The addition of Love Alarm marks yet another excellent K-Drama to the Netflix bedpost. After a fantastic first season and a killer cliff hanger, subscribers are already demanding when we can expect to see the next season of Love Alarm. We’ve known for a while the series has been renewed, and we were previously under the impression that it would return in August 2020. Sadly, this isn’t the case and Love Alarm has been delayed until 2021.
Love Alarm is a Netflix original romantic comedy series based on the webtoon of the same name by author Chon Kye-Young. The series is the fourth full Korean Original series by Netflix but Love Alarm was, in fact, the first to be ordered.
In an increasingly digitalized age so too do our love lives. When an unknown developer releases a dating app it goes viral in South Korea. The app will tell the user if someone within 10 feet of them has romantic feelings for them, this greatly disrupts day to day life for Jojo. Soon Jojo finds her caught in a love triangle between Lee Hye-yeong and his best friend Hwang Sun-oh the handsome model.
Love Alarm Season 2 Netflix Release Date
Many K-Drama fans will be incredibly disappointed to learn that the release date for Love Alarm season 2 has been delayed.
We previously had confirmation that the second season of Love Alarm was coming to Netflix on August 22nd, 2020. But we’ve recently learned that the release date has been pushed back to 2021. The reason for the delay has been pinned on the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Love Alarm Season 2 Netflix Renewal Status
Official Netflix Renewal Status: Renewed (Last Updated: 06/11/2019)
We can finally confirm that Love Alarm will return for a second season! Netflix announced the news on various social media outlets and a video with the cast members announcing the news was uploaded to The Swoon.
Does the story warrant another season?
Certainly. By the seasons’ end, the Love Alarm application received an update for its 2.0 launch. Going beyond knowing if someone has romantic feelings for someone, the application can now tell if a person within 10 meters loves them.
Just as the update goes live, Jojo discovered that not only does Lee Hye-Yeong love her but so does Hwang Sun-oh. This was confirmed by the Love Alarm app when both of the boys are within the required radius to trigger the app.
Jojo is now left with a choice, does she return the feelings of Lee Hye-Yeong or does she choose to be with the handsome model Hwang Sun-oh?
