Renewed Or Cancelled?
Why Her is the latest weekend law drama, bringing together a decent cast and an intriguing story across 16 episodes.
If you’ve been following this one, you may be wondering if this has been renewed or cancelled.
What is Why Her Season 1 about?
Why Her is the latest law drama, one that revolves around Oh Soo-Jae, a lawyer talented enough to become the youngest partner at TK Law Firm. This is widely regarded as the best in South Korea.
Soo-Jae is driven to win cases through her self-righteous principles. She’s lived her life to achieve success… until one case causes her to become demoted as an adjunct professor at a law school.
Whilst there, she meets Gong Chang, a student with a painful past but a warm heart. He falls in love with Soo-Jae.
Contrasting these two is Choi Tae-Kook, the chairman of TK Law Firm. He’ll do anything to satisfy his desires, regardless of how illegal or immoral it is.
We have extensive coverage of Why Her across the site, including ongoing recaps for all episodes. Feel free to check them out HERE!
Has Why Her been renewed for season 2?
At the time of writing, SBS have not renewed Why Her for season 2. Given the 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 6.0% share nationwide but since then, the show has been hovering around a 9.2% share, regularly in the top 4 of shows over the weekend which is very impressive.
However, given most k-dramas wrap up their stories in a single season, it’s very rare to find these sort of shows renewed. Given this is a law drama, there is a possibility it could be expanded but given the conspiratorial story, we predict Why Her 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 always the possibility that the actors return for a follow-up. There would certainly be scope to expand but at this point, we don’t see this one being renewed.
We generally aim to update this page when more information becomes available.
