Doctor Foster Indian Remake Returning to Disney+ Hotstar


Out of Love, the Indian adaptation of the Doctor Foster format, has been renewed by Disney+ Hotstar for a second season.

In its first season, Out of Love was rated in India as one of the most successful new scripted series of 2019 and received multiple awards and nominations. Rasika Dugal and Purab Kohli will also reprise their roles in season two as Dr. Meera and Akarsh Kapoor, respectively.

Beyond India, the Doctor Foster format has been licensed to Russia, France and South Korea.

Sameer Gogate, business head of production for India at BBC Studios, said: “The first season of Out of Love demonstrated the universality of the themes in Doctor Foster, such as complex relationships, insecurity and betrayal—whilst taking on a fully Indian way of storytelling. We are very excited to continue this association with Hotstar Specials and return with the excellent cast and crew, and to continue bringing the saga of Dr. Meera Kapoor in season two of Out of Love to screens here.”
