On that note, well-known producer Rashmi Sharma says, “Saathiya has been a talking point since its launch in 2010. Even after it ended, it remained on top of my mind and we came up with some thoughts on how we could take it forward. During the lockdown, its reruns were widely watched and that made us believe this is a good time to bring it back with a second season. Its recall value is still very strong. There will be many new characters and a twist in the storyline, but it will remain a family show and driven by relationships. Saathiya can’t return without the Modi family, so yes, Kokilaben and Gopi will be back. We have already shot a teaser with Devoleena (Gopi) but at the same time the hunt is also on for the new faces.”
