Netflix always has great South Korean content, but its newest Original drama, D.P., is one of the best. It might be one of the best-selling albums since Love Alarm and Kingdom. Fans were already happy when they heard D.P. has been picked up for a second season, they will be even happier to hear that the second season has just finished filming. We’ll keep track of all the information you need to know about D.P. year two.
D.P. is a South Korean crime-drama show on Netflix that was made by Han Jun Hee and is based on the webcomic D.P. Dog Day by Kim Bo Tong. Kim Bo Tong helped write the screenplay for the series, which is one reason why it has been so well received.
What is D.P. Season 2’s Netflix Renewal Status?
After a few months of waiting, Netflix Korea announced on Twitter that D.P. will be back for a second season.

Outside of Europe and North America, D.P. did very well on Netflix. It spent several weeks in the top ten in many Asian countries. Most notably, the series was in South Korea’s top ten for 8 weeks, or 52 days.
The show has also done very well with critics and viewers, getting respectable 8.8 and 8.8 ratings on IMDb and MyDramaList, respectively.

Even though the show isn’t doing very well outside of Asia, it’s great to see Netflix invest in South Korean content.
When Can We Expect D.P. To Have a Release Date for a Second Season?
It was recently said that filming for the second season of D.P. is done. Since filming will end in November 2022, it’s very unlikely that the k-drama will come back to Netflix before the end of the year. The most likely time for season 2 of D.P. to come out is in the spring of 2023.
What Will the Story in ‘D.P. Season 2’ Be?
The first season of D.P. had six episodes, and the last one was like a volcano erupting. Everything that the show has been talking about since the beginning—the abuse of power by seniors, the abuse of hierarchical structures, the political connections, the graphic stories, and the emotional backstories—reached its peak in the last two episodes.
In the end, Joon Ho didn’t agree with what his unit commander said. As the rest of the group moves in one direction, the D.P. member moves in the opposite direction and starts to walk away. Joon Ho has over 500 days left of his military service, so there aren’t many places he can go.
The broken relationship he had with his mother was also a big theme of the first season. So going home is also not an option. But the second season of D.P. might show why Joon Ho has trouble getting along with her.
Then there’s Ho Hyeol, who repeatedly disobeyed his immediate superior, Sergeant First Class Park Bum Gu (Kim Sung Kyun), in front of all the juniors. After being in the hospital, veteran D.P. member Ho Hyeol did get a second chance, but in some episodes, Ho Hyeol’s D.P. position could be taken away with a power play.
He could be “punished” by making him an ordinary soldier or putting him in the military police. This would mean that he couldn’t leave the barracks (one thing Ho Hyeol loves the most.)
The bromance between Hoon Jo and Ho Hyeol is definitely something that will be kept in the next season.
