OCN Says 'The Uncanny Counter' May Have Season 2, But Nothing Decided Yet

OCN's Saturday-Sunday original TV drama 'The Uncanny Counter' may be getting a season 2 after successfully breaking several records.

OCN revealed on December 23 that, "We are preparing for the season 2 of 'The Uncanny Counter'. However, specific productions have not been decided yet."

Starring Jo Byung Gyu, Kim Sejeong, Yoo Jun Sang and Yeom Hye Ran, 'The Uncanny Counter' is a refreshing drama where a group of demon hunters called 'Counter' disguise themselves as employees of a noodle restaurant to defeat evil spirits on Earth. It is based on a webtoon of the same name. It is different from the nature of OCN channels, which have a large share of psychological thrillers in a dark atmosphere, and was considered experimental or challenging at the time of its planning.

However, it has become the OCN's show with the highest ratings ever. In the 8th episode, which aired on December 20, it recorded a rating of 9.302%, the first show to reach 9% viewership on OCN. At the same time, it also broke the record for the highest ratings ever for an OCN's original drama.

As a result, the 2nd season, which was not originally scheduled, is currently being pursued. The production team will revise the script of the second half and coordinate with the original author. Discussions on the 2nd season with the actors are also important. Therefore, it is expected that season 2 will be confirmed only when everything fits together. Even if it can start production in 2021, it is expected that the production will begin in 2022.

Meanwhile, 'The Uncanny Counter' will not air on December 26 and 27 due to internal circumstances. The second half is scheduled to air in January.
