Itaewon Class Season 2 Renewal Status

In particular, the conclusion of the first season provided a happy ending for all of the characters.  Fans of K-dramas would love to see the Danbam team back again, but it will be challenging to develop a plot for season 2 of Itaewon Class based on the events of the show’s first season.

Season 2 of ‘Itaewon Class’ is likely to be ordered given the show’s popularity, especially after the show’s debut on Netflix. Also, if ‘Itaewon Class’ is picked up for a second season, we could see it premiere in 2023.
