On the 6th, according to the broadcasting industry, Taxi Driver’s producing company Studio S has let out its plans for the second season.
It is still at the beginning stage of the planning process, and they haven’t come up with the exact production date yet. However, they started recruiting the staff aiming to air the series next year. Some of the actors who appeared in Season 1 were reportedly informed of the matter to discuss whether they would star in the next season or not.
Ended on May 29th, Taxi Driver tells the story of a private “revenge” agency ‘Rainbow Taxi Company.’ Its thrilling action scenes and satisfying plot scored the highest viewership ratings of 16 percent (Nielsen Korea). After season 1’s finale, there were a lot of requests for season 2.
With high viewership ratings and enthusiasm, the production company hurried up and decided to make another season. As it deals with various social issues in each episode, they came up with the idea of making this into a franchise series. What’s most important is the main actors’ schedules for next year. For now, there is a positive outlook that they will most likely join the following season.
Previously, Lee Je Hoon and Kim Ui Seong had shown a passion for the following seasons in their interviews. They’ve said, “There must be a Season 2.”
