To celebrate the anticipated release of the second season of Netflix’s The New Legends of Monkey, we sat down with two of the stars of the show to find out just what fun is in store for us in the sophomore series.

Chai Hansen (Monkey) and Josh Thomson (Pigsy) talk us about the show – a retelling of the classic show Monkey – and inspired by 16th Century Chinese fable Journey to the West, The New Legends of Monkey follows a teenage girl and a trio of fallen gods on a perilous journey as they attempt to bring an end to a demonic reign of chaos and restore balance to their world. The cast also includes Luciane Buchanan as Tripitaka, Emilie Cocquerel, Josh McKenzie, Jordan Mooney, and Jarred Blakiston.

In our chat with Chai and Josh, they talked about the first season’s success, the pressures of going back to the well for another season, the unique challenges of bringing such stories to life, and the sheer amount of fun they all have together brought this fantastic show to life.
