This article discusses the likelihood of Tomorrow Season 2 and may contain some very minor spoilers for the first season.

Tomorrow has been a very mixed bag. From confounding episodes to really quite poignant ones, it has had a ton of issues with both tone and worldbuilding but has somehow managed to cohere into a decent fantasy series about tough subjects and moral dilemmas. It’s also close to ending, so fans will rightly be turning their attention toward its possible future. And that’s where we come in.

Renewed or canceled status – will there be a Tomorrow Season 2?

Status: TBC

Netflix have such an abundance of weekly k-dramas that it’s hard to keep on top of them, and that also means all of them being renewed is very implausible. Viewership is, as ever, the one vital metric, which explains how Love (ft. Marriage and Divorce) has just enjoyed a third season even if the majority of the fanbase didn’t. Your one-stop-shop for this kind of information is Netflix Top 10, which tends to give a pretty decent idea of how certain shows are performing, and it might be telling that Tomorrow isn’t currently listed there.

That isn’t to say there’s no hope for another season. The show has a pretty dense world that can’t possibly be explored fully within one season, and the potential for further stories is virtually infinite. But the juice has to be worth the squeeze, and Netflix aren’t going to commit to squeezing anything that they don’t feel will produce a return on their investment. Tomorrow has been decently popular, but it hasn’t set the world alight, and on that basis, I would hazard a guess that the chances of a continuation are pretty slim.

What is Tomorrow?

From IMDb:

Made half-human and half-spirit by accident, a young man is employed by a company of grim reapers in the underworld to carry out special missions.

The “special missions” described above tend to be matters of imminent suicide, and deciphering the circumstances around those suicides forms the meat of the episodes, which sometimes spread across multiple installments and are sometimes one-and-done. There’s a fair amount of variety here, but most of the subjects — as you’d expect — are quite heavy, ranging from eating disorders to grief and other forms of trauma.

    Tomorrow is superb – I don’t understand why it doesn’t have more love – everyone I’ve recommended it to has loved it as much as I have. The characters are so engaging – I love the seriousness but also the comedy elements. I can’t wait to see what happens with Miss Koo and Mr Park – the chemistry between them is clear to see. Netflix need to bring us more of this!

    Tomorrow is an emotional and engaging series. I would like to see a Season 2 and if Netflix won’t promote it and series like it, it’s time for me to move on.
