Hellbound Season 2 Netflix Renewal Status
Netflix Official Renewal Status: Pending (Last Updated: 25/11/2021)
We are currently waiting for Netflix to decide on the future of Hellbound, but since the k-drama has only been available to stream for a little under a week, it’s easy to see why it hasn’t been refreshed yet.
Fortunately, we are already seeing early signs that Hellbound could get a second season thanks to the new way Netflix releases ratings. From November 15 to November 21, 43.48 million hours were watched by subscribers around the world, pushing the drama to the top of the global non-English TV chart.
Not only has Hellbound performed well with hours of viewing pleasure, the series also made the top ten lists of 90 different countries. Many of the countries have seen Hellbound reach the number one spot, and many others have seen it in the top 3.
With how popular? Hellbound has become, we can expect news about renewal within a few weeks.
What to expect from Season 2 of Hellbound?
In the closing moments of the first season, a shocking revelation took place that will change the world forever when the ashes and remains of Park Jung Ja came together and brought the woman to life.
The New Truth doctrine was torn to shreds after multiple eyewitnesses witnessed what happened between Song So Hyun’s baby, who lived despite a decree after his parents sacrificed themselves to save their newborn son.
In fact, questions will be raised about the New Truth as the victims of decrees like Park Jung Ja begin to rise again. However, if this means seeing the resurrection of former New Truth chairman Jung Jin Soo, would he use his resurrection to spread a new gospel?
With the New Truth and Arrowhead convincing the masses that all those given decrees are sinners, with sinners rising from hell itself, society is likely to collapse completely as the world tries to understand “God’s” actions.
When can we expect to see? Hellbound season 2 on Netflix?
A release date for Hellbound Season 2 relies heavily on when the series is renewed. We can use the production of the first season to give you a good idea when we can see Hellbound season 2 on Netflix.
Filming for Hellbound started on September 17, 2020 and ended on January 18, 2021. So there was just over fourteen months between the start of filming and the Netflix release date. This means that if we use fourteen months as a rough estimate, we don’t see it Hellbound season 2 on Netflix until 2023 at the earliest.
If an extension takes place and filming begins in Spring 2022, we could see a late summer 2023 release date.
