‘Ossan’s Love’ Rumored To Come Back For A New Season!

Is TV Asahi’s ‘Ossan’s Love’ returning with a brand new season?

According to the Pinzuba News article published on July 21st, Kei Tanaka, Kotaro Yoshida, and Hayashi Kento will be back in ‘Ossan’s Love’ next year at TV Asahi’s Friday’s Night Drama time slot, which is subject to further confirmation.

Ossan’s Love is the first Japanese television drama produced by TV Asahi to feature the BL (Boys’ Love) genre. It stars actors Kei Tanaka, Kotaro Yoshida, and Hayashi Kento. It was initially released as a single-episode television special in 2016, which was adapted into a seven-episode television series in 2018. A feature film sequel to the television series, Ossan’s Love: Love or Dead, was released in 2019; a second season of the television series titled Ossan’s Love: In the Sky aired that same year.

In case you haven’t watched ‘Ossan’s Love’, here is an overview:

At thirty-three, Soichi Haruta (Kei Tanaka) should have been living a full, happy, comfortable life. Unfortunately, he’s not. As an employee at a local real estate office, Soichi isn’t exactly unsuccessful in his career but when it comes to women, he has absolutely no luck. Still living with his parents, Soichi often wonders if his luck will ever change. Ironically enough, it does; but not in the way he was expecting.

Done supporting him, Soichi’s mother decides to walk away, leaving her son to find a way to survive on his own. With no idea how to cook, clean, or generally take care of himself, Soichi wastes no time in accepting his co-worker, Ryota Maki’s (Kento Hayashi), offer when he invites Soichi to live with him. Though Soichi is happy to be enjoying Ryota’s impeccable housekeeping skills, he’s completely caught off guard when he learns that Ryota has long had a crush on him. To make matters even more complicated, Soichi’s boss, Musashi Kurosawa (Kotaro Yoshida) has recently confessed his love for him.

Surrounded by men with strong feelings for him, Soichi finds himself caught in an unexpected love triangle. How will he be able to sort out his own feelings when he’s constantly being pulled in opposite directions?

 

In addition, ‘Ossan’s Love’ had its Cantonese TV series adaptation produced by HK Television Entertainment for the broadcaster ViuTV. It is the first notable mainstream television drama to feature gay romance as the central storyline in their respective regions. It starred idol-turned-actor Edan Liu and Anson Lo from Hong Kong boy group MIRROR and was broadcast in 2021.
