The show’s massive fandom and the viewers’ magnitude of love towards the new season were seen through reactions on social media within days of its release, and we are truly humbled by the response.”

“Over the last two years, viewers continued to engage with the immersive universe of Mirzapur and its characters. The love that they have showered on the show for this season has been unprecedented,” Purohit said in a statement.

The second season roped in Vijay Varma, Priyanshu Painyuli, and Isha Talwar to the ensemble cast comprising Pankaj Tripathi, Ali Fazal, Divyenndu, Shweta Tripathi, Rasika Dugal  Harshita Shekhar Gaur, Amit Sial, Anjum Sharma, Sheeba Chaddha, Manu Rishi Chadha, and Rajesh Tailang.

Munna (Divyenndu) and Guddu’s (Ali Fazal) fight to take over Mirzapur intensified in the second season with power, politics and revenge coming to a head even as the nexus between politics and criminals prevails.
