Unlike many other recent K-Dramas like The Glory and QueenmakerBlack Knight is very deliberately structured and paced to be appealing to as wide a demographic as possible, helped along by the fact it’s playing in very broad and well-established genres. Here’s a quote from our review:

These two are destined for a mentor/mentee relationship that defines the back half of a season that rockets along at an impressive clip. Black Knight delivers action aplenty in one set piece after another, content to let the worldbuilding and plot details be filled in by ungainly mouthfuls of exposition whenever we stop to take a break.

Renewed or canceled status: TBC

At the time of writing, Netflix have not officially renewed or canceled Black Knight, but this is not surprising so soon after its release.

While Korean dramas tend not to have the best track record when it comes to being renewed, it certainly isn’t out of the question. Squid Game is obviously the most prominent example, with what was intended as a limited series being guaranteed a continuation after its immense mainstream popularity.

However, there is plenty more source material to adapt, making potential continuations of 5-8 and Sa-wol’s story very viable. It’ll like depend entirely on how well the show performs.

As usual, we’ll keep this article updated as soon as we know more.
