The emergence of digital platforms has provided audiences with a great diversity of OTT content and it's not surprising that many shows have already garnered a dedicated fan base. And after treating fans to kickass seasons previously, these web series are now gearing up for their sequels. From The Family Man 3 and Special Ops 1.5 to Aarya 2, OTTplay looks at a list of shows that have been green-lit for their next season and what we already know about them:
The Family Man 3
Manoj Bajpayee led action thriller - The Family Man has been successful for two seasons now. Buoyed by the popularity of the show, makers of the hit series, Raj and DK are planning on a third season. Although Raj said they were yet to write the sequel, he confirmed that the COVID-19 situation will be surely discussed in the upcoming season, in an interview with Pinkvilla.
Special Ops 1.5
Kay Kay Menon impressed us as a RAW agent Himmat Singh who leads a task force of five agents from different parts of the world in the first season of the Hotstar show Special Ops. Director Neeraj Pandey is now planning a special spinoff of the series titled Special Ops 1.5: The Himmat Story. The special will focus on Himmat Singh’s backstory. Also, another full-fledged second season is in the works and is slated to release in 2022.
Little Things 4
Little Things, a show about staying in love and continuing to love despite all odds, followed the story of Dhruv (Dhruv Sehgal) and Kavya (Mithila Palkar),. Earlier this year, Netflix, which has now acquired the show, announced that the quirky, relatable couple will reunite for another season.
Scam 2003: The Curious Case of Abdul Karim Telgi
Pratik Gandhi-starrer Scam 1992: The Harshad Mehta Story was one of the biggest hits in the Indian original web series space. The makers of this series are coming up with another promising narrative. Hansal Mehta announced Scam 2003: The Curious Case of Abdul Karim Telgi, based on the stamp paper scam in India as the second instalment in the series.
Talking about the sequel, Hansal Mehta had said in a statement, “This is a challenging tale to tell. And even more so because it is the second season of such a successful show. We will work doubly hard to reciprocate this love and to make this season very exciting, authentic and engaging.”
The shoot for Sushmita Sen-led Aarya 2 had already begun earlier this year in Rajasthan. The actress plays a resilient woman who confronts every setback that comes her way with greater strength. Speaking about her role, the actress said, “Aarya represents strength, determination and above all vulnerability in a world full of crime, a world run by men. For me, personally, it is the story of family, betrayal and a mother who is willing to go to any length to protect her children.”
