This could be good or bad news for “Reply 1994” fans.
On November 29, a representative from tvN stated, “We decided to extend ‘Reply 1994’ by one episode so there will be a total of 21 episodes. The drama is currently in the middle of its story, but we decided to extend it an episode because it would have been difficult to explain the story in 20 episodes.”
