An odd release for Valentine’s Day, Fishbowl Wives, adapted from the manga Kingyo Tsuma by Ryô Kurosawa, is a story – several, actually – about marital infidelity. Netflix’s trolling notwithstanding, the eight-part Japanese drama is rife with relevant issues, some uncomfortable scenarios, and a good helping of provocative nudity, so it’ll doubtless amass something of a fanbase. As with any show these days, when money and viewing figures talk louder than anything else, the question on many lips will be whether we’re likely to see a Fishbowl Wives Season 2.
Well, will we?
Renewed or Cancelled status – Will there be a Fishbowl Wives Season 2?
Despite there being no official confirmation quite yet, this show is probably a likelier renewal than some others thanks to its beloved source material, which includes several volumes all ripe for adaptation. The juice has to be worth the squeeze for Netflix, of course, and it’ll be worth keeping an eye on viewing figures in the next week or two on sites like Netflix Top 10, but early signs are certainly promising.
What is the premise of Fishbowl Wives?
Taken from Asian Wiki:
Due to an accident, Sakura Hiraga (Ryoko Shinohara) gave up on her dream. She is now married and her husband runs a hair salon. They live in a luxurious penthouse apartment. Her life seems glamorous and she is envied by everyone. What everyone does not know is that Sakura Hiraga is abused physically and verbally by her husband. She is unable to leave her situation. Sakura Hiraga considers herself a goldfish in a fishbowl. One day, due to a goldfish, she meets a man.
