Will Netflix K-drama Narco-Saints get a season 2? Here's all the info

If you've been gripped by new Netflix Korean crime drama Narco-Saints (course you have), then you're probably wondering whether the show will get a season two.

Season one tells the story of an entrepreneur who becomes involved in a government mission to take down a Korean drug lord operating in Suriname. Plus, it's even based on true events. Fans have obviously been thoroughly invested in the whole thing - shouting out one cast member in particular.

So, here's everything we know about a Narco-Saints season two so far...

Has Narco-Saints season 2 been confirmed?

Unfortunately a Narco-Saints season two hasn't been confirmed just yet. 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 the K-drama isn't listed as a limited series, making it more likely that there could be more to come. It's also shot up to No.7 in Netflix's Top 10 list. So, judging by the show's popularity, we might see further instalments in the works.

It's also worth remembering that Narco-Saints is based on true events, so a second season would depend on whether there's more of the true story left to cover, or whether the plot could branch out in a different direction.

Who could star in Narco-Saints season 2?

If a season two goes ahead, we'd hope to see some of season one's lead cast returning. S1 saw Squid Game's Park Hae-soo starring as National Intelligence Service team leader Choi Chang-ho. What's more, fans have been pretty obsessed with fellow cast member Jo Woo-jin, who plays gangster Byeon Ki-tae.

Elsewhere, there's Ha Jung-woo as Kang In-gu, Hwang Jung-min as Jeon Yo-hwan. So let's hope we'd see some familiar faces.

What might happen in Narco-Saints season 2?

Narco-Saints season one is based on a true story, thought to take inspiration from the life of Cho Bong Haeng, who ran a drugs organisation in Suriname. That means that the plot for a potential season two would likely need to be linked to true events.

When might Narco-Saints season 2 be released?

Here's hoping Narco-Saints season two *does* get confirmed. If so, we'd expect a second series to arrive on Netflix in late 2023 at the earliest.

In the meantime, there's plenty of other good stuff to get stuck into.
