According to the Sina Entertainment Weibo page, filming will be expected to commerce in the second half of 2021. The male leads for the drama have yet to be announced.

Will Tian Guan Ci Fu be an even more difficult project than “The Untamed”?

Some believe that the adaptation of the script for Tian Guan Ci Fu would be more difficult to turn into a live adaptation drama. This is because Heaven’s Official Blessing tells a story about a world where humans, ghosts and gods coexist. This would requires more powerful special effects as support.

Additionally, more background scenes may be needed since the world of ghosts, humans and gods are quite different.
