This article discusses whether there will be season 2 of the Netflix K-Drama series The King’s Affection and its renewed or cancelled status.

The King’s Affection was a surprising hit; we were surprised when it was given the Monday/Tuesday Netflix K-Drama spot. Why not the weekend spot? Instead, Inspector Koo was given the weekend, and low ratings and viewership followed.

The King’s Affection season 1 finished on December 14th, 2021, after 20 intriguing episodes. So, of course, the first thing that comes to mind is…will there be more in this story that viewers can enjoy?

Will there be a season 2 of The King’s Affection – renewed or cancelled status

Status: TBC

At the moment, there has been no confirmation on whether there will be a season 2 of The King’s Affection. And there probably will not be for a while considering the secretive nature of K-Drama commissions. However, we can speculate on the likelihood of a renewal of the much-loved K-Drama series.

First of all, The King’s Affection stormed the Netflix Top 10 stats for weeks, even reaching those highs in the busiest month of the year, December. However, that never seems to be the indication of renewal in the K-Drama world. Secondly, the K-Drama received favorable ratings, which indicates whether there’s a thirst for renewal. But again, you can never tell in the world of K-Drama.

But renewals in the K-Drama world are improving. The Hospital Playlist is a superb example of a renewal that had a lot of uncertainty due to the in-demand requirements of the popular cast, but season 2 managed to get snapped up. However, that was a super popular series and nowhere near the popularity of The King’s Affection.

We have been proven wrong many times before, but we don’t believe that The King’s Affection will be renewed. It did have a happy ending, after all. Why continue something that isn’t broken?

If that does change, we’ll make sure to update you.

    With the ratings the last few episodes provided, and then the award presentations, I have to wonder.. they do have great writers for the show.. so its quite possible story lines could be provided to bring this forward into more than two seasons.. must wait and see.. Ratings and awards speak loud and clear.. Plus, netflix has an accumulated listing of how many viewers have watched the Kings Affection, plus re-watched..
