This article discusses the possibility of Connect Season 2 and whether the Disney+ k-drama has been renewed or canceled.
Disney+ continues to muscle in on the k-drama market with Connect, a genre-blending k-drama from legendary Japanese director Takashi Miike. Across six mind-bending episodes, the series combines a serial killer thriller with sci-fi body horror to mixed results, but it’s a pleasantly off-beat and proudly weird experience that is well worth taking a look at if you’re into the genres or talent involved.
With k-drama now more popular than ever, it’s no surprise that other streaming services are trying to occupy some of the market share, especially since Netflix has a k-drama library that is, at least at present, basically untouchable. The House of Mouse will be looking for a franchisable property to compete with mega-hits like Squid Game. At the very least, it’d be useful for Disney if their platform could at least become known as a go-to space for high-quality k-drama (as if there’s any other kind.)
So, will Connect… connect those dots? Let’s see.
Will there be a Connect Season 2?
Renewed or canceled status: TBC
Connect doesn’t seem to have been planned as a multiple-season project, but depending on how the show does, you never know. Disney will probably keep a close eye on the viewing figures and how much social media traction the show manages to pick up over the next couple of weeks.
Of course, k-dramas do not historically run for more than one season outside of the odd outlier or exceptional circumstances, so a second season isn’t especially likely in that regard. However, the show being based on an existing webtoon and ending on a cliffhanger will certainly help it out. This all having been said, though, we predict that Connect will not be renewed for a second season.
What is Connect about?
Here is the official plot synopsis courtesy of MyDramaList:
A work that depicts the mysterious story of a man who has been deprived of a part of his body by organ hunters and becomes ‘connected’ with a person who has received an organ transplant. Ha Dong Soo is part of a new human race called connect, who has an immortal body, kidnapped by a group of human organ traffickers. His eye is cut out from him. He soon sees something and realizes the man who has his stolen eye is a serial killer. Ha Dong Soo is now able to see what the serial killer sees. He chases after the serial killer to stop him from killing anymore people.
Connect is available to stream on Disney+ and on Hulu in the United States.

Of course there will be a 2. season, look at the cliffhanger, it says everything. Kdramas normally have 16 episodes per season, so you cannot compare this drama to usual k dramas, that’s nonsence.
The Creative Producer of Studio Dragon the famed. Korean Drama production outfit said in several interviews for Korean media that they actually discussed Season 2 with Miike even before finalizing the S1 script for Connect – on the Korea side it’s doing very well topping that OTT in its first week
