Renewed Or Cancelled?
Insider is an intriguing and engrossing revenge thriller, with a pretty complicated web of revenge running through this.
If you’ve been following this one, you may be wondering if this has been renewed or cancelled.
What is Insider Season 1 about?
Insider is the latest exciting mid-week K-drama. The story centers on a judicial trainee named Kim Yo-Han. Unfortunately, his world comes crashing down when he learns tragedy has struck his family.
While working undercover to investigate suspected corruption carried out by a prosecutor, Yo-Han finds himself inside the fearsome Seongju Prison. Realizing he’s been betrayed, he sets out to avenge those who have wronged him and his family.
Thankfully, Yo-Han finds an unlikely ally in the form of a shady female entrepreneur named Oh Soo Yeon. She visits him in prison and promises to help him… but only if he helps her too.
We have coverage of Insider across the site, including recaps for most of the episodes. Feel free to check them out HERE!
Has Insider been renewed for season 2?
At the time of writing, JTBC have not renewed Insider 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 2.5% share nationwide but since then, the show has been hovering around a 3.1% share, doing a rather good job to keep things steady and consistent over the weeks.
However, given most k-dramas wrap up their stories in a single season, it’s very rare to find these sort of shows renewed. Given this is a simple revenge story at its heart, we predict Insider will not 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:
Most Korean dramas are reserved to one season 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. There would certainly be scope to expand should the cycle of revenge continue beyond Yo-Han’s targets, but we don’t see this one being renewed.
We generally aim to update this page when more information becomes available.
