Netflix has confirmed the release date of the highly anticipated second season of the South Korean crime-drama series "D.P." (Deserter Pursuit).

In a tweet on Tuesday, Netflix Korea revealed that the series will be available on its streaming platform starting July 28, 2023.

The series, directed by Han Jun-hee and based on the webtoon "D.P. Dog's Day" by Kim Bo-tong, follows Jun-ho and Ho-yeol of the Deserter Pursuit unit of the Korean military as they encounter the realities unknown to them while they chase after deserters with various backstories.

The first season of "D.P." was highly acclaimed for its social commentary and resonated with many audiences.

The second season brings back together director Han and the same main cast members from the first season, including Jung Hae-in and Koo Kyo-hwan, who respectively played An Jun-ho and Han Ho-yeol.

The fantastic duo from the D.P. unit, Kim Sung-Kyun, who played D.P. Unit Chief Park Beom-gu, and Son Suk-ku, who played Lieutenant Lim Ji-Seop, will also bring the teamwork and rock-solid chemistry back to the new season.

Netflix has consistently published great South Korean content, and "D.P." is among its most popular releases. Kim Bo-tong's contribution to the series as a screenplay co-writer is one of the reasons why it has been well received.
