At the International Emmy Awards 2022, Delhi Crime received the award for Outstanding Drama Series becoming the first-ever Indian series to win this award. So, the pressure is on Netflix to follow up with an equally good second part.

Reportedly, the second season is based on the Nithari serial killings that took place in the house of businessman Moninder Singh Pandher in Sector-31, Noida near Nithari village, in 2005 and 2006.
