Thirty-three years after it was rested, the longest ever running drama on Nigerian television The Village Headmaster is scheduled for a return in April.

Starring old and new faces, the reincarnated series will air on Nigerian Television Authority (NTA) network in collaboration with Wale Adenuga Productions.

A trailer uploaded on YouTube shows that Dejumo Lewis returns in his role as Oloja (King) of Oja.

Also returning are Ibidun Allison as Amebo, Dan Imoudu as Dagbolu, Dele Osawe as Teacher Fadele, Kate Adepegba (Folake), Lara Akinsola (Doyin) and Melville Obriango (Teacher Oghene).

Igbere TV reports that Yemi Shodimu who had a cameo role as a kid actor in the old series takes on a new and bigger role as Dr Lekan.

Joining the cast are Jide Kosoko as Chief Eleyinmi, a role formerly played by the late Oba Funso Adeolu.

Others new faces include Rachael Oniga, Tega Abaga, Jide Alabi, Mr Latin, Kristy Imanlihen, Rykardo Agbor, Ronke Oshodi-Oke, Mide Martins, Abubakar Garba and Omo Ibadan.

Chris Iheuwa takes on the role of Headmaster, which was played at different times in the past by Femi Robinson, Ted Mukoro and Justus Esiri.

Created by Ambassador Segun Olusola, The Village Headmaster started as a radio programme in 1958.

It ran as a TV series from 1968 until it was rested in 1988 on NTA.

A short-lived revival as The New Village Headmaster ended in 1991.

Speaking in a February 2013 interview with the Nigerian Tribune, Tunde Oloyede, who produced 364 episodes of the series, said: “Before the Ambassador (Olusola) died, we had been working on bringing back The Village Headmaster in three possible formats. On film, on stage, and back to television.”

Olusola died in June 2012 while Oloyede died in December 2017.

Nawa o, why are they resurrecting dead series instead of finding a way to do new ones with better storylines and production?

This ain't brilliant.......

Who watches NTA? it will be a failure if it will be aired only NTA, the channel is nothing but less appealing to Nigerians over the years.

Waste of time and resources.

There was a time when people watched local TV alot, that was because satellite TVs weren't vogue back then. Shows like this gained alot of audience. I don't think this show will survive today's world.

Because NTA is not funded well

We could improve funding for NTA by doing what the British do for the BBC...tv licensing fees.
