Renewed Or Cancelled?
Bad Prosecutor is a mid-week thrilling K-drama that takes the idea of law dramas and turns it into a vibrant, fun treat, with some great characters and a compelling mystery woven throughout.
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 Bad Prosecutor Season 1 about?
Jin Jung is a troublemaking prosecutor that works at the Central District Office. With a healthy dose of justice and craziness, he punishes criminals way more than they deserve.
Alongside him at the office is A-Ra, Jung’s partner. She’s a competent prosecutor who always judges issues objectively and manages to handle them with a clean finish.
There’s also Do-Hwan, who believes money and power are everything and he’ll do whatever it takes to go higher up. In a world corrupted with wealth and evil, these three characters are on a collision course for chaos! What will happen when they collide?
Has Bad Prosecutor been renewed for season 2?
At the time of writing, KBS2 have not renewed Bad Prosecutor 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 4.3% share nationwide and since then it’s actually been pretty steady, hovering around the 5% mark for most weeks. People are definitely sticking it out to find out what happens next with this one.
Given that most Korean dramas only run for a single season, coupled with the rarity of KBS2 greenlighting a sequel to any of its projects, we predict Bad Prosecutor 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:
Most Korean dramas are reserved to one season, as detailed above, and with the rare exception of ongoing Netflix shows (Love ft. Marriage and Divorce, Hospital Playlist etc.) then it seems unlikely that this one will be renewed.
However, there is always the possibility that the actors return for a follow-up for a sequel or a spin-off featuring the same characters. But based on everything we’ve seen, it’s highly unlikely that Bad Prosecutor will be renewed.
We generally aim to update this page when more information becomes available.
