"Kodoku no Gurume" to be back as New Year drama SP in January 2017

"Kodoku no Gurume" will be back as a New Year drama SP which is due to be shown via TV Tokyo on 2 January 2017 with the title "Kodoku no Gurume Oshogatsu SP ~ Inogashira Goro no Nagai Ichinichi" (The solitary gourmet New Year SP ~ A long day of Inogashira Goro). The one-hour SP to be shown from 11.20pm to 12.20am will feature the lead character Goro (Matsushige Yutaka) on his working day in Tokyo. To date, the SPs showed him on business trips to places like Kyushu, Hokkaido and Tohoku but this time, he will be based at "home" and visit various places for food during the day. In addition, the author of "Kodoku no Gurume" Kusumi Masayuki will also be back in his usual segment "Furatto QUSUMI" where he visits the restaurant featured in the drama at the end of the episode.

Matsushige commented that it has been 5 years since the series began so it won't be surprising if they revisit any of the restaurants before which were featured in the past. As for the guest lineup, it will be announced at a later date.
