Netflix has been adding a great number of shows to its list nowadays with K-dramas being at the top of it. Most of these series so released by the platform have lived up to their hype and Hospital Playlist has surely become one of the favorite names among them. The 2020 release has scored a high 8.7/10 rating on IMDb and has been confirmed for another season, which did not come off as shocking news. Hospital Playlist Season 2 is already on our “To Watch” list and we are severely pining for it.
The South Korean drama series was written by Lee Woo-Jung and received directions from Shin Won-ho. The show has even received four awards in different categories at the 2020 Brand of the Year awards. The production of the second season is set to begin towards the end of this year.

Hospital Playlist Season Announcement & Release Date
To say that the show has been a great success is still a big understatement. And that pretty much sums up how well the series has been received by the audience while garnering a starry sum of ratings. It would’ve been a huge disappointment if the show hadn’t been renewed and tvN has in fact answered all our prayers by confirming a second season in the future. Rumors surrounding the comeback of the show claim that Season 2 will be aired in 2021. Even though the date hasn’t been laid down by the network, we are still more than happy to hear this news and can’t wait to get our hands on the sequel. The first season ran from 12 March to 28 May 2020 for 12 episodes.
In his interview with OSEN, Jo Jung-suk has even expressed the desire to map out the series through several seasons since we have 5 protagonists to deal with. Ultimately, it all depends on how the second season will be received. If the upcoming season shares the surging success of the first one, then it won’t take long for subsequent seasons to get a green signal as well. We have our fingers crossed.
I wanna cry because ShinLee treated them all equally. Main role, supporting role or cameo's. No matter how small or big their roles are.The all have one goal & it's to deliver a heart warming drama.

The lives of doctors and nurses aren’t set on easy paths and it isn’t every day that we get to witness them face to face with a tinge of raw vulnerability. Hospital Playlist does exactly that by portraying the story of 5 doctors who’ve been together on this journey since their medical school days while hitting us with nostalgia.
The second season will dive deeper into the friendships built over the years, while also dealing with romantic confessions and where they are headed in the future.
Season 1 of Hospital Playlist is now streaming on Netflix.
