Sacred Games Season 2: Will Netflix Renew and Release Date

Sacred Games – Netflix

Sacred Games massive new Indian drama is now out in the open with all eight episodes now streaming worldwide. Will the series be getting a second season and when can we expect it to land on Netflix? Here’s what we know.

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 movie. These include Saif Ali Khan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Radhika Apte starring with Anurag Kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwane directing.

Production for the movie only began at the beginning of the year and released around the world on July 6th, 2018. That suggests a fast turnaround should another series come to fruition.

Has Season 2 of Sacred Games been renewed?

Official renewal status: Not yet renewed (last updated: 07/12/2018)

Sadly, Netflix didn’t give a pre-emptive thumbs up to the series when it landed in July. This is normal for big budget shows though so don’t be worried about the series future just yet.

As we talked about above, the series did incredibly well with critics and fans alike. It gained fantastic reviews plus also has gotten the approval of fans both in India and abroad.

Sacred Games represents a push for Netflix to become more relevant in a region with increasing competition for Netflix. Titles like Sacred Games will be key to their success and therefore means we strongly think that Sacred Games will be coming to Netflix for a second season.

When will season 2 of Sacred Games be on Netflix?

As we mentioned above, the turnaround time for season 1 of Sacred Games was impressive although a little more conceivable given there were only eight episodes. Assuming that the show gets renewed within the next couple of months (which we’re fully expecting it to) we’ll be getting a new season in 2019.

If we had to be any more specific at this point, we’d say a summer release is most likely in 2019.

In the meantime, Netflix is also releasing another massive Indian series in the form of Ghoul.
