‘Sacred Games’ Season 3 is not far away. What has Netflix India planned for the fans of the crime-conspiracy thriller this time?
‘Sacred Games’ was one of the first Indian web shows to have started the trend of digital streaming platforms and shows in India. With the show based on Vikram Chandra’s 2006 Novel “Sacred Games”, Netflix placed a huge bet to strengthen its roots in India with regional content. The show was miraculously successful and drew in a huge number of viewers for the first time for any OTT platform in India. Considering the success of its first two seasons, it was obvious that Netflix would renew ‘Sacred Games’ for season 3. However, in the absence of any update on the show’s future, fans are concerned about the next season. But it seems that Sacred Games season 3 is due soon.

It’s high time, Netflix should announce season 3 of ‘Sacred Games’.
Netflix’s revival plan for ‘Sacred Games 3’?
‘Sacred Games’ debuted on Netflix on 30th June 2018 with the partial release of 4 episodes. Later, on 5th July 2018, Netflix released the entire season consisting of 8-episodes. The show was pre-planned to stretch over 2 seasons for the conclusion of the storyline that started with season 1. Season 2 of ‘Sacred Games’ premiered on Netflix over a year later, on 15th August 2019.
Season 2 of the show was rather controversial for its abrupt ending. In the finale episode, the screen turns black before viewers can find out if Sartaj (Saif Ali Khan) was successful in defusing the bomb or if the city of Mumbai was wiped out from the face of the earth. While it was assumed that the storyline ended with the end relying on the viewer’s interpretation, it was still believed that Netflix might renew the show for further seasons.
As of now, Netflix has not renewed the ‘Sacred Games’ for season 3. However, due to the popularity of the show, the possibilities for renewal in the near future are still very high.
With Guruji and Gaitonde dead, what will be Sartaj’s next mission in ‘Sacred Games’ Season 3?
What will happen in season 3 of ‘Sacred Games’?
It’s not confirmed if ‘Sacred Games’ will be getting a season 3 from Netflix or not. However, fans are keeping a keen eye on every update. Season 3 of ‘Sacred Games’ is in extreme demand, and possibilities are that Netflix will soon renew the show. However, the fact that bothers the fans is that the storyline, and the story in the books, were completed in season 2. Thus, it’s now hard to guess what storyline season 3 of ‘Sacred Games’ will follow.
In the first two seasons, the key characters including, Ganesh Gaitonde (Nawazuddin Siddique), Anjali Mathur (Radhika Apte), Guruji (Pankaj Tripathi), were dead. Sartaj was the only key character that was alive before the screen went black at the end of season 2. Thus, it is being speculated that season 3 of the show might revolve around Sartaj. It’s possible that the show will not renew the same story but will rather reboot with a new storyline and a new set of conflicts.
While we wait for Netflix to announce a renewal and a release date for season 3 of ‘Sacred Games’, let’s rejoice at the fact that two other popular web-shows ‘Mirzapur‘ and ‘The Family Man‘ are all ready to premier with season 2 this year.
