Rating And Possible Another Season
With this ending it is very likely that we may get another season. Although it will be very difficult to gather all the actors again and the amount of finances that will be required to make all this possible. A source from drama stated, “The staff would definitely like to move forward with a second season. The end credits clip in episode 18 reflected that desire.” Rating wise producers will also feel that they were a bit behind from what they actually wanted.
