From the dramaturgical perspective, the series will develop similarly to previous seasons. Each episode will have two or three parallel stories that will intertwine in the format of popular sitcoms.

Izet, though older, is still vital and eager to drink his raki and flirt with young women. Petty scams are still what best describe his character.
Dzebra is now 18 years old and has just enrolled in the Faculty of Medicine. He is energetic and business oriented, but also inclined to engage in petty fraud, which proves that he is from the Fazlinovic family.
