Neeraj Pandey and his team at Friday Filmworks dropped a huge bomb earlier today when they announced that Special Ops 1.5: The Himmat Story — a spinoff on the immensely exciting and extremely popular Special Ops that release last year — is in the works. The web series, which will also see the light of day on Disney Hotstar, will revolve entirely around Kay Kay Menon‘s back story as a R&AW agent and how he uses his wits and intelligence for a different operation before metamorphosing into THE Himmat Singh and leading the team that saved India from a deadly attack, which we relished in the first Special Ops.
Opening on the delicious curveball that he and his team threw at us in an exclusive chat, Neeraj Pandey said, “The reception we got for the show (Special Ops 1) was the main reason, and we were not looking to far ahead in any case. We were waiting for part one to come out and see how people react to it. But once it came out, and once we found ourselves in this situation of creating a franchise, then this idea came about to do a Himmat story because we’ve not been able to tell a lot about him (in the first part). So we thought, let’s do a 1.5 — it’ll be for 3 episodes of 1 hour each. There’s not going to be a season 2. It’s only going to be a 1.5 with 3 exclusive episodes.”
Upon quizzing him further if the new development meant we’d have to wait longer for Special Ops 2, with all the main character returning, Neeraj Pandey graciously indulged us by saying, “No, Special Ops 2 comes out next year in 2020.”
Wow, Special Ops 1.5 this year and then season 2 the next! What more could a consumer wish form right?
