Naagin started off in 2015 with Mouni Roy, Arjun Bijlani and Adaa Khan. While Mouni continued to lead the show in its second season, Karanvir Bohra replaced Arjun. The third season, which aired in 2018, starred Surbhi Jyoti, Pearl V Puri, Anita Hassanandani and Rajat Tokas. The show, in 2020, got a new name and a new star cast. Titled Naagin: Bhagya Ka Zehreela Khel, the show starred Nia Sharma and Vijayendra Kumeria, which did not get good TRPs.
In an Instagram video, Ekta Kapoor accepted that the season suffered due to mediocre writing compared to the last seasons. “I want to thank all my actors, Nia, Anita, Vijayendra and Jasmin. You guys did a brilliant job. If anything, I have let you all down. I think we worked a little less on the script this season. It was mediocre and I promise we will do better this time. Hope all of you (the audience) will come back. We really want to make something special and amazing. We are working really hard and diligently for the new season,” she had shared. Soon, the fifth season of Naagin was aired. It took over the television screens from August 2020 to February 2021. It had Surbhi Chandna, Sharad Malhotra and Mohit Sehgal in the lead roles.
As per reports, the sixth season is set to premiere from January 30 onwards.
