We present a family of reducible cyclic codes constructed as a direct sum (as vector spaces) of two different semiprimitive two-weight irreducible cyclic codes. This family generalizes the class of reducible cyclic codes that was reported in the main result of [10]. Moreover, despite of what was stated therein, we show that, at least for the codes studied here, it is still possible to compute the frequencies of their weight distributions through the cyclotomic numbers in an easy way.
