[Image: 5Y3cvKn.jpg]MUMBAI: Recycling classic stories for an increasingly allegiance-fluid audience has become a norm for television content producers. The recent revival of Doordarshan’s ‘Chandrakanta’ from the 1990s by two rival Hindi GECs and the return of ‘Sarabhai vs Sarabhai’ in a new avatar on Star India’s OTT platform Hotstar only prove that classic stories are considered a safer bet by both broadcasters and content creators.

After the revival of ‘Sarabhai vs Sarabhai’ on Hotstar, another Balaji Telefilms show from the 1990s, ‘Hum Paanch’, which used to air on Zee TV, is set for a comeback on TV. The new season of the show, titled ‘Hum Paanch Phir Se’, will be launched on Big Magic towards the end of May. The exact date of launch or the timing of the show has not been confirmed yet.

Unlike the previous two seasons, the third season will be produced by Essel Vision Production and feature a new star cast. The producers are aiming to keep the basic plot intact while giving a modern spin to the story.

Speaking about the show, Big Magic programming head Shrabani Deodhar said, “Big Magic is known for its creative and compelling concepts revolving around the historical, mythological and kids fantasy genres. The channel aims to broaden its offering for the viewers with an interesting line-up of comedy and horror-centric shows. As part of our portfolio in the comedy space, we are bringing back the hit comedy show of ’90s as ‘Hum Paanch Phir Se’. Keeping the intrinsic elements of the popular show intact, the sequel is a modern take on the popular sitcom ‘Hum Paanch’. The viewers of the channel will be in for a comical ride daily with this new show post its launch.”

‘Hum Paanch’ was a popular TV series during the 1990s. The first season of the show ran from 1995 until 1999. On popular demand, the comedy drama returned for a second season in 2005 and ran until mid-2006. The show also marked the debut of Bollywood actor Vidya Balan. Its cast featured Shoma Anand, Ashok Saraf, Rakhee Tandon, Bhairavi Raichura and Vandana Pathak.
