Sweet Home, Netflix’s latest Korean-Drama horror series, has gotten off to a really great start. After an impressive first season of the series, plenty of subscribers of the streaming giant are already looking ahead in hopes of Season 2.
Patience is going to be necessary, as Netflix has not renewed sweet home for a second season yet. Sweet Home is a Netflix Original horror Korean-Drama series based on the webtoon comic of the exact same name by Yongchan Hwang.
The series is being produced by Studio Dragon, who’s also been responsible for other popular Korean-Dramas such as Arthdal Chronicles, My Holo Love, Love Alarm, and Crash Landing on You.
Sweet Home has only been made available to stream on Netflix for three days at the time of writing, which means it’s still too early for Netflix to announce the series’s future. The popularity of an Original can significantly impact the time it takes Netflix to announce a series’s renewal.
It can often take the streaming giant several weeks or several months before renewal is announced. Sweet Home is already performing very well across the globe on Netflix and has already made it into 32 different top 10 lists.
In particular, it has already made it to number one on Netflix in Malaysia, South Korea, Philippines, Qatar, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam.

The series has also made it into the US top 10, and at the time of writing, is ranked eighth. Sweet Home in the US top ten will significantly increase the chances of being renewed.
Before the final moments of season 1, we last saw Sang-Wook dying in a pool of his blood after attempting to help Yu Ri. The very last twist of the season was Cha Hyun Soo’s awakening in the military van, driven by a scarless Sang-Wook.
In the moments before the Green Homes collapsed, Eun Hyuk began to bleed the same way an infected would. Despite being buried under the apartment block’s rubble, if Eun Hyuk is going through his metamorphosis, any regenerative abilities could save his life.
Only a small handful of survivors were there, who made it out of Green Homes alive. With the promise of shelter and a haven, it’s more than likely the survivor’s next home won’t be very safe for long.
The filming for the first season took eight months, lasting from the month of June 2019 to the month of February 2020. Assuming production has not already begun on the second season, the earliest fans could expect to see the series return in Summer 2022.
