With this making the headlines, the audience and the evergreen fans of the show took no time to show their excitement on twitter and Instagram. With the writers doing their job and the casting team plotting the suitable characters, the show was most likely to air somewhere around February 2021, but as we know the current situation of the world, the release looks next to impossible with all the production being shut down, as a safety measure against the COVID-19 PANDEMIC.
With no official statement from the makers of the show, all we can expect is that the show will hit the screens before this really strange year ends, as this would be the one good thing that happens to us this year.
