Sweet Home Season 2 is a Netflix Original horror K-Drama series, based on the webtoon comic of the same name by Yongchan Hwang. The series is produced by Studio Dragon.
Sweet Home performed well across the globe on Netflix in the first month of its release by breaking into at least 32 different top t0 lists. In particular Sweet Home was able to reach number one on Netflix in South Korea,
Sweet Home is also scoring a solid 7.3/10 on IMDB, 83% on Rotten Tomatoes, and 8.7/10 on MyDramaList, showcasing just how popular the K-drama is worldwide.
Season 1 ended on a thrilling, if not slightly confusing note, but with fans looking ahead to the future, Netflix has just confirmed that not only is season 2 of Sweet Home on the way…but so is season 3 too!
Then, in March 2022, fresh rumors of production starting in South Korea began circulating online. There may not be a community quite like the K-drama community, which boasts eagle-eyed detective skills that could match any private investigator.
On March 8th, a number of images allegedly from the production set on Sweet Home season 2 were circulating on social media, reportedly coming from the Instagram page of lead actor Song Kang’s manager. The first image shows a blood-stained shoe with the caption “It has started”, with the second being of the script for episode 1 and the final image being supposedly from the set itself.
Sweet Home Season 2 Confirmed
Sweet Home got off to a rip-roaring and bloody start to life on Netflix. Despite this, it’s taken 18 months for Netflix to officially confirm that season 2 is now in production. Alongside the season 2 announcement, Netflix has also revealed that the third season of Sweet Home is also on the way.
In March 2022 we previously reported that several images on the Instagram page of Song Kang’s manager all but confirmed renewal. There was some debate about the legitimacy of the image, but that no longer matters as the series will be returning.
Speaking on the confirmation of Sweet Home’s future, the director said that “Season 2 will include a new setting, and the technical details that we couldn’t refine in Season 1 will be further honed in Season 2.”
Sweet Home Season 2 and 3 Release Date
Fans will be delighted to learn that Sweet Home has also been renewed for a third season. In the video description, it states that seasons 2 or 3 are now in production. This heavily suggests filming could be done back to back for both seasons, with a small break likely to take place in between.
Thankfully, this gives the production team more creative freedom to use the original source material when necessary but also provides the opportunity to speed up the filming process – which has already been hinted at starting in May 2022.
Sweet Home Season 2 Release Date
With production officially confirmed we can now begin to speculate when season 2 will be released on Netflix.
The filming for season 1 took eight months, lasting from June 2019 to February 2020. If we are to assume that production has only just begun in June 2022, then this means filming may not end until mid-2023. However, this also means that we could be waiting until December 2023 for the return of Sweet Home.
Sweet Home Season 2 Cast
The good news is that Kang’s schedule appears to be free for Sweet Home season 2, where he is expected to be joined by the following cast members:
- Song Kang as Cha Hyun-soo
- Lee Jin-wook as Pyeon Sang-wook
- Lee Si-young as Seo Yi-kyung

However, there will also be some new additions to the cast, with Netflix confirming that “Yoo Oh-seong, Oh Jung-se, Kim Moo-yeol and Jung Jin-young round up the ensemble.
Sweet Home Season 1 Ending Explained
Prior to the final moments of season 1, we last saw Sang-Wook dying in a pool of his own blood after attempting to help Yu Ri. The last twist of the season was Cha Hyun Soo awakening in the military van, being driven by a scarless Sang-Wook.
One of two things could have possibly happened to Sang Wook. Firstly, Sang Wook has either undergone his own metamorphosis or is currently in the Golden Hour before he transforms into a monster. Secondly, we last saw Myeong making an escape in a military van after being defeated by Cha Hyun Soo, and as his powers appear to be taking possession of other humans, he could have taken control of Sang Wook’s body.
In the moments before Green Homes collapsed, Eun Hyuk began to bleed the same way an infected would. Despite being buried under the rubble of the apartment block, if Eun Hyuk is going through his own metamorphosis, any regenerative abilities could save his life.
The trigger for Eun Hyuk turning could be his desire to keep his broken family together. Despite not being the biological brother of Eun Yoo, he still feels responsible for his sister’s welfare
Yi Kyung spent a large part of the first season trying to figure out what happened to her fiance, Nam Sang Won. Despite not upholding her end of the deal with the military, Yi Kyung has now joined them, and will likely be on the hunt for Cha Hyun Soo. If she can capture Cha Hyun Soo, she may finally learn of her fiance’s fate.
Sweet Home Season 2 Expected Plot
Sweet Home director Eung-bok has previously stated that he wants to be faithful to the original webtoon the series is based on. Despite Lee’s intentions, the first season of Sweet Home notably featured numerous changes that were not in the source material, including some new characters and a tweaked storyline.
