SBS’ “Roommate” to End Its Run with Last Episode Today


SBS’ variety program “Roommate” will come to an end with its last episode airing today, April 14.

The second season of “Roommate” will be ending and the doors of the sharehouse will be closing today, in time for SBS’ seasonal reorganization for the spring.

The show first hit the air after joining the regular Sunday variety lineup in May of last year. It then kicked off a brand new season in September. Six months into the second season, there were rumors of discussion for another season. However, due to low viewer ratings and an unclear direction for the show and its cast, the discussion ended in the program’s cancellation.

Since the first season, “Roommate” became a highly-discussed show although it experienced a few bumps in the road. Over the course of two seasons, the show went through a number of changes and transitions, including a time slot shift that negatively impacted its viewership ratings.

Fortunately for fans, the return of a third season later on down the road has not completely been ruled out.

Meanwhile, the last episode is scheduled to air on April 14 at 4:50 p.m. (KST).
