‘Narco-Saints’ Season 2: Netflix Renewal Status and What to Expect



‘Narco-Saints’ Season 2: Netflix Renewal Status and What to Expect

Narco-Saints is another successful k-drama to add to Netflix’s expanding library of Korean content. But has the k-drama been renewed for a second season? Not yet, and unless there are plans to take the story beyond its real-life inspiration, renewal is increasingly unlikely.

With another successful k-drama in its filmography, Netflix continues to impress with its output of Korean content.

Narco-Saints is a South Korean crime-thriller series written and directed by Yoon Jong Bin, starring Squid Game actor Park Hea Soo. Despite ‘Narco’ being present in the title, the series has no association with the beloved Netflix franchise Narcos.

For the majority of the k-drama’s production, it was titled The Accidental Narco before eventually switching to Narco-Saints.

Based on true events, Narco-Saints takes place in South America, where a drug lord operating in the country has grabbed the attention of the National Intelligence Service. The intelligence service enlists the help of an ordinary entrepreneur who set his sights on making his fortune in Suriname, only to fall knee-deep into the world of drug crime.

Narco Saints Season 2 Netflix Renewal Status

Official Netflix Renewal Status: Pending (Last Updated: 21/09/2022)

At the time of writing Netflix has not made a decision on the future of Narco Saints. We expect this will take several weeks as Netflix monitors the performance of the series.

There are many factors that are involved in Netflix making the decision to renew a series. Some of the factors Netflix will consider are;

  • Total hours viewed (millions)
  • Time spent in the global top ten (days/weeks)
  • Cost of a second season

Currently, the series is performing extremely well and in its second week achieved a total of 62,650,000 million hours viewed, a 204% increase on its debut week. The series helped to dethrone the massively popular k-drama series Extraordinary Attorney Woo.

Given the current projection of the series, we’re hopeful of renewal. However, over the next several weeks we’ll continue to report on the performance of the series, and whether or not the viewing statistics will line up with its potential renewal.

Does Narco-Saints need a second season?

Whether or not Narco-Saints needs a second season is completely subjective. There will be many subscribers who watched the series and will be satisfied by the ending, and there will also be plenty of subscribers who would love to see much more.

As far as the story goes, everything was wrapped up neatly for a satisfying ending. After helping the NIS and the DEA take down the drug lord Yo-hwan, Kang was finally able to return home.

After a six-month time skip, Kang was back to work as a mechanic in his shop, where agent Chang-Oh offered two karaoke bars as payment for his work, but Kang turns the payment down.

With his work with the NIS finished, Kang wishes to discuss with his family his involvement in the capture of drug lord Yo-hwan, however, Chang-oh makes Kang aware that the NIS will never publicly acknowledge his involvement in the operation.

For the story to continue, Kang would need to continue his involvement with the NIS, and officially be hired as an undercover agent to infiltrate more drug rings or other criminal organizations. Without being hired by the NIS, it’s extremely hard to see where the story could go.

Alternatively, the series could be approached like an anthology, with the one consistent factor in each season being Chang Ho, played by Squid Game and Money Heist: Korea actor Park Hae Soo. Each season could see a different operation in a different part of the globe, with a brand new cast of characters and story.

List Of Canceled Netflix Original Series In 2023

List of all the shows Netflix has canceled in 2023.



2023 has kicked off with a couple of big cancelations, which signals a potentially rough year coming up, which many other players throughout Hollywood will share. Here’s a look at the 2023 cancelations!


The big-budget series from the creators of DARK had big expectations and big shoes to fill.

The mystery sci-fi show was one of Netflix’s most ambitious shows in years, using state-of-the-art technology and featuring an impressive ensemble cast.

Why was 1899 canceled?

Data provided to What’s on Netflix from European SVOD analytics company Digital i suggests that the completion rate was ultimately too low and likely wasn’t growing substantially. Their data suggests only around a third of people who started the show went onto finish the title.

Inside Job

The animated series Inside Job had been initially given a season 2 renewal order back in June 2022. Still, in January 2023, the creator confirmed rumors that Netflix had reversed the decision to renew.

In a statement on Twitter, the show’s creator Shion Takeuchi said:

I’m heartbroken to confirm that Netflix has decided to cancel season 2 of Inside Job. Over the years, these characters have become real people to me, and I am devastated not to be able to watch them grow up. Reagan and Brett deserved to get their ending and finally find happiness. And I would have loved to been able to share what was in store with you all.

He added, “To everyone who watched, thank you for coming along on the ride. Even though I’m sad, it helps to know that there’s people out there who cared just as much about these characters as me.”

Netflix Movie Lou Cast: Who Stars in the Netflix Thriller?



Netflix Movie Lou Cast: Who Stars in the Netflix Thriller?

Allison Janney and Jurnee Smollett are the main attraction of the Netflix movie Lou as the two leading ladies. Janney plays a John Wick-esque character (complete with a beloved dog, but don’t worry, Jax makes it out alive!) while Smollett plays her neighbor, Hannah.

Lou is a hardened recluse living on the fringes of their secluded island, while Hannah is a single mother struggling to make ends meet to take care of her daughter, Vee.

A horrible storm hits the island, and someone kidnaps Hannah’s daughter in the midst of it, forcing her to turn to Lou for help. While searching for Vee, the two women are forced to confront some of the dark secrets from their past.

Even though Smollett and Janney are the stars, Lou has a great cast of actors that also includes Logan Marshall-Green and Greyston Holt (remember him as one of the hot werewolves from Bitten?).

Netflix movie Lou cast list

For those unfamiliar with Allison Janney, the powerhouse actress is a Hollywood staple. Throughout her many decades in the business, Janney has won countless accolades, including seven Primetime Emmy Awards, an Academy Award, and a Golden Globe Award. She has also secured two Tony nominations.

Janney first rose to prominence playing C.J. Cregg on The West Wing. More recently, she starred as Bonnie Plunkett for nine seasons in the CBS sitcom Mom. Janney won her Oscar for I, Tonya, and has also appeared in projects like Masters of Sex, The Help, Juno, and many others. Next, she’ll star in the comedy miniseries Mrs. American Pie, the comedy film The People We Hate at the Wedding, and the sci-fi drama True Love.

Jurnee Smollett has been acting since she was a kid, with recurring roles in shows like Full House and On Our Own. But most people probably know her as Jess Merriweather in Friday Night Lights. The last few years have really helped cement Smollet’s status as a superstar. She played Dinah Lance/Black Canary in Birds of Prey and is reportedly going to reprise her role in a spinoff standalone movie at HBO Max.

Smollett also delivered an incredible performance in the short-lived but acclaimed HBO series Lovecraft Country and she recently starred opposite Miles Teller and Chris Hemsworth in the Netflix thriller Spiderhead. Next, she’ll star in the courtroom drama film The Burial with Jamie Foxx and Tommy Lee Jones.

Completing the cast trifecta is Logan Marshall-Green, who plays the film’s primary antagonist, Philip. You might recall Marshall-Green playing Trey Atwood in The O.C. He also recently completed a stint on the ABC series Big Sky.

Here’s the complete cast list for the Netflix movie:

  • Allison Janney as Lou
  • Jurnee Smollett as Hannah
  • Logan Marshall-Green as Philip
  • Ridley Asha Bateman as Vee
  • Matt Craven as Sheriff Rankin
  • Greyston Holt as Chris
  • Daniel Bernhardt as Tony
  • RJ Fetherstonhaugh as Gerry
  • Andres Collantes as Deputy Torres
  • Marci T. House as Agent Lee
  • Toby Levins as Agent Hampton

Netflix movie Lou starts streaming on Friday, September 23.
