Sacred Games is heading back to Netflix in August 2019 for season 2. Here’s what we know about the next season of Sacred Games and when it’ll be streaming on Netflix.
Season 1 of Sacred Games released on Netflix on July 6th, 2018. The police drama from India has gone down a treat with audiences in India and beyond.
In Western countries, you can enjoy the series in either dub or subtitles.
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.
Has Season 2 of Sacred Games been renewed?
Official renewal status: Renewed in September 2018
The series gained fantastic reviews plus also has gotten the approval of fans both in India and abroad. So it should be no surprise that a little over a month the series got a season 2 renewal from Netflix. The official Netflix India account was first to break the news before advising fans to stop threatening them with Bunty’s.
Sacred Games represents a push for Netflix to become more relevant in a region (India) with increasing competition for Netflix. Titles like Sacred Games will be 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.
What will happen in Sacred Games season 2?
The series will once again follow Saif Ali Khan aka Sartaj Singh who is reeling from the events of episode 8 of season 1. Sartaj raced against time to find out who the third father was and stop the impending doom of Mumbai.
We’re expecting lots of new locations where the show is headed in season 2. In particular, a large portion of this series has been filmed in Nairobi, Kenya, and South Africa too.
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 Motwane who is the showrunner for season 2 of the show has said the following in a 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.”
