The first season of The School Nurse Files has only just been released, but what are the chances that the K-drama will return to Netflix for season 2?
From Kingdom to Itaewon Class, there are some fantastic K-dramas available to watch on Netflix. That being said, The School Nurse Files has got to be one of the most unique series on the entire platform.
Confusing, creative, strange and compelling are some of the terms that come to mind, but the series has captured the imagination of millions of people around the world.
The first season of The School Nurse Files only released on September 25th, but fans are wondering if and when the series will return to Netflix for season 2.
Will there be a season 2 of The School Nurse Files?
- At the time of writing, The School Nurse Files has not been renewed by Netflix for a second season.
Unfortunately, we don’t have any information to either confirm or deny that the K-drama will return for a second season and it’s it remains unclear as to what the future holds for The School Nurse Files.
On one hand, the first season has somewhat of an open ending, with Safe Happiness still posing a threat to the school and Eun-young about to go to Radi’s house to confront some jellies that her mother thinks are ghosts.
Whilst we may not have the official figures for how many people watched The School Nurse Files, the series also appears to be incredibly popular with fans – both of which indicate that a second season could be on the cards.
However, as the series is an adaption of the 2015 novel by Chung Serang and the first season covered everything from that novel, the story is technically over for our favourite school nurse. Plus, the vast majority of Korean dramas are intended to only be a one-season series, no matter how popular they may become.
The success of the Netflix adaptation may tempt Serang to write a sequel to her 2015 novel, in which case a second season would likely be produced, but there is always the possibility that season 2 could be an original storyline.
Hopefully, we get an official announcement regarding The School Nurse Files in the coming weeks.
The School Nurse Files season 2 release date…
Assuming that The School Nurse Files will be renewed for a second season, the biggest factor that will affect production will be the storyline and/or producing an original script. As previously explained, the series is an adaptation of a 2015 novel and season 1 covered everything from that book.
So, production will have to wait on the publishing of a sequel, which has not yet been confirmed, or wait on the writing of an original storyline – either way, it will likely take a long time to produce a second season.
Thankfully, the series only had a six-episode first season, so production on a second instalment may not be as long as other Korean dramas but again, this all depends on the series being renewed in the first place.
An optimistic prediction for a potential release date for The School Nurse Files season 2 would be summer 2021, but a more realistic expectation would be winter 2021. We will update this article as soon as more information on the future of The School Nurse Files is officially announced, so keep checking in.
