The supporting cast line-up for Tokai TV & WOWOW Spring 2017 drama "Hanzai Shoukougun Season 2" starting on 11 June at 10pm on Sundays via WOWOW has been announced. The drama is based on the three-part "Shoukougun" novel series by writer Nukui Tokuro where "Shissou Shoukougun" (Disappearance Syndrome) and "Yuukai Shoukougun" (Kidnap Syndrome) will form Season 1 while "Satsujin Shoukougun" (Murder Syndrome) will be made into Season 2.
