The show is rumoured to be aired around 2021, no official statement has been released by the makers of the show in this regard. According to sources, the production of the show has stopped for the time being because of the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus. This might lead to further delay in the release of the series’ new season. However, the fans are hoping for the best.
The renewal of the show was announced back in 2017, after the air of the fourth season, where it officially announced that the series will be getting a green light for at least 3 more seasons.

Looking at the previous season, we expect Season 6 additionally to be six episodes, beginning with the very first episode, which is officially named ‘Black Day’.
