Netflix’s latest binge-drop k-drama is the deeply melodramatic Remarriage & Desires, a soapy story of revenge that adheres closely to cliche but still delivers a pretty entertaining eight-episode outing. The show’s still pretty new, but since it’s almost guaranteed to develop a vocal fanbase, the question of the show’s future is a relevant one. As such, here’s everything we know so far.
Will there be a Remarriage & Desires Season 2?
As usual, it’s a little early to tell. While we don’t have any official confirmation of the show’s future, we can certainly speculate, and speculate we shall!
While I would, as ever, advise you to keep an eye on Netflix Top 10 in order to gauge this show’s popularity on the platform, I don’t think the future looks too bright here, folks. While the show itself is mostly fine, it’s occupying territory that has already been firmly colonized by more popular and, frankly, better shows with similar themes and drama. A decently-sized following is virtually a given, if only on the strength of the genre’s popularity, but the chances of that following growing into something that’d really be able to move the needle for the streaming giant are relatively slim.
And while the finale didn’t necessarily conclude everything, and left the door open for a potential second season if Netflix chose to take that route, I actually think some of the mystique and ambiguity is better left in the audience’s imagination. I might be in the minority there, but with most of the main plot wrapped up nicely, I see little reason to continue if it isn’t absolutely necessary (and no, financial viability doesn’t count as a necessity, artistically speaking.)
