In the pink top, Yuri is looking too cute However, Yuri also passes it to Anthony Keyvan, and after watching this Keyvan says, ‘Oh My God’. He also passes it to Anna by saying, ‘You’re going to want to see this one.’

XO, Kitty Season 2: Expectation
Previously, we have seen that the XO, Kitty season 1 concludes with multiple cliffhangers that are going to solve in a second season. At first, Kitty confesses to Dae that she has felt for someone else. He has convinced that it’s Min Ho but Kitty says that she has fallen for Yuri. As expected, the pair has broken up but it’s still foggy if that chapter is closed for good or some sacrifices are going to be a part of the show.
Kitty tries to tell Yuri how she feels before she returns to the US but Juliana shows up and things become clear that she’s still with Yuri. The most disappointing fact for Kitty is Yuri and Juliana’s parents have now permitted them to be together. In season 2, we are going to see Kitty will explore her sexuality and end up in a love triangle with Yuri and Juliana.
However, Min Ho sits next to Kitty on her flight home and reveals that he’s in love with her. Oh and Kitty also comes to know that her mother’s first love was called Simon, which will make the scenario more complicated for the writers in season 2.
As discussing what he desires for Dae in season 2, Minyeong told Teen Vogue: “I would want him to learn how to transform his relationship [with Kitty] from lovers to friends. I think that’s really hard, but if you can do that, you can still keep…the person. That’s not only about just partners; it’s just love again. So I really hope that Dae keeps the love towards Kitty.”
Kitty x Yuri
After arriving in Korea to become closer to her long-distance boyfriend Dae, by the end of the season, Kitty finds that Yuri has feelings for someone else. This way a love triangle has formed.
However, before Kitty has the opportunity to expose her feelings for Yuri, she is interrupted by the appearance of Juliana, the girl Yuri is in love with. After this Kitty has not confessed her feelings, and boarded her plane back to the US.
After a terrible expulsion from KISS, Kitty decides she will never meet Yuri again, but, little does she aware that Yuri is trying to convince her mother, Jina, to reinstate her. If Kitty is going to reattend KISS then she has to again face Yuri, whom she never wants to be.
Min Ho x Kitty
When Kitty was travelling on her plane, she was surprised to find she was on the same plane as Min Ho. After knowing from Kitty that she and Dae were no longer together, and this is the reason Kitty was returning to America, the young man had nothing to lose and just confessed his own feelings for her.
Who is Simon?
Jina sent the letter that Kitty’s mom, Eve, had written for her to Kitty. After reading the letter, Kitty found the name of the mysterious Simon who is her mother’s potential first love.
As expected Kitty returns to Jina and questions her all about “Simon” and also how Jina and her mother become friends.
XO, Kitty Season 2: Cast
XO, Kitty second season will contain Anna Cathcart (Kitty), Minyeong Choi (Dae), Anthony Keyvan (Q), Gia Kim (Yuri), Sang Heon Lee (Min Ho), Peter Thurnwald (Alex) and Regan Aliya (Juliana) and Yunjin Kim (Principal Jina Lim) all return in season 2.
Elsewhere, we imagine that season 2 would also introduce some new characters into the mix, including Kitty’s mum’s first love Simon.
XO Kitty Season 2 Release Date
The shooting of the first season took place between March 28th, 2022, and June 7th, 2022. It indicates means between the start of filming, and the show being released, was a period of fourteen months.
Assuming the show’s renewal, it could take a minimum of fourteen months between filming, and release. If the filming was to begin in June 2023, at the earliest we’d be waiting until August 2024.
We are expecting the second season of the series could be released in late 2024. By following XO, Kitty season 1, we can assume that XO, Kitty season 2 would contain 10 half-hour episodes.
Here is the teaser:
