The original plan was to extend “On Air” by three episodes, but the latest news is that it would be just 1 episode, making it 21 episodes in total.
Screenwriter Kim Eun Suk had written on “On Air” official forum on 30th April, “There had been many discussion about the drama extensions, but the drama will officially end at 21 episodes and that’s definite.”
Since airing, “On Air” which talks about the story behind tv drama production has been enjoying high ratings and popularity among viewers. The word on the street was that it would be extended by three episodes.
The three episodes extension arosed from the pending discussions with the cast members and one SBS staff had expressed then, “We are now in discussion with the cast and they have agreed to the extension too.”
But the schedules of the cast members was a big problem and it was practically very difficult to extend it to three episodes because of this.
According to someone from the production team, “Nothing has been decided officially and we haven’t receive any word from the tv station”, “But since the screenwriter has said this, I guess it would be extended to 21 episodes.”
Thus SBS “On Air” will air it’s final episode on 15th instead of 22nd May and MBC “Spotlight” would undoubtedly be immensely happy with this news.
