Renewed Or Cancelled?
Love In Contract is a real romantic treat, with some great characters, a decent premise and an enticing romance at the heart of this one. Whilst the story hasn’t always fired on all cylinders, the characters have been compelling enough to stick with for the long haul.
If you’ve been following this one, you may be wondering if this has been renewed or cancelled. Well, wonder no more! Here’s what we know about a renewal:
What is Love In Contract Season 1 about?
Love in Contract bills itself as a fun and vibrant romantic K-drama. The protagonist here is Cho Sang-Eun, an attractive woman with talent and charm. She works as part of a helper service that provides wives to single people needing partners to take to gatherings specifically tailoring for married couples, like school reunions.
Cho Sang-Eun is good at her job but she ends up getting involved with Jung Ji-Ho and Kang Hae-Jin, juggling her time between the two guys on different days of the week. And wouldn’t you know it? A love triangle starts up! Who will Sang-Eun pick? We’ll have to watch to find out!
We have ongoing coverage of Love In Contract across the site including ongoing recaps for all episodes. You can find that HERE!
Has Love In Contract been renewed for season 2?
At the time of writing, tvN have not renewed Love In Contract 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 3.9% share nationwide but since then, the show has been on a slight downward trajectory through the weeks, petering out to around 2.6/2.7% for some of the later episodes.
Given that most Korean dramas only run for a single season, and the ratings aren’t exactly lighting up the K-drama schedule, we predict Love In Contract will not be renewed.
We’ll be sure to update this section with more details as they become available though.
What we know about season 2 so far:
Most Korean dramas are reserved to one season, as detailed above, 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 for a sequel or a spin-off featuring the same characters. But based on everything we’ve seen, Love In Contract will probably not be renewed.
We generally aim to update this page when more information becomes available.
