‘Mirzapur’ is Amazon Prime’s third Indian original series after ‘Inside Edge’ and ‘Breathe.’ The crime thriller follows the gang wars and rivalries among various mafia dons in the titular region. It is primarily created to depict the violence, gunfights, drug scandals, and bloodbath – a common occurrence in the Purvanchal area of Uttar Pradesh, India. Although the first season of ‘Mirzapur’ garnered mixed reviews from critics, it progressed to become a hit among viewers. As a result, it was renewed for a follow-up edition. And here is everything you need to know about ‘Mirzapur’ season 2!
Mirzapur Season 2 Release Date
‘Mirzapur’ season 1 premiered on November 16, 2018, on Amazon Prime. It consists of nine episodes. Soon after, the show was recommissioned for its second outing. After a gap of nearly two years, ‘Mirzapur’ season 2 is slated to release on October 23, 2020, on Amazon Prime. The second outing comprises nine episodes, just like its predecessor.
Mirzapur Season 2 Cast: Who can be in it?
Leading the cast in ‘Mirzapur’ season 1 is Pankaj Tripathi as Akhandanand Tripathi aka Kaleen Bhaiya ( the uncrowned king of Mirzapur), Ali Fazal as Govind Pandit aka Guddu, Vikrant Massey as Vinay Pandit aka Bablu, Divyendu Sharma as Phoolchand Tripathi aka Munna Bhaiya (Kaleen Bhaiya’s son), Shriya Pilgaonkar as Sweety Gupta, and Shweta Tripathi as Gajgamini Gupta aka Golu. While Bablu and Guddu are brothers, Sweety is married to Guddu and is Golu’s sister. Since Sweety and Bablu are gunned down by Munna in the season 1 finale, they will not make a comeback in season 2.
The rest of the lead cast will make their respective returns.

Mirzapur Season 2 Plot: What can it be About?
The first outing of ‘Mirzapur’ ends on a tragic note, with Bablu and Sweety being shot dead by Munna in the middle of a wedding. Guddu is severely injured, but he survives, and in season 2, he is out to avenge the death of his wife and brother – by taking up arms against the Tripathi clan. He is joined by Golu, who was previously not a supporter of violence in any form. But seeing Bablu and her sister die before her eyes, she decides to team up with Guddu to take down Kaleen and Munna.
However, Guddu faces a major threat from Sharad, Rati Shankar’s son, after he kills off Sharad’s father in season 1. Munna might have to deal with his father’s fury for his failure to take control of Mirzapur. As outlined by Prime, the synopsis of season 2 goes as follows: “They say that revenge is a dish best served cold. Mirzapur is a dream, and it shall come true. The wait is finally over! A whole new season full of thrill, suspense, action, and drama.”
