Earlier reports suggested a new season was in the works but a new report from Deadline confirmed the news. It quoted Head of Originals, Prime Video India Aparna Purohit, saying that a renewal was "imminent," given the previous seasons' success. "As the plot intensifies and new characters infuse raw energy into the narrative, the stakes and the thrill go higher this season," she added.
To recall, back in February this year, Pinkvilla had reported that Sharma had already "locked" in a script and was busy with the pre-production work. The shoot was said to begin in the summer. For the unversed, the thriller series focuses on the limits that a person can cross in order to save their loved ones. R Madhavan had starred in the first season.
Two years after the inaugural season, Bachchan had continued the series with a new direction in July 2020. However, Sadh playing a police officer (Inspector Kabir Sawant) was a part of both seasons. In his web series debut, Junior Bachchan had played Dr. Avinash Sabharwal, who finds his six-year-old daughter Siya has been kidnapped and he must kill someone to get her back.
Created and produced by Abundantia Entertainment, reportedly the team has started shooting for the new season in Mumbai and New Delhi. The team is currently eyeing a 2022 release. Coming to The Big Bull star, he has the crime thriller Bob Biswas, backed by Shah Rukh Khan, awaiting release. The 45-year-old had also begun shooting for Dinesh Vijan's upcoming political comedy Dasvi earlier.
