Taxi Driver is getting a second season.
SBS stated on June 6th, “Taxi Driver is coming back with a second season due to its positive reception from fans. Original cast members, including Lee Je Hoon, Kim Eui Sung, Pyo Ye Jin, Jang Hyuk Jin, and Bae Yoo Ram, will be reuniting through the upcoming sequel.

The production team further shared, “We are completely prepared to present a more enjoyable and in-depth Season 2 in return for your love for Season 1. We shall return with an intriguing drama where you can check the true value of a caper story. Please stay tuned for Taxi Driver 2!”
