The Chair is a comedy-drama series from the United States that came out on Netflix on August 20, 2021. The audience had mixed feelings about the show, which starred Sandra Oh, who won a Golden Globe, and Jay Duplass, who won an Emmy. The fact that the show was based on real events did manage to impress some viewers.
Fans also wanted more because Sandra Oh gave a great performance and her character was easy to relate to. So, we tried to find out if there will be a second season of The Chair. First, though, let’s look at what the show was about.
The Chair Season 2 Release Date
As of February 2022, six months after the show’s debut in August 2021, there had been no news about what would happen to it.
Most of the time, Netflix waits about a month before deciding what to do with a new show. How the audience responds and how many people watch is a big part of how they decide.
FlixPatrol, a site that collects statistics, says that The Chair didn’t stay in the site’s Top 10 for very long. After about 10 days, it fell out of the site’s Top 10 around the world (though it did surprisingly well in Russia with a 19-day streak… the more you know.)
The fact that big games like Clickbait, Memories of a Murderer: The Nilsen Tapes, and The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf also came out around the same time didn’t help either. So, if we’re being honest, the future doesn’t look too good. But it’s not done yet!
A second season of The Chair has always been possible. This isn’t listed as a limited run, so there was always a chance that it might happen. We’ll let you know for sure one way or another as soon as we know something.

What Will Happen in Season 2 of the Chair?
At the end of season one, Ji-Yoon was no longer the head of the English department at Pembroke after her colleagues staged a coup against her. Elliot volunteered to be in charge, but Oh’s character said, “F**k no,” so Joan was left in charge. This means she can finally work in an office instead of the basement of the campus gym.
Ji-Yoon can spend more time with her daughter Ju Ju now that she has a few things off her plate. Their relationship is rocky, and we expect that to continue in the next chapter as Ju Ju tries to figure out who she is and where she fits in the world.
Bill, on the other hand, turned down the settlement offer from the college and is now fighting to get his job back. In the meantime, he is going to babysit for Ji-Yoon.
At the end of The Chair’s first outing, the two were back on good terms, but they haven’t fully accepted their romantic connection yet. Bill’s grief over the death of his wife hasn’t gone away, but his feelings for Ji-Yoon aren’t just friendly.
Will she finally give up in season two and follow her heart instead of her head?
