Amazon Prime Video’s gritty crime saga, Mirzapur has become a massive phenomenon. Its dialogues are quoted everywhere and everyone is talking about it. Mirzapur Season 2 came with a bang and went on to receive critical and commercial acclaim. Speculations about Mirzapur Season 3 are already in the air with fans are more than eager to know what’s gonna happen next!
Mirzapur Season 2 ended with another cliffhanger. Season 1 was hugely popular among the masses but received lackluster reviews. Season 2 improved upon that massively. With several new interesting characters and massive development in the old character’s development and the plot-structure made it one of Amazon’s best outing.
Mirzapur tells the story of the Kaleen Bhaiya (Pankaj Tripathi) and his rule as the kingpin of Mirzapur. After his son Munna (Divyendu Sharma) accidentally kills someone with his gun, it leads to a series of events that entangle various characters, particularly brothers Guddu (Ali Fazal) and Bablu (Vikrant Massey) in the world of crime, weapons, and drugs
A friendly reminder, Spoilers ahead!
Mirzapur Season 3: Release Date
Season 2 premiered on October 23, 2020. With all the appreciation the show has received till now, Mirzapur Season 3 should be on the plates. Although, fans have to wait for some time till Mirzapur Season 3 is finally airs. Season 2 premiered two years after the first season.
In an interview with New Indian Express, Ali Fazal said that he thinks that the show may head towards season 3 and he would be glad to be back.“I’m not a method actor, but with this character, there was already a memory attached, a life lived,” Fazal commented on his character, Guddu.
Amazon has however made no official confirmation. With only two weeks in for Season 2, it is not a surprise. It can be assumed that Mirzapur Season 3 is definitely on Amazon’s future roster.
Who will be back?
Fazal’s interest in coming back means that at least we will see him in the Mirzapur Season 3 for sure. Fazal received much more acclaim for this season than the first. Several critics even noted that Fazal might have become the most developed and best character of Season 2.
Ali Fazal will be soon seen in the sequel to Murder on the Orient Express. The sequel named Death on the Nile will be based on another Agatha Christie novel and will star Russell Brand, Gal Gadot, and Armie Hammer along with Fazal.
Much like Vikrant Massey, who bid farewell in a shocking first season finale, this season also sends off another character. Divyendu Sharma’s Munna, a character everyone loves to hate, finally says goodbye in the Season 2 finale.
Pankaj Tripathi’s Kaleen Bhaiya was also supposedly killed at the end of Season 2. However, we see Sharad (Anjum Sharma) driving away Kaleen away in his car. Without Pankaj Tripathi’s menacing portrayal of Kaleen Bhaiya, the show won’t be the same anyway. Tripathi has also delivered a brilliant performance in Anurag Basu’s Ludo. Ludo released on Netflix on November 12 and has received critical acclaim.
Another important character this season was Golu, portrayed by Shweta Tripathi. She also received rave reviews for her performance. Fans expect to see her again in Mirzapur Season 3.
Fans expect to see many other characters returning for Mirzapur Season 3, including:
- Rasika Dugal as Beena
- Isha Talwar as Madhuri
- Vijay Varma as Bharat
- Priyanshu Painyuli as Robin
- Lilliput as Dadda
- Harshita Gaur as Dimpy
The plot of Mirzapur Season 3
Just like the first season, Mirzapur Season 2 also ended with a shock. A beloved character dies, although he did have it coming! Guddu and Golu finally exact their vengeance as they gun down Kaleen Bhaiya and Munna.
We see Munna die and Kaleen Bhaiya at the mercy of Guddu. But they soon Sharad intervenes, who saves Kaleen and takes him away in a car. It will be interesting to see where this leads. Sharad’s plans still didn’t get to see the final light and what is he up to now!
We also expect to see more of Madhuri in the next season. She came in like a ray of hope for Munna and even audiences expected that a new side of Munna was finally out. How Munna’s death is going to affect her will be noteworthy in Mirzapur Season 3.
For the record, these are just mere speculations and none of it is confirmed yet. Amazon will take its time to announce the next season. Mirzapur Season 2 is now available on Amazon Prime Video.
