When we talk about a series that set on foot the Amazon Prime Video’s credibility, it is undeniably Mirzapur.
The series released on 16 October 2018, and robust was its popularity, which led to its being released in not just Hindi but also Tamil and Telugu.
Premise and Reception:
The series bravely portrayed the ravaging goons and their thirst for power and money; the brutality, the betrayals, and the dirty politics have been sufficiently embedded in this action crime thriller.
Season 2 of the series was released on 23 October 2020 and immediately became a buzzed hit.
Season 2 ended at a significant dilemma giving us the possibility for the third season while providing an insight into it.
Season 3 expected Release:
The first news shattered about season 3 on 12 November 2020, when the makers decided to renew the third season.
That’s what has been keeping the fans pumped up. The series is alone a trendsetter and did set the bars high for the web series with its unique writing style and blunt but fine execution.
Additional details :
In an interview, Ali Faizl confessed how the COVID constraints delayed the 3rd season and were a big reason hampering the making.
However, he stated that once they get the appropriate response on the 2nd season, only then will they decide about the third season, which is far-fetched since season 2 has been a hit.
Season 3 of Mirzapur features Pankaj Tripathi, Shweta Tripathi, Divyendu Sharma, Ali Fazal, Vikrant Massey, Shriya Pilgaonkar, Rasika Dugal, Harshita Gaur, and Kulbhushan Kharbanda.
Apart from Massey and Pilgaonkar, new faces comprising Vijay Varma, Isha Talwar, Lilliput, Anjum Sharma, Priyanshu Painyuli, Anangsha Biswas, and Neha Sargam will be seen entertaining the audience.
