After a successful 850 episodes, "LapataGanj" went off the air. The comedy show is now back with a leap of six years and the makers say they have brought the second season at viewers' request.

The new season is titled "Lapataganj Ek Baar Phir!" and it will show residents of the town getting access to facilities like water, electricity and mobile phone and how in spite of the minimal supply, they continue to live a contented life.

The beloved couple Indumati (Sucheta Khanna) and Mukundi (Rohitashv Gaur) will continue to play the protagonists alongside popular characters such as Kachua Chacha (Vineet Kumar">Vineet Kumar), Chukundi (Sanjay Chaudhury), Eiji and Biji Pandey (Abbas Khan), Surili (Aditi Telang), Mishri Mausi (Subhangi Gokhale), Chotu Mama (Anoop Upadhyay), Elizabeth Yadav (Krishna Bhatt) and Lallanji (Rakesh Shrivastav).

Anooj Kapoor, EVP and business head, SAB TV, said: "The show is back on public demand. We received numerous requests from our viewers to bring back the show and the characters that had won them over with their performances."

"The show will have a leap of six years. We now have ATM and mobile phone and there are a few new characters added to it but it will have the same old flavour," Kapoor added.

In the new season, Rohitashv's character gets a promotion. He gets a new scooter and adds a new floor to his old house.

Rohitashv said: "I always knew the show would be back. The show relates to every household in some way."

Sucheta, excited with the comeback of the show, said: "This is the most successful character of my career. I am delighted to be part of the show again."

The show will go on air June 10 at 10 p.m. on SAB TV.

    So happy that lapataganj is back... :-)
    And whoever you are this is not the way to hope for you show to return by showing some other show down.. It shows your cheap attitude and not fandom!

    Not related to the show but I wish IPKKND would come back with Barun Sobti. It's safe to assume that IPKKND has much larger fan following than this or any other show. So, it's only fair that the show comes back.
