The reality TV show which was founded by Gurinder Chadha and was originally dubbed as the Asian version of TOWIE ‘Desi Rascals has been axed from TV after viewing figures slumped during the second series.
‘Desi Rascals’ originally ran on Sky Living for the first series, then moved to Sky1 for the second. It was hoped that by moving the show to Sky1 for season two the ratings would improve, but sadly this didn’t happen. The show is believed to have averaged at around 110,000 viewers, with some episodes just about hitting the 70,000 mark.
Desi Rascals posted on social media apologising to fans who were eagerly awaiting an announcement for the third series.
“We’re sorry to say that
#DesiRascals will not be returning for a new series. We shared so many memorable moments…!
Jo Shah, one of the leading faces of Desi Rascals sent this message to everyone, “Want to say a massive thank you to everyone who watched and supported Desi Rascals. I have had so much fun filming with my family, sharing parts of my life and meeting new friends which will be for life. So grateful for this experience and a massive thank you to the epic production team we worked with in series 1 where it all began!! Lots of love to the Desi crew and supporters.”
