Character Cha Hyun-su in Sweet Home Season 3

After a prolonged wait, Song Kang returns in the role of Cha Hyun-soo for the much-anticipated Sweet Home Season 2. In the aftermath of the initial season’s events, time has passed, and the chaos that initially engulfed the tenant building has now escalated into a global catastrophe.

The first season of the K-drama focused on Hyun-soo after losing his family and having moved to a new building. Overnight, the world descends into madness as people become ruthless monsters based on their inner desires. While the tenants try to survive, Hyun-soo battles his own demons. He possesses all of their powers but retains his humanity.

Sweet Home became one of Netflix‘s biggest hits venturing into the K-content and Hallyu wave. In 2022, Netflix announced the jaw-dropping news that Sweet Home was not only greenlighted for Season 2 but also a Season 3.

Fans have been eagerly awaiting a release date, with Netflix promising it would premiere in the fourth quarter of 2023. Here’s everything we know about the K-drama’s release date, cast, and plot.

Sweet Home Season 2: What’s the K-drama about?

Netflix officially released the plot breakdown for Sweet Home Season 2 teasing what’s in store for fans.

Netflix released a plot summary that reads, “The main characters depart from the Green Home, the site of their previous monster battles, and are compelled to venture into the outside world. Survivors have gathered at what is left of the stadium and built a community, but they still cannot let their guard down. The evolving storyline promises heightened anticipation as the characters confront new dangers in different environments, where they have to fight against both external monsters and their own monstrous desires.”

During the finale of the first season, Hyun-soo was up against the K-drama antagonist Jung Ui-myeong (Kim Sung-cheol). He proved to have the same abilities as Hyun-soo. As the tenants have to escape the building for their only chance at survival, they have an epic battle that leads to Ui-myeong’s supposed death.

The K-drama ended with the government arriving, taking the tenants, and circling Hyun-soo. But Sweet Home ended on a cliffhanger when Ui-myeong was revealed to have used his powers to become Pyeon Sang-Wook (Lee Jin-uk). He had hijacked the military vehicle carrying Hyun-soo. Fabs of the original webtoon would know the cliffhanger ends a bit differently.

The first official teaser for Sweet Home Season 2 revealed Hyun-soo alive and taken to a secret government facility. An ominous voice wonders if he will be the one to save them all. Hyun-soo vows to do anything it takes before being doused in blood. Meanwhile, scenes show the remaining characters trying to survive as the world descends further into chaos.
