Has Black Knight been renewed for Season 2? Here’s what we know:

Renewed Or Cancelled?

Currently streaming on Netflix, Black Knight takes place in a futuristic world that is ruled by the oppressive, classist technological firm Cheonmyeong. The drama revolves around a highly respected deliveryman 5-8 who serves as a ray of hope for the destitute.

The first season has received mixed responses from critics and the general public. Despite that, if you’ve finished watching this one, you may be curious to know whether this has been renewed or canceled. Here’s what we know:


What is Black Knight about?

Black Knight presents an extremely hopeless, futuristic world to us. This classist society is ruled by a ruthless government and the world is navigated by celebrated deliveryman 5-8.

5-8 meets Sa-wol, a mutant refugee who strives to be exactly like 5-8, while on his quest for justice. Together with Major Seol-ah’s assistance, 5-8 and Sa-wol work to defend this dystopian nightmare world’s most fragile section of society.

Has Black Knight been renewed for season 2?

At the time of writing, Netflix has not yet renewed Black Knight for a second season. This is not surprising given that the K-drama has only recently released on the streaming platform.

While renewing a series, Netflix often evaluates a variety of factors, such as how many people initially watch it along with the drop-off rates. Some series undergo fast cancellations or renewals. Other times, it may take several months for Netflix to decide whether or not to renew a show.

The show has already experienced tremendous success though. It’s trending in the top ten list in countries like the US, UK, Australia, and Canada, within just a few days.

In light of everything, we believe that Black Knight will receive a second-season renewal. Netflix have a decent track record with their original series renewals and given how this is trending right now, we’d be surprised if it’s cancelled.

As we learn more over the upcoming weeks and months, we’ll be certain to update this page with relevant information.


What we know about season 2 so far:

Since Netflix has not yet officially approved a season 2, not much is known. Undoubtedly, if the right storyline materializes in the future, the tale will go on.

We can assume that Ryu Seok could continue to pose a threat to the protagonist and the refugees. The mutant blood he withdrew during his planned transfusion with Sa-wol worked, transforming his organs into metal. So it’s not far-fetched to assume that he might have survived the shot and the fire.

The subject of mutants’ hidden skills is an additional topic that could be covered in the following season. So far, we are aware of the mutants’ metal skeletons and enhanced healing but there is still some suspense surrounding mutants and their abilities.

As previously stated, we anticipate that this will be renewed but we’ll have to wait and see. However, as soon as new information is made available, we’ll be certain to update this article.
