*Spoiler*

With A Change of Heart’s <好心作怪> finale coming up this week, the buzz of Triumph in the Skies 2 <衝上雲霄II> has already taken an early start. Pilot drama, Triumph in Skies 2, will be taking over A Change of Heart’s timeslot on July 15.

With the exception of Francis Ng (吳鎮宇), Myolie Wu (胡杏兒), Ron Ng (吳卓羲), Kenneth Ma (馬國明), and Nancy Wu (胡定欣), the rest of the cast from the original series will not return. Instead, TVB added new cast Chilam Cheung (張智霖), Fala Chen (陳法拉), Him Law (羅仲謙), and Elena Kong (江美儀). The series will consist a grand total of 43 episodes and follow the main characters chasing love across France, England, China, Taiwan, and Hong Kong.

Synopsis

Not long after Sam (Francis Ng) and Zoe’s  (Myolie Wu) marriage, Zoe’s heart condition worsens. Sam quits his job as a pilot to travel around the world with his wife. Unfortunately, Zoe dies, leaving a heartbroken Sam to travel to England all by himself. There, he meets local restaurant owner Manna and stays at her place to take his mind off Zoe. Deciding that Sam has been avoiding his life in Hong Kong long enough, his brother, Isaac (Ron Ng), flies to England to persuade Sam to return.

Sam coincidentally meets Holly (Fala Chen) in England, not knowing that she is actually Manna’s daughter, and comforts her after her breakup with her boyfriend. After talking to Holly, Sam finally accepts Zoe’s death and returns to Hong Kong. Sam joins Skylette Airlines along with Roy (Kenneth Ma), Coco (Nancy Wu) and the residential flirtatious captain pilot, Jayden (Chilam Cheung). Jayden is nicknamed “Captain Cool” due to his playboy-like behavior and clashes greatly with Sam, who has a more conservative personality.

On the other hand, Holly, who successfully passed the test to becoming a pilot, wins the heart of Jayden. Holly sees a resemblance between Jayden and her ex-boyfriend and finally accepts his love pursuit. However, Sam does not approve of Holly yet and remains strict with his mentoring methods. Unfortunately, poor weather conditions caused turbulence during a flight that Sam and Holly led and both were forced to work together to ensure a safe landing. After that incident, both realized how much they had in common and start developing romantic feelings. In the end, Holly breaks up with Jayden to be with Sam, leaving Jayden to be heartbroken for the first time. Jayden is determined to win back Holly, who is caught in the crossfire between the two pilots.

Jayden’s sister, Summer (Myolie Wu), falls in love with Isaac, but he has doubts about accepting her due to her strong resemblance to Sam’s late wife, Zoe. Instead, Isaac decides to pursue Kiu Cho Sze (Kelly Fu 傅嘉莉), a waitress that he met at a coffee shop in the airport. Roy, who is now a co-pilot, begins a relationship with Heather (Elena Kong) despite being her junior. And lastly, one of the highlights for the series will Jim Jim (Him Law) and Coco’s grand wedding in Paris, France.

Filled with romantic relationship arcs, Triumph in the Skies 2, will likely please younger viewers when it airs next Monday.

    Sounds like a bunch of draggy love triangles, that can be really stressful to watch. Romance is an important factor to the series but I hope that’s not the main thing they’re focusing on wince most of us are looking forward to the aircraft line as well.

    I’m looking forward to this, it’s been 10 long years they couldn’t have picked a more perfect time to release it. Hopefully it won’t disappoint.

    BTW I think there is an error in the article, Nancy was also part of the original cast.

      I think that “TITS” was Nancy Wu’s first decent drama series with dialogues.

        agree nancy kicked ass in twins of brothers but tvb didn’t bother to promote her when she evidently can act, sing and dance all at once!

        Agree with sel_fi_wu. Nancy is a triple threat that TVB should be promoting more. I wonder why she was not on The Voice since she can definitely sing better than a lot of them!

    So who will be Myolie’s love interests ?

    • Austin replied:

      Her main love interest is Ron when she plays the Summer character.

      She will be playing Zoe briefly in the beginning of the series where she’s paired with Francis but that character is killed off.

      • sel_fi_wu replied:

        heard rumours that zoe is killed off to let fala lead over myolie. if it’s true tvb is really unfair. but glad that myolie can show her acting chops by her new introvert tomboy mechanic and being chilam’s sister also have fresh pairing with ron

  4. Amy says:

    In a way im looking forward to this, but in another I am not, the cast is far too big, and if the script writers were to kill off Zoe, it might have been better not to cast Francis, even though he is one of my all time favourite actors.
    I think it would have been much more interesting to have tried to at least continue the story for Zoe and Sam. However most of the original cast have since left TVB, so it will be interesting how this follow up can really work and gain the success the first one had.
    Time will tell!

    After ten years, it’s finally here! I am happy but also sad. I was really looking forward to having Michelle Ye and Sammul Chan return. I just hope that this won’t flop and ruin how great the first one was. If it does, then I’d rather TVB not create this sequel. However, this series is already on my bad side when I heard the leaked theme song by George Lam. He is a great singer and all, but the song just does not seemed appropriate for a youthful show like this and Eason’s song for the first one was so memorable and good that this song just does not match up. If TVB couldn’t come up with a good theme song, then why couldn’t they just reuse the old one? They did it for the trailers anyway. I also don’t like how TVB decides to just kill Zoe off to highlight Fala’s character more. -SIGH- Fingers crossed that the rest of the drama won’t disappoint. Watched the first one when I was in second grade and I loved it. Now I’m a high school senior, and I still remember the whole drama and its amazing songs especially the subtheme by Flora. (:

    I don’t have high hopes for this. I did do a rather complete episodic thoughts of the first series many moons ago, and enjoyed writing it. I think perhaps I should do one for the follow up. At least this series will end the who zoey/zooey/zoeey/joey/soye debacle and the gibberish English.

    Lol… From the source it said that chilam leaves the love triangle eventually and respects fala’s wishes to be with Francis. Seems like the entire plot is out… I hope there is more to that!

    Still can’t get over the fact they have to kill off Zoe… Been rewatching tits1

    Is Him Law just a main kelefe?

    • Smart Aleck replied:

      Francis is because he was in the first one too. Technically, Myolie’s character Zoe is supposed to be main, but since she is killed off Fala is. Yeah, Him is pretty much supporting.

        You’re right there isn’t, but certain characters will be more highlighted (Fala) than others (Myolie) obviously in a drama filled with so many characters.

        Login or Register before you can reply to Smart Aleck
      • advo replied:

        Nope. Secondary characters will have less screen time and Myolie is not going to be a secondary character. The show hasn’t even started to air yet, but fans are already pitting Myolie vs. Fala *eyeroll*.

      I’ve noticed that sometimes it’s best not to be the lead. They have more interesting story line and if carried well, the supporting roles out-shine the leads.

    Typical that they’d kill off Zoe to ensure Francis’ character is single to make more story arcs!

  15. Cm says:

    From the above synopisis, it doesn’t sound too promising. The best parts of series one were the plots which fleshed out the characters and the dramas of family and friendship e.g Isaac coming to respect and admire his brother, the brotherhood of S4 and the friendship shared between Belle, Ruby and Zoe, the fun and humour of the Tongs family dramas. They have basically taken all the worst bits of series 1 i.e the love triangles between Donald, Isaac, Zita and Sam, Vincent, Belle, and Zoe and stretched it out to 43 Eps.

    I suppose we will have to wait and see

    • sel_fi_wu replied:

      won’t be that bad. the synopsis purposely left out the part of myolie fell in love with ron because ron helped her reconcile with chilam as brother and sister, and also part of ron and francis britherhood after zoe’s death and ron meets myolie who look like his sister in law. the synopsis only promote fala

        so unfair because myolie has better acting than fala and was the lead in the original series pairing with francis but suddenly myolie was pushed aside to promote fala who already left tvb

      • Austin replied:

        The first one had 40 episodes….the romance was pretty dragged out in the first one along with all the love triangles it seems like they might be doing the same thing here too.

      • HeTieShou replied:

        Thanks for the info and boy, it already all sounds so draggy. I like romance and all,but it should not be dragged out because that would be really boring to watch.

      • Austin replied:

        Not to mention exhausting for us and the actors, sometimes I feel like a relationship should of ended or be resolved episodes ago.

        Login or Register before you can reply to Austin
      • advo replied:

        40 episodes isn’t really bad for a grand production, I just hope they pace it OK. The romantic storylines should be spread out, and there should be just as much emphasis on other relationships. I feel that for a 40 episodes drama, there is much better opportunity for all around character development – however, TVB seems to rarely take advantage of it. Fx ACOH which has some character developments in one episode and then next it will be completely plot-driven. Very annoying.

        I don’t really have that high hopes for TITS since it’s both a TVB production and a sequel – but I’m excited that they have filmed in many different countries so there so be some nice scenery. And of course, I hope that the addition of Francis and Chilam will spark some new energy. The script will probably be the weakest part as usual though.

    • advo replied:

      Well, I always heard that the first one had a lot of love drama too so it’s not surprising that they would continue that in the sequel. As for family connections, I also hope that 43 episodes will mean there will be focus on other things that purely romantic interactions. And I do know that Francis’ character live with Ron’s and Nancy’s characters so there so be some nice family/friendship scenes there. I also think Myolie’s character will create some angst between the brothers, since Isaac is pursuing a woman who will constanly remind his brother of his deceased wife.

    This is the only TVB series that may interest me into watching this year, but 43 episodes seems kinda overkill. Hope having Chilam & Myolie would make up for it being so draggy, but too bad they’re siblings 🙁 Would like to see the pairing of these two as couple….

    For those who are hoping that TITS2 will follow the success of the first installment will be in for a major disappointment. Just observing that barely any of the original casts returned, and the continuing lack of quality produced TVB dramas since the early 2000’s. This series will flop. They shouldn’t have messed with a good thing and ended it with the first installment.

    If this is truly the plot, this is just sad. Poor weather which led to turbulence which led to people realizing they have things in common which led to love?

  25. sandcherry says:

    Personally I did not think too highly of the original TITS. The storyline was also dragging quite a bit between the love relationships between Francis, Joe Ma and Flora, and some others. However, it was something new and exciting because it talked about pilots’ training, airplane functioning, crew members’ daily lives and beautiful scenery.

    In terms of storyline, I don’t think it was a fantastic one.

    I don’t have high expectations from this sequel besides watching beautiful scenery of England, France, China, and Taiwan.

      @sandcherry: Totally agree with you. I actually wasn’t too fond of the original either and to be honest, I didn’t even finish watching the whole thing, as I started skipping around when the storyline got too draggy to bear. I also didn’t like the way they did the cameos in the first installment — the guest stars sort of appeared randomly out of nowhere (the only cameo that actually ‘made sense’ in my opinion was Eason)…honestly, after awhile, it started to look more like an EEG promotional video than a TVB series..LOL. Hopefully they do a better job with the cameos / guest stars in the sequel (though of course we probably shouldn’t have high hopes, since it’s TVB after all)….
