Things are about to get exciting as fan favourite Sacred Games is all set to return with an intriguing Season 2 later this year! The first eight episodes received rave reviews worldwide, and left audiences craving for more. Now, Netflix has officially clocked the countdown to Season 2, with the first look of the return of its much-loved series, which became an audience favourite within just a week of its launch last year. 

While season 1 saw the departure of many of our favourites, Season 2 will witness Kalki Koechlin as Batya, and Ranvir Shorey as Shahid Khan, joining the Games in prominent roles. The brand-new season promises a new trail of friendship, betrayal, crime, passion, and a thrilling chase through Mumbai's underbelly with these new characters.

The second season picks up with Sartaj Singh (Saif Ali Khan) pursuing his relentless quest to save the city, and Ganesh Gaitonde (Nawazuddin Siddiqui) facing bigger challenges to retain his position as the legendary kingpin of Mumbai. The intriguing Guruji (Pankaj Tripathi), introduced in Season 1 as Gaitonde's third father, plays a pivotal role in unfolding a chain of events that shape the season.
