Whereas in an earlier statement actor Dayanand Shetty said that the show would be going off-air, a new statement from the channel says that the show will be gearing up for a new season after the break "with a lot more contextual cases keeping alive the thrill that the audience has experienced so far".

In a statement to Mumbai Mirror, Shetty said that the team stopped shooting about five days ago. He added that CID was in its 21st year and would have entered its 22nd year had they filmed a few more episodes.

"It is quite unfortunate thing to happen as we were shooting like always and suddenly we were informed by our Producer (BP Singh) that the shooting has been called off indefinitely because there were issues with the channel," he said, adding that he would be missing the character and the team, as they were like his second home.

The police procedural, which premiered in 1998, had earlier gone off air but had to be brought back on popular demand. The series has completed 1,546 episodes. The characters, ACP Pradyuman (Shivaji Satam), senior inspectors Abhijeet (Aditya Shrivastava) and Daya (Dayanand Shetty), and inspector Fredricks (Dinesh Phadnis), attained an iconic status on the small screen over the years.
