Sweet Home Season 2 Release Date

In a previous announcement from Netflix, the global streaming platform revealed that they would release seasons 2 and 3 of the popular Korean series Sweet Home. However, there is still no specific news confirming a release date.

Since Netflix has also only recently confirmed the news that Sweet Home will be renewed for two additional seasons, an official release date for Season 2 is not likely to be announced anytime soon.

The Kdrama is also not included in the latest list of movies and TV shows coming in September 2022, which means that the new season will not be released until next year or later.
