With the onset of the month of October, the last quarter of this year has begun. TRP’s are flying left and right, with popular TV shows taking over prime time slots like Big Boss and Kaun Banega Crorepati. Other buzz around the television industry includes the news of a reboot for Kasauty Zindagi ki and the season 6 of the famous talk show, Koffee with Karan. But introduction of something new always means that we have to bid goodbye to the old ones.
Here are 10 TV shows, that will come to a conclusion and go off air, by the end of October 2018.

Ishqbaaz is a popular TV show that has entertained the audience for well over two years. Although there have been hoaxes in the past, according to recent industry insider sources, the show is set to go off air by November 2018.
