After the success of the first part, which was produced in 1999, some of the series’ heroes apologized for continuing, such as Ahmed Al-Sakka, Mona Zaki, Simon, Iman, and Nashwa Mustafa, while the director excluded Athar Al-Hakim, and instead used Hala Sedqi, according to what writer Mahmoud Masoud mentioned. In his book “Myths of Drama”.

As for the third part, the writer confirms that the artist Lucy, who participated in the two parts, said: “After filming the second part, a crisis occurred between the writer Osama Anwar Okasha and the director Gamal Abdel Hamid, and I tried to bring the points of view closer together.”

The writer adds: “Others, other than Lucy, tried to reconcile Okasha and Abdul Hamid, especially since the latter said that I would not direct the third part because there were fundamental differences between me and the author, and the character “Rifai” presented by Nabil El-Halafawi was going to be the hero of the third part due to “Bishr”’s long travel to Abroad, and this was intentional so that the Upper Egypt character was not affected by the colonialism to which Egypt was subjected.”

On this day, November 27, 2000, the first episode of the second part of the series was shown, and it achieved great public success, but it was the end of Bisher Amer Abdel Zaher’s journey in Zizinia.
