Viewers of Absolutely India: Mancs In Mumbai absolutely loved the six-part series but following the sad death of Dougie James, 72, will there be a follow-up?
After the first series ended this spring, viewers began predicting there would be a second series.
The popular show followed brothers Ryan, Adam and Scott Thomas as they discovered their family roots in India alongside their dad Dougie.
Will there be second series after Absolutely India: Mancs In Mumbai?
In episode five of the series Ryan and his dad went off to discover more about their family roots and found out Dougie’s grandmother was Caribbean.
The pair met Dougie’s cousin Glen, who had flown in from Dubai.
Glen revealed a gravestone which had the name of Dougie’s Grandma Rose on it.
Glen said: “Rose was West Indian. She had Caribbean blood.”
Ryan said: “Say again?” to which Glen said: “Yes, West Indian, Caribbean. That’s our bloodline.”
Mancs in the Caribbean?
The former Coronation Street actor asked: “So we have Caribbean in us?” to which Glen said: “Yes!”
We’re finding out more than we expected.
Ryan exclaimed: “No we don’t!”
Glen replied: “We have. Why do we have the curly hair? Where do we get it from? Grandma Rose.”
Ryan said: “Oh my God. This is amazing!”
Dougie admitted: “That’s a shock. Dad’s never mentioned that.”
Ryan said: “We’re finding out more than we expected.”
Speaking to the camera, he added: “Our great-grandma, my dad’s grandma was black, Caribbean, West Indian.
“We had no idea! Really special that. Really, really special. We’ve got Caribbean blood in us, who would have thought it?”
Viewers then predicted a second series will see the boys visit the Caribbean.
The Thomas brothers visit their grandad’s former one-room house, which he shared with his brother, two sisters, mum and dad.

In May, the boys appeared on ITV’s Lorraine and discussed future plans for the show.
Lorraine Kelly asked if they would do Bollywood movies to which Adam said: “I don’t know about that. Listen, I’d love to go out there again.
“To go to Bollywood and go back to Mumbai. Any chance we get to go back there… and especially to do a film out there? You never know, Lorraine! Watch this space.”
What a fitting tribute to their father Dougie it would be.
