News outlet OSEN (via Soompi reports that the new run of the global hit South Korean thriller series recently wrapped filming with a two-day wrap party taking place earlier this week in Gapyeong (about an hour’s drive from Seoul).

Quoting a source, they indicate that the project shot its second and third seasons altogether. They further specified that “a long story was filmed, which will be split and released as Seasons 2 and 3.”

They additionally indicate Season 2 will consist of six episodes, while Season 3 will feature around six or seven episodes and the two seasons will be released with a short gap citing fellow Korean series “The Glory”.

That series ran for sixteen episodes – launching with an eight-episode ‘Part 1’ on December 30th 2022 and the remaining eight as ‘Part 2 on March 10th 2023.
