This Korean drama has been a favorite of many K-drama lovers and ever since it ended, fans from all over the world have been keeping a keen eye for any updates regarding a second season. However, it’s unclear if the drama will return but it’s not like it won’t happen given the popularity of the show.

Mr. Queen Season2: Release Date
Mr. Queen season 1 went on air from December 12, 2020, to February 14, 2021. The series has become the 7th highest-rated drama in Korean cable television history. Rumors have been doing rounds in the market about the expected release of season 2. However, no official confirmation has yet been given regarding season 2. It is unclear at the moment where the series would be making a return or not. However, like other K-dramas, expectations are that it would be renewed with a season 2 and would likely return sometime in 2023.
With an impressive watch report and 8.8 ratings on IMDB, it proves the need for another season. The fans have to wait till an official confirmation is made regarding the same.
The show follows the storyline of the modern age where Jang Bond hwan is a chef working for its top politicians at Blue house. He has a free spirit. One day he finds himself trapped in the body of Queen Cheorin in the Joseon period. King Cheoljong, the reigning monarch, is a gentle and easy-going person. But he is a king just in name. Queen Sunwon, the late King Sunjo’s wife, wields real power in the country. She has relegated King Cheoljong to a figurehead. Her ambitious younger brother Kim Jwa Geun also desires power.

We’ll update this post over time if we get any updated regarding season 2 of Mr. Queen.
Season 2 of Mr. Queen may not happen
It’s highly likely that a second of the massively popular Korean drama series “Mr. Queen” will not happen since it was a one-season thing-only drama. When the first season was released, fans from around the world showed immense love and have since been demanding a second season but it is quite doubtful that the makers will produce another season. Nonetheless, we’re still yet to receive an official announcement.
As per Wikipedia, if you check the release section it’s clearly mentioned the air dates of the first episode and last episode. So it is highly unlikely that the series would not be back for a season two. Moreover, it’s been more than two years since the first season came out, and at this point, it looks like the series was only meant for a single season only. (updated 7/4/2023)
