Has The Eighth Sense been renewed for Season 3?

At the time of writing, the makers of the show have not renewed The Eighth Sense for season 2. Given the popularity of the show, as well as the love showered by fans to season 1, one could expect the romance BL drama to be renewed for another follow-up season.

The first season of The Eighth Sense was released on the international streaming platform – Gagaoolala as well as Viki on March 29 for five weeks. Fans have rated the show really well on websites like MyDramaList among others. Each episode of The Eighth Sense has seen a consistent rating between 9 and 9.5 out of 10 for all ten episodes.

Officially, the show has not been renewed for a third season yet. However, given the popularity of the show and the number of fans requesting for this angsty drama to be renewed for another season, we can hope for The Eighth Sense to be renewed for a new season.

With that being said, there is a very low chance for the show to be renewed for a second season given the fact that most Korean BL dramas often run only for one season. We predict that The Eighth Sense will not be renewed for another season but we will be sure to update this page when there is more news from the makers.

What we know about The Eighth Sense Season 2 so far:

Most Korean BL dramas are reserved for one season but given the fact that fans of The Eighth Sense are theorizing the ending of Season 1, one could expect the show to be renewed for a second season on public demand. The show concluded on a cryptic note with Jae-won and Ji-hyun driving into the night.

It can be expected that since Jae-won chose to ignore his trauma rather than face it head-on, the couple could meet with an accident that could result in Ji-hyun’s death, forcing Jae-won to process the death of his brother. The final episode also saw Jae-won getting mad at Ji-hyun when he joked about dying. This could well be another hint at the possible trajectory of the second season of The Eighth Sense.

Since the makers of the show themselves captioned an Instagram post as ‘The Eighth Sense Season 1’ fans of the Korean BL are speculating that the second season of the show could already be in the works. This could be a major clue to the upcoming release of the new season of The Eighth Sense Season 2. We generally aim to update this page when more information becomes available.
