Netflix India Original Series 'Sacred Games' To Have As Many As 4 Seasons
The runaway success of Netflix India Original Sacred Games, starring Saif Ali Khan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Radhika Apte in significant roles, has proved one thing quite emphatically that if the makers have quality content to offer, there is a huge audience to consume that, no matter whether it is shown on a gigantic cinema screens, television sets or something as small as a mobile screen. Sacred Games, which premiered on 6th July on the streaming media giant, has been hailed as one of the best digital series to have appeared on such video streaming platforms of late. The icing on the cake is that appreciation and adulation coming its way have not stopped yet, but talks about Sacred Games Season 2 have already gained momentum.
Sacred Games, as we all know, is an adaptation of Indian author Vikram Chandra’s popular novel of the same name. The novel spreads across 1,000 pages and the first season of the series has covered only the first quarter of it, which means there is a strong possibility that the makers would soon drop season 2. One important thing to note here is that if the makers have decided to focus on only a quarter at a time and to complete the screen adaption of the novel, we can expect four seasons of the series in near future.
The success of the first season has helped Netflix gain footing in the Indian market and by bankrolling the next installments of the series one by one, it will try to strengthen its position further. Even the top leadership at Netflix confirms that their plans to spread their roots in the Indian market are exhaustive. Erik Barmack, vice-president of international originals at Netflix said, “India is seeing the biggest and fastest investment in content for any country we have launched in.”
Now the main question is: when will Sacred Games Season 2 will hit Netflix screens in India? The makers are yet to take a call on as to when they want the second season to arrive. The production would begin only after the heads at Netflix reach any decision. However, if male lead Saif Ali Khan’s words are to be believed, Sacred Games Season 2 begins rolling in September this year.
