To get a sense of what awaits viewers in the season premiere, take a read through CBC’s official description below and the network’s official trailer for the new seasons of its winter programs, for a peak at what is in store.
Amaar searches for the perfect way to propose to Rayyan after getting Yasir’s permission to marry his daughter. Sarah volunteers to help but soon what is supposed to be the most magical night ever becomes a series of comic misfires. Meanwhile, when Thorne finds the town has turned on him after his bad behaviour toward the Muslims, he tries to find a new way to fit in.”
What are your thoughts on the description and trailer?How do you think the upcoming storylines which were highlighted, will play out?Which storyline are you the most excited to see explored?
Actress Sitara Hewitt has been leading a distinguished career. Having been a dancer, host, model and an actor, the delightful actress has now been bringing her talents to CBC’s hit sitcom, Little Mosque on the Prairie, as the devout, Rayyan Hamoudi.
With the actress being kind enough to participate in an interview with us and Little Mosque on the Prairie approaching its fifth season for January 2011, we took the opportunity to discuss her character and the series in general. In particular, we discuss how she connects with the character of Rayaan, her view on how the character has developed over the course of the series, what is in store for the fifth season of Little Mosque on the Prairie and much more.
1.Your mother’s side of the family has an Islamic background and you spent a few years as a child in the Himalayan mountains of Pakistan. How has this part of your background helped you relate to your character and overcome some of the challenges in portraying Rayyan?
Staying in the Himalayan villages with my mother while she did her PhD and studied the people’s lives for her book was an incredible experience. I met some of the most generous, kind people who live in complete synchronicity with nature – we could learn a lot from them. They were all devout Muslims. I learned a lot about how and why women cover their heads, and a great deal about modesty and devotion. And I learned to be very comfortable in a ‘Chador’ or Hijab!
2. How do you think Rayyan has developed over the course of the series?
Rayyan has grown up over the years. She started off as more naive, then after an engagement that didn’t work out she became more focused on her career and being a good person for herself, and not for a man. While she remains quirky and sarcastic, she has also become less immature, and more compassionate and relaxed. As we all do as we grow.
3. In last year’s season finale, Rayaan and Amaar finally professed their love for each other. What was your reaction when you found out about this storyline and why do you they think they waited so long?
I was delighted. It just felt right. . and I think they waited so long so that viewers would enjoy the anticipation. (smile)
4. Can you please give us an idea as to what story lines and surprises are in store for the fifth season of Little Mosque on the Prairie, both in terms of the series in general and for Rayyan?
Mmmm, well I can’t say much though I’d love to. Rayyan and Amaar take the next step and getting to know each other in a dynamic (with chaperones hehe) that they both never dreamed that would occur. It’s not always a smooth ride though . . . Oh, and Thorne is a lot nicer and human. Two favorite characters make a surprise return as well. It’s a really nice season.
5. Do you have a message for fans of the series, which you would like to convey?
Thank you for giving this show a chance, and for being so loyal. It’s a concept that has never been done before, and though we may not please everyone we truly love making this show, and hope you all continue to enjoy it.

After several weeks of waiting, an official indication regarding Little Mosque on the Prairie’s future has been released. Indeed the series has been renewed for a fifth season, reports TV. Guide.ca.
Although CBC will not provide an official statement regarding the program’s renewal until the end of the month, the production for the upcoming season commenced last week.The news will indeed be a relief for many members of the fandom who were concerned about the program’s continuity after it was revealed that the series’ viewership had drastically decreased to less than 400,000 viewers.
The fifth season will consist of 13 episodes, the first of which will debut in January 2011. Readers should note that the exciting fifth season will feature all of the cast members who were present in the series’ inaugural season , including Carlo Rota[ Yassir Hamoudi], who was absent in the final half of the previous fourth season due to alternate professional commitments as well as Derek McGrath[ Reverend McGee] who was not apart of the cast during the fourth season.Rota will appear in only a handful of episodes throughout the season as he continues to have alternate commitments while McGrath will return for various episodes in the second half of the impending season.
As far as storylines are concerned, the following season will have a central focus on Ammar [ Zaib Shaikh] and Rayaan”s [ Sitara Hewitt] developing relationship since the two confessed their love for each other in the season 4 finale. Executive producer , Marry Darling commented on the challenges brought forth in presenting this storyline indicating that “Once love is professed, the whole chaperoning is taken to a new level. It’s been a real kick for our writers to not only figure out how to keep characters apart but to keep them from touching each other.”
Brandon Firla’[Reverend William Thorne] will also continue to be apart of the main cast during the upcoming season. According to Darling, his character will face challenges as he must now try to build a more respectable image and form positive relationships within the community.”He got his comeuppance at the end of last season and this year he’s dealing with that, trying to rebuild and find his real legs in Mercy. He’s trying to change but has some ingrained habits that make that hard”, says Darling.
