What will be the plot of Mirzapur 3?
Mirzapur season 2 was power-packed with lots of twists and turns in its narrative. It ended leaving behind a lot of questions unanswered. Fans are coming up with their theories. These are few rumors and possible story/plot options for the forthcoming season of Mirzapur:
1) A large section of fans believe that Munna (Divyendu Sharma) is still alive and going to come back in the coming season.
2) Guddu (Ali Fazal) will be under heat as he becomes the new king of Mirzapur. Kaleen Bhaiya (Pankaj Tripathi) will come back with all guns blazing to regain power. Expect some out-of-box political tricks from his end.
3) Sharad Shukla (Anjum Sharma) will play a prominent role and we may see him as the new king of Mirzapur. He tries to fulfill his father’s legacy by taking over Mirzapur.
4) Beena will face heat when Kaleen gets to know that he was betrayed by his wife. Maqbool will be under fire for helping Beena and it would be interesting to see how he returns in the coming season.
5) Many believe that Chotte Tyagi is alive. He will play a big role in the third season. We may see Golu gets killed by him.
6) Some true fans of the show have the opinion that Robin’s true identity hasn’t been revealed yet. He will show his true colors in the coming season.
As you can see, there is a lot to explore in the upcoming season. Fazal told Filmfare in a recent interview: “Now, we have a bigger challenge – to outdo the last two seasons. I will get busy with other projects now, but we plan to shoot soon.”

Recent updates on Mirzapur season 3
In July 2021, producer Ritesh Sidhwani shared updates on the upcoming season. He said that Season 3 is in the scripting stage and the filming will start in 2022.
Season 3 is in the pre-production stage. the filming is expected to begin in early 2022. This time the content of the show would be less violent and abusive as the makers were in legal trouble.
A plea was filed in the court by an advocate objectifying the portrayal of Beena Tripathi. It particularly objected to Beena’s sexual relationship with the servant and father-in-law. The plea read, “By showing such ridiculous and shameless things on the name of a city/ district is the insult of approximately 30 lakh population and rich culture of Mirzapur.”
Amazon Prime Video is already in trouble due to controversy related to its show Tandav. After the FIR, Mirzapur is likely to go through some big changes and we may see toning down the verbal and visual violence.
Recently, Shweta Tripathi took to Instagram to share posters of Mirzapur. She captioned it, “I miss Golu a lot. Can’t wait to know what happens next. Can’t wait to be her. Again. This show and everything about it. Thank you for Mirzapur. 1& 2.”

Do we have a trailer for Mirzapur season 3?
There is no trailer or promotional material. In fact, the production hasn’t started yet. Once the filming begins, we may get some behind-the-scenes videos on social media. The trailer is expected to release a month before the premiere date.
Mirzapur Season 3 release date
Season one of Mirzapur arrived in November 2018 with all nine episodes dropping at once. While season 2 was expected to release in 2019, it got delayed several times before finally arriving on Oct 23, 2020, with 10 new episodes.
Amazon executive Aparna Purohit said in a statement, “The overwhelming response on the new season of Mirzapur is a testament to our commitment and efforts. Over the last two years, viewers continued to engage with the immersive universe of Mirzapur and its characters. Our collaboration with Excel Media and Entertainment has always been wonderful and we are happy to share this success with them.”
Producer Ritesh Sidhwani said: “Across two gripping seasons, Mirzapur has become a global sensation and we couldn’t be happier associating with Amazon Prime Video to make this happen.
“The show’s massive fandom and the viewers’ magnitude of love towards the new season was seen through reactions on social media within days of its release, and we are truly humbled by the response.”
With Season three currently in the scripting stage, don’t expect Mirzapur 3 to premiere in 2021. My best bet for Mirzapur Season 3 released date would be late 2022 or early 2023.
While we await season 3, Mirzapur seasons 1 and 2 are streaming on Amazon Prime Video now.
