As per a report, there was no plan in place initially for the second season. The production team is in discussion to make it a seasonal series, but it depends on the availability of the dates of the actors for the shoot.
"Since there was initially no talk about the drama becoming a seasonal series, the production team had to consider a number of things. The biggest factor was the schedule of the lead cast, so they had to check into that early. The crew is currently inquiring about the possibility of starting filming for the second season in September 2021 and airing it in the first half of 2022," an insider is quoted as saying by Sompi.
Responding to the rumours, OCN has confirmed it to News1 stating that they are planning to turn The Uncanny Counter into a series. However, the shooting dates and the details of the production have not been finalised yet.
