The South Korean equivalent of Twilight Saga was an instant hit among fans when its first episode debuted in May. The drama aired from May till June, with 2 episodes releasing every week. But now that the final episode has been released, fans are left confused about the show’s sequel. Will, the writers continue telling Gumiho’s story in My Roommate Is a Gumiho Season 2?
The show is about a “nine-tailed fox” who is almost 999 years old. But in human form, the gumiho is a handsome young boy. Based on myths and folktales, the show’s plot explores the life of a Gumiho, a creature that originates from South Korea.
Almost every child has listened to these folktales while growing up. Then why was the show such a hit? The answer lies in the amazing plot written by Baek Sun-Woo and Choi Bo-Rim.
But what will be the fate of this show? Will, the producers, pick up the series for a second season, or will it get abandoned? Let’s find it out.

My Roommate Is a Gumiho Season 2 Release Date
Up till now, TVN has not greenlit the show, so there is no official release date for the sequel either. But the producers noticed a spike in rating and viewership when the last episode of the series went on air.
The show has amassed a strong fanbase, and if the showrunners don’t continue with the story, they’ll miss out on a potential hit K-drama. Keeping the hype in mind, we expect that the producers will soon confirm the second season in the upcoming weeks.
And if this happens, then expect the show to come out in late 2022 or even 2023. The present season had 16 episodes, each lasting for around an hour. If the writers go on with the idea of a sequel, then the same number of episodes will feature in the second installment.
Will the original cast return for My Roommate, Is a Gumiho Season 2?
The unusual love story featured Jang Ki Yong and Hyeri in the lead. Their electrifying chemistry is one of the reasons behind the exceptional success of the show.
But will they return for the sequel? Yes, they will because without them, the story won’t continue, and even if it does, then the fandom won’t be content with the decision.
Depending on the story development, there might be some additions to the cast, but we’ll only find that out once the production team confirms it. And as the second season isn’t officially announced, we can’t say anything definite about it.
However, expect Jang Ki Yong to come back as Shin Woo-yeo, whose only goal is to transform into a human. Hyeri is Lee Dam, a hard-working university student who has never been in a relationship before.
Other potential cast members include; Bae In-hyuk as Gye Sun-woo, Kang Han-na as Yang Hye-Su, and Kim Do-wan as Do Jae-jin.
We’ll get to know more once we get official details about the casting of the second season.
What will the plot of the second season of My Roommate is a Gumiho explore?
Based on an original webtoon, the 16 episodes long season covered pretty much everything in it.
The unique storyline is something that you’ll not find in other K-dramas. It’s not a usual love story. Instead, it shows a Gumiho who falls in love with a woman who happens to be a human.
Shin is a creature who wants to be a human, and his wishes finally come true when Lee Dam strips him off of all his fox beads. Well, good for him! But the problem was that, accidentally, Lee swallows one of the beads, which means that in one year, the bead will disintegrate inside of her, and she’ll have to die. The duo moves in together so that they can sort the matter out. And while they try to solve the problem, they will fall in love with each other!
Moreover, the show’s ending did not hint at another season. Shin has rebirth in the finale, and in the second life, he reunites with Lee. So they got a happy ending, and now there is not much story left to explore.
But noticing the hype of the show, TVN might renew the series for a second season. But the story will slightly differ from the first season.
