Has Revenant been renewed for Season 2? Here’s what we know:

Renewed Or Cancelled?

It is no secret that Korea is one of the countries making great horror films and series. They have been upping their game with each project release and Revenant is the latest horror that had us fearing ghosts and locking our doors.


What is Revenant  Season 1 about?

Revenant tells the story of Ku San Young who is a young woman working to the bone to better her life and become a low-ranking public officer. Her life changes after she receives numerous articles left behind by her late father, and people start mysteriously dying around her. It turns out that the door to another world opened, and Ku San Young was possessed by a demon from that other world.

Enter Yeom Hae Sang, a rich chaebol who teaches folklore at a university. He has a special ability to see demons in this world and has been searching for the one that killed his mom. He comes to face to face with the demon when it possesses Ku San Young.

We have extensive coverage of Revenant across the site, including ongoing recaps for all 12 episodes. Feel free to check them out HERE!


Has Revenant been renewed for season 2?

At the time of this writing, Revenant has not been officially renewed for season 2. The show has managed to captivate Korean and international fans and has maintained top ratings throughout its run. 

Despite these ratings, it’s extremely rare to find Korean dramas renewed for another season. That has changed in recent years but given the ending, we might get a season 2 but it does seem highly unlikely.

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


What we know about season 2 so far:

Given what we know about K-dramas rarely getting renewed, the show didn’t have an ambiguous ending and all storylines were perfectly wrapped. However, it would still be nice to see Hae-sang’s journey continue given that he can still see ghosts. Season 2 could focus on him and Hong-sae solving more supernatural-related crimes.

We can even get a new character that is possessed by an intriguing ghost and has to be saved. Who would you love to see play a possessed character on the show? The possibility of the things Season 2 can cover is endless. Fingers crossed that the parties involved feel the same and decide to bless us with a new season!

  1. If you are able to bring back the show, please consider adding a couple of more characters to the main cast… The first person would be actress Lee Hyeri! She would fit beautifully in this show as someone like a … ghost shaman from the distant past. Hyeri has played numerous roles where where she can light up a room with humor, or take control of the situation and scare the crap out of you. She would fit in beautifully assisting our three main actors, as they search for the evil spirits they come across. I was also thinking of maybe putting another main character in, to be the antagonist to Hyeri’s character. This way everything’s on and even playing field… While Hyeri is guiding the evil spirit hunters, and others who seek to sow chaos in there wake, will be slowed down at nearly every turn, to the very last possible moment where anything can happen.
    Just my musings, but I wait for you to decide to go with it… Please continue it. It was such a great show and so many people want to see it going further… Thanks for taking your time to read this!

  2. Absolutely! Loved this show… And I think all three main characters, Kim Tae-ri, Oh Jung-se, and Hong Kyung did outstanding and should come back for a second season and more! There is so much material to work with here, and now that you have two people who can see ghosts and a detective working on their side…. the possibilities are endless! Please bring them back for more seasons!
