September 28, 2016

SEOUL, Sept. 28 (Yonhap) — The U.S. remake of South Korean reality-travel show “Grandpa Over Flowers” is set to get a second season, the South Korean network said Wednesday.

In a press briefing to mark its 10th anniversary of opening, Lee Deok-jae, head of media content at tvN’s parent company CJ E&M, said, “A Korean-born reality show was aired on prime time U.S. television and it is confirmed that season 2 will be made.”

In 2014, NBC bought the remake rights for cable network tvN’s show. In August this year, it released the American version “Better Late Than Never.”

“It is a big deal. We expect the remake rights to be sold in other countries as well,” he said.
