If you’ve been gripped by Netflix’s new Korean crime drama Narco Saints (course you have), then you are Most likely wondering if the show will get a season two.
The first season tells the story of an entrepreneur who becomes involved in a government mission to take down a Korean drug lord operating in Suriname. Moreover, it is even based on real events. Fans have obviously been deeply invested in it all – shouting out one cast member in particular.
So here’s everything we know about a Narco Saints season two so far…
Is Narco-Saints season 2 confirmed?
Unfortunately a Narco Saints season two has yet to be confirmed. However, the series only landed on Netflix a week ago, so there’s still time for the streamer to announce a second series.
The good news is that K-drama is not listed as a limited series, making it more likely that there could be more to come. It is also ranked #7 in Netflix’s Top 10 list. So, judging by the popularity of the show, we might see more episodes in the works.
It is worth remembering Narco Saints is based on true events, so a second season would depend on whether there’s more true story left to cover or if the plot might branch off in a different direction.
Who could star in Narco-Saints season 2?
If a season two happens, we hope to see some of the main cast from season one return. S1 saw Squid Game’s Park Hae-soo play the role of Choi Chang-ho, leader of the National Intelligence Service team. Also, fans have been pretty obsessed with fellow cast member Jo Woo-jin, who plays mobster Byeon Ki-tae..
Elsewhere, there’s Ha Jung-woo as Kang In-gu and Hwang Jung-min as Jeon Yo-hwan. So hopefully we’ll see some familiar faces.
What could happen in Narco-Saints Season 2?
Narco Saints the first season is based on a true story, supposedly inspired by the life of Cho Bong Haeng, who ran a drug organization in Suriname. This means that the plot of a potential season 2 should probably be tied to real events. So the storyline would hinge on whether there’s still some true story left to tell or if Netflix can branch out the characters elsewhere.
When could Narco-Saints season 2 be released?
Here is the hope Narco Saints season two *is* confirmed. If so, we expect a second series to hit Netflix in late 2023 at the earliest.
In the meantime, there are plenty of other good things to do.
