Netflix has confirmed the production of season two of its hit series D.P.
Earlier on the 3rd, the New York Times had listed D.P. on its “Best International Shows of 2021” chart. And today, Netflix confirmed the production of season two. D.P. tells the story of a soldier who has been conscripted into a special squad sent out to chase down deserters from the military.
Based on the webtoon “D.P Dog Day,” written and drawn by Kim Bo Tong, Coin Locker Girl director Han Joon Hee helmed the series. The story of the deserters and the soldiers chasing after them, which no one paid attention to, was completed with a delicate yet sharp gaze, garnering rave reviews both at home and abroad.
Season one ended as Jun Ho started walking in a different direction from his troops after an incident that scarred everyone. Even after the ending credits appeared, the sound of running footsteps continued for a while, raising curiosity.
Earlier this month, D.P. achieved a feat when it became the only Korean series to be named in NYT’s “Best International Shows of 2021.” Additionally, Ready Steady Cut described the show as “the finest K-Drama mini-series this year.” Also, NME gave the series a 3/5 rating, praising the “uniformly excellent performances, splendid cinematography, addictive pacing, and intrepid commitment to shedding light on the appalling culture of bullying in the military.”
Director Han Joon Hee and writer Kim Do Tong will join hands once again for season two. Moreover, Climax Studio, which produced D.P. season 1 and Hellbound, will continue to present the second season as well.
