Cult serial ‘CID’ to go off air on October 27
GUWAHATI: After a 21-year run, crime drama CID is set to go off air. Cast member Dayanand Shetty told the Mumbai Mirror tabloid that the October 27 episode will be the final one.
The show has been on air since 1998 and has clocked more than 1,540 episodes.
However, Sony Entertainment Television, on which the show is currently aired, said that a revamped CID will return after a break.
The police procedural stars Shivaji Satam as Assistant Commissioner of Police Pradyuman, Shetty as senior inspector Daya and Aditya Shrivastav as senior inspector Abhijeet. Recurring cast members are Dinesh Phadnis as Inspector Fredricks and Narendra Gupta as Dr. Salunkhe.
CID fans have taken to Twitter to protests against the decision and request Sony to save the show.
