Resident Playbook Netflix K Drama

It’s been three years since Hospital Playlist ended. Fans of the K-drama are still sad that it isn’t returning. However, there’s good news: a spin-off titled Resident Playbook is on the way and could be coming to Netflix by July 2024.

Resident Playbook is an upcoming internationally licensed South Korean Netflix Original medical drama series and spin-off of the beloved K-drama Hospital Playlist. The series is directed by Lee Min Soo (Heartbeat) and written by screenwriter Kim Song Hee (Reply 1998, Hospital Playlist).

When is the release date for Resident Playbook on Netflix?

At the time of writing, there isn’t an official Netflix release date for Resident Playbook.

However, we have seen two conflicting potential release schedules. Netflix has reported that Resident Playbook will be released sometime in Q2 (April-June) 2024. The other is a rumored release schedule for all upcoming K-dramas listing Resident Playbook as due for release on the South Korean cable network tvN on July 27th, 2024.
