It is not often that an Indian web series lasts the distance like their international counterparts. As Inside Edge went in for a third season like Four More Shots Please, the makers of the gritty Mirzapur have announced that the web-series will have a third instalment, too.
An industry source tells us, “The first part was a super hit though the second season has been a little below expectation. Even so, the characters are now completely entrenched in people’s minds and hence there is a third season. In fact, statistics show that despite the criticism over the second season, half the audiences finished watching the show over a Saturday and Sunday.”
Starring powerhouse performers such as Pankaj Tripathi, Ali Fazal, Vikrant Massey, Shweta Tripathi Sharma, Vijay Varma and Divyendu Sharma, Mirzapur has been produced by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani who also produced Inside Edge.
Telling us how across two gripping seasons, Mirzapur has become a global sensation, Ritesh Sidhwani says, “We couldn’t be happier to have made this happen. The show’s massive fandom and the viewers’ magnitude of love towards the new season were seen through reactions on social media within days of its release, and we are truly humbled by the response,” he says.
The third season might reveal if Munna Tripathi, played by Divyendu, is still alive....
