Has ‘Extraordinary Attorney Woo’ been renewed for Season 2? Here’s what we know:

Renewed Or Cancelled?

Extraordinary Attorney Woo is an extraordinarily well written drama, blending social issues around autism with a simple but effective law drama.

If you’ve been following this one, you may be wondering if this has been renewed or cancelled.


What is Extraordinary Attorney Woo Season 1 about?

Extraordinary Attorney Woo centers on Woo Young-Woo, who happens to be an extremely smart woman who has autism spectrum disorder. She never forgets what she sees but has a lack of social skills. She begins working as a trainee lawyer at a large law firm.

She faces prejudice and irrationality against her from her peers and through the different cases she takes on, although she also approaches them with a fresh perspective that puts her a step above her peers.

As she solves cases with her own unique ways, helped in so small part by her obsession with whales, Woo Young-Woo more than shows what she’s capable of.


Has Extraordinary Attorney Woo been renewed for season 2?

At the time of writing, Netflix and ENA have not renewed Extraordinary Attorney Woo 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 rather modest 0.9% share nationwide but since then, the show has absolutely exploded and hit double figures on some weeks.

This massive rise in ratings, alongside the fact that this sort of drama is episodic by nature, could well buck the trend of K-dramas reserved to a single season. We predict that Extraordinary Attorney Woo will be renewed.

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


What we know about season 2 so far:

Barely anything is known about season 2 right now. Given most Korean dramas are reserved to one season, it’s rare to find these renewed. 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.

Having said that though, we have seen Taxi Driver and Tale of the Nine Tailed renewed recently. Given how strong the ratings are for Extraordinary Attorney Woo, the episodic nature of this law drama could see this follow suit and also be renewed.

There is always the possibility that the actors return for a follow-up for a sequel or a spin-off featuring the same characters. Based on this, and the scope of progressing and evolving the concept we believe this will be renewed.

We generally aim to update this page when more information becomes available.

I’m doing my part in telling others what a delight it is! I will be waiting to hear the good news that it will be renewed!

  11. My friend got me onto K dramas, and ever since, I can’t seem to watch anything else. They are so well made, tasteful, entertaining, solid storyline, and the actors are amazing…not to mention eye candy! Extrodinary Attorney Woo is by far my favorite, and I had seen many. Love that each episode is unique and all truly touch my heart. Please don’t let it end with season 1!

  12. I really hope they renew this show it is so creative and different I would watch every episode twice

  13. I am totally in love with the show and it’s my favorite so far! The actors are amazing and the plot is very interesting and realistic. I really wish for a season 2 with all the cast specially with Kang Tae-oh and Park Eun-Bin. Their love story is so beautiful!

  14. PLEASE return Extraordinary Attorney Woo for more seasons. We are enjoying it so much, and it is an absorbing antidote for all the concerns facing us now in real life. Excellent actors, all of them. Interesting, and heart-melting story-lines and scenes. Thank you, all involved, for this excellent show!

  15. Extraordinary Attorney Woo is beautifully written and sensitive. The acting is superb and the characters are realistic and intriguing. I love this series! Please renew it for another season. It’s so much better than most other shows.

  16. I hope this series will get a second season. Park Eun-Bin is so entertaining. Altho, I’ve heard Kang Tae Oh has to fulfill his military service, so that would be a major issue if it’s true.
    There are so many good Korean shows (Our Blues, Thirty-Nine, Fishbowl Wives, Green Mothers Club to name a few) on Netflix that recieved the “one season and done” treatment. Not that it’s all Netflix at fault.
    So disappointing tho.
    I don’t even speak Korean but have no issues reading subtitles on a good show. Bring it back Netflix.

  17. I enjoyed the series very much, the characters were believable and charming. I think another season would be fantastic. Endless amounts of criminal cases and plenty room for this romance to evolve.

  18. But how can it be renewed if Kang Tae Oh goes for his army enlistment?? Unless this can be his first project upon his return?? Yay, my favourite whale couple! We ‘whale’ wait for your return!

  19. I’m confused. I just finished watching all the seasons, I think there were four, only a month ago- and loved it. Now, when I try to find it again it is only in weekly episodes?

  20. This is one of the most fascinating shows that I have recently watched. The storyline of an autistic female attorney is eye-opening and very compelling to watch. The characters are so interesting, as the actors do an amazing job! Each case is not only humorous at times but truly keeps my attention to the end. It would be a real shame if there was not a season two. Let me answer your question with a question. How can a story run its course when each episode is based on a different court case that is extremely different and so much fun to watch? Please do not cut this show short…it has great potential! Absolutely LOVE the whales!!!
