My Name season 2 release date updates: Will there be a new season?

Many people are watching My Name, and it comes as no surprise because this Netflix original takes you on a thrill ride with its many action-packed scenes. However, for the people who binge-watched the first season in one sitting, their thrill ride has unfortunately come to an end, and they’re looking for more. So, will there be a My Name season 2?

Netflix has consistently been adding new Korean content to their platform, and subscribers are enjoying everything dropped. Now with Squid Game‘s success, it seems that there’s an even bigger spotlight on Korean content. And it looks like My Name hasn’t fallen short.

My Name is a South Korean crime thriller series about a woman who teams up with a powerful crime boss to avenge her father’s death.

The popular series stars Nevertheless‘s Han So-hee, Park Hee-soon, Ahn Bo-Hyun, Kim Sang-ho, Lee Hak-Joo, Chang Ryul, and Yoon Kyung-ho.

The TV show is currently sitting, as of Oct. 18, at the No. 6 spot on the top 10 list, so people are definitely viewing this thrilling show and enjoying it enough to keep coming back for more. Now keep reading because we’re about to share with you everything we know about a potential season 2.

How many seasons of My Name are there?

There is only one season of this thriller series, but we’re hoping for more. The first season consists of eight episodes that have runtimes ranging from 45-58 minutes.

Will there be a My Name season 2?

At the time of writing, Netflix has not renewed the Korean drama for a second season. However, there is definitely enough demand for a second season by fans.

If we had to give our guess on if there will be a season 2, we’d say that it’s highly unlikely. Without spoiling anything, the first season is wrapped up pretty neatly. So, a continuation of the story seems unnecessary.

However, with the show’s popularity, there’s still a possibility for Netflix to renew the series. And with the brilliant writing from the first season, we can expect the same in a potential second season.

My Name season 2 episode count

If there were to be a second season, we expect it to consist of eight episodes like the first season. The writers were able to tell a complete story with eight episodes in the first season, so we think that the same amount of episodes for a second season would be enough.

When is My Name season 2 filming?

Since My Name hasn’t been renewed for a second season as of yet, filming will not start anytime soon. However, if the series gets renewed, we think filming could begin by the end of 2021 or early 2022. If My Name gets renewed for a second season, we’ll be sure to let you know when filming starts.

My Name season 2 release date

We can’t give you the official season 2 release date because the Korean series hasn’t been renewed yet. However, our best prediction is that season 2 will be released on Netflix in fall 2022.

Netflix typically releases new seasons of its originals a year apart, and seeing as though season 1 premiered in fall 2021, a fall 2022 season 2 release date seems probable. So be sure to stay tuned for more information on My Name season 2! But for now, stream My Name on Netflix.
