Netflix Originals are all the rage right now and Sacred Games, based on Vikram Chandra’s best-selling novel of the same name, premiered earlier this year on Netflix and became an instant hit. Seeing the worldwide popularity and good reviews by critics, Netflix announced Season 2 for Sacred Games.
The news was confirmed via a video on Netflix India’s Twitter account. A chilling ‘Announcement Trailer’ was posted along with the caption: “The worst is yet to come. Sacred Games will be back for Season 2.” And it seems like the games are about to get deadlier with a new trail of betrayal, crime, passion, and a thrilling chase through Mumbai’s underbelly.

The first season of this dark thriller released earlier this year and received good views from critics and fans worldwide. The first season which had 8 episodes including cast members like Nawaz-ud-Din Siddiqui, Saif Ali Khan, Radhika Apte and others, became an instant hit. Almost all the actors gave tremendous performances in the dense plot which has only added to the greatness of the show.
“We’ve been thrilled by the response to Sacred Games from fans worldwide, and especially in India, to this high-quality production,” said Erik Barmack, VP, International Originals at Netflix. “It’s incredibly exciting for us to take the story of Sacred Games forward and open a new chapter in the series with its second season,” he added.
The second season will pick up from where it was left. Sartaj Singh (Saif Ali Khan) tries to save the city from impending doom and the deadline of 25 days while in the parallel narrative, Gaitonde’s (Nawaz) struggle to be the legendary kingpin of Mumbai goes on. The intriguing Guruji (Pankaj Tripathi), introduced in season one as Gaitonde’s third father, plays a pivotal role in unfolding a chain of events that shape the next season, revealed Netflix.
With all of this going on, Second Season of Sacred Games is highly anticipated now.
