‘Fauda’ Indian Adaptation ‘Tanaav’ Renewed for Season 2



Tanaav,” the Indian adaptation of the global hit thriller series “Fauda,” will return for a second season. India’s Applause Entertainment, the content studio of India’s Aditya Birla Group, has secured format rights to Season 2 from Israel’s Yes Studios.

Produced by Applause Entertainment, “Tanaav” successfully premiered on SonyLIV in November 2022. The series is transposed from Israel and Palestine to the troubled area that is Kashmir and tells the story of a Special Covert Ops Unit.

Season 1 of “Tanaav” featured a stellar cast, including Manav Vij, Sumit Kaul, Rajat Kapoor and Shashank Arora, and was directed by Sudhir Mishra (“Serious Men”) and co-directed by Sachin Mamta Krishn (“Hostages”). Production on Season 2 has commenced.

Sharon Levi, managing director of Yes Studios, pointed out that “Tanaav” was the first local adaptation of “Fauda,” the “first big global hit” of Yes Studios.

Speaking of Applause Entertainment, Levi said: “It was very important for us to work with the right partner, one that could deftly cover differing perspectives in a highly complex situation and create interesting and relevant characters anchored in its own unique local setting and circumstances.”

Sameer Nair, managing director of Applause Entertainment, said “Tanaav” Season 1 was a resounding success. “The teams at Applause and Sony LIV are pumped as we set out to craft an even more gripping tale for our audience with a Season 2.” Nair described the show as a tale of “courage, conflict, and camaraderie.”

”‘Fauda’ is about two countries, Israel and Palestine and it is about two religions. We didn’t want to do that. This is not about religion. This is not about Hindu versus Muslim. This is India versus, let’s say, terrorism or another kind of extreme ideology,” Mishra had told Variety about Season 1.

Mishra’s last work was film “Afwaah,” which had a theatrical release before bowing on Netflix.

Applause recently revealed a South Asian content partnership with ZEE5’s Zindagi. The studio’s hits for SonyLIV include two seasons of “Scam.”

Created by Avi Issacharoff and Lior Raz, “Fauda” follows work of a team of elite Israeli undercover agents. It has collected numerous awards, including best series at the Israeli Academy TV Awards, and has been critically acclaimed in press across the world. “Fauda” is produced by L. Benasuly Productions and Yes TV, with Yes Studios distributing the series and format. “Fauda” has just been renewed by Israeli network Yes for a fifth season, according to multiple local reports confirmed by Variety.
