Gokusen Season 3
Rumors of a third season of the "Gokusen" drama series were confirmed on Wednesday. Yukie Nakama will reprise her role as the teacher Kumiko Yamaguchi (affectionately known as "Yankumi").
Based on a manga by Kozueko Morimoto, "Gokusen" has already had two previous seasons. The first, in 2002, averaged ratings of 17.4%, while the 2005 sequel averaged ratings of 28.0%.
The third series will premiere in April on NTV, though the specific time slot has not yet been announced. Casting for the students will be decided around the end of this year.
I'm so happy to hear this as I was really disappointed in Yukie Nakama current drama Joshi Deka. I'll post more about this after the 3rd season's students are announced. They've had some great stars as students in the first two season with Matsumoto Jun, Oguri Shun, Koike Teppei, Akanishi Jin, Kamenashi Kazuya just to name a few. Personally I'd love to see Ikuta Toma as a member of Kumiko's class
