My Date With A Vampire II – 我和僵尸有个约会 2 | 43 Episodes

My Date with a Vampire II is a 1999 Hong Kong television series produced by ATV as a sequel to My Date with a Vampire (1998), but with a completely new story. It was followed by My Date with a Vampire III in 2004. The series starred many cast members from the first season. Like the first season, My Date with a Vampire II also blends aspects of the jiangshi (Chinese "hopping" vampire) with those of western vampires, while injecting elements of Chinese mythology and modern horror legends, but in this season, there is an additional touch of eschatology The story in the second season is a reboot of the first season but the main characters' names and roles are still similar to those in the first season. Some new characters and new subplots are also introduced in this season. At the end of My Date with a Vampire, the buddha Vairocana grants Fong Kwok-wah (Fong Tin-yau) his wish to travel back in time and be a vampire no more. In My Date with a Vampire II, Fong Kwok-wah and Yamamoto Ichifu clash again in 1938 and their fight arouses the attention of Cheung San (the progenitor of all vampires), who interrupts the fight. Just as Cheung San is about to bite the two men and turn them into vampires, Ma Dan-na appears and attacks Cheung San, driving him away, thus sparing Fong and Yamamoto from their fates. Not long later, Fong agrees to help Ma hunt down and destroy Cheung San. They succeed in trapping Cheung San but he breaks free and bites Fong and the boy Fuk-sang (who is nearby), transforming them into vampires. Fong Kwok-wah and Fuk-sang survive until the present-day (1990s) and their physical appearances have not changed since 60 years ago. However, before Fong became a vampire, he already had a son with his wife Sau, so he now has a grandson named Fong Tin-yau. Fong Tin-yau is killed in an incident in England so Fong Kwok-wah impersonates his grandson. He meets Ma Siu-ling (a descendant of Ma Dan-na), the heiress to a clan of ghostbusters who have dedicated themselves to ridding the world of evil supernatural beings. Fong starts a romance with Ma. Nüwa, the goddess who created mankind according to Chinese mythology, has become very disappointed and heartbroken after seeing how her creations have become corrupted by evil, and she intends to end the world on 2nd. January 2001. Cheung San has existed long before the world came into existence, and he has a crush on Nüwa. Fong Tin-yau, Ma Siu-ling, and their friends plan to stop Nüwa from ending the world. However, they will come into conflict with not only the goddess herself, but also Cheung San and his followers.
