This article discusses whether there will be a season 2 of the Netflix K-Drama series Hellbound and its renewed or canceled status. It does not contain spoilers
With Netflix intensely investing in K-Drama for the last few years, every time a new series comes out, fans scurry around to find out if a continuation will be on the horizon. Certainly, with Squid Game, it was a thoroughly searched question, and we are still not entirely sure if we will be getting another season of that.
Hellbound is an addictive 6-chapter K-Drama series that mixes fantasy elements with religious angling and conspiratorial events. It’s a well-mixed recipe and an instant audience pleaser. So, naturally, there’s only one question.
Will there be a Hellbound season 2 – renewed or canceled status
At present, there isn’t any official word whether Hellbound will be renewed, however, we can speculate on the likelihood that a new season will be coming to our screens.
K-Drama has a long history of one-season hurrahs, however, in recent times, production companies have managed to secure casts for further seasons. Look at Hospital Playlist for instance — they managed to bring that popular cast back to please the fans. And now, we have such series like Love (ft. Marriage and Divorce) which is rumored to be getting a third season.
But, probably the most relatable K-Drama example is Kingdom. Netflix’s most popular K-Drama series on their streaming service. If Hellbound can reach similar heights and even get half the viewing figures Kingdom got, it would be hard for Netflix to say no to a new season.
Another factor is ratings. While Netflix loves viewing figures for most decisions, K-Drama has a critical but loving following. While we gave Hellbound a good rating, the series would benefit from global acclaim in order to succeed a second season.
However, to stick our necks out. We predict that there will be a season 2 of Hellbound. The concept feels too good for Netflix to let go.
