Paatal Lok is returning! "Hathi Ram faces grave mortal dangers in a new pursuit that takes him back to the netherworld," is how Amazon Prime Video describes the second season.

The Family Man is indeed getting a season three. Stellar actor Manoj Bajpayee will reprise his character of Srikant Tiwari and Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK are set to return as the show creators. The end credits of the second season had hinted that the next edition will be set in a post-pandemic world and the antagonist this time might be a Chinese organization.
After two successful shows, Mirzapur will be back with a third season. Currently, the pre-production is underway and the shooting schedule will start soon. The makers this time have kept the treatment of the show less violent and harsh as the authors faced legal issues for the earlier two seasons. It's said that the third part of Mirzapur will hit Prime this October.
Last year, Neena Gupta had informed Panchayat will be returning for a second season, but no update was shared since then. Recently, Prime renewed the Deepak Kumar Mishra-directorial for the next part and we will again see Gupta as Pradhan Manju Devi and Jitendra Kumar as Abhishek Tripathi, Panchayat Secretary.
