Missing Crown Prince is an intriguing historical K-drama, one managing to marry drama and romance together in the best possible way. If you’ve been following this one, you may be wondering if this has been renewed or cancelled. Here’s what we know:


What is Missing Crown Prince Season 1 about?

This Joseon-era rom-com is sure to keep you glued to both your screens and couch! Crown Prince Lee Gon, played by Suho from EXO, gets an unexpected visit when Choi Myung-Yoon, a feisty woman destined to be his bride, kidnaps him. As they dodge danger and political drama, love blossoms between these two unlikely partners.

Suho brings to life Crown Prince Lee Gon, a prince who loves his family and never shies away from his princely duties. Hong Ye-Ji joins the show as Choi Myung-Yoon, the curious daughter of the royal physician who takes Lee Gon on a wild adventure. Kim Min-Kyu plays Grand Prince Do Sung, who courageously searches for his missing brother despite all odds.


Has Missing Crown Prince been renewed for season 2?

At the time of writing, MBN have not renewed Missing Crown Prince for season 2. Given the ratings over the weeks, it’ll be interesting to see if they actually do renew this for a follow-up.

The ratings began with a rather underwhelming 1.4% share nationwide but since then, the show has slowly been increasing in popularity with every passing week, with the later episodes hitting upwards of 3.8% nationwide.

Despite the strong 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 Missing Crown Prince 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:

Barely anything is known about season 2 right now. Given most Korean dramas are reserved to one season, it’s rare to find these sort of shows renewed. With the rare exception of ongoing Netflix shows (Love ft. Marriage and Divorce, Hospital Playlist etc.) then it seems unlikely that this one will be renewed.

Having said that though, we have seen Taxi Driver and Tale of the Nine Tailed renewed recently, alongside Alchemy of Souls too. Given how steady the ratings are for this series, could we see this one buck the trend? It seems very unlikely that Missing Crown Prince will, but you never know! We’ll be sure to update this section when we know more.
