Based on the best-selling novel of the same name by Vikram Chandra, the eight-episode first series was directed and co-produced by Phantom Films’ Anurag Kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwane.

The second season will be co-directed by Kashyap and Neeraj Ghaywan, known for the 2015 film Masaan, which won a FIPRESCI Prize and a Prix de l’Avenir in Cannes’ Un Certain Regard section. Vikramaditya Motwane will be showrunner, while Varun Grover will be lead writer.

The second series of Sacred Games will begin shooting in both India and abroad this autumn. Singh will continue his relentless mission to save the city, with Nawazuddin Siddiqui returning as the notorious gangster Ganesh Gaitonde.

Netflix began streaming the first season of Sacred Games on 6 July to positive reviews. Its second original from India, the horror series Ghoul – also starring Radhika Apte – was released on 24 August.

Other Indian original series, including cricket series Selection Day and espionage thriller Bard of Blood, are set to follow them onto the US subscription video-on-demand (SVOD) platform.
