On 26 July 2017, DAWN Images reported that titled Laal Ishq, the sequel, will also be written by Khalil-ur-Rehman Qamar and directed by Dilawar Malik. Qamar said, "I believe that the story-line has a coherent continuity and follows a rational trajectory, reflecting what's happening in society today. It has few characters from the original but there is whole new plot and hook to the play but this is surely very close to my heart." Most of the original cast will also reappear after 15 years of its original, except Farah Shah whose role was terminated in the original. Durab Khalil, son of Qamar, and new cast members such as Arsalan Idress, Anzeela Abbasi, Faryal Mehmood and Saba Hameed will make their debut in very important roles. Ali Zafar might also have a comeback on television, if he wants.[3]

The sequel began airing from 14 October 2017 on A-Plus TV.[4] Its official soundtrack has been sung by Rahat Fateh Ali Khan.[5]
