Ali Fazal-Pankaj Tripathi starrer ‘Mirzapur’ renewed for season 2
‘Mirzapur’ has been renewed for season two after seeing the first season’s overwhelming performance with viewers. All episodes of ‘Mirzapur’ season one did fantastic business all over and with the new season, the makers are thinking of bigger things.
Within two months of premiering the first season of ‘Mirzapur’, the makers have announced that they have greenlit the second season of the show that has been loved by audiences and critics alike. ‘Mirzapur’ season two will depict the story of the violent world of ‘Mirzapur’ which, when coupled with greed for power, changes people and asks for sacrifices. The show will go into production this year.
‘Mirzapur’ is an amped-up portrayal of India’s heartland and youth — a world replete with drugs, guns and lawlessness, where caste, power, egos and tempers intersect and violence is the only way of life.
Farhan Akhtar, Excel Media & Entertainment, said, “It is exciting to see that global audiences are responding well to the kind of content we are creating. It started with ‘Inside Edge’ being nominated for an International Emmy and now ‘Mirzapur’ being watched & loved across India and globally; we are glad that both shows have been renewed for the next season giving us another chance to showcase Indian stories on a global stage.”
Ritesh Sidhwani, Excel Media and Entertainment, said, “Mirzapur has been our dream project and to quickly follow the first season with a season two announcement underlines our efforts to create best-in-class content for our online global audiences. The show gave us an opportunity to challenge ourselves and explore new subjects and territories. Now, we look forward to taking our story to another level of cinematic experience in the next season.”
