The other day, I asked all the cast/crew members from TCIndonesia, on Instagram, if they knew anything about season three. Several people were kind enough to respond and provide a bit of insight into whether or not there'll be a new season. Here the responses are.

Lee Jeong Hoon:

takeshiscastlefan: I love your work.. do you know if there will be season 3 to #takeshicastleindonesia?

leejeonghoon: makasi~~ coming soon

takeshiscastlefan: Yay, thank you! emoticon

So this sounded fairly promising (although I couldn't find a translation for "makasi"...), and made me thing they'd be filming within the year.

Next up was new guard Kimau:

takeshiscastlefan: I love your role on Takeshi's Castle Indonesia. Do you know if there will be a new season?

kimaugerbang: really?

takeshiscastlefan: I hope!

So this conversation seemed more like I was letting him know there'd be a new season (I hope this isn't the case, and I've not made him think that he has a new job emoticon ). So this was a bit less of a promising response.

The other guard I got a (much better) answer out of was Tyson:

takeshiscastlefan: Hi Tyson, I love Takeshi Castle Indonesia and the character you play! Do you know if there will be a season three? The keshi-heads have been dying to know

tysonlynch: first off, thank you very much for your appreciation of the show and all the cast and team MNC tv & my character Algojo!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon Honestly im not sure at this point, there is a possibility, we HOPE and PRAY there is a season 3!! it's A LOT OF FUN. GBUemoticon

takeshiscastlefan: Thank you for your reply! I shall hope and pray too because I love Takeshi's Castle and MNC, it's like a dream combination haha. Anyway, fingers really crossed I hope it's still set up just in case!

I might not actually be adding this purpose to my prayer list, but I appreciated the cordial response and to hear that someone else cared. I commented the last bit about hoping it's still set-up so I could try to gleam whether or not the games are still there. I didn't find-out, but I guess they are.

The princess/maid character also responded:

takeshiscastlefan: I love Takeshi Castle Indonesia! Do you know if they will do #takeshicastleindonesia? Thank you

moa_aeim: katanya bakal ada tapi belum tau kapan ya [translates to "He said it would return but he doesn't know when."

takeshiscastlefan: Thank you so much! emoticon I hope you return soon!

So this would give me a bit of confidence that the show will return at some point, but I've heard the "returning some day in the future" answer before (see Japan and Thailand), so I'm a bit skeptical. Still a helpful response emoticon

I also got a response from Farid (who I believe is Takeshi's sidekick):

takeshiscastlefan: I love the cake! [This comment was on a picture of cake, to clarify emoticon ] Will there ever be a #takeshicastleindonesiaseason3?

faridajaasli: i hope

takeshiscastlefan: I wish the best!

So there is some possibility, but it did seem to have a bit of a negative undertone.

People who didn't respond: Fero, Poppy, goenx, Kenta, Takeshi, MNCTV email

So overall the responses were decent. I feel like they might be working on getting something together, but I'm doubtful anything else will ever happen sadly emoticon

But those are just my thoughts. What's your opinion?

Those are interesting responses but they all seemed to say roughly the same thing. I honestly think the one who said really thought you said there is going to be a new season! All we can do is keep our fingers crossed - but we may be waiting a VERY long time if they do decide to do another series.

That's true emoticon Well, for the last half-a-year I've been checking the Lido Lakes Resort & Conference location on Instagram, so you should hear it from me first if anything pops-up emoticon

I find it lousy. I think they ul return in a number of months. The series may be hugely low budget o. I find it gross. I hope it exists o. I find it chancy. I will watch it. They shall make evry episode be winners you know? I find it more exciting. I hope teacups and the hands returns. I find the games oriental seeming.

It's hard to feel more low-budget than last season. I find it lousy.

Wow, it's always cool to read this stuff, straight from the horse's mouth. Great job! emoticon Admittedly I haven't watched TCI yet.

Maybe it's more that I'm waiting until I finish my recent viewing of Takeshi's Castle before starting it, though I'll admit that I don't like all kinds of change and it would be odd trying to adapt to the original format without Craig's voice!

I thought Comedy Central would grant my wish with TCT but then they screwed that up. emoticon If they did just a few things differently (for the most part, hiring Craig/sacking their writer and restoring classic ordering, like having Knock Knock at the start) it could have been a cracking show.

Is there any chance of Challenge acquiring TCI? Perhaps Comedy Central snapped up the entire Takeshi's Castle license in the UK... emoticon

Happy you liked it emoticon

Yeah, I'm afraid of that too (well, I am now that you made me think of it emoticon), but hopefully CC won't have done it. Dang you, Comedy Central!

The Indonesian remake isn't/wasn't very great, so it'll probably never be shown in the UK anyway. But I still say: Dang you, Comedy Central!

There's zero chance of ANY broadcaster picking TCI up - it's just too small-scale, cheap and repetitive but I reckon if Keshi Heads picked this up and did it like the TCT ones from a few years back and shuffled the games around a bit so it wasn't so repetitive it would be good.

I think it could possibly be televised, but by a pretty desperate TV channel.

Before last season, there were pictures floating around of a TBS staff-member checking the set out, so we thought they were going to hit it big time - but then they just had the same five games on repeat, so no dice emoticon
