The popularity of streaming platforms witnessed a steep rise during the lockdown. Less popular streaming platforms like Voot, Zee5, and MX Player fetched huge viewership at that time. At a time when the digital streaming space was overcrowded, one show that made its mark was Voot’s mythological thriller Asur. Starring Arshad Warsi and Barun Sobti, ‘Asur’ is a crime thriller that combines Hindu mythology with forensic science seamlessly.
Released on 1 March 2020, the first season of Asur received a tremendous response. The viewers loved it owing to its thrilling plot, detailed narration, and top-notch performances. The series won several awards at various award shows. After the success of the first season, the fans are now waiting for the second season. So, what are the latest updates on Asur Season 2?

Asur Season 2 Plot & Storyline
In the first season, we saw a cat and mouse game between a brutal serial killer and CBI team led by forensic officer Nikhil Nair (Barun Sobti) and Dhananjay Rajpoot (Arshad Warsi). The second season promises more thrill as the game of “sur-asur” or good vs bad continues. In the first season, it became almost clear that Shubh (serial killer) is not alone.
