When could Sweet Home Season 2 release?
Sweet Home premiered on Netflix in December 2020. A second season has been discussed for some time, but nothing was finalized until June 2022. The show was officially renewed by Netflix in June of last year. As it turns out, Netflix had already revealed the third season with the second. With two seasons revealed at precisely the same time, we think there won’t be a two or three-year lag between seasons 2 and 3 like there was between seasons 1 and 2.
Netflix has not said when the next season will be available. Nevertheless, at the beginning of 2023, Netflix posted a list of Korean dramas set to be aired this year, with Sweet Home season 2 included.
Later, Netflix stated that Sweet Home season 2 would be released in the fourth quarter of 2023. Netflix revealed its autumn 2023 programming in May 2023. Netflix includes Sweet Home Season 2 on that list, implying that the second season would arrive in October or November.
Sweet Home Season 2 plot
The second season continues off where the first season left off, with Cha Hyun Soo and his fellow residents trapped within the building and besieged by monsters. As they try to escape, they face obstacles, including a mysterious man named Sang-Wook, who wants to take senior asthmatic caregiver Park Yu-Ri outside. They are stopped, however, by Ui-Myeong, who thinks that monsters and human beings cannot cohabit and that the military will exterminate those monsters during Operation Golden Hour. Ui-Myeong murders two of those who survived, but Hyun-Soo, who has transformed into a monster, is finally subdued thanks to Du-Sik, who devotes himself in order to cooling Hyun-Soo down.
Sweet Home Season 2 dives further into the characters’ interactions, such as the increasing bond between Sang-Wook and Yu-Ri. It also investigates the story of a vanished med-school student Lee Eun-hyuk, who had been found buried beneath the ruins of the apartment tower. In addition, the season will focus on whether the surviving survivors can be prevented from becoming monsters, as well as if additional actors will be recruited to the cast.
Who will be cast for Sweet Home Season 2?
According to Netflix, Sweet Home season 2 will include a new plot, with protagonist Hyun-soo being taken by the military and the last Green Home residents barely escaping. The majority of the original cast members, including Song Kang, Lee Si-Young, Lee Jin-Wook, Go Min-Si, and Park Gyu-Young, are slated to return in season 2. Nevertheless, the destiny of Lee Eun-Hyuk, played by Lee Do-Hyun, is unclear following his mysterious disappearance in season one.
New characters in Sweet Home Season 2 include Yoo Oh-Sung as Tak In-Hwan, a special forces leader, Oh Jung-Se as Doctor Lim, a vaccine researcher, and Kim Moo-Yeol and Jung Jin-Young as special operations troops. These newcomers are likely to rile up the survivors’ dynamic and offer a new element of intricacy to the story.
