I am surprised TVB and iQiYi decided Legal Mavericks should divide into two seasons. Usually TVB would produce a series 2 long after series 1 is over and got excellent feedback. A completely produced series only splits because of logic, and usually would be labeled with named parts, such as the The Legend of the Condor Heroes was split into three parts: The Iron-Blooded Loyalists, The Eastern Heretic and Western Venom, and The Duel on Mount Hua. The words “Season 2” is never used in completely produced series.
I need to go back to re-watch a few episodes because I’m more or less on iQiYi’s schedule, and the time split was a little long for me to regain my watching momentum. But, this is one of the shows in recent years where the writing is thoughtful and thorough, the actors are putting in serious effort. I am hoping TVB would be kind to this drama during awards season.
