If you’ve binged the entire first season and are itching to know if there will be a second, this article has all the details you’re looking for.

What is Apartment 404 about?

Like many Korean variety shows, Apartment 404 is structured to follow different celebrities in the cast as they solve mysteries and win the game. In this case, the cast, led by Yoo Jae-suk, solves mysteries in different apartments across South Korea. 

Has  Apartment 404 been Renewed for Season 2?

At the time of this writing, Prime Video has not been forthcoming about season 2; from the looks of it, we won’t be hearing anything soon. Although the show has been raking in new views over the weeks, Prime Video isn’t likely to renew it immediately.

Generally Prime Video would gauge numerous metrics before renewing a show, including how many people initially watch it and then looking at the drop-off rate. With some shows, cancellations or renewals happen quickly. Other times, it can take months before a decision over a show’s future is made.

So far, Apartment 404 has had a pretty lukewarm reaction from critics and audiences alike, with some really enjoying the drama but the ratings not quite lighting the charts up.

Given the way this show is set up, we’re predicting that this will not be renewed for a second season. The series does have plenty of potential but we also know that a lot of studios are tightening their purses this year, given the knock-on effect of the recent strikes. 

Still, we’ll be sure to update this section with accurate details over the coming weeks and months when we know more!

What do we know about Apartment 404 Season 2?

At the moment, there is no information about the possibility of a second season. Season 1 failed to capture viewers’ attention and it could easily be considered a flop on that basis. If they decide to do another season, they should consider changing the structure and the cast.
