With KBS drama Producer airing its finale this week, many are already questioning the possibility of a second season to follow up as a sequel.
Starring Kim Soo Hyun, Gong Hyo Jin, Cha Tae Hyun, and IU, four trending icons as the main leads, Producer will end quicker than normal Korean dramas, with only 12 episodes in total. Producer involves a complicated relationship between the four leads, instead of a typical love triangle, drawing in numerous fans to watch it each week. The latest episode (Episode 10) hit a high viewership rating of 15.4% (AGB, Seoul).
An official for the drama stated, “Viewers have requested for a new season, but we are in a stage where there are definitely no concrete plans for that yet. We have to do our best to wrap up the current series first.”
The last two episodes will be broadcasted 10 minutes longer than usual, airing for 80 minutes each night on this Friday and Saturday at 9:15PM KST.
