Update: “Partners For Justice” Director Leaves MBC, Season 3 Prospect Unclear
Updated August 29 KST:
On August 29, it was confirmed that Director No Do Chul submitted his letter of resignation to MBC. He has been with the network since 1996 and directed both the first and second seasons of “Partners for Justice.” Prospects for the production of a third season of the show are now unclear.
A source from MBC has come forth with a statement regarding a possible third season for “Partners for Justice”!
On July 30, an MBC source told media outlet News1, “We are currently considering the production of a third season, but nothing has been decided as of yet.”
“Partners for Justice” wrapped up its second season on July 29 with a personal best in viewership ratings, scoring 9.9 percent nationwide according to Nielsen Korea.
Although nothing is yet confirmed about a third season being in the works, because of the way season two ended and the fact that Director No Do Chul revealed the possibility of a third season at the “Partners for Justice 2” press conference, there is a high possibility that “Partners for Justice 3” will become a reality.
Viewers were shocked by the finale of season two, in which Do Ji Han (played by Oh Man Seok) joined forces with Jang Chul (played by No Min Woo) after becoming a lawyer. The two were believed to be dead after being shot by the contract killer that was ordered to murder Kal Dae Chul (played by Lee Do Guk), but they appeared to be alive in a closing credits clip, raising speculation for a third season.
