Scarlet Heart 2 is a sequel of the 2011 Chinese television series Scarlet Heart, continuing the story after the time traveling protagonist, Zhang Xiao (Cecilia Liu), returns to her own time following the death of Ma'ertai Ruoxi. The story is not considered to be canon to Tong Hua's novel Bu Bu Jing Xin because the author never wrote any sequels, although some of the cast members from the first series have returned. Unlike its predecessor, the series does not involve time traveling and will be set in the present, resolving the loose ends left by the cliffhanger.

It began filming in Tianjin, China, on March 2013 and ended in Hong Kong on June 2013.[1][2][1][3] The series premiered in Taiwan on Zhejiang STV on April 22, 2014.[4] Due to the restrictions on time-traveling dramas in Mainland China, the 39 original episodes were cut down to 35 and reassembled to 41.

Plot[edit]

It has been three months since Zhang Xiao woke up from a coma and she can't forget the Fourth Prince. One day, at the museum, she meets a man identical to him: he's Yin Zheng, the stepson of Zhentian Corporation's chairman, and, to find out his connection with the Fourth Prince, Zhang Xiao becomes a designer at Zhentian. Shortly after, however, an accident occurs and she loses her memories as Ruoxi, starting to date a kind man named Kang Sihan, Yin Zheng's stepbrother; meanwhile, the latter dates Lan Lan, a model identical to Zhang Xiao who hides a mysterious past. Helped by his uncle, Yin Zheng wants to revenge the death of his biological father by ruining Kang Zhentian. Due to her connection with Sihan, Zhang Xiao finds herself unwittingly in the center of a power struggle.
