The resounding success of Mirzapur 2 has prompted Amazon Prime Video to greenlight season three within no time of the second season hitting the platform, which is way faster than the time taken to announce season two. This just goes to show how the web series picked up post the first season, and how many people were eagerly anticipating to watch it the second time around. In fact, the streaming giant has declared that Mirzapur 2 was binge-watched in its entirety by almost 50% of the OTT platform’s audience within merely two days of the web show being released, and that’s a substantial number given Amazon Prime’s subscriber base, even if we just take the Indian market in consideration.
Recently, Shweta Tiwari, who plays the much-loved Golu Tiwari, on the show, took to her official Instagram handle to thank viewers for all the love they’ve showered while also passing a subtle hint about season three. Looks like she knew more than she was letting on, and her words have come true faster than anyone could’ve anticipated. The actress had written: “It’s been a week since the Bhaukaal. A week since Gajgamini 2.0 was introduced. A week full of love, wishes, memes that had us all A week I have missed Gajgamini the most. I will never be able to put into words what Golu and Mirzapur are to me. And what your love and support means. All I can say is a big, biiiiiig THANK YOU Choti beti wapus aayegi aur bhi ke saath. Season 3 ka humme bhi hai intezaar @mihirbd & @flyingparatha #MirzapurOnPrime #Mirzapur2 @yehhaimirzapur @primevideoin @excelmovies .” Check out her post below:
Meanwhile, producer Ritesh Sidhwani of Excel Entertainment had also expressed his happiness at the success of Mirzapur season 2, saying, “Across two gripping seasons, Mirzapur has become a global sensation and we couldn’t be happier associating with Amazon Prime Video to make this happen! The show’s massive fandom and the viewers’ magnitude of love towards the new season was seen through reactions on social media within days of its release, and we are truly humbled by the response.”
Well, we can’t wait for Mirzapur 2. How about you?
