‘Hospital Playlist’ Season 3 Update: Is there still hope for a new season?

February 22, 2022

Just when fans thought there would be a Season 3 of Hospital Playlist, the cast of the hit TVN drama revealed the release of a Blu-ray set instead. The series’ leads and producer Shin Won Ho have made a surprise announcement that’s giving viewers hope.

Jo Jung Suk, Jung Kyung Ho, Jeon Mi Do, Yoo Yeon Seok, Kim Dae Myung and Shin Won Ho announced the release of the Blu-ray set. After the cast hinted at the possibility of a Hospital Playlist season 3, is there no hope for a new season?

In an official announcement on Instagram, they revealed that a Director’s Cut Blu-ray Disc of the series is in production. It would include seasons one and two, plus special commentary from the actors themselves.

While the announcement didn’t say when it would be released, it did hint that it might be soon. So stay tuned for a little longer, it said.

However, AllKpop noted that some fans were sad after the announcement that it wasn’t Hospital Playlist Season 3. Still, they wanted to wait for the Blu-ray Disc release and looked forward to the commentary video.

So why were fans expecting a new season? Because some cast members posted some photos together, many thought there would be a new season of the show.

In the snaps, the 99ers members could be seen in their surgical gowns and doctor’s coats. Given the tearful end to season two, there are plenty of stories to explore in the new season.

Although director Shin Won Ho previously claimed via Cheat Sheet that a new season isn’t an easy decision, a cast reunion could be easy. The doctors, meanwhile, have started new relationships and life adventures.

Ik Jun (Jo Jung Suk) and Song Hwa (Jeon Mi Do) are now dating. Someone even went abroad to study there. Will these particular storylines continue?

Sadly, Shin Won Ho revealed that he has no plans for a new season. Soompi even quoted that the new season might not come anytime soon due to some health issues.

The director stated that it was difficult for him to decide whether to continue the story as he had heard many concerns and exhaustion from producing the drama for more than one season. However, the fans and even the cast themselves hope that Hospital Playlist season 3 will still happen.
