Renewed or cancelled? Will there be a Nevertheless Season 2?

Renewed Or Cancelled?

Nevertheless is a polarizing JTBC Korean drama, streaming weekly on Netflix. Generally each episode can be found on the streaming giants shortly after broadcast, with the hard-working subtitle team translating quickly.

This 12 episode drama has been quite the slow burn, releasing one episode a week every Saturday and revolving around a realistic depiction of romance for young people.


What is Nevertheless Season 1 about?

Nevertheless tells the story of two people who are attracted to each other but skeptical about love. Na-Bi is a quiet university student, studying art and sculpting. She takes a fancy to Jae-Eon, a confident and toxic guy who ends up romantically linked with Na-Bi.

There are several other subplots interwoven around this, including a well-written same sex pairing of Sol and Ji-Wan.

We have extensive coverage on Nevertheless across the site, including ongoing recaps for all 12 episodes. Feel free to check them out HERE.


Has Nevertheless been renewed for season 2?

At the time of writing, JTBC has not renewed Nevertheless for season 2. Given the steady decline in 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 respectable 2.207% nationwide but has been steadily declining with each passing week. The most recent episode (episode 9) saw that drop to 0.8%. Based on this, and the slow pacing of the show, we predict that Nevertheless will not be renewed.

We’ll be sure to update this section with more details as the season progresses.


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.

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