As fans continue to wait for Mirzapur Season 3, producer Ritesh Sidhwani shared a big update on the crime-drama series.
The first season of the crime-thriller web series ‘Mirzapur’ landed on Amazon Prime Video on Nov 16, 2018. In no time, it became the most-watched Indian web series and achieved cult status in the Indian OTT space. With Season 2 dropped last year, Pankaj Tripathi and Ali Fazal starter series achieved new heights. Such is the popularity of the show that fans are now getting restless for the next season.
Ritesh Sidhwani confirmed Mirzapur Season 3 soon after the second season dropped on Amazon Prime Video. While the fans are super excited for the upcoming season, producer Ritesh Sidhwani recently shared a big update on the series.
He said, “Mirzapur… we are working on the script. We were actually supposed to start shooting this year, but now because of the lockdown and rains (the monsoons, following the lockdown, has apparently made it difficult for the third season to take off, despite the government somewhat relaxing shooting restrictions for the industry), it is happening definitely, but it’ll be happening next year.”
COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent lockdowns have affected the filming schedules of most big-budget web series. The same is the case with Mirzapur Season 3. So, the fans have to wait long for the third season as they did for the second season.
With an IMDB rating of 8.4, Mirzapur is one of the top-rated Indian web series. The first and second seasons are streaming on Amazon Prime Video.
