The Family Man Season 2: Plot & Storyline
The crime thriller series shows the story of a middle-class man who works as an intelligence officer for a special unit T.A.S.C of the National Investigation Agency. While he tries to protect the nation from terrorists, he also has to protect his family from the impact of his secretive, high-pressure, and low paying job.
In the first season, we saw how Manoj and his team try their best to save the nation from a deadly terrorist Mission Zulfiqar. In the last episode, T.A.S.C. realizes that Moosa’s plan is to recreate the Bhopal Gas Tragedy in New Delhi. In the last scene of the first season, it is shown that the pressure has reached a critical limit and the toxic gases have started leaking. Suddenly, one of the containers bursts open after reaching the critical pressure, and the show ends on a cliffhanger.
