Has Remarriage & Desires been renewed for season 2?
At the time of writing, Remarriage & Desires has not been renewed for a second season. Given the ending though, this one is certainly left open for a follow-up series.
Generally Netflix gauge numerous metrics before renewing a show, including how many people initially watch it and then looking at the drop-off rate per episode. With some shows, cancellations or renewals happen quickly (ala. Squid Game, Bridgerton & Irregulars). Other times, it can take months before Netflix make a decision over a show’s future.
So far, Remarriage & Desires has had a pretty good reception from critics and audiences alike, with some absolutely loving this soapy makjang. Compared to other soapy dramas (like Penthouse and Sky Castle) this one doesn’t quite match up.
Having said that, Netflix have a really good track record for renewing K-dramas. We’ve seen All Of Us Are Dead, Love Alarm, Squid Game and more renewed recently. With that in mind, we’re going out on a limb and saying that this will be renewed for a second season.
We’ll be sure to update this section with more details as they become available.
What we know about season 2 so far:
Barely anything is known about season 2 at this point, given Netflix have not green-lit a sequel. If the streaming giants do renew this one, it’s fair to assume Yoo-Hui would be a big part of this storyline, and there’s bound to be a lot of drama with Hye-Seung.
Despite all these questions, we’re assuming it’s only a mater of time before Netflix make a decision on this one. We’re predicting that there will be a season 2. We will aim to update this page when more information becomes available!
