Fans of CID got the biggest shock of their lives when Dayanand Shetty, who is portraying the role of Daya in the fictional crime investigative show for a long time, confirmed that CID is going off-air soon and its last episode will telecast on October 27 this year.
Daya revealed that the show was in its 21st year and if they shot for some more episodes, it would have been their 22nd year. All the cast and crew were shooting as usual when they were suddenly informed of the shooting being cancelled indefinitely due to some issues with Sony TV.
Daya also said that the whole team worked with dedication to make this show successful and they are not just co-actors but a big happy family. In fact, CID was like their second home and they are going to miss each other a lot.
The show has entertained viewers for more than 20 years and there could be nothing more upsetting or saddening for its ardent fans than its going off-air all of a sudden. Due to their emotional attachment with the show, many fans have started #SaveCID campaign on the micro-blogging site Twitter in which they are expressing their feelings and sentiments towards the show and urging Sony TV not to end it.
Here are some selected tweets:
None of us are gonna watch your damn channel if CID gets off-aired! Remember those days when you had nothing to broadcast and it was CID who established your channel! We don't care about your other damn shows, we want CID back.#saveCID @shivaajisatam @SonyLIV #CID

Plese Sony Tv don't do this
I am a 90's kid
I grew up watching CID
It's an emotion for all the kids of our era
Please rethink on your decision
My favourite actor in CID is Sr. Inspector Abhijeet
