This article discusses (or speculates) whether there will be a season 2 of the K-Drama series Today’s Webtoon and its renewed or cancelled status.

What was season 1 all about?

Today’s Webtoon follows a woman who struggles with her colleagues to mature into a webtoon editor after joining an editorial department. On Ma-eum joined this department despite the odds against her. In the past, On Ma-eum had to quit her athletic career after an upsetting accident where she tore her ankle ligament. Her life changes when she delivers food to a webtoon editorial department. And lo and behold, Today’s Webtoon is born!

This K-Drama series occupied the SBS timeslot previously occupied by the popular show, Why Her?

Will there be a season 2 of the K-Drama series Today’s Webtoon – renewed or cancelled status

Status: not renewed/ TBC

As we write this article, Today’s Webtoon 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?

Ratings are a good indication of whether a K-Drama might return. In recent weeks, Today’s Webtoon has fared well against its competitors. For its ninth episode, Today’s Webtoon rose to a nationwide rating of 2.9 percent, even with intense competition from Big Mouth, which airs at the same time. Ratings have stayed respectful for most of the season. However, ratings haven’t shown anything spectacular, so time will tell!

The series does have a great concept, so let’s hope it is renewed. We’ll keep you posted!
