Inside Edge Season 3: Here’s everything you need to know about the next instalment of the cricketing saga on Amazon Prime Video.
- Inside Edge is the first Hindi language web series distributed by Amazon Originals.
- After two successful seasons, the makers renewed the sports-drama web series for the third season.
Inside Edge was one of the earliest web shows on the Indian digital landscape. It premiered in 2017 and received widespread acclaim from critics and audiences alike. Dark drama combined with cricketing elements makes it a compelling watch. The second season of the show which premiered in December 2019 was quite a hit with the audience. Now, they are eagerly waiting for the next season. The good news for the fans is that Prime has renewed the show for a third season. So, without any further delay let’s give you detail about Inside Edge Season 3.
Inside Edge Plot
The show portrays the corruption and dishonesty in the cricketing world. It follows Mumbai Mavericks, a fictional T20 cricket franchise team playing in a fictional cricket tournament named Power Play League. The series traces the ups and downs of the Mumbai Mavericks in the PowerPlay League as they face ownership problems along with accusations of match-fixing. The series depicts how money, politics, and power ruin the spirit of the game.
The second season ends with a brilliant cliffhanger and has kept the audience excited for the third season. Reports suggest that the upcoming season would continue with the Mumbai Mavericks’ dark and thrilling journey.

Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar of Excel Entertainment will continue to serve as executive producers of the show. Tanuj Virani in an interview with Bollywood Life spill the beans on the upcoming season.
He said “We got done shooting for Inside Edge season 3 before season 2 had even released. Can you believe it? The season should be out toward the end of 2020. We’re done shooting it. I think I just broke the news to you (laughs). I spoke to our Director (Karan Anshuman) a few days before the lockdown started, he was right in the middle of the post-production. So, let’s see (how the post-production work progresses).”
Do we have a trailer yet?
The trailer of Inside Edge Season 3 is not out yet. It will release closer to the season premiere. However, you can watch the second season trailer to get a good idea about the show’s premises.
When will Inside Edge Season 3 release?
Amazon Prime featured Inside Edge Season 3 in the list of shows to be released in 2020. However, due to the pandemic, there was a delay in post-production. As per the reports, the post-production work is in its last leg. There were reports that Amazon Studios has asked the creators to make changes and rework on few scenes.
On Jun 21, 2021, the official Twitter account of the series announced that Season 3 is coming soon. Here’s the tweet:
