Has Twinkling Watermelon been renewed for Season 2? Here’s what we know:


Renewed Or Cancelled?

The genre of fantasy in K-dramas is seeing a massive boost with multiple ongoing dramas being based on fantastical elements. There are very few notable Korean dramas about time travel though, and the current tvN drama, Twinkling Watermelon is one such show that is here to change the game. 

After many fans turned heads because of the confusing title, Twinkling Watermelon has been raking up ratings as the episodes progress. The show stars rising actors like Ryeoun of ‘Adult Trainee’ fame, Choi Hyun-wook of ‘All of Us Are Dead’ fame as well as ‘Business Proposal’s Seol In-a. 

Now that the show has been aired completely, you may be wondering if Twinkling Watermelon has been renewed or cancelled. Well, wonder no more! Here’s what we know about a renewal:

What is Twinkling Watermelon Season 1 about?

The show narrates the story of a CODA (child of a deaf adult) student, Eun-gyeol who has hearing-impaired parents. He has a gift for music and is a model student by day who plays the guitar in a band at night. One day, Eun-gyeol visits a mysterious musical instruments store and travels to a strange place.

There, Eun-gyeol meets Yi-chan, Se-kyeong, and Chang-a who form a band called “Watermelon Sugar”. While this goes on, Yi-Chan tries to pursue Se-kyeong, who is known as the “Cello Goddess” of Seowon Arts High School

Has Twinkling been renewed for season 2?

At the time of writing, tvN has not renewed Twinkling Watermelon for season 2. Given the ratings over the weeks, many fans will definitely want this show to be renewed for a follow-up season.

The show has a 4.9 out of 5 average rating on Google while the show ranking at #1 for the K-drama airing on Monday-Tuesday with an average rating of 4.6%.

Given that most Korean dramas only run for a single season, it will be surprising to see this show being renewed for a follow-up season. Moreover, considering the fact that this drama has another episode remaining, one can hope for Twinkling Watermelon to be renewed for Season 2.

We’ll be sure to update this section with more details as they become available though.

What we know about season 2 so far:

Most Korean dramas are reserved for one season, as detailed above, with the rare exception of ongoing Netflix, Disney+ and Prime Video shows. But with all things considered, it seems unlikely that this one will be renewed.

Twinkling Watermelon is an interesting show and a lot depends on how the story ends. If Eun-gyeol can save his father, Yi-chan from losing his hearing, we can hope see him go back to his life to be a singer. Moreover, if the show were to be renewed for a second season, we can expect more about Eun-yu’s life and everything that she has been keeping from Eun-gyeol about her life.

With all things considered, not much can be said about the possible renewal of Twinkling Watermelon. But based on everything we’ve seen, Twinkling Watermelon will probably not be renewed.

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

  1. There are many loose threads from a first season how to renew in a 2nd, the mysteries of both mothers, one who abandoned, how Eun-Yu’s mother returned from the US, enough to clarify. Maybe it won’t happen but a 2nd season would be very nice

  2. It is unlikely as the author says, but I sure would watch a 2nd season. A good story about Eun-gyeol and Se-kyeong blossoming relationship would be wonderful.

  3. i really want to see season 2 with more focus on choi se gyong and i also want to see ha eun gyeols love life and in general it was the best show i ever saw godd
