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.
