One question which time and again kept popping up on social media during the lockdown was – ‘When is season two of Mirzapur coming?’ On Monday, much to the excitement of fans, Amazon Prime Video made the most awaited announcement. Mirzapur Season 2 will premiere on the streaming platform on October 23, 2020. The makers of the web series revealed its release date via a teaser, which hints that Mirzapur 2 is going to be bigger and better.
At the end of the first season, we saw how Munna (Divyenndu Sharma) destroyed the life of Guddu (Ali Fazal) by killing his brother Bablu (Vikrant Massey) and his wife Sweety (Shriya Pilgaonkar). In Mirzapur 2’s teaser, one can hear Guddu sharing how the world is divided into two kinds of people – alive and dead. But guess he falls in the third category – the injured. The new season will hence follow Guddu who is out to avenge the death of his loved ones.
Gurmmeet Singh and Mihir Desai directorial Mirzapur 2 is produced by Excel Media and Entertainment. It will see Pankaj Tripathi, Shweta Tripathi, Rasika Dugal, Harshita Gaur, Amit Sial, Anjum Sharma, Sheeba Chaddha, Manu Rishi Chadha and Rajesh Tailang reprising their roles. Vijay Varma, Priyanshu Painyuli and Isha Talwar will join the cast in season 2.
Talking about the return of Mirzapur, Excel Entertainment’s Ritesh Sidhwani said, “Bringing thrilling and untold stories from India’s hinterland without losing authenticity has been our biggest win. All the praise that season one of Mirzapur has received, not just in India, but across the globe, is heartening. It pushes Excel Entertainment and Amazon Prime Video to continue the momentum with the second season of the show.”
Creator Puneet Krishna said, “The love and appreciation that the show has garnered since its launch has been simply overwhelming. Taking it a notch higher, we are certain that the audiences are in for a visual treat in the sequel.” He added, “Seeing their excitement for season 2 for months made each one of us deliver a performance that matches up to the scale at which the show has now placed itself. We are thrilled to take fans to another dynamic world of Mirzapur that they have been waiting for a very long time.”
