Renewed Or Cancelled?
My Perfect Stranger is the latest time travel K-drama, blending elements of mystery, romance, comedy and drama into an intriguing cocktail of influences.
If you’ve been following this one, you may be wondering if this has been renewed or cancelled. Well, wonder no more! Here’s what we know about a renewal:
What is My Perfect Stranger Season 1 about?
My Perfect Stranger centers on Yoon Hae-joon, a man who finds a strange time travel car and travels back to 1987. In doing so, he becomes entangled in a serial murder case, with his own life hanging in the balance.
What he didn’t account for though is Yoon-young, a young woman who gets caught up in this too, sent back to 1987 where she meets the younger version of her parents and decides to do everything she can to make sure they don’t get together.
We have ongoing coverage of My Perfect Stranger across the site including ongoing recaps for all episodes. You can find that HERE!
Has My Perfect Stranger been renewed for season 2?
At the time of writing, KBS2 have not renewed My Perfect Stranger 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 4.5% share nationwide but since then, the show has held pretty firm over the weeks.
Given that most Korean dramas only run for a single season, and the ratings aren’t exactly lighting up the K-drama schedule, we predict My Perfect Stranger will not be renewed.
We’ll be sure to update this section with more details as they become available though.
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 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, Dr Romantic and Tale of the Nine Tailed renewed recently. Given how steady the ratings are for this series, could we see this one buck the trend? It seems very unlikely that My Perfect Stranger will, but you never know! We’ll be sure to update this section when we know more.
