According to a report in Mumbai Mirror, Archana Puran Singh — who has established herself as a seasoned comedy show judge — will also be making a comeback to TV with the show.

Archana was a part of all the previous seasons and is quite excited about the upcoming season. She told Mirror, “We start shooting on 17 June. It’s like a homecoming… I don’t think I shed a tear when Comedy Circus closed down for a few years, but when I walk back on the sets I will be misty-eyed. It will be quite the nostalgia trip as I will be meeting old friends and colleagues. There is so much zeal behind the show.

It’s the love of my fans and support from the media that has brought me back. I will be performing with actress Karishma Sharma and comedian Mubeen. The rehearsals have begun, and I can’t wait to face the camera again,” he told Mirror.
