In this article, we’ll cover everything regarding the upcoming installment of the Asur. Additionally, Arshad Warsi, the lead role and a CID officer tweeted, “I am happy to start filming again.” This in turn confirms the arrival of Asur Season 2.
Asur Season 2: Recap
Asur is a Hindi-language crime suspense drama, psychological thriller series that was first aired on 2 March 2020. Produced by Tanveer Bookwala of Ding Entertainment and Viacom 18 Studios, it is based on an American TV series named ‘True Detective’.
This crime thriller is created by Gaurav Shukla, Shweta More, and Vibhav Shikdar under the supervision of Oni Sen (as a director). Moreover, the story of this much-awaited series was written by Gaurav Shukla, Niren Bhatt, Abhijeet Khuman, and Pranay Patwardhan.
The story of the series revolves around a murderer with mythological beliefs born in the city of Varanasi. Nikhil Nair, a forensic expert, CID officer, and his former mentor, Dhananjay Rajpoot (ACP, CID) investigated a brutal serial killing murder case. ALL-IN-ALL, this series was immensely appreciated by the critics. Within a short period, especially during the first phase of lockdown, Asur managed to create a huge fan base.
Asur Season 2: Release Date
Keeping the fandom and success of the first edition in mind, we can undoubtedly expect the arrival of Asur Season 2. The previous season ended with an open ending. We saw Rasool Shaikh. Asur hasn’t been caught yet. The question remains a mystery – Will Dhananjay Rajput be able to catch the real Rasool? However, due to the sudden rise in the COVID cases, the filming was postponed. Later, on July 16, 2021, the shooting began, and as per the rumor, the filming is on its verge of completion.
As of now, no official announcement has been made from Voot as well as the production team. Barish Sobti who plays Nikhil Nair in the series had completed filming in January 2022. Hopefully, now we can anticipate seeing the upcoming season of Asur anytime in 2022.
