Renewed Or Cancelled?
Snowdrop is a historical K-drama, starring both Jung Hae-In and Kim Ji-Soo in the lead roles. Although this is a JTBC Original, it’s also currently streaming on Disney+, which is available in certain regions.
Generally each episode can be found there after broadcast on Saturdays and Sundays, with the hard-working subtitle team translating rather quickly.
This 16 episode drama has been a bit of a turbulent ride over the weeks, but you may be wondering if this one’s been renewed or cancelled.
What is Snowdrop about?
Snowdrop is the first Disney+ exclusive K-drama, and it’s quite the controversial one, ruffling feathers with Korean citizens and reportedly being rewritten several times over the months.
The story is set in 1987, deep within the period of history where South Korea was governed by a dictatorial government.
When grad student Soo-Ho is hidden in Hosu Women’s University by Eun Yeong-Ro, a forbidden romance between the two blossoms, with complications occurring when shocking details about Soo-Ho are revealed.
We have ongoing coverage on Snowdrop across the site, including recaps for all 16 episodes. Please do be patient with us while we catch up on this one! Feel free to check them out HERE!
Has Snowdrop been renewed for season 2?
At the time of writing, JTBC has not renewed Snowdrop for season 2. Given the way this drama has been received in Korea, plus the ratings over the weeks, it seems unlikely that this one will be renewed but stranger things have happened!
The ratings began with a modest 2.9% nationwide and has been dwindling between 1.6% and 3% over the weeks. The highest rating has been episode 7, which increased to highs of 3.2%. Given this is a weekend drama with stiff competition, that’s pretty low.
Based on this, coupled with how quickly JTBC have been dropping multiple episodes across the week, it seems very unlikely that Snowdrop will be renewed.
On top of that, most k-dramas wrap up their stories in a single season so we predict that Snowdrop 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, there is a possibility that JTBC do renew this, depending on how the ending is received from audiences so we’ll have to wait and see.
We generally aim to update this page when more information becomes available.
