Has Taxi Driver been renewed for Season 3?
At the time of writing, SBS have renewed Taxi Driver for season 3. Given the popularity of the show’s first season as well as the love showered by fans to season 2, that’s perhaps unsurpising.
The new season of Taxi Driver has recorded steady No. 1 nationwide ratings for its timeslot with their highest rated episode, Episode 14 scoring 18.3% nationwide ratings.
Officially, the show has been renewed for a third season. Given the fact that the show covers a lot of real-life incidents of crime, there’s plenty of material to mine here. You can actually check out more of this news over at Soompi in their latest article.
It’s likely that it could be released in December of 2023 or early 2024.
What we know about Taxi Driver Season 3 so far:
Seeing that most of the cases from Seasons 1 and 2 were inspired by real-life stories of crime, a third season of Taxi Driver will likely see the team avenge recent victims who have been wronged.
With how season 2 ended, an epilogue from the last episode showed Do-gi entering a military base camp as the investigating officer of a sexual assault case involving a female soldier who was assaulted by her seniors.
We can also hear the other military officers talking about killing easily being able to kill Do-gi if he was to expose them. Do-gi reports to duty in December 2023, which is a date in the future and this could be a major clue to the upcoming release of the new season of Taxi Driver 3. We generally aim to update this page when more information becomes available.
