Will there be a Season 2 of the K-Drama  series Bitch X Rich – renewed or canceled status

We discuss whether there will be a Season 2 of the K-Drama series Bitch X Rich and its renewed or canceled status. 

When a poor girl named Kim Hye-in is witness to a crime, she’s given a scholarship to her dream school in return for her silence. However, at the prestigious Cheongdam International High School, not everything is as dreamy as she thought it would be.

She enters a world where everything is a power struggle, and as she crosses the door, she instantly becomes the target of the popular girl at school, the rich and spoiled Baek Je-na, while she attempts to keep her scholarship by any means.

This is the story of the K-drama Bitch X Rich, which ended its first season run on Netflix in late June 2023. Since then, fans have been wondering whether we could see another batch of episodes. Here’s what we know!

Will there be a Season 2 of the K-Drama  series Bitch X Rich – renewed or canceled status

As of the posting of this article, no announcement has been made on a second season of the K-drama Bitch X Rich (we will update it when this status changes). However, there are a few reasons to believe that more episodes will come out of the classrooms of Cheongdam International High School.

First of all, K-dramas are taking over the world right now, and because streamers like to follow the latest trends, it’s possible that Netflix will pursue a second season just based on the numbers the show pulled.

Moreover, the series is relatively cheap to produce, so there is a financial reason to do so as well — it’s a title that already has a fanbase, one that could expand to more viewers with new episodes, and one that doesn’t require a lot of money to make.

Above all else, though, we know that Netflix, perhaps more than any other competing streaming service, is branching off all over the globe and is greenlighting projects by and starring people from most countries they are in.

It’s the reason why Money Heist is so popular now outside of Spain or why every once in a while, we get a Norwegian show trending on the platform. It’s also how Squid Game originated.

As the studios look for ways to reduce costs and stay out of North America, where the actors are, as of this posting, on strike, developing South Korean dramas seems like a reasonable decision.

The first season of the Bitch X Rich series was 10 episodes long, so should a second season be greenlit, we probably wouldn’t get it before 2025. But there is no doubt that the people involved have already had discussions about it and possibly even put pen to paper on some of their ideas.

That means that the writing process would be accelerated, and it could be in front of the cameras sooner than we realize.
