The popularity of streaming platforms witnessed a steep rise during the lockdown. During the lockdown, less popular streaming platforms like Voot, Zee5, and MX Player fetched huge viewership. At the time when the digital entertainment space is overcrowded, one show which has made its mark is Voot’s mythological-thriller titled Asur. ‘Asur’ is a crime thriller that combines Hindu mythology with forensic science seamlessly.
Released on 1 March 2020, the first season received tremendous reviews. The viewers loved it owing to its thrilling plot, detailed narration, and top-notch performances. After the success of the first season, the fans are now waiting for the second season. Is there a possibility of Asur season 2? When will it release? Who are the cast members? Let’s find out.
Will there be Asur season 2?
The first season of Asur ended on a confusing note, leaving enough space for the second season. One of the lead actors of Asur, Barun Sobti expressed his excitement about the show’s future, in a way confirming the second season. As of 18 Aug 2020, Voot hasn’t renewed the Asur for the second season.
Given the popularity of the first season, it is expected that Voot would announce the upcoming season pretty soon.
Asur Season 2 release date
Asur is not only Voot’s but one of the top-rated Hindi web series of 2020. It can be judged by the fact that the IMDb rating of the show is 8.4 (19000+ votes). Given the popularity, we are anticipating the second season to arrive sooner than expected. Our wild guess is that Asur season 2 will most likely release sometime in the second quarter of 2021.
