Extraordinary Attorney Woo Season 2 Netflix Renewal Status
Official Netflix Renewal Status: Renewed (Last Updated: 23/08/2022)
Fans of the internet’s most popular K-Drama this summer will be incredibly happy to learn that Extraordinary Attorney Woo has been renewed for a second season.
Lee Sang Baek, the CEO of ASTORY had the following to say about season 2;
Thanks to the support of many people, we will produce Season 2 of ‘Extraordinary Attorney Woo.’ The goal is to air Season 2 in 2024.
Given the overwhelming popularity of the series, it should come as no surprise that a second season is happening. In South Korea, the finale saw its biggest audience share of the entire season, amassing a nationwide rating of 17.534%. Extraordinary Attorney Woo now sits in 7th place as South Korea’s highest-rated cable television drama of all time. When you take into consideration the first episode received less than 1% of the nationwide ratings, its meteoric rise is that much more impressive.
At the time of publishing, we are missing the data from Netflix for the total number of hours viewed from August 15th to August 22nd. As these dates include the final two episodes of the season the total number of hours viewed will greatly exceed the current 326,600,000 million.
