At a press conference for "Investigation Partners Season 2" held on July 8th cast and crew for the drama have suggested that there is strong interest at MBC for a third season and that they are expecting a decision soon. "Invesigation Partners Season 2" was itself teased before the original "Investigation Partners" had finished, lending plausibility to the suggestion.
"Investigation Partners Season 2" has consistently won its timeslot on Monday and Tuesday night. The drama has not been a major hit, but it has posted above average ratings. Because of the high number of low performing dramas as of late, especially on MBC, a new season of "Investigation Partners" is a safer investment than trying something new. Still, director Noh Do-cheol expects that a new season will necessitate double digit ratings - the drama's latest episode was at 8.3%.
Actor Jung Jae-young had a more pessimistic outlook, noting that the actors in the drama were not exactly big stars. He also gave a smile suggesting that he himself could probably be replaced without too much trouble. This, coupled with Noh Do-cheol's comments about how a third season would focus more on Jung Yoo-mi, may be hints of possible casting changes should the third season come to fruition.
