One of Netflix’s latest weekend k-dramas — airing alongside Tomorrow and My Liberation Notes — Our Blues has been a consistently popular slice of life drama set on Jeju Island, concerning the lives of its inhabitants. While it hasn’t set the world alight in terms of popularity, it has done fairly well for itself in a pretty crowded marketplace, and fans will likely be wondering about the show’s potential future as we approach the end of its 20-episode run. Here’s everything we know.
Renewed or cancelled status — will there be an Our Blues Season 2?
At the time of writing, neither Netflix nor tvN, where the show airs in its native Korea, has announced plans to renew the series for a second outing. Considering that most Korean shows are limited to one season, the likelihood of a continuation is slim in this case. Netflix Top 10 has featured Our Blues in its most-watched non-English TV shows for the past three weeks, though, a pattern which will likely be sustained throughout the rest of its run, lending credence to the idea that the show might be popular enough to justify extending.
Still, this would be a little out of character, and with the k-drama slate so full on the streaming platform, I’d still lean towards the idea that this is the last we’ll see of the show.
