The nail-biting horror series will be back to plunge fans back into the intense world where monsters are lurking everywhere outside. As we eagerly anticipate what lies ahead for our favorite characters, one can only imagine the new challenges they will face and the shocking revelations that await them on another thrilling journey as Hyun-soo and other residents shield themselves inside the building in the hope of surviving as long as they can!
Hence, if you are one of those who want to get clarity about the series’ current status, then we can assure you that you have reached the right place to know all your answers about the much-anticipated second season, which we definitely think is going to captivate the audience just like the first season, which received critical acclaim and international attention!
For context, Sweet Home was the first South Korean series to enter Netflix’s Top 10 in the United States, reaching as high as third. The show was viewed by 22 million paid subscribers worldwide in the first 4 weeks of its release and appeared in the Netflix top 10 in more than 70 countries. Hence, it makes sense why fans are buckling up and getting ready for another chapter of Sweet Home! Here is everything we know so far about the highly anticipated release date of Netflix’s Sweet Home Season 2.
Sweet Home Season 2 Release Date Updates: When will it premiere on Netflix?
It’s been a while since we got to see the first season of this South Korean apocalyptic horror television series, which is based on the Naver webtoon of the same name by Kim Carnby and Hwang Young-chan for Netflix, and we are aware of how much the fans have been awaiting its official return. While it’s encouraging to see that interest in the show hasn’t completely waned, we do have some unfortunate news to share with you. We hate to break this to our readers, but the new season will not return in September 2023!
We are certain that this is a bit disappointing, and we’re aware that you’re on high alert to get some details about the release date. So, we would like to clear up the fact that there is no doubt that this popular series will be making its official return to the network sooner than everyone’s expectations! As of writing this, we can assure the readers that the potential release date for the second season hasn’t been disclosed, but it is scheduled to be released sometime around late 2023, just like the first season, with December being the most likely release window in the fourth quarter.
Due to this, there is no way that the brand-new season will return to Netflix in September 2023! We’ll just have to wait and see what the streaming platform has in store for the fandom. Moreover, if we take the prior seasons into consideration with a bit of speculation, then the new season will pick the same time slot, which is 12:00 a.m. (PT), and 3:00 a.m. (ET) for its worldwide debut. Likewise, we would want to emphasize that this is all guesswork at this time, and fans should keep an eye on it.
In the meantime, we are hopeful that everything will go according to plan and that the fans will soon be able to get their hands on the highly anticipated new episodes of Sweet Home Season 2. So, while you wait for the release date announcement, check out the official renewal announcement of seasons 2 and 3, as confirmed on Netflix’s official YouTube channel, below:

Sweet Home Season 2 Official Trailer: Has it been released?
As there is still time for promotional efforts to begin, the network has not yet published any new teasers or trailers for the forthcoming season. If you haven’t streamed the first season yet, we encourage readers to do so in the meantime. As for you, we’ve put up a thorough synopsis of the first season below:
The first season begins with Cha Hyun-su moving into the rundown Green Home, where he witnesses a disturbing sight in his neighbor’s apartment. As a state of emergency is declared, the residents tie up Pyeon Sang-wook, who has been bitten; Hyun-su is unable to ignore a family in distress. An unexpected savior protects the children from harm as Hyun-su, together with Yoon Ji-su and Jung Jae-heon, tries to bring them to safety.
Critical information about the monsters is made public; the residents are split on what to do with Hyun-su, and Lee Eun-hyeok suggests they hold a vote. Tasked with carrying out dangerous missions, Hyun-su heads back to retrieve Han Du-sik, and Sang-wook stops at nothing to finish what he started. Seon-yeong confronts the greatest monster in her life; leaving the building, Seo Yi-kyung heads to her fiancé’s office in search of answers.
Hyun-su saves the others from an attack, and Eun-hyeok announces a plan to venture outside for resources. With few options, Ji-su agrees to take a big risk, and Yi-kyung returns to Green Home just in time. When outlaws take over the building, the residents see how humans can be even more barbaric than the monsters. In the end, a military leaflet promises a route to safety, but the group is reluctant to trust it. Later, Hyun-su is exposed to a new perspective on his condition.
