This show is one of the most successful novelties that has been added to the many brilliant Netflix series. Reportedly, the show is great for a fun pastime.
The first Sacred Games season, based on Vikram Chandra’s novel, was released in 2018. The second season came out recently – on August 15th. The exciting series, which dwelled on the powerful cliffhanger, has a lot of fans who are wondering if the Sacred Games will have season 3.
What is the series Sacred Games about?
The series talks about Sartage Singh, a nervous policeman from Mumbai who is trying to climb the career ladder, even though he is very depressed by corruption within security structures.
Singh’s life takes an unexpected and dangerous turn when one of the bandits contacts him. The gangster tells Singh that he has 25 days to save the city.
After that, the series takes Singh through a series of plot twists, during which the hero tries to save Mumbai, constantly being attacked by the omnipotent underworld.
The first season of the Sacred Games received positive reviews for the careful attitude to the novel, as well as for the addition of additional semantic layers and a variety of motives. Critics praised the technical aspects of the show.
The series has received many awards, including the News18 iReel Best Drama Award, as well as an award for Best Director and Best Editing at the Creative Academy Academy Award Ceremony.
Although the second season was not planned immediately upon the release of the first, few people had doubts that Netflix would not take into account the numerous awards of the show and would not extend it for the second season.
The first season of the sacred games was a huge success both in India and abroad. According to Netflix, the number of foreign viewers of the series was two times higher than the number of Indian.
Cliffhanger Season 2
The second season of the Sacred Games was released in India on August 15, 2019, the country’s independence day. The most active fans watched all the series in one day and began to publish spoilers on social networks.
The first season showed half of the 25 days during which Singh tried to save Mumbai. In the first episodes, we watched Singh’s investigation and the dirty past of the gangster who plays with him.
Eight episodes of the second season complemented the original plot of Vikram Chandra, and also expanded the narrative by adding new female characters.
The second season left the fans in a somewhat limbo state because the final episode ended with a powerful cliffhanger. At the end of season two, Singh discovered a nuclear bomb that was supposed to destroy the city. He was given three attempts to defuse the bomb. After the third attempt, the screen turned black. And this is the second season ended.
Will there be a 3rd season of Sacred Games?
The cliffhanger at the end of season 2 is a hint that Netflix will give the go-ahead for filming season 3. However, it must be borne in mind that the series has exhausted the material of Chandra’s original novel, so the new season (if any) will deviate from the original plot anyway. Some series have been very successful in implementing such a model – for example, the HBO series ” Big Little Lies .”
The main scriptwriter of the Sacred Games Varun Grover answered questions about the third season of Gadgets 360. Grover said that at that moment they were focused only on the current season, but also teased the audience, adding: “time will tell.”
He also commented on the fact that the authors of the show exhausted the source material, telling the Hindustan Times: “We will make our own story. If there is a continuation, we will figure out where to go next. ”
While fans are waiting for the Sacred Games to continue, they can enjoy TV shows like Luther, Narco, Clan Soprano, and Fargo.
The first two seasons of the Sacred Games came out with an interval of one year. Given this, it can be assumed that under an optimistic scenario, season 3 of the show will be released in the summer of 2020.
