Telly soaps gear up for their seasonal return
A still from Na Bole Tum Na...Season 2
Indian television sees a phenomenal change as various soaps are heading for seasonal stints

Fictional shows spinning across various seasons is nothing new for English GECs and in most cases they have successfully retained their audiences. But when it comes to Indian television, though most reality shows have successfully had numerous seasons, fiction shows were unable to garner similar kind of popularity in their subsequent seasonal runs.

Undeterred by the not so successful seasonal returns of Kitani Mohabbat HaiBaa Bahoo Aur Baby, and Chhoti Bahu, some fiction shows are headed for a second season this year. While Na Bole Tum Na Maine Kuchh Kaha's second season is already on air and is grabbing average TRPs, shows like The Serial, Mann Ki Aawaz...Pratigya, Dil Se Di Dua...Saubhagyavati Bhav?, Saas Bina Sasural and Kuch Toh Log Kahenge are planning their second innings. This reinforces the fact that 2013 is likely to be the year of comebacks of previous successful shows.

So are Indian audiences ready for second seasons of daily soaps? Prem Kamath, EVP of a fiction channel shares, "Very rarely do fiction shows have fresh seasons. Indian television soaps often drag on for years and end on a meaningless note with low TRPs. So, if producers plan to bring back fresh seasons of fiction shows, there's no reason why audiences won't accept the change. Seasons of fiction shows will surely work."

But it will be a challenging proposition to create a new seasons for a fiction show, considering the Indian audience are still not familiar with this concept. Producer Sudhir Sharma, whose Na Bole Tum... has just been launched in its second season shares, "The idea behind a fresh season of any fiction show is that there is a lot left to explore in the story and audiences identify with the storyline and characters. If Season 1 gets appreciated and the next season is planned well, it can work. Planning a Season 2 is a huge responsibility. But who says people don't know the concept of seasons in India? If it is handled well, it is a relatable concept."

So what do actors who have been part of previous stints say about new seasons of fiction shows? Pooja Gor, whose Mann Ki Awaz... Pratigya is going to have a second season soon, says, "I am happy to be part of the second season of Pratigya. The story of the first season was much appreciated so, it's a good idea to have a second season of a successful show."

Karanvir Bohra, whose Dil Se Di Dua... is also slated for a seasonal return towards the middle of the year, says, "I'm very excited with the idea. The concept of seasons in fiction shows should work as people do relate to some characters from previous seasons. It is good for a successful show to take a break and come back with a crisper and better storyline rather than dragging a meaningless storyline."

As some telly soaps gear up for their seasonal return in 2013 — TRPs will be the deciding factor to indicate whether the change is accepted wholeheartedly or not.
