Season 2 of Sacred Games will be available on Netflix starting in August 2019. Here’s what we know about the next season of Sacred Games and when it’ll be streaming on Netflix.
Netflix released Season 1 of Sacred Games on July 6, 2018. This Indian police drama has been a hit with viewers across the globe.
You can watch the series either in dub or subtitles in Western countries.
The story of betrayal, glamour, and grit comes from the acclaimed Indian cast and directors behind the series which includes names such as Saif Ali Khan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Radhika Apte starring with Anurag Kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwane directing.
Status of official renewal: Renewed in September 2018.
It received great reviews and was well-received by fans in India as well as abroad. It's not surprising that the show received a second season renewal from Netflix in just over a month. The official Netflix India account was first to break the news before advising fans to stop threatening them with Bunty’s.
Sacred Games is a move by Netflix for greater relevance in a country (India), where there's increasing competition for Netflix. Titles such as Sacred Games are key to their success. They’ve made significant strides so far but Sacred Games is the biggest series to come from India so far.
Season 2’s production began in November 2018 with filming finishing in February 2019.
Saif Ali Khan, aka Sartaj Sing will be back in the series. He is still reeling from episode 8. Sartaj ran against the clock to discover who the third father is and stop Mumbai's impending doom.
We’re expecting lots of new locations where the show is headed in season 2. A large part of the series was filmed in Nairobi and South Africa.
You can expect things to ramp up significantly with VFX this season 2 too with Samridhi Bhati saying “Yes the Sacred Games 2 is going to have a fair amount of VFX and we are working on it.”
Vikramaditya Mtwane, the showrunner of season 2, has released the following press release.
“We’re extremely excited to finally be able to share with the fans of Sacred Games what they’ve all been waiting for with bated breath – the date of its release on Netflix! This season is bigger, more compelling, and totally unexpected. Be prepared to discover a different side to each character as we take the audience on a tremendous journey, and address questions left unanswered last season.”
In May 2019, the cast was announced with confirmations about who would be returning to the show.
Season 2 will see the addition of Shahid Khan and Batya Ableman, who will both be played in season 2. Ranvir Shorey will play Shahid Khan.
Let’s start off with the biggest news. On August 15, 2019, the second season of Sacred Games worldwide will release on Netflix. Updated with the new release date, Netflix's official page has not yet been updated.
