Netflix India has announced the return of fan-favourite shows for their third season. Catch up on Mismatched, Fabulous Lives Of Bollywood Wives, Delhi Crime, Kota Factory, and She, as they continue to captivate audiences with their compelling storylines. Except for Kota Factory, all the other series had their second season’s premiere in 2022. The streaming giant has heeded the call of the fans, and viewers can brace themselves for another season of their beloved shows.
Sharing a video announcement on YouTube, Netflix India revealed that four popular dramas and one reality series had all been renewed for a third season. The caption along with the video stated, “Psstttt…. We have an announcement. They say the third time’s a charm and we took it seriously! Your favourite shows like Mismatched, Fabulous Lives Of Bollywood Wives, Delhi Crime, Kota Factory & SHE return for a much awaited Season 3! Streaming soon, only on Netflix!”
Mismatched stars Prajakta Koli and Rohit Suresh Saraf and is based on Sandhya Menon’s 2017 novel When Dimple Met Rishi. The series is about Rishi, a die-hard romantic, who falls for Dimple, a gamer, and eventually wants to marry her. Koli and Saraf took to Instagram to announce their return for the third season.
The actors posted a happy selfie from their Season 2 promotions and expressed their excitement to continue the story. The first instalment of the show premiered on November 20, 2020, followed by the second season on October 14, 2022. “We weren’t ready to say goodbye yet, so we’re coming back for you! #MismatchedS03,” the duo wrote in a joint Instagram post.
Delhi Crime is an International Emmy-winning show and stars Shefali Shah as DCP Vartika Chaturvedi, Rajesh Tailang as Inspector Bhupendra Singh, Rasika Dugal as Neeti Singh IPS and Adil Hussain as Kumar Vijay. While the first season of the show followed the story of the shocking 2012 Delhi gang-rape, the second season of the show told the story of the Chaddi Baniyan Gang. The fans of the show are eagerly waiting to know what the third season will bring along.
Shah also shared the Netflix India announcement on Instagram and wrote, “Madam sir is coming back with Delhi Crime Season 3 Only on @netflix_in.” Actress Dhrashti Dhami commented, “Can’t wait!.”
Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives focuses on the personal and professional lives of Neelam Kothari Soni, Maheep Kapoor, Bhavna Panday and Seema Kiran Sajdeh (formerly known as Seema Khan), the wives of Bollywood actors Samir Soni, Sanjay Kapoor, Chunky Pandey and Sohail Khan (they’re not married anymore). Maheep Kapoor posted on her Instagram Stories as well, “We are back!!!!! Season 3 coming your way hot off the tava!” She also shared the video announcement for the series.
Kota Factory, which is set in Kota, Rajasthan, follows the life of Vaibhav (played by Mayur More) who moves to Kota for studies. It shows the life of students in the city, and Vaibhav’s efforts to get into the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT).
It also stars Jitendra Kumar, Ahsaas Channa, Alam Khan, Ranjan Raj, Revathi Pillai and Urvi Singh in prominent roles. The second season showed Vaibhav struggling to keep up in the Maheshwari tuitions. Ahsaas Channa, who plays Shivangi in the series, also shared her excitement for the critically acclaimed show by The Viral Fever. Tagging her castmates, while sharing the announcement video, she wrote on her Instagram Stories, “Yes! We are coming back with Season 03!!!”
Lastly, She follows the story of a poor female constable in the police force who has been inducted in the Anti Narcotics Group to fight a major drug lord. As a part of the mission, Bhumika (Aaditi Pohankar) goes undercover as a prostitute in Mumbai city. We can’t wait to see what’s in store for us in the next season.
As we eagerly await the return of our beloved characters, it goes without saying that we’ll have to exercise some patience while the shows are written, filmed, and edited in post-production. It may be some time before fans can relish the familiar faces once again on their screens.
