‘The Indian Detective’ is a Canadian crime comedy drama series that airs CTV in Canada, and on Netflix in the US and elsewhere. Created by Frank Spotnitz and Smita Bhinde, the show follows an Indo-Canadian police officer from Toronto who gets caught up in a murder investigation while visiting his ailing father in India.
A relatively new show, Season 1 of ‘The Indian Detective’, consisting of four episodes, premiered on November 23, 2017, and it received mixed reviews from television critics and audiences alike. Yet, despite not enjoying critical acclaim, the show has a chance of being renewed for a second season. Here’s everything we know about it thus far.
The Indian Detective Cast: Who is in it?
The show has a pretty compact cast list, and famed Indian-origin Canadian comedian Russell Peters plays the role of the protagonist, Toronto police officer Douglas “Doug” D’Mello. Veteran Indian actor Anupam Kher, meanwhile, plays the role of Doug’s father Stanley D’Mello, who lives in the city of Mumbai.
Other important cast members include Christina Cole as Robyn “Bob” Gerner, Mishqah Parthiephal as Priya Sehgal, William Shatner as David Marlowe, Deepti Jal Singh as Seema, Meren Reddy as Inspector Abhishek Devo, and Hamza Haq as Gopal Chandekar / Amal Chandekar.
If the show does return for a second season, we would expect Russell Peters and a few of the other cast members to make a comeback and reprise their roles.
