After a breathtaking performance by the first season of Sweet Home and a cliffhanger that makes you restless, the fans have been itching for a second season of the fabulous show.
We get a lot of rumors and news about it every day among which most are fake. Here is what we know about the second season of Sweet Home from trusted leaks and rumors.
Looking Back at Season 1
Sweet Home season 1 was a South Korean Apocalyptic Horror story. It is based on a Naver webtoon with the same name which had over 2.1 billion recorded views. Which is a lot of views considering a webtoon!
The story follows Cha Hyun-Soo who leaves his house after the tragic death of his family and moves to an apartment. But soon enough, monsters start appearing that are trying to wipe out humanity.
The people in the same building are trapped inside and they find that the monsters are everywhere outside the building. Cha-Hyun-Soo and other residents prepare to shield themselves from the monsters while hiding in the building in hopes of making it out alive.
Before Squid Game, Sweet Home was dominating the charts and was the most-watched Korean series. And now fans wait desperately for a new season.
Will there be Sweet Home Season 2?
For now, there has been no official announcement from Netflix regarding the renewal of the series. But we can be assured that a season 2 will be coming because the viewership and demand for the next season of Sweet Home are very high.
