This article discusses (or speculates) whether there will be a season 2 of the K-Drama series Cleaning Up and its renewed or cancelled status.
What was season 1 all about?
The K-Drama series Cleaning Up is a remake of the British drama series of the same name. It follows three cleaners who are eager to change their destinies after accidentally hearing insider trading information at the firm they work at.
Actress Yum Jung-ah returns (SKY Castle), and she stars as Eo Yong-mi, a cleaner, and leader of her family. However, she is in trouble, as the series will reveal that loan sharkers are continuously harassing her house. Joining the cleaners is Ahn In-kyung (played by Jun So-min) and Meng Soon-ja (played by Kim Jae-hwa) — Yong-mi appears to have a complicated relationship with them.
Cleaning Up took over JTBC’s time slot previously occupied by My Liberation Notes, so it was following big shoes.
- Yum Jung-ah as Eo Yong-mi.
- Jun So-min as Ahn In-kyung.
- Kim Jae-hwa as Meng Soon-ja.
Will there be a season 2 of the K-Drama series Cleaning Up – renewed or cancelled status
Status: not renewed/ TBC
As we write this article, Cleaning Up has not been renewed for a second season. However, it’s not unusual for the industry to wait until they make a decision on renewal. As we know, most K-Dramas tend to enjoy a single-season story and wrap things up conclusively by the finale. So once we have seen the conclusion, we’ll be able to sense what the writers have in mind. However, that doesn’t mean it will not be renewed. While the K-Drama industry tends to enjoy single-season stories, the trend of second and third seasons has increased in the last 12 months.
What about ratings?
Little has been said about the ratings for Cleaning Up in the industry, however, it has enjoyed increased ratings in recent weeks. For instance, Cleaning Up achieved respectful ratings with episode 6, earning a nationwide average of 2.8%. It has been competing with Alchemy of Souls, which continues to soar in ratings.
We suspect this series will not be renewed, but we will keep you posted.
