Has Under the Gun been renewed for Season 2?

At the time of writing, Under the Gun has not been renewed for season 2.

The landscape of K-dramas is evolving, but we have yet to see many shows with multiple seasons. While some dramas like Strong Girl Nam-soon, Doctor Romantic, and Taxi Driver 2 have been successful enough to warrant sequels, it’s still uncommon to see romantic K-dramas with second seasons. As a result, the chances of getting a season 2 of Under the Gun seem slim for now.

Generally Viu 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, Under The Gun has had a pretty good reaction from critics and audiences alike, with some really enjoying the drama and action.

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 purses this year, given the knock-on effect of the recent strikes.

A potential second season, though highly unlikely, would delve into the romantic relationship between Go Gun and Se Young. Tae Ha, always the jealous and scheming character, would likely try to create obstacles for them. In simple terms, it would probably be similar to the first season, which had a fantastic cast but was ultimately mediocre.

What do we know about Under the Gun Season 2?

As of now, there’s been no official announcement regarding the renewal of Under the Gun for a second season, leaving fans eagerly awaiting an update. However, there’s a high likelihood that the show will not get renewed. 

If the show does return, the audience can anticipate a season with approximately 6-8 episodes, each lasting around 20-25 minutes. Nothing has been confirmed yet, but we’ll be sure to update this page as soon as any new information comes in.
