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

Renewed Or Cancelled?

The Whirlwind is the latest political thriller on Netflix, with 6 episodes chock full of action, thrills and suspense. So after watching it in its entirety, you may be wondering if this has been renewed or cancelled. Here’s what we know:


What is The Whirlwind about?

The Whirlwind revolves around Prime Minister Park Dong Ho, who battles a corrupt president colluding with chaebols. Deputy PM Jung Soo Jin confronts him, sparking a fierce political struggle in a bid to try and change South Korea’s politics.

A whirlwind clash ensues leading to lots of drama and thrills.


Has The Whirlwind been renewed for season 2?

At the time of writing, The Whirlwind has not been renewed for season 2. Generally Netflix would gauge numerous metrics before renewing a show, including how many people initially watch it and then looking at the drop-off rate.

With some shows, cancellations or renewals happen quickly. Other times, it can take months before a decision over a show’s future is made.

So far, The Whirlwind has had a pretty muted reaction from critics and audiences alike, but it is still early days and that could change going forward. The premise is very much full-on political thriller and these can sometimes be a bit divisive.

Given the way this show is set up, we’re predicting that this will not be renewed for a second season. The series does have plenty of potential but we also know that a lot of studios are tightening their purse-strings this year so it seems unlikely that this one will get a renewal order. However, we could be completely wrong too, so take our prediction with a pinch of salt!


What we know about season 2 so far:

Barely anything is known about season 2 at this point as Netflix haven’t officially renewed this one. Should it be renewed, we should see all of our characters return for more political drama.

The show (if renewed) is likely to be green-lit with another 6 episode order and take on the same tone and feel as the first.
