Netflix apocalyptic horror K-Drama series Sweet Home will return.

On June 15, the streamer officially renewed the series for two more seasons, which will be produced back-to-back. Season 1 director Lee Eung-bok is confirmed to return to helm both Seasons 2 and 3.

“In these new seasons, Sweet Home will take on a larger scale with an expanded storyline and cast,” Netflix said in a statement.

The first season of Sweet Home premiered on Netflix on December 18, 2020, and it became Netflix's first-ever original South Korean series to make it to the streamer's Top 10 list in the United States, peaking top 3. It later claimed the top spot in eight global regions and was within the Top 10 in 42 regions.

Sweet Home is based on the Naver WEBTOON of the same title by Kim Carnby and Hwang Young-cha.

You can check out everything we know about Sweet Home Season 2 below, including its release date, plot, cast, trailer, and more news about the series.

Note that we will update this article once Netflix releases more information about the K-drama's highly-anticipated seasons.

Since Netflix renewed Sweet Home for two more seasons in early 2022, don't expect an official release date for Season 2 anytime soon, but we will update you here on Epicstream.com once the streamer confirms a release date.

Netflix already shared its list of movies and TV shows coming in November 2022, and unfortunately, Sweet Home Season 2 is not included in the list, so it's likely that the new season won't be released until Q3 2023 or later.

It was also rumored that the show could be released on December 15, 2023. True enough, Netflix released a date announcement trailer for the new season, which will come out on December 1, 2023.

Did Netflix Release a Teaser or Trailer for the New Season?

Netflix just released the teaser for the next two seasons of Sweet Home, which you can watch below:

Of course, since the back-to-back production for Seasons 2 and 3 was just confirmed, don't expect a full trailer to arrive anytime soon.

“In these new seasons, Sweet Home will take on a larger scale with an expanded storyline and cast,” Netflix said in a statement.

A trailer for Sweet Home Season 2 was released by Netflix on Geeked Week. You can watch it here:

Sweet Home director Lee Eung-bok has previously stated that he wants the Netflix show to be faithful to the original webtoon the series is based on.

Despite the filmmaker's intentions, Season 1 of Sweet Home notably featured several changes that were not in the source material, including a tweaked storyline and some new characters.

During a press conference for Sweet Home, Lee revealed that he and his team had already finished Season 2's storyline.

“While we were writing, we completed the end of the storyline ourselves so there are a couple things that came out after we were done,” Lee said, as translated by Soompi. “If the opportunity arises, we want to also introduce the monsters that we weren’t able to.”

In Season 1, Cha Hyun-soo (Song Kang) and a group of neighbors gathered together to confront dangerous creatures bent on destroying civilization.

The protagonists of Sweet Home are forced to decide whether to team up together or work alone, which results in major character developments and plot twists across the ten episodes of the first season.

After barely escaping the Green Home, Hyun Soo was captured by the military, while Sang Wook (Lee Jin Wook) showed up with his burn scars having been healed.

Without going over major spoilers, Season 2 is expected to expand the conflict introduced in the first season.

“Season 2 will include a new setting,” said Lee during the announcement. “I believe the technical details we couldn’t refine in Season 1 will be honed in Season 2,” he added.
