Renewed Or Cancelled?

Fishbowl Wives is an 8 episode Japanese drama, playing out as part-anthology and part-romantic drama.

This 8 episode drama has been quite the turbulent ride, but after that ambiguous ending, you may be wondering if this one’s been renewed or cancelled.


What is Fishbowl Wives about?

Fishbowl Wives is a romantic drama, depicting the trials and tribulations of six different women and their estranged relationships. At the center of this happens to be Sakura, who’s stuck in an abusive relationship with partner Takuya. When she finds solace in a goldfish owner called Haruto, the pair hit it off immediately.

Revolving around that are various other women and their relationship woes too.

We have coverage for Fishbowl Wives across the site, including recaps for all 8 episodes and a full season review. Feel free to check them out HERE!


Has Fishbowl Wives been renewed for season 2?

At the time of writing, Fishbowl Wives has not been renewed for a second season. However, given the nature of the ambiguous ending, that could change.

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 (ala. Squid Game, Bridgerton & Irregulars) Other times, it can take months before Netflix make a decision over a show’s future.

So far, Fishbowl Wives has had a rather lukewarm reception from both critics and audiences alike.

Based on this, along with the rumblings that the story is now finished, we predict that Fishbowl Wives will not be renewed for a second season.

We’ll be sure to update this section with accurate details over the coming weeks and months when we know more!


What we know about season 2 so far:

Barely anything is known about season 2 at this point, given Netflix have not green-lit a sequel. However, the conclusion does leave the main plot line somewhat resolved, although the ambiguousness of our main couple does leave that door open for more.

If Netflix do decide to renew this, expect this to be explored in more detail and potentially to include more relationships from different apartment complex members.

We’ll be sure to update this page in the future when more information is known!

  1. I can’t believe Fishbowl Wives ended this way.
    I am glad to see I am not the only one disappointed.
    Out of all the movies I have watched thus far, for the first time, I was so upset at such an ending. How could Netflix allow us to drop us off a cliff like this! …..adding to the COVID-19, high gas and food prices, war in Ukraine, innocent people dying there, homelessness in the United States alone,….makes me think Netflix is happy to leave us in torment.
    Will you leave us so bewildered like this or will you bring another season of Fishbowl Wives!!!

  2. Yes! I need season 2! I love the romance, storyline, music. The story ended so abruptly.

  3. Please please continue this wonderful engaging show with at least a second season !!!!! I loved the first, but I must know more!!!!

  4. Omg, enjoyed the series please don’t let us hang…second season please thecending made me cry…

  5. Oh my gosh, Please continue this show!
    The story itself is so full of romance, female empowerment & triumph that I find it absolutely captivating.
    I keep checking regularly for more episodes. I’ve told a lot of people to look for this show because of the quality of the screenwriting & the acting combined in this drama.
    Keep it coming, please.
    Avid fan.
