Netflix’s crime spine chiller, Sacred Games, is based on the 2006 novel of the same name by Vikram Chandra and was adapted for TV by Varun Grover, Smita Singh, and Vasant Nath. The series d marks the first original to come from India (via Business Insider) and has ended up being a successful move until this point, giving wide audiences access to Indian media outside of Bollywood movies.
When will season 3 be released?
At this point, Netflix has not released any information on whether Sacred Games will come back for a 3rd season. It seems it could go one way or the other, since the show has already used its source material with Chandra’s book, however, the 2nd season ended with a cliffhanger which might indicate that there’s something more to come. Nawazuddin Siddiqui, who portrays one of the leads, has talked about the matter, saying that he doesn’t believe that there will be a 3rd season. In an interaction, he stated, “Whatever had to be said from the original novel has already been said. There is nothing left in Vikram Chandra’s novel to be put in season 3.”
Who will be in the cast of season 3?
Any season of Sacred Games wouldn’t be complete without its two stars, Saif Ali Khan as Sartaj Singh and Nawazuddin Siddiqui as Ganesh Gaitonde. These two are actually the only two cast members to be credited as main characters for the two seasons, so we can almost expect something very same for any likely third season.
Those who were lucky enough to not meet their demises include key characters such as Batya Abelman (Kalki Koechlin) and Suleiman Isa (Saurabh Sachdeva), who would also likely come back for a 3rd season.
What will the season 3 plot be about?
If renewed for a 3rd season, the plot will probably get right where this cliffhanger left off and uncover whether or not the password worked. Almost certainly, assuming that the show proceeded, the password was for sure successful and the plot could continue to focus on the consequence of the whole circumstance. The first two seasons covered the contents of the book it’s based on, so the show’s writers would have total freedom of where to take the story next.
