Sacred Games season 2 Netflix release date, cast, trailer, plot

When will Sacred Games season 2 be released?

Season two of Sacred Games hasn’t yet got a release date from Netflix.

However, filming is scheduled to be starting in autumn this year.

Sacred Games season one dropped on Netflix in July, so it’s likely that the second run will be released in summer 2019.

Netflix will again be dropping all episode in one go with season two expected to have another eight episodes.

Netflix has confirmed that its first Indian Original series Sacred Games is going to be returning for a follow up.

In a statement from Erik Barmack, the vice president of International Netflix Originals said: “We’ve been thrilled by the response to Sacred Games from fans worldwide, and especially in India, to this high-quality production.”

He added the Deadline: “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.”

Who is in the cast of Sacred Games season 2?

The main cast of Sacred Games will be reprising their roles with Saif Ali Khan back as police detective Sartaj Singh,

While Nawazuddin Siddiqui will be back as prolific Mumbai kingpin Ganesh Gaitonde.

Also back in the frame will be Pankaj Tripathi as Khanna Guru Ji, who played a small role in the first run but is set to become a key player in the follow-up.

It’s uncertain if Radhika Apte will be back as Anjali Mathur and if Kubra Sait will return as Kukoo after their characters met a sticky end in the first instalment.

However, given the multiple timelines, there’s nothing to suggest that we could see more flashbacks.

Varun Grover will continue as the principal writer on the show and Vikramaditya Motwane will be back as showrunner.


What will happen in Sacred Games season 2?

Sacred Games has been adapted from Vikram Chandra’s sprawling 1,000-page novel of the same name and season two will simply tell the next quarter of the story.

The first season ended with Sartaj discovering the underground bunker which suggested that Mumbai was going to be hit by a huge chemical or nuclear attack.

So the second run will see him continuing to try to stop the conspiracy and save the city’s inhabitants.

Fans will also see more of Gaintonde and his rise to power after his release from prison in season one.

There will be a development in the role of TV priest Guru Ji and his role in the attack.

According to actor Tripathi: “Guruji is a larger-than-life part and will become the most sought-after character in the series.”

He added to Mid-day: “My character becomes as big as Gaitonde.”


Is there a trailer for Sacred Games season 2?

Not yet but along with the statement, Netflix India shared a creepy season two announcement video.

The video was simply footage of the mandala from the season one finale being lifted up before Sacred Games season two appeared on the screen.

Accompanying the video was the chilling voice of gangster Gaitonde’s voice asking: “Do you believe in God?”

Soundbites from other characters including Sartaj, Kukoo and Anjali could also be heard in the video.

The video was captioned: “The worst is yet to come. Sacred Games will be back for Season 2.”
