Given the burgeoning popularity of Korean drama on a global scale thanks in large part to streaming services like Netflix and mega-hits like Squid Game and All of Us Are Dead, a show like Juvenile Justice is a much more viable prospect for renewal than it might have been just a couple of years ago. Of course, Netflix has been regularly releasing high-quality k-drama for ages now, but mostly on a twice-weekly basis, as it continues to do with shows like Thirty-Nine. But the full-season binge-release model seems to be becoming increasingly popular for the service. It’s still too early to properly gauge the popularity of this latest release, but fans will inevitably be curious about the likelihood of Juvenile Justice Season 2, so here’s everything we know:

Renewed or canceled status – Will there be a Juvenile Justice Season 2?

Status: TBC

As of right now, it’s simply too early to tell. With shows like this, Netflix like to keep an eye on viewership before making any major decisions, and while Juvenile Justice hasn’t exploded in popularity the way some other Korean releases have, it’s worth keeping an eye on sites like Netflix’s Top 10 to see how the show is doing.

As for the likelihood of a renewal, well, that’s a different story. With the Korean market exploding in mainstream popularity now, Netflix will be on the lookout for popular properties, and Juvenile Justice‘s format is well-suited to a continuation. Given it follows the judges in a juvenile court, there are limitless stories to tell in this arena, although it’s worth considering the possibility that the show might move to a weekly model given its episodic nature.

Across ten episodes, she begins to learn how important issues like systemic inequality, sexism, neglect, trauma, and parental failures all conspire to exacerbate serious youth crime, while her personal and professional lives eventually dovetail.
