Release Date, Will The Show Return For Another Season?
As much as the fans want another season, it is quite hard to say if the show will return. Moreover, it is believed that the show won’t be renewed for another season.

Viewers and fans have seen everything in the first season; meaning, the viewers have seen the start and have also experience the conclusion of the storyline. All the issues in the show were solved by the end, which means there is no storyline to continue with.
In the end, the characters pay homage to the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, even though they have been canceled. Furthermore, if you look at the title clearly, you will understand the significance of it. The title clearly talks about the events happening in the year 2020. So, it’s relevant that the show is set to release and end in 2020 only.
Although the show recieved quite impressive reviews, a renewal and a second season are quite impossible. However, anything can happen, as things are uncertain. So, until then we will keep you updated if things change.
