If you loved the To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before film series based on Jenny Han’s book trilogy, then we have some great news for you as a new love story, “XO, Kitty,” from the same universe is now available to stream on Netflix, which has excited the fandom more than ever! They quickly turned to binge-watching all ten episodes, which unfold the story of teen matchmaker Kitty, who reunites with her long-distance boyfriend at the same Seoul high school attended by her late mother.
After looking at the plot, we are assuming that it will become one of the most-watched shows this weekend on the streaming platform due to the massive interest shown by the fandom, who will love to explore Kitty’s journey of finding love. Especially if you look at how the show ended, we are certain, questions relating to its early renewals will start popping up all over social media. So, it’s safe to say that the fans are already speculating if there will be a second season or not.
If you’re wondering the same thing, then you’ve come to the right place! We’ve compiled a quick summary of everything you need to know about the current status of XO, Kitty Season 2.
Is XO, Kitty renewed for Season 2?
Right now, there has been no official statement from Netflix regarding the renewal, as the first season premiered a few hours ago, which makes it impossible for the network to assess the show’s overall reception before confirming its approval for another season, especially when the chances of ending the series with the first one are not off the table.
Hence, if the show is able to perform remarkably well by maintaining its overall reception by being on the top 10 list around the world in the coming weeks.
Then there is a chance for it to get approved for a second season, just like other major original series on the streaming service. So, there is a high possibility that Netflix might decide to continue the series once the overall reception has been evaluated after checking out the total percentage of those who watched the show in its entirety.
If the viewership is able to maintain at least 50% in the next two to three weeks, the renewal might be announced a month or two after the premiere. In the end, the decision to renew the second season will likely come down to Netflix’s ratings and whether or not they see enough interest from viewers to justify another season.
If you want to receive information on the potential renewal and release date of XO, Kitty Season 2 on Netflix, viewers may enable notifications.
Until then, fans of this Jenny Han romantic dramedy streaming series can continue to enjoy the new season and speculate about what more plotlines might be explored in a potential second season if it gets renewed in the near future. Hence, we urge readers to keep a closer eye on social media to get updates on the second season’s renewal by Netflix.
