Nonetheless” was developed by Kim Ga-ram and Jung Won for a South Korean television network. The love story was inspired by the eponymous Naver webtoon. The plot centers on a young couple who are drawn to each other but are hesitant to pursue a romantic connection. Each of them has baggage from their past that makes them wary of really committing to the other. The series began on JTBC in South Korea in June 2021 and later made its way to Netflix.
Both the main cast and the supporting cast have received a lot of recognition for their roles. Many commented on how familiar the characters felt. The show’s refreshing qualities in exploring relationships from a different aspect than what K-drama fans are used to have attracted a large fanbase. However, the show’s pacing is too slow for some viewers. Now that the first season is over, you’re probably wondering if there will be a second. In any case, here is everything we know about a possible sequel!
Nevertheless Season 2 Renewal Status
At this time, it appears like neither Netflix nor JTBC is interested in giving the show a second season. The Korean drama has quickly become a fan favorite on the streaming service. The plot was unique, and many people like it for that reason. Its fate, however, is uncertain. JTBC’s move is significant despite Netflix’s ownership of the majority of K-dramas. When it comes to keeping K-dramas on air, ratings at home are crucial. The show’s success elsewhere and on Netflix didn’t translate to viewers in Korea, though.
The premiere episode was seen by 2.207% of all Americans, while subsequent episodes saw a steady fall in viewership. There was a decrease in ratings for the ninth episode, which gained only 0.8%. Therefore, the likelihood of it being renewed is low. The show also had a defined beginning, middle, and finish, which is indicative of how JTBC planned for it to function as a limited series. A second season of Nevertheless could happen if Netflix decides to bring the show back.
Nevertheless Season 1 Recap
Na-bi and Jae-eon are the main characters. Each one has its own unique characteristics. Na-bi is just a regular lady who wants to settle down with a nice guy. But because of what transpired in her past engagement, she now has little faith in committed partnerships.
