Netflix has finally dropped a new teaser of season two of crime thriller Sacred Games. The 26-second teaser hardly reveals much, but viewers may be pleasantly surprised to see two new characters – Kalki Koechlin and Ranvir Shorey.
Netflix shared the teaser on social media and captioned it, “Season 2 is coming. Put your chattris in the air. #SacredGamesS2.”
In brief introductions, Kalki Koechlin and Ranvir Shorey’s characters are shown, suggesting that these two new people could very well change the course of the narrative. While Kalki will essay a character called Batya, Ranvir will be joining the cast as Shahid Khan. The duo will play crucial roles in the unravelling of a new mystery.

Back with a bang of course are Sartaj Singh (Saif Ali Khan) and Ganesh Gaitonde (Nawazuddin Siddiqui), along with Pankaj Tripathi, who is expected to have a more prominent role in Season 2. In the first season, Pankaj had been introduced in the show as Giatonde’s ‘third father.’
Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap has directed Ganesh Gaitonde’s track, while Neeraj Ghaywan (of Masaan-fame) is the main man behind Sartaj’s track in Season 2. Vikramaditya Motwane and Varun Grover continue their roles of the showrunner and the lead writer respectively.
Based on Vikram Chandra’s award-winning book, Sacred Games Season 2 will premiere on Netflix later this year.
