Mrs. Cop 2 in consideration for SBS weekend schedule
So it looks like this is really happening. There’s always talk about second seasons that never goes anywhere, but SBS is considering Season 2 of police drama Mrs. Cop for a weekend timeslot as soon as February 2016. The move to weekends doesn’t seem like a bad idea, given that the badass ajumma cop drama likely has a really strong ajumma fanbase. It’s also a slick cop procedural too though, which is more of a departure for weekend SBS fare.
Mrs. Cop premiered in August of this year and brought in solid 15.8% ratings in its weeknight timeslot. It’s an ensemble police drama led by tough working mom detective Kim Hee-ae, her friend-boss-love-interest Kim Min-jong, and her teammates Lee Da-hee and Sohn Ho-joon (who share a sweet loveline of their own).
The network was quick to say that nothing’s been decided and the schedule’s still being negotiated. One outlet reported that the production is getting ready to start back up for Season 2, and that 90 percent of the cast is coming back, while Kim Hee-ae is still in contract negotiations. Um… you do realize that your so-called 10 percent may as well be 100 percent, right? I know she’s only one person, but SHE’S MRS. COP.
If we haven’t gotten Kim Hee-ae to sign on the dotted line, I’m thinking there’s still a ways to go before Mrs. Cop 2 becomes a reality. In any case, they’re looking at the Saturday-Sunday slot following I Have a Lover, which is a 50-episode series ending in February.
