- Netflix in a tweet finally confirmed the release date of Sacred Games 2
- A new video teaser is also out
Video streaming platform Netflix on Tuesday confirmed that the second season of Sacred Games would premiere on 15 August. In a teaser on Twitter, Netflix said "Calendar nikalo bhaiyo aur behno. #SacredGames2 ka release date ayela hai!"
We got the first look of the show this year when the first posters were released by the franchise shot on OnePlus 7 Pro. The posters captured Sacred Games characters — Sartaj Singh (played by Saif Ali Khan) and Ganesh Gaitonde (played by Nawazuddin Siddiqui). The platform also released a behind-the-scenes video that was also shot on the OnePlus 7 Pro.
Based on the voluminous novel by acclaimed writer Vikram Chandra and helmed by celebrated directors Anurag Kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwane, Sacred Games is Netflix's first locally produced original series. The action drama features actors such as Saif Ali Khan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Radhika Apte among others. The new season will also feature actors such as Kalki Koechlin and Ranvir Shorey.
In October last year, Netflix said it would stick with the team behind Indian hit show Sacred Games for a second season after an independent investigation into allegations of sexual harassment against Varun Grover and Vikas Bahl who were involved with the show.
Kashyap, who directed the first season, said in a statement this month on his Twitter account that he regretted not acting on allegations of sexual misconduct made against his partner and producer Bahl in 2015.
