The new Netflix animated show Lookism has been getting a lot of attention lately, and many fans can’t wait for more episodes. Netflix says this about the show, which is based on a popular webcomic with the same name: “A high school student wakes up one morning to find that he now has a handsome face and a perfect body.” On Dec. 8, the first eight episodes of the show were put on the streaming service.
Brittany Vincent of Decider gave Susan Haruye Ioka, who plays the main character’s mother, high marks in her review of the show. She wrote, “Ioka gives the character a convincing warmth that pulls at your heartstrings.” When her son is bullied and hurt at school, you can feel the pain in her heart, and it hurts like a knife.
After watching the short season, a lot of people are wondering if there will be more. Will there be more episodes? When will more Lookism episodes come out? Read on to find out what you need to know.

Netflix hasn’t said anything yet about plans for a second season, but that’s not a big deal since the show just started yesterday. So far, the streamer has been promoting the show regularly on its social media sites, which is a good sign.
Studio Mir, the animation studio behind the project, has worked with Netflix for a long time. They worked on The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf and DOTA: Dragon’s Blood, which has been on Netflix for three seasons. So, it doesn’t look like the giant streaming service wants to break up.

But on the other hand, Netflix’s track record with animated shows isn’t excellent, and this year the department’s budget and staff took a big hit. And in October, Weekly Toyo Keizai said (according to Cartoon Brew) that the streamer was cutting back on anime, especially from Japanese animation studios. It’s important to remember, though, that Studio Mir is based in Korea.
