Will There be a The World of the Married Season 2?

‘The World of the Married’ is the highest-rated K-drama in cable television history to date. Upon its launch, the show instantly garnered immense critical acclaim for its screenplay, direction, and performances. Packed with intense plotlines and multiple cliffhangers, the story is realistic, stimulating, and pushes boundaries by addressing issues such as adultery, workplace racism, life after divorce, social- and gender- inequality. Since most of these topics are rarely discussed openly in Korean society, the drama took fiction to new heights in the country. After managing to make a huge impact with such a powerful message, fans are wondering if there will be a ‘The World of the Married’ season 2. Here is everything we know about it.

The World of The Married Season 2 Release Date

‘The World of the Married’ season 1 premiered on March 27, 2020, on the JTBC network in Korea. It came to an end after spanning 16 episodes on May 16, 2020. You can watch all the episodes on Viu.

Toward the end, the finale wraps up the story in its signature unpredictable style. The main characters make their personal choices and the ending leaves us spellbound. And it seems that the first installment has wrapped up the plot with full closure. So, does this mean, there won’t be a season 2? Sadly, that’s what it appears like.

Even the reactions of the cast seem to echo our thoughts. On May 15, 2020, the stars shared their thoughts on the hit K-drama nearing its end. Kim Hee Ae (who plays Ji Sun Woo) offered her thanks to the crew as she bid her farewell. The veteran actress also expressed her gratitude to fans for their immense interest and love for the series. Park Hae Joon (Lee Tae Oh) added: “I think I’ll miss the filming set. I was really happy that we were receiving so much interest [from viewers], but that also increased my sense of responsibility and pressure.” He went on to say: “I will work hard to show you even better things. Director Mo Wan Il, Kim Hee Ae, and everyone in the cast worked really hard, and I hope that all of the viewers stay healthy as well.”

Yes, the cast members have already said their goodbyes. And noting the way in which the story wraps up, it appears that the show was originally conceptualized as a one-off. Hence, ‘The World of the Married’ season 2 most likely stands cancelled. In the rare scenario that the makers decide to renew the show, we can expect its second edition to premiere sometime in 2022.
