When is Physical: 100 Season 2 coming to Netflix?
Netflix has yet to announce a release date for the second season of Physical: 100. However, we would expect to see the series return to the streaming service sometime in the first half of 2024.
What about the controversial ending of season 1?
It has never been confirmed by the production team, however, reports began to circulate from Physical:100 contestant and finalist Jung Hae-min, that his last game against Woo Jin-yong had been filmed twice.
Jung Hae-min claims that the first game was halted after complaints about the equipment from Woo Jin-yong resulted in the production team having to oil the machines. He further claims that in the second attempt to record the final game, when he came close to winning, production was halted and the game was moved to a separate location after an issue with audio recording.
Hopefully, a second season will result in no controversies.
