Will there be Sacred Games season 2 on Netflix?
The streaming service, Netflix has made an announcement yet about the season two of SacredGames. But, it is looking promising and has a great potential to do wonders in India. The Netflix series is an adaptation of the novel which goes by the same name and written by Vikram Chandra.
The story of the season one is taken from the first quarter of the novel and is based in Bombay (present time Mumbai in India). Going by such a partition, the novel should get completed in four seasons. Making the second installment will be based entirely on how the show attracts Indian and worldwide viewers to Netflix.
The audience of Netflix and small screen in India has been growing rapidly. To make the full profit out of it, the streaming service is thinking to provide an alternative option to Bollywood movies. Erik Barmack, the VP of international originals also accepted the same.
