White Dragon Season 2 Release Date
Mostly, the first season does seem like a full story in itself. Jonah has finally discovered all the secrets he could. The man who killed her faces the consequences of his treachery. John Simm has always been a part of short-lived shows, and he rarely returns for a second season. It was speculated for a while that the show will be back for one more season in 2019, towards the end. But it did not happen. And even as of now, there are no such announcements or anything.

White Dragon Season 1 Story
The show is set in Hong Kong. When Professor Jonah Mulray’s wife, Megan (Dervla Kirwan), is killed in a car accident in Hong Kong, his life is turned upside down. Jonah has never visited despite having lived and worked there for half her life. He lives a small, sheltered life in London due to his fear of flying. But now he must travel to the other side of the globe to identify the body of the woman he loved.
Megan also happens to have a dark secret that she has kept hidden from everyone for more than two decades. When she dies in a strange and bizarre accident in a foreign land, her husband gets to learn more about her past. To truly understand his wife, Jonah must unearth decades of truth. Is he going to drown in his rage or mourn her untimely death? He arrives in Hong Kong and is quickly engulfed in a web of conspiracies. Jonah, who has previously never left his home because he was very afraid of flying, now had to mandatorily navigate a foreign country as well as walk through his own shortcomings. He learns that his wife Megan has a husband and a daughter living in Hong Kong. “I’ve gotten myself into something; the way things are going, I’m not sure I’ll see you again.” I wish things had gone differently, that we could have had more time, that you could have come here and seen how beautiful it is.” That is Megan’s final message to her husband. We feel sorry for Jonah; he is a nerdy professor who does not enjoy drama. Imagine discovering that your three-year-old wife has already been married to someone else for 20 years. He must now accept the possibility that his wife did not love him at all, and that he was merely a pawn in a much larger game. Also, if you want to watch the show, you can watch it on Prime Video.
