One of the most anticipated Indian web series is finally returning to our screens. Read on to know all about Mirzapur Season 2 release date and more.

The wait is finally over, Amazon Prime Video has announced the release date for Mirzapur Season 2. It hits the screens on October 23, 2020. The first season came in November 2018, so it’s been nearly a two-year-wait for the fans.

Mirzapur, an Amazon Video web series
Babloo Pandit (Vikrant Massey)

An Anurag Kashyap-esque gangster drama, ‘Mirzapur’ came replete with gunshots, blood and gore, and abuses used as punctuation. With this being a refreshing cocktail to watch, without any interference from the censors, this Amazon production rode high on performances. Pankaj Tripathi, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Rasika DugalVikrant Massey, Ali Fazal — each actor hit the nail (or gunshot) on the head. While the storyline may have been predictable at times, crisp dialogues and screenplay made it a thrilling ride to be on nonetheless.

Season 1 had Pankaj Tripathi play Kaleen Bhaiya, a carpet exporter and local don. While his son, Munna (Divyendu Sharma) is hungry to get his hands on his family’s empire, he hits a roadblock with his father’s support for two brothers working under him–Guddu and Bablu Pandit, played by Ali Fazal and Vikrant Massey, respectively. Sweety Gupta (Shriya Pilgaonkar) and Gajgamini Gupta (Shweta Tripathi) are sisters, and the former gets married to Guddu in the series.

Beena (Rasika Dugal) is married to Kaleen Bhaiya and her journey of repression and possible personal uprising as hinted in the last scenes when she picks up a gun. The finale also showed Sweety and Bablu being killed at a wedding hijacked by Munna, and a likely emergence of violence in the otherwise non-violent characters until then. Mirzapur Season 2 will follow from that, and we can surely expect more gunshots and grit from this series that minces no words–or scenes.
