Renewed Or Cancelled?

Ever since the Thai BL (boy love) genre has risen to become the soft power of Thailand’s entertainment industry, we have all kinds of projects cropping up from dramas and reality shows to movies. Only Friends is the latest Thai BL drama to grace our screens that starts off as a romantic drama in which friendship, romance and sexual interests blur. 

And of course, the drama stole our hearts with its stars like Force, Book, Khaotung, First, Neo and Mark, its exciting plot and angsty plot twists.

Well, after watching the show, you may be wondering if this has been renewed or cancelled. Here’s what we know:


What is Only Friends about?

With an ensemble cast, Only Friends has college students Mew, Ray and Boston managing a hostel together. Boston introduces his friend Top, the interior designer but things take a turn for the worse when the latter sets his eyes on Mew.

Ray gets into a friends-with-benefits relationship with Sand who wants more but it seems that Ray likes his friend Mew. Boston gets in a similar situation with Nick who wants more but Boston isn’t interested and has something going on with…Top? Phew, that is one messy love hexagon! Will their friendship last or will the boys lose everything?

We have extensive coverage of Only Friends across the site including recaps for every episode. You can find those HERE!


Has Only Friends been renewed for season 2?

At the time of writing, Only Friends has not been renewed for a second season

And despite its network, GMMTV greenlighting sequels for popular TV shows like Dark Blue Kiss, 2gether and Gifted, there is a slim chance. For the last few years, we have majorly been getting one-season wonders. 

However, they do tend to give new projects to popular on-screen couples like ForceBook, FirstKhaotung and NeoMark so we will surely see more of them in different dramas.


What we know about season 2 so far:

If we do get a season 2, first and foremost, we would definitely love to see more of Cheum and Yo. Despite being side characters, they stole the show every time they were on-screen. And it’s about time that Jennie got a leading role.

We would also love to see a prequel on the iconic love triangle between Sand, Boeing and Top. Of course, while a sequel is rare, we do wonder how the boys will continue with the way Only Friends season 1 ends. That sneaky little cameo by Mix as the guest who falls for Mew is definitely new season material. Boston’s ending did feel incomplete and there is of course the potential of making Boeing a main lead in season 2 if it happens.

We’ll be sure to update this page if there is any change.

  1. Honestly, I did not like this series.
    In my opinion, it had nothing to offer. Just a group of friends who all kissed each other. What is interesting about this?
    Behavioral defects were also seen. For example, how can someone inform his friend about his boyfriend’s betrayal while he spent the night with someone else?
    Normalizing kissing between two friends is destructive to many romantic relationships. This is something that is clearly mentioned in the movie. We are definitely waiting for better content for season 2. =)

  2. Honestly I want a season two of only friends but at the same time I don’t 😭. Sandray has had more than enough drama so leave them alone. I feel like there’s so much that could be added to another season, sands relationship with his father, Boston in New York, mix’s character, and a new love interest for Nick. Overall I loved sandrays storyline. Im definitely gonna miss them. I’d love to see firstkhao with a new series.

  3. it s a long time a BL has not be as brilliant as “only friends”
    very good casting of course
    good dialogues and filming humor love and friendship….
    CAN T BE THE END…….
    especially with this new character as SAHAPHAP (was that him ?)
    and why don t u try to bring in OHM PAWAT …. yes yes yes
    the season 2 should be on production NOW ….
    be careful it has to be EVEN BETTER !!!!!

  4. This show took the best elements from Europhia, Gossip Girl, and a few other shows and made it uniquley its own. I loved every moment it felt like a elevated BL, no cheesy sound effects or product placement and if there product placement i didn’t even notice. I was left gagged after certain esp. The acting was so good. Boston is a thai version of the character Ricky from Noahs Ark slutty, loose moarl compass and the need to bang any thing he could get his hands on. I like how the show progressed and keep the story moving along.

    We Need a season 2

  5. ABSOLUTELY NEED A SEASON TWO!!! PLEASE! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!!!!!!!!
    This show was absolutely amazing! Each of these actors showcased their incredible acting talents and showed their fans their incredible ability to portray all types of emotions! This BL was a rollercoaster of emotions and I absolutely loved it!
    If there were to be a second season, I would love to see what happens with Boston and how Mix’s character will “cause drama” among the friend group, as well as, more Cheum and Yo as they didn’t really get to have much screen time as a couple (as already stated in the article)!!
    PRAYING, HOPING, WISHING for a second season!!!!!!

    PS: If you haven’t watched Only Friends I 1000000000% recommend watching it! It is so worth it! I absolutely love and respect all these actors!
    Mark and Khaotung really played with my emotions in this series, especially Khaotung….the way he made me feel as if I was experiencing Ray’s pain firsthand with him is incredible. I truly respect his acting, he’s got mad skill omg.
