Has Our Beloved Summer been renewed for Season 2?

Renewed Or Cancelled?

Our Beloved Summer is a wonderful little romantic k-drama, starring both Kim Da-Mi and Choi Woo-Sik in the lead roles. Although this is an SBS Original, it’s also currently streaming on Netflix too.

Generally each episode can be found there shortly after broadcast on Mondays and Tuesdays, with the hard-working subtitle team translating quickly.

This 16 episode drama has been a real treat over the weeks but now that the show has ended, you may be wondering if this one’s been renewed or cancelled..


What is Our Beloved Summer Season 1 about?

Our Beloved Summer is a vibrant and nicely written romantic drama. The story resolves around Yeon-Su and Choi-ung, two characters who had a real love/hate relationship at school. After filming  documentary together, their little feud soon grows to friendship…and then a relationship.

After a bad break-up, the pair haven’t spoken to one another since school. Fast forward to the present and the pair find themselves thrust into one another’s lives once more. Will they rekindle their romantic feelings?

We have extensive coverage on Our Beloved Summer across the site, including ongoing recaps for all 16 episodes. Feel free to check them out HERE!


Has Our Beloved Summer been renewed for season 2?

At the time of writing, SBS has not renewed Our Beloved Summer for season 2. Given the respectable 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 3.2% nationwide and has been growing steadily, increasing to highs of 5.2% during episode 12. Given this is an early-week drama, that’s pretty good

Based on this there is a possibility that Our Beloved Summer may be renewed. However, given most k-dramas wrap up their stories in a single season – we predict that Our Beloved Summer 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, the ending does leave a possible tantalizing teaser, with the pair about to film their final documentary while they’re married. Could this be a springboard for a second season?

This 16 episode drama has now finished so we’ll have to wait and see if this one’s greenlit or not.

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