The South Korean drama, Missing: The Other Side opened to positive reception from critics and viewers alike back in 2020. The series is a visual treat to thriller and fantasy fans with its riveting storyline and relatable characters. Centering upon the emotional and heartbreaking stories of a mysterious village, Duon village, where the dead live happily after, the show has given solace and comfort in its own strange ways to viewers of all kinds. With its second installment already out on Tvn, fans are looking ahead to see its future episodes. But, as of now, there is no renewal announcement for S3, leaving fans wondering about the series’ future.
It is too early to get any solid word on S3 because the next batch of episodes has just arrived. Don’t we want to be fully invested in the episodes until we hear any confirmation news? With that in mind, here is everything you must know about Missing: The Other Side Season 3, its premiere date, cast, and more:
Missing: The Other Side Season 3 Airing date
The Korean drama does not have a specific airing date for its future episodes as of now. However, we are positive tahr it lands on our screens sooner rather than later.
Its inaugural run launched in August 2020 followed by a quick renewal of part two that was primered in Q4 of 2022. Thus, its consistency gives us hope that fans would not wait for long to watch its new episodes. Assuming things go smoothly and the renewal arrives by early 2023, we could anticipate S3 in the last quarter of 2024, at the earliest.
Missing: The Other Side Season 3 Plot details:
The future plot heavily depends upon the ending of season two. So far, we have no official plot synopsis for season 3, making it hard to predict the storyline for further seasons fully. But, it is certain that the group will go on uncovering the truths behind mysterious disappearances and help the dead find a closure. Season 2 focuses on a new village, New Industrial Complex with new twists and turns. Kim Wook, Jang Pan-seok, and Lee-Jong-ah remain at the forefront to investigate the cases of missing people with no bodies to be found anywhere.
The last season saw the main characters longing to see their loved ones after they vanished from their lives. Kim Wook searched for his mother, who died when he was young, Pan-seok had a longing to see his daughter whereas Lee-Jong has been on a quest to find his fiancee after they parted ways after an argument.
Every dead soul/character living in Duon village meets its bittersweet end. The heartwarming stories of the characters have resonated with the audiences and gave them happy tears throughout the season.
If a third season happens, it will be equal parts of drama, mystery, and fantasy similar to its predecessors.
Missing The Other Side Season 3 Casting list
Though the cast for S3 has not yet been revealed, we hope to see most of our favorites back. That includes
Go Soo as Kim Wook, a con artist with impeccable talking skills, Heo Joon Ho as Pan Seok, a living secret seeker of the Duon Village, Ahn So Hee plays Lee Jong Ah, and Ha Jun as Shin Joon Ho.
Aside from the main characters, season two saw Lee Jung Eun and Kim Dong Hwi as the newest additions to the cast.
