The streaming giant took to Twitter to share the promotional video for the second season, where a range of voice-overs, starting from that of Ganesh Gaitonte (Nawazuddin Siddiqui) to that of Sartaj Singh (Saif Ali Khan) are heard.

Whereas the first season introduced the two 'fathers' of Gaitonde, the third 'father', played by Pankaj Tripathi, will have a pivotal role in the second one.

As per an Indian Express report, the show is going to be shot in India as well as some foreign locations. Meanwhile, Anurag Kashyap will again don the director's hat for Nawazuddin’s track, and Masaan director Neeraj Ghaywan will take over from Vikramaditya Motwane to direct Sartaj Singh’s portions.

However, Vikramaditya will continue in the role of being the showrunner and Varun Grover will be the lead writer.

Sacred Games, based on Vikram Chandra’s novel of the same name,  was the first original series from Netflix India, followed by the horror miniseries Ghoul, starring Radhika Apte in the lead.
