Renewed Or Cancelled?

Duty After School is the latest South Korean military sci-fi thriller based on Ha Il-kwon’s webtoon by the same name. The students at Sungjin High School are forced to enlist in the military to fight during an alien invasion.


What is Duty After School Season 1 about?

Duty After School is about a group of senior students from Seongjin High who are left with no choice but to fight against an alien invasion. In the worldwide invasion, the South Korean President announces the start of mandatory conscription for all third-year high schoolers both male and female.

The students at Sungjin High School start their mandatory military training on the school grounds. The soldiers teach them the necessary skills needed to survive a war. However, this is a different kind of war; will they manage to save themselves and the world?

We have extensive coverage on Duty After School across the site, including ongoing recaps for all 10 episodes. Feel free to check them out HERE!


Has Duty After School been renewed for season 2?

At the time of this writing, Duty After School has not been officially renewed for season two. The show has captivated Korean and international fans and has maintained top ratings throughout its run.

Despite the ratings, it’s extremely rare to find Korean dramas renewed for another season. That has changed in recent years but given the sheer wealth of talent in this that are sure to move onto other projects, we predict that Duty After School will not be renewed for a second season.

We’ll be sure to update this section with more details as they become available.


What we know about season 2 so far:

We know K-dramas rarely get renewed for a second season, and this one is no exception. The show wrapped up most of the character’s stories. The show wrapped up the story and unless there will be a second-world alien invasion, we probably won’t be getting season 2.

That said, in case of an alien invasion, it would be interesting to see Chi-yeol reunite with the other survivors to fight. Unfortunately, I think they have been through enough trauma and death in their lives.

At this point, it is best to face the real possibility that the show won’t have another season. However, if we get lucky and it is green-lit for another round, we’ll be sure to update this article accordingly.

  1. This drama is damn annoying 😒😒😒😒😒😒 Lyk Wat wif de unexpected ending cuz dis film did not end well at all so there gast to be season 2 cuz dis season one is the worst

  2. All good acting, I just hope those who survived four student could unite and have a happy ending on their own lives, ATLEAST it will balance due to the sad deaths of other students. If I were the director, that what I’ll do.

  3. TRAUMATIC ENDING! If I could go back in time, I wouldn’t dare to watch this series. But the cast delivered an outstanding performance. I would love to see them in their own variety show, cause the dynamics between the casts behind the scenes is really great.

  4. Instead of a season 2 maybe just remake it with the same cast. I would have loved for it to end like the webtoon.

  5. I want season 2 to fix it nice show like what will happened and the four survivor how they face it cause I saw that not all aliens in space are gone there’s left few then it will happily ending by nara and chi yeol together their left team ea seol and the one I forgot her name too.🥰🙏

  6. Season 2 please 🙏🏽. I truly was upset on the ending but I did see it coming due to that guy losing it. Like that happens in real life already. As sad n traumatic it’s something possible. Hope if they do Season 2 they some how bring some that perhaps we thought died back. Like make as they passed out but awoke injured n was bring back to health not all but some. I really want Season 2. With ones who survived. Plus there’s also more aliens. Maybe show the prison guy also on Season 2.

  7. Please DON’T renew for second season. The writer ruined this series. Warning for everyone, read reviews and discussions before watching “Duty after School “, you’ll regret it in the end like me. But if you really have to watch it, don’t rate it early on coz you will rate it differently in the end.

  8. No, although I like the first part of the show, since the writer ruined the last episode for everyone, I will not want this series to be renewed again. Everyone rated this show early coz the first episode up to six episodes was really good. This should be a lesson for all of us to check the story and ending first before watching this kind of plot again. Because it’s frustrating to watch a perfectly good show be ruined in the end. So yes, if for some reason there’s another season of this series, many of us will not be watching it again.
