‘The Kumars’ set to be revived for US television

Popular series ‘The Kumars At No.42′ is set to make a comeback on US TV.

The comedy, which aired on the BBC between 2001 and 2006, followed by a brief series on Sky One in 2014, is expected to run a pilot, ordered by FOX.

The original cast members including Sanjeev Bhaskar, Meera Syal and Vincent Ebrahim will return to the show. Shaheen Khan will also be joining the cast as Rani, Sanjeev’s new stepmother.

The show’s description read, “We all remember the Kumars and their only son Sanjeev’s dreams of being a famous chat show host. How his obliging parents bulldozed the garden at their modest family home to build him a TV studio and make his dreams come true, whilst also (along with his unconventional grandmother) insisting on embarrassing him in front of every guest.

“Yet over the years, the great and the good from the worlds of stage, screen and sport flocked to be on The Kumars’ show. And now, the mischievous family has returned! A little older, more experienced but none the wiser.”

The pilot is expected to be filmed on 13th March 2024.
