The second season of the TV drama adaptation of Masahito Kagawa and Naomi Kimura’s “Asagao: Forensic Doctor” has been moved from Summer 2020 to Fall 2020 due to production difficulties brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic. “Asagao” follows the story of rookie forensic scientist Maki Asagao, who works with her father Taira — a veteran detective.

The original cast of the first season is back to reprise their roles, including Juri Ueno, Saburo Tokito, Shunsuke Kazama, Mirai Shida, Akiyoshi Nakao, Shintaro Morimoto (SixTONES), Akane Sakanoue and many others.
