Renewed or cancelled? Will there be a Law School Season 2?

Renewed Or Cancelled?

Law School is the latest JTBC Korean drama to land on Netflix. Broadcast at 3pm GMT (8am PT), this 16 episode law drama quickly established itself as a must-watch mid-week entry on the TV calendar.


What is Law School about?

Law School is (unsurprisingly) a law drama centering around a group of kids trying to make it through school and get their law degrees. Along the way numerous cases are presented, including a long-running murder mystery regarding the circumstances involving Professor Seo’s death. This also coincides with an unresolved hit and run which occurred in the past, tying everything together.

Has Law School been renewed for season 2?

At the time of writing, JTBC has not made an official announcement about the future of Law School.

It’s not uncommon for most Korean dramas to round out their stories with a single season, however the recent Westernization of these dramas has led to a lot more renewals that do buck that trend.

SBS’s Penthouse, TV Chosun’s Love ft. Marriage & Divorce and tvN’s Stranger are the more prolific examples of this. We predict that Law School will return for a second season but this is pure speculation at this time.

The ratings have been pretty steady for Law School overall, hovering between 4 and 6% for most of the season according to Nielsen nationwide ratings. Critics and audience scores have been steady too, with the highest rating occurring during episode 13, where the show boasted highs of 6.891%.


What we know about season 2 so far

The cast and crew have expressed their interest in making another season, with Twitter abuzz with news following several interviews on Korean TV. The ending to episode 16 certainly looks poised to usher in a new generation of law students and a new mystery.

However, as mentioned earlier most Korean dramas only serve as a single season so we’ll have to wait and see. For now though, do feel free to check out our episode 16 recap & review which breaks down all the details of the final episode.

Once we receive confirmation of a renewal or cancellation, we’ll be sure to keep you in the loop. We generally update these pages once a week as more information becomes available.
