In this article, we will discuss everything we know about the new season of “Mirzapur” including its Air Date and storyline and cast!
“Mirzapur” was first released in 2018 and ever since made an impression with its fans, leaving them waiting patiently for a second season for the past two years. “Mirzapur” is an Indian crime thriller web series and is produced by Excel Entertainment. The series revolves around drugs, guns, and all that’s seen as unlawful with depictions of putrescence, governance, and the rule of the mafia. It shows rivalry at its best and the extreme crime that prevails in Uttar Pradesh in the Purvanchal region. The first season consisted of a total of nine episodes.
The series is directed by Karan Anshuman and Gurmmeet Singh, and the runtime of each episode is 44 to 53 minutes. After “Inside Edge” and “Breathe,” “Mirzapur” is Amazon Prime Video’s third fiction Indian Original. The series stands at an 8.5/10 on IMDb, and with many people wondering whether the series is based on a real story, no, it is not based on any true story. However, some of the characters and some of the stories are inspired by true events. With a star-studded cast of brilliant actors and a storyline that brings to life the everyday struggles of everyday people with the involvement of gangs and the Indian mafia, this show is sure to keep you glued to the screen from the very first episode. Let’s see what the show is all about and what the second season is expected to bring to the screen.
Trailer And Storyline
In some good news, the trailer for the second season of “Mirzapur” has been released officially. From the trailer, we can see that Ali Fazal’s character is on his way to get revenge from Kaleen Bhaiya and his son. The entire trailer looks very extreme and seems like the next season is sure to be action-filled and nothing less. The second season is expected to show the Tripathi Pandits’ battle for power, while the two households will need to control the region. The Tripathi’s are considered the Bahubalis of Mirzapur, and the entire family is eager for electricity. Their entire kingdom is based on medication pirating and firearm.

The basic storyline of the entire series is about Akhandanand Tripathi, who made a fortune exporting carpets and became a mafia boss in the process. His son is Munna, who is an unworthy and power-hungry heir to his father’s empire and stops at nothing to carry forward his father’s legacy.
The first season came to an end with Munna Tripathi entering a wedding. The second season is sure to continue with Guddu avenging his late brother and murdering the younger of the two brothers also. In the last episode of the first season, we see that Golu wins the election, and Guddu shows side effects after taking steroids. Sweety is pregnant, and Munna looks everywhere for the brothers to kill them. At the same time, the police are beating up the Eunuchs to get information on who the brothers work for. Munna kills Sweety at the wedding, and Bablu injures Golu and Guddu. Tripathi’s father learns about the relationship between Beena and Raja and blackmails Beena to have sex with him and later to cut off Raja’s penis. Sharad is shown shaving his head and also remembering how his father wanted Mirzapur.
Cast And Characters
The cast is quite enticing as they are a set of brilliant actors that simply add significantly to the charm of the show. Ali Fazal plays the role of Govind “Guddu” Pandit, Vikrant Massey is seen as Vinay “Bablu” Pandit, Pankaj Tripathi as Akhandanand “Kaleen” Tripathi, Divyendu Sharma as Phoolchand “Munna” Tripathi, Shriya Pilgaonkar plays the role of Sweety Gupta (Guudu’s wife), Rasika Dugal as Beena Tripathi (Munna’s stepmother and Kaleen Bhaiya’s second wife), Kulbhushan Kharbanda as Satyanand Tripathi (Kaleen Bhaiya’s father and Munna’s grandfather), Rajesh Tailang as Ramakant Pandit (Guddu’s Father), Shweta Tripathi as Gajgamini “Golu” Gupta, are some of the main characters among many other significant cast members of the web series “Mirzapur.”
Other names include- Shubrajyoti Bharat, Shahnawaz Pradhan, Amit Sial, Shaji Chaudhary, Sheeba Chaddha, Prashansa Sharma, Harshita Gaur, Abhishek Banerjee, Manu Rishi, Mukesh Bhatt, Anjum Sharma, Pramod Pathak, Anil George, Abutalha, Santosh Bhokre, and Aasif Khan.
Most of these main characters are expected to make a return for season 2 of the series, which is all set to release later in 2020. The first season was received well by most critics and so the second season is expected to have similar reception. While some of the critics said the series was a little too violent, that just seems like it’s something that can’t be helped as the story in itself is one full of violence which might definitely be too much for some to handle, with all the gore and the gruesome details to it.
The second season of Mirzapur is all set to release on November 25th, 2020 as the show is said to have already finished production and shooting, its only a matter of time before it’s release. It seems as though Amazon has delayed the release a little, making a tactical decision as they already have a couple of shows lined up before the release of this specific one, thus giving its audience ample time to enjoy all the various shows.
The first season of the series was released on November 16th, 2018, and after two entire years, it seems like they are following much the same pattern for the second season also. The trailer that has been released already for season 2 shows extreme action, and so we can expect the next season to have quite an exciting story
