The followers of this medical drama were looking forward to hear about an official announcement from SBS about the show's renewal. The broadcasting channel and the production team shared the renewal news on Thursday, September 15. At this point, it is worth noting that it took three years for the team to come up with a second season.

Another factor that increased the chances of this popular medical drama to return with a third season is its story line. The mini-series never revolved around one or two characters. Every character in the show had a story to share with the viewers. And, some of the most popular characters, like nurse Park Eun Tak and freelance anaesthesiologist Nam Do Il, are yet to share their stories with the viewers.

Third factor that increased the chances of show renewal is the willingness of cast members to return for a new season. Familiar faces always attract viewers and that was the major reason for a successful run of Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim season 2. The viewers can never get enough of Dr. Kim Sa Bu aka Boo Young Joo and Han Suk Kyu has already opened up about his willingness to appear in another set of episodes.

So, let's wait for Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim season 3. Until then, catch up with all the episodes of season 1 and 2 online here.
