At the start of May, Netflix's most-watched K-Drama in 2021 came to an abrupt halt. Fans have been waiting eagerly for information about the renewal of K-Drama since the end. It seems unlikely that Vincenzo will return for another season on Netflix.
Vincenzo, a popular Netflix Original K-Drama romantic-comedy K-Drama created by Studio Dragon is written and produced by Park Jae Bum.
Park Ju Hyeong, eight years old, is adopted by an Italian family. He is then raised in Italy as a member of the Cassono mafia and given the name Vincenzo Cassono. Vincenzo flees Seoul after the murder of his crime head and seeks out 1.5 tonnes of gold hidden beneath the Geumga Plaza. This has been stolen by the Babel Group.
Official Netflix Renewal Status: Pending (08/06/2021)
Vincenzo is not expected to make a return on Netflix for the second season at this time.
Because Vincenzo is an international licensed Original series, Netflix does not have 100% responsibility for its renewal. This is because the South Korean cable channel tvN is ultimately responsible.
Unfortunately, it’s highly unlikely that Vincenzo will be returning for a second season. Thankfully, this has nothing to do with the show’s performance as Vincenzo has been one of the most popular K-Dramas on Netflix in 2021, and is now the 9th highest rated Korean cable-drama in history.
This is because a second season of Vincenzo was not in the plans. Soon Joong-Ki, the Vincenzo actor, said so during an interview with Jazmine Media.
Nothing has been said about Season 2. I’m personally happy that many people want Season 2 to come out, but realistically speaking it’s not coming out, and I don’t think there was ever any Season 2 discussion going on internally.
We often learn that multiple seasons have been planned for a series before it is released. Hospital Playlist is a similar tvN drama and it's a perfect example. We knew in advance that season 2 would see the series return.
A few of the cast members expressed their wish to see Vincenzo again, which is a great thing considering the popularity of the series.
Vincenzo's decision to leave the door open for him was a disappointment for some fans.
Vincenzo/Park Joo Hyung managed to exact his revenge against the Babel Group head, but he had to flee to Malta to escape the fury of the other members of the Babel Group.
Although the consigliere managed to recover the 1.5 tonnes of gold, Vincenzo fled to Malta with the gold.
The story is left open ended, which gives it the opportunity to return to air for another season.
If we’re lucky enough to ever see a second season of Vincenzo, we’ll be waiting a significant amount of time before it arrives on Netflix.
It’ll take several weeks or a few months for screenwriter Park Jae Bum to write a new script and story for the second season. The biggest obstacle to the production of season two is Song Joong Ki's schedule. Song Joong Ki has two projects at the moment. The first is The Youngest Son of a Conglomerate, a jTBC drama. The second is the controversial second season of Arthdal Chronicles.
If the production can tie down Song Joong Ki for a second season then we’d expect to see the K-Drama arrive in either late 2022, or in the first half of 2023.
