THE CHALLENGES WON’T STOP FOR DR KIM ON ‘THE CHAIR’ SEASON 2
Dr. Ji-Yoon Kim (played by Sandra Oh) becomes the first woman of colour to receive a faculty position at a major university. She has been appointed for a big purpose, to meet the responsibilities and heavy-duty requirements of a dismantling English department.
As the first female head of the department, Dr. Ji-Yoon Kim has to face many challenges along the way including low enrollment. The reason behind plummeting admissions in the department is the lax attitude of the senior staff members who are approaching the end of their careers and are least concerned about the future state of affairs.
RENEWAL STATUS OF ‘THE CHAIR’ SEASON 2 AND RELEASE DATE UPDATE
Though ‘The Chair’ isn’t renewed for season 2, it is clear from the finale that there’s more to come. The Chair is not intended to have just one season. Because of its engaging character dynamics and intriguing plots, fans of the show are glued to every news update about the show.
Till the time of the publication of the article, no formal announcement has been made as to whether Season 2 is renewed or cancelled. Netflix will evaluate audience numbers to determine if the second season will be greenlit.
THE CAST UPDATE OF ‘THE CHAIR’ SEASON 2
If ‘The Chair’ gets renewed for a season 2, Sandra Oh will most likely return as Dr. Ji-Yoon Kim, the English department head of the faculty at Pembroke College. Holland Taylor’s performance got her long-overdue appreciation as she played Professor Joan Hambling, a close coworker of Dr. Kim. We can expect Taylor and other veteran university staff members Ron Crawford, Bob Balaban, and David Morse. It is to be seen what happens next for disgraced professor Bill Dobson (played by Jay Duplass), who is adamant about reinstating his position at the university despite knowing that his odds are slim. We can expect professor Yaz McKay and Nana Mensah to reconsider their decision to leave Pembroke after season 1.
