Renewed Or Cancelled?
Cafe Minamdang is the latest mystery drama on Netflix, bringing together an eclectic group of characters and an interesting plot. With a longer run-time than usual, this one’s been quite the rollercoaster ride over the weeks.
If you’ve been following this one, you may be wondering if this has been renewed or cancelled.
What is Cafe Minamdang Season 1 about?
The story here centers on Nam Han Joon, a former criminal profiler who’s now working as a fraudster. For his scams, he disguises himself as a fortune teller, running the shop Minamdang. He not only scams customers for their money though, he also gets involved in their cases and helps solve them.
Nam Han Joon’s partners are Soo Cheol and Nam Hye Joon. While Hey Joon is a master hacker, Sool-Cheol runs a private detective agency. As fate would have it, all these characters interweave together.

Has Cafe Minamdang been renewed for season 2?
At the time of writing, KBS2 have not renewed Cafe Minamdang for season 2. Given the ratings over the weeks, it’ll be interesting to see if they actually do renew this for a follow-up.
The ratings began with a pretty decent 5.7% share nationwide but since then, the show has been steady at around 4% most weeks.
Despite the ratings and longer run of 18 rather than 16 episodes, we predict that Cafe Minamdang will not be renewed for a second season.
We’ll be sure to update this section with more details as they become available.
What we know about season 2 so far:
Barely anything is known about season 2 right now. Given most Korean dramas are reserved to one season, it’s rare to find these renewed. With the rare exception of ongoing Netflix shows (Love ft. Marriage and Divorce, Hospital Playlist etc.) then it seems unlikely that this one will be renewed.
Having said that though, we have seen Taxi Driver and Tale of the Nine Tailed renewed recently. Given how steady the ratings are for this series, could we see this one buck the trend? Right now it seems unlikely.
There is always the possibility that the actors return for a follow-up for a sequel or a spin-off featuring the same characters. But considering all of this, we believe this will not be renewed.
We generally aim to update this page when more information becomes available.
