Amazon Prime Video’s ‘Mirzapur’ is, in short, a story of a bloodbath. The crime drama is set in the titular region of Uttar Pradesh, India, where several warring clans engage in gang wars to secure their place on the power ladder. Its first season ends on a fatal shootout at a wedding and the follow-up edition chronicles the quest for revenge by the surviving victims. Season 2, which concluded in October 2020, has left behind the scope for a third edition. So now, let’s address this natural question: will we see a ‘Mirzapur’ season 3?
Mirzapur Season 3 Release Date:
‘Mirzapur’ season 2 premiered on October 23, 2020, on Amazon Prime Video. It consists of 10 episodes. Although Prime is yet to officially renew the series, actor Ali Fazal (Guddu) has hinted that a new season is a possibility. The star said during an interview with The New Indian Express: “There are more characters that have tuned in, and the show has sort of gone out of Mirzapur and back again. I think it might also head into Season 3.”
As per reports, Amazon representatives are already in with the new iteration. Apparently, the script-writing commenced after filming for season 2 concluded. And the production team has started holding auditions for new characters. But these are just inputs from media tabloids and nothing is confirmed unless Prime issues an official announcement. However, considering the positive response and fan-frenzy, the third season seems likely. If renewed soon enough, ‘Mirzapur’ season 3 should release sometime in 2022.
Mirzapur Season 3 Cast: Who Can be in it?
Season 3 will obviously mark the return of all the major players — Pankaj Tripathi as Akhandanand Tripathi aka Kaleen Bhaiya (the uncrowned king of Mirzapur), Ali Fazal as Guddu Pandit, Isha Talwar as Madhuri Yadav, Rasika Dugal as Beena Tripathi, Vijay Varma as Bharat Tyagi, Rajesh Tailang as Ramakant Pandit, Shweta Tripathi as Golu Gupta, and Anjum Sharma as Sharad Shukla. Other stars playing vital roles may also make a return, joined by some new faces. Divyendu Sharma as Munna Tripathi (Kaleen Bhaiya’s son and successor), and Kulbhushan Kharbanda as Satyanand Tripathi, won’t be making a comeback — as their characters die in season 2. We will update this section as and when we learn more.
Mirzapur Season 3 Plot: What Can it be About?
Season 2 takes up the story right after the conclusion of season 1 when Bablu (Guddu’s brother) and Sweety (Golu’s sister) are killed by Munna in the midst of a wedding. Now, Golu (who has transformed from a nerdy student to a ruthless killer) and Guddu are on their quest for revenge against the Tripathi clan. Following a massive shootout, season 2 ends on a huge cliffhanger. Although Munna dies and Kaleen Bhaiya is seriously wounded, the latter survives. So the follow-up edition will pick up the story from here.
Additionally, the second season expands the number of conflicts between the Pandit, Tripathi, Gupta, and Shankar clans. And season 3 is expected to address this part of the storyline as well. Moreover, Beena’s story arc has seen an interesting development. She has been one of the main schemers in season 2 and the next part should address how everything will end for her as well.
