Some viewers feel that the show’s depiction of people of color and different races somewhat continues to be problematic as Asian Women are always reduced to the status of quiet wives to British men.

The 62 seasons of Coronation Street released in 2021 released fairly average reviews and ratings where a lot of people felt that the new season had not much to offer when it came to newer storylines or characters. While in the show’s defense when a soap opera has been running for the past 62 seasons, then a few patterns are bound to get repeated when it comes to characters and the plot.
Coronation Street Cast
As we already know, Coronation Street follows the lives of new families in all its new seasons and episodes, which means there is no fixed cast over the past 62 seasons of Coronation Street. Most of the actors cast in the episodes can be seen for a very brief and short duration and there is a very rare chance they can be seen consecutively because the format of the show does not allow that.
If we talk about actors who have made multiple appearances over the span of 62 seasons then there are a few prominent actors on the list to do so. Actor William Roache who plays the character Ken Barlow has made multiple appearances on Coronation Street. His first appearance was in the year 1960 and the most recent appearance happens to be in the 62nd season in November 2021. Apart from him, actors like Elleen Derbyshire who plays the role of Emily Bishop made her first appearance in the year 1961 and continued to make another appearance on the 60th season of Coronation Street in the year 2019.
