Renewed or cancelled? Will there be a Hospital Playlist Season 3?

Renewed Or Cancelled?

Hospital Playlist is the wildly popular tvN Korean drama, streaming weekly on Netflix. Generally each episode can be found on Netflix shortly after broadcast, with the hard-working subtitle team translating quickly.

This 12 episode drama continues to deliver all the heartwarming emotion, live performances and medical shenanigans that become synonymous with this show. Just like the first season, Hospital Playlist releases one episode a week.

What is Hospital Playlist Season 2 about?

Hospital Playlist returns and reunites its five leads – Jeon Mi-do, Jo Jung-Suk, Yoo Yeon-Seok, Kim Dae-Myung and Jung Kyung-ho. They’re all surgeons who are long-time friends from medical school and are just as tight-knit off-screen as they are on.

Most of the episodes tackle individual cases and surgeries, although there is a consistent theme of romance and friendship across the season too.

We have extensive coverage on Hospital Playlist season 2 across the site, including ongoing recaps for all 12 episodes. Feel free to check them out by clicking HERE.

Has Hospital Playlist been renewed for season 3?

At the time of writing, tvN has not renewed Hospital Playlist for season 3. However, Director Shin is keen to explore the idea of a three-season show. This is the timeline they originally had in mind but right now, that’s still not set in stone.

The cast members have been told that a third season is not definite and have been encouraged to “schedule whatever projects they want to do.” This seems to hint that a third season could well be coming but right now it seems not in the near-future.

The ratings have been pretty steady for Hospital Playlist too, with each week increasing. Episode 5 saw a sharp increase to highs of 12.3%. We’ll be sure to update this section with more details as the season progresses.

What we know about season 3 so far

Beyond Director Shin’s ideas about a three season structure, there’s not a lot else for us to go on. The cast and crew have been told to schedule projects in the future when this season ends, which seems to hint that season 3 is a long way away.

Unless tvN and Shin do a drastic 180 turn or reveal this as a big surprise, we don’t expect this one to be renewed anytime soon. However, if Hospital Playlist is renewed, it’s safe to assume we won’t be seeing season 3 before 2022.

This 12 episode drama is still ongoing but we’ll be sure to update with links to our finale recap and full season review in the coming weeks!

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