My Girlfriend is An Alien 2 (外星女生柴小七2) is the sequel to 2019’s modern fantasy My Girlfriend is An Alien, reuniting the same leads. The story follows the hilarious romance between an alien girl and an overbearing boss who has trouble recalling the females around him. Season 2 continues with their adventures on Earth.
I didn’t even watch Season 1 and here they go and begin filming for Season 2. To those who watch S1, did the show warrant a sequel?
