The second season of the hit Taiwanese show The Teenage Psychic is back with Wen Chen-ling as Zhan Xiao-Tong, a newcomer who has attracted her classmates’ attention after magically guessing all the right answers for a mock test. In a sneak peek of the trailer, Xiao Zhen reacts to Xiao Tong, shouting “Who told you to mess things up?! Don’t you know this can get others killed?!”.
More burdens fall on 17-year-old Xiao Zhen in this next season. Despite her growing psychic abilities, and forever leaving behind what occurred in the first season, this teenage girl still has a lot to deal with, asking herself, “If I could start over, would I make the same choices?”, “If I didn’t have these powers, none of this would be happening.”
As Xiao Zhen continues to walk between the world of the dead and the living, lead actress Yao Yao explains how she approached her role in when filming season 2: “Normally, I would look at the script and try to imagine how the character would speak through my own voice, but in this next season, the director coached me how to play a ghost. He then gave me voice recordings of himself playing as a ghost, and it really sank in! His recordings were so real that I finally understood what ‘ghost-talk’ actually sounds like.”
The Teenage Psychic tells the story of a high school girl (played by Yao Yao) with psychic powers who balances her life between student by day, and temple medium by night. Having dealt with the faithfuls’ many issues both big and small, her young eyes have already seen so much of the human condition, when all she wants is a normal teenage life. Starting right where season one left off, Xiao Zhen deals with the sudden departure of her best friend, while also balancing her new responsibilities as captain of the theater club and coping with the “needs” at the temple.
The second season contains eight episodes, with the first two being released on Sunday, Oct. 6 at 9 p.m. Afterwards, one new episode will show at the same time once a week. In Taiwan, the show can be watched on HBO and HBO HD channels, as well as on the PTS channel.
