Sacred Games Season 3: Expected Release Date & Updates!

Sacred Games, a crime thriller on Netflix, is based on Vikram Chandra’s 2006 novel of the same name, which was adapted for television by Varun Grover, Smita Singh, and Vasant Nath. The series is the first Netflix original to come from India (via Business Insider) and has proven to be a successful move thus far, providing broad audiences with access to Indian media beyond Bollywood films.

The crime-filled drama follows a Mumbai police officer, Sartaj Singh (Saif Ali Khan), who is assigned the task of saving the entire city from disaster after receiving a call from gangster Ganesh Gaitonde (Nawazuddin Siddiqui). The series, which has received positive reviews overall — it has a Tomatometer score of 76 percent and an audience score of 83 percent on Rotten Tomatoes — has two seasons available for bingeing so far. Given that the season 2 finale ended on a cliffhanger, fans are bound to be curious about a possible third season of the series — here’s what we know so far.

When will Season 3 be available?

As of now, Netflix has not stated whether or not Sacred Games will return for a third season. Given that the show has already used all of its source material with Chandra’s book, it appears that it could go either way, but the second season did end on a cliffhanger, which may indicate that there’s more to come. Nawazuddin Siddiqui, who plays one of the leads, has spoken out about the possibility of a third season, stating that he does not believe there will be one. He stated in an interview, “Everything that needed to be said from the original novel has already been saying. There is nothing left in Vikram Chandra’s novel that could be included in Season 3.”

While this announcement may be disappointing to the show’s many fans, it has yet to be confirmed by Netflix — and the streaming platform has the final say. Siddiqui could have been speculating, or plans could have changed after that, but there’s no way to know for sure until Netflix makes an announcement.

The second season was released in August of 2019, which seems like a long time to go without hearing anything about a third season released on 12, September 2022. The global pandemic of 2020, on the other hand, impacted pretty much every show and film in development, resulting in numerous pushbacks and postponements, so the extended period since the season 2 premiere isn’t necessarily indicative of anything concrete.

Who will be in the Season 3 cast?

Sacred Games Season 3

Any season of Sacred Games would be incomplete without its two stars, Sartaj Singh (Saif Ali Khan) and Ganesh Gaitonde (Nawazuddin Siddiqui). These two are the only two cast members who have been credited as main characters in both seasons, so any potential third season will most likely follow suit.

Some of the characters in this crime-filled and action-packed plot did not make it out alive by the end of season 2. In fact, some of the deaths were quite shocking, such as that of Anjali Mathur (Radhika Apte), a research and analysis officer who was shot by Murad Malcolm (Luke Kenny) while on a case. Majid Khan (Aamir Bashir) was also killed by Shahid Khan (Ranvir Shorey) just as he and Sartaj had discovered the bomb they were looking for. In addition, cult leader Khanna Guruji (Pankaj Tripathi) was killed by Ganesh.

Key characters who escaped death include Batya Abelman (Kalki Koechlin) and Suleiman Isa (Saurabh Sachdeva), both of whom are expected to return in a future season.

What will the plot of Season 3 be about?

Officers Sartaj and Majid discovered the nuclear bomb at the end of Season 2 after searching for it in haste before it went off — but Majid was shot by Shahid just as they made the discovery. Sartaj shot Shahid, killing him, while the bomb was ticking. Shahid had refused to give up the pattern used as a password to unlock the bomb. With time running out, everyone except Sartaj seemed to accept that the bomb would detonate — except for Sartaj, who continued to try to crack the password. Sartaj eventually figured out the password, which was “the shape of the Radcliffe Line or the international border between India and Pakistan during the partition of India,” according to Fansided. Finally, the shot cuts out before it is revealed whether or not the bomb detonated.

If the show is renewed for a third season, it will most likely pick up right where this cliffhanger left off, revealing whether or not the password worked. If the show continued, it’s likely that the password was successful, and the plot could shift to focus on the aftermath of the entire situation. The first two seasons covered the contents of the book on which the show is based, allowing the show’s writers complete freedom in deciding where to take the story next.
