Sweet Home was a bloody and rousing start on Netflix. Despite this, it’s taken 18 months for Netflix to officially confirm that season 2 is now in production. Netflix also announced that Sweet Home season 2 is in production. Here’s everything we know so far about Sweet Home season 2 on Netflix.
Sweet Home, a Netflix Original Horror K-Drama Series is based on the webtoon comic by Yongchan Hwang. Studio Dragon produced the series. Studio Dragon is also responsible for popular K-Dramas like My Holo Love and Love Alarm, Arthdal Chronicles and Crash Landing on You.
Netflix Official Renewal Status: Renew (Last Updated on 15/06/2022).
We’re eighteen months on since the release of Sweet Home on Netflix, and finally, the streamer has confirmed that Sweet Home will return for its second season, and is officially in production.
In March 2022 we previously reported that several images on the Instagram page of Song Kang’s manager all but confirmed renewal. Although there was debate over the authenticity of the photo, it is no longer relevant as the series will return.
Sweet Home is also renewed for season 3. This will delight fans. In the video description, it states that “season 2&3 now in production.” This heavily suggests filming could be done back to back for both seasons, with a small break likely to take place in between.
Netflix's popularity can have a significant impact on the length of time required to renew a series. Netflix can take several weeks or even months to announce a renewal, as Sweet Home has shown.
Sweet Home was able to break into 32 top-rated lists on Netflix worldwide in its first month. Sweet Home reached number one in South Korea and the Philippines.
It has reached the top ten in America. With Sweet Home reaching the US top ten, this would have greatly increased the series’ chances of being renewed.
Season 2 of Sweet Home's season finale left plenty for us to consider.
Before the end of season 1, Sang-Wook was seen dying in his own blood. He had attempted to save Yu Ri. Cha Hyun Soo woke up in the military van and was driven by an unfailing Sang-Wook.
Sang Wook could have experienced one of the two possible outcomes. First, Sang Wook may have undergone a metamorphosis or is in the Golden Hour. He will then transform into a monster. Secondly, we last saw Myeong making an escape in a military van after being defeated by Cha Hyun Soo, and as his powers appear to be taking possession of other humans, he could have taken control of Sang Wook’s body.
Eun Hyuk started to experience the symptoms of an infection in the minutes before Green Homes fell apart. Eun Hyuk, who is now buried beneath the debris of an apartment block, could still save his life if he uses his regenerative powers.
Eun Hyuk's desire to bring his family back together could be the trigger that led him to turn. Despite not being the biological brother of Eun Yoo, he still feels responsible for his sister’s welfare.
Yi Kyung spent much of the first season searching for Nam Sang Won, her fiancé. Yi Kyung, despite not honoring her agreement with the military has joined them and will be hunting for Cha Hyun Soo. If she can capture Cha Hyun Soo, she may finally learn of her fiance’s fate.
A small number of survivors survived to make it out alive from Green Homes. With the promise of shelter and a safe haven, it’s more than likely the survivor’s next home won’t be very safe for long. Eun Hyuk stated that safety cannot be guaranteed, and they can't stop survivors turning into monsters.
Eun Soo feels for Cha Hyun Soo. A happy or tragic reunion might be in the offing.
Now that production has been confirmed, we can speculate about when season 2 of Netflix's series will release.
Season 1 filming took 8 months and lasted from June 2019 through February 2020. Filming could continue until February 2023 if production only began in June 2022. This could mean that Sweet Home may not return until December 2023.
Estimated Release Date: Mid-2023
