Netflix has confirmed that it’s first Indian original series SACRED GAMES is going to returning for a follow-up.

Who is in the cast of Sacred Games season 2?
The main cast of Sacred Games season 2 will be reprising their roles with Saif Ali Khan as police detective Sartaj Singh. While Nawazuddin Siddiqui will be in the role of prolific Mumbai kingpin Ganesh Gaitonde. Also back in the frame will be Pankaj Tripathi as Khanna Guruji, who played a small role in the first run but is set to become a key player in the sacred games season 2.
It’s uncertain that if Radhika Apte will return as Anjali Mathur and whether Kubra Sait will return as Kukoo as their characters met a sticky end in the first season of the sacred games season 2.
However given multiple timelines, there is nothing to suggest that we could get to see more flashbacks.
Varun Grover will continue to be the principal writer in the show and Vikramaditya Motwane will be back as showrunner.
What will happen in Sacred Games season 2?
Sacred games have been adapted from Vikram Chandra’s amazing 1000 page novel of the same name and sacred games season two will simply tell the other quarter of the story.
The sacred games first season ended with Sartaj discovering that Mumbai is going to be hit by a huge chemical and nuclear attack. So it’s likely that in another season we will see him try to stop the conspiracy and save the city’s citizens.
Fans will get to see more of Gaitonde and his rise to power after his release from prison in sacred games season 1.
There will be an upgrade in the role of tv priest Guruji and his role in the attack. According to actor Tripathi: “My role will become as big as Gaitonde. Guruji is a larger-than-life part and will become the most sought character in the sacred games season 2.”
Is there a trailer for Sacred Games season 2?
Not yet but along with the statement, Netflix India shared a creepy sacred games season 2 announcement video. The video was simply the footage of mandala from sacred games season one finale being lifted up before ‘Sacred Games season 2’ appeared on the screen. Accompanying the video is the chilling voice of Gaitonde asking “Do you believe in God?”.
Sound bites of other characters including Sartaj, Kukoo, and Anjali can be heard in the video.
The video was captioned “the worst is yet to come. Sacred Games will be back for season 2”.
Tripathi holds the clue as Kalki Koechlin and Ranvir Shorey joins the cast
Sacred games season 2’s Gaitonde track will be helmed by Anurag Kashyap while Neeraj Ghaywan will direct Sartaj’s story. Based on Vikram Chandra’s book of the same name, the second season of Sacred Games will premiere later this year.
The makers of popular Netflix series sacred games have released a new video and it showed Kalki Koechlin and Ranveer Shorey as the part of the cast. Directed by Neeraj Ghaywan and Anurag Kashyap, the show stars Saif Ali Khan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui in lead roles.
As per an official release “The brand new season promises a new trail of friendship, betrayal, passion, crime and a thrilling chase through Mumbai’s underbelly with new characters.
The video opens with the question “iss khel ka baap kon h?” It goes onto show Saif, Nawaz, Kalki, Ranveer and Pankaj in that sequence. While everyone stands on the side of the frame with the thematic mandala design in the center, Pankaj sits confidently in the center, with the design of mandala behind his back.
The shooting of the sacred games second season is done in Cape Town. Mombasa and Johannesburg which is tentatively scheduled to air in a few months. However, the most interesting part will be to see Gaitonde’s mentor. Guruji who was shown as Gaitonde’s third father in the first season. He will play a pivotal role in unfolding a mystery.
Is Gaitonde really dead in Sacred Games?
Along with questions over renewal. Fans have been speculating whether Ganesh Gaitonde is really dead and if he will be back in sacred games season two or not.
In episode one of the show, Gaitonde is telling his story. When police barged into his hideout, causing the gangster to commit suicide by shooting himself in the head.
The series then plays out in flashback where Gaitonde seems to narrate the story from behind the graves. Although this seems the definite end of the character. What he says to Sartaz seems a bit confusing. In an exchange between police officers and Gaitonde, the latter describes himself as ‘Ashwathhama’ or immortal. He says to Sartaz “I told you, I’m Ashwathhama, I’m not going to die until this game is over”.
Ashwathhama is a character from Mahabharata cursed with immortality for 3000 years. Could this mean the character is due to return back to life in the sacred games season 2.
However one of the fans of this show has explained how he could narrate the series and still be dead.
They wrote ‘this is posthumous narration where the character is dead but still narrates and talk with the audience’.
The most famous modern example of this is in 1999 film American Beauty. In which Lester Burnham narrated the film despite being dead.
The fans will get the answer to all their questions in the upcoming sacred games season 2.
