Has High School: Return of a Gangster been renewed for Season 2? Here’s what we know:



  • High School: Return of a Gangster is the latest  fantasy revenge drama  from South Korea that tells the story of Deuk Pal and how his spirit transferred into Yi-heon’s body
  • Like other streaming platforms, Wavve  & TVING determines whether to renew a show based on various factors, such as completion rate, viewership numbers, production costs, and more.
  • As of now, Wavve & TVING has yet to renew or cancel the show officially.

High School: Return of a Gangster Season 1 was well-written, and the actors did an amazing job bringing their characters to life. Now, the question on everyone’s mind is, will there be a Season 2? Look no further; this article has all the insider details you’re craving.

What is High School: Return of a Gangster Season 1 about?

The show follows Kim Deuk Pal, a 47-year-old involved in a gang. He is second in command, but his real dream is to graduate high school. This is because he was unable to finish school due to his family’s financial struggles while he was young.

One fateful night, he attempts to save a young high school boy, Song Yi Heon, from committing suicide. Unfortunately, Deuk-pal dies and his spirit is transfered into Yi-heon’s body. After learning the reason behind Yi-heon’s suicide attempt, Deuk-pal vows to avenge him and returns to school to deal with Yi-heon’s bullies. At school, he meets Choi Se Kyung, a classmate who is convinced that he is not the real Yi-heon. 

Has  High School: Return of a Gangster been renewed for Season 2?

Unfortunately, Wavve and TVING have yet to announce a new season, and we don’t have high hopes. Generally streaming platforms would gauge numerous metrics before renewing a show, including how many people initially watch it and then looking at the drop-off rate.

Some shows have quick cancellations or renewals, while others can take months to decide on their future.

The show garnered high ratings across all streaming platforms, namely TVING, Watcha, Wavve, and Viu. It was one of the top trending shows on Viu for the past four weeks. Unfortunately, K-dramas rarely get renewed, and we think this one will join the long list of K-dramas that won’t have a sequel.

What we know about Season 2 so far:

On this, we are in the dark like Se-kyung. We have no idea and are pessimistic about getting a second season. However, if the show gets renewed, won’t it be fun to see what adventures Se-kyung and Yi-heon are getting into while in university? Will Yi-heon’s mom succeed in returning to the acting scene? The possibilities are endless, but will we be favoured to have a new season?
