However, with the conclusion of the second season, fans across the world are wondering whether the hit Korean drama series will be back for another season or not.
So If you want detailed news about season 3 of The Good Detective then do read this post till the end.
Will There Be a Season 3 of The Good Detective?
As of this writing, The Good Detective has not been commissioned for a 3rd season by JTBC. However, it’s not uncommon for the show makers to wait until they choose whether to have another season. In many cases, most Korean dramas consist of only a single-season series and end things entirely by the finale. So once the finale is being witnessed, we’re able to feel what type of story the writers have in mind. Nonetheless, this simply doesn’t mean that the series will not be back for another season. While most K-drama lovers enjoy single-season tales, the thought of having a second season always comes to our minds. Hence, K-dramas over the recent years have witnessed a dramatic increase in having two or more seasons which has now become the new normal.
So if we’re lucky enough we might be able to get to see more of “The Good Detective.” But for now, let’s cross our fingers and wait for positive news.
