Raj and DK in a statement said, "The Family Man has become a global sensation and we couldn’t be happier associating with Amazon Prime Video to make this happen! While we hoped that audiences would like and relate to the show, what has truly overwhelmed us is the magnitude of love we received within days of the release. Our pan-Indian cast has also been getting amazing appreciation from audiences across the country. We are thrilled that the quality of content and performances are truly breaking down preexisting walls within various film industries in India. We are delighted to announce that together with Amazon Prime Video, we are coming back with a new season that promises more edge-of-the-seat drama and thrill – the plot will thicken!"
Akkineni said that the character she will play on The Family Man Season 2 is "diametrically different" from anything she has worked in.
