawn back to adventures in the dark with a message from Mr. Wu.
Season 1 has 32 episodes. So I guess the whopping episode count is due to the fact they will be splitting the series into multiple seasons?
Tang Wei‘s drama comeback is Ming Dynasty (大明风华) with actor Zhu Ya Wen, and the story follows
our female lead after her family was beheaded by Emperor Yongle and she lives solely for the purpose of revenge. She’s then adopted with a new name and later becomes Empress Xiaogongzhang, wife to as Emperor Xuande, the fifth emperor of the Ming dynasty. His kindness resolves her steely heart and dangerous plan. You will see plenty of familiar faces such as Qiao Zhen Yu, Lay (as Emperor Yingzong of Ming), and Yu Hao Ming (Zhu Gao Xu, later the Prince of Han), just to name a few.

Not much about the novel is talked about but the vague synopsis describes the journey of a young talented lad (Ou Hao) after he’s offered an opportunity by a mysterious man to change his life. His character becomes the god of war – the Great General Han Xin, who served under Liu Bang (Zhang Dan Feng) and contributed to the founding of the Han dynasty.
