Mirzapur Season 3 Release Date

Mirzapur, the gritty crime drama that took India by storm with its raw portrayal of power struggles in the lawless heartland, is finally set to return for its much-awaited third season.

After a cliffhanger ending in season two and a production shift, fans have been eagerly waiting to see how the narrative unfolds in the fictional city of Mirzapur. Created by Karan Anshuman and Puneet Krishna, the series is produced by Excel Entertainment and streams on Amazon Prime Video.

With the success of the first two seasons, has laid the foundation of a gripping narrative filled with complex characters and ruthless ambition. Following the explosive end of the second season, the audience is now on the lookout for what’s next in store.

Recap of the First Two Seasons of Mirzapur

Before you go ahead watching the third season, let us explore the plot outline of the first two seasons. 

Season 1 Recap

The first season begins with Akhandanand Tripathi, also known as Kaleen Bhaiya (Pankaj Tripathi), who is a mafia don and the patriarch of the powerful Tripathi family. With the kind of influence that he had, he ruled the entirety of Mirzapur with an iron fist.

Besides his impacts, Akhandanand runs a thriving business in illegal firearms and opium. His son, Munna (Divyendu Sharma), is a hot-headed and impulsive young man who desires to prove himself worthy of his father’s empire.

In the first season, we are also introduced to another popular character, Guddu Pandit (Ali Fazal) and his brother Bablu (Vikrant Massey). They are entirely out of the loop, hailing from middle-class families and getting themselves tangled in the web of crime, deceit and unexpected and unfortunate events. As they rise in Kaleen Bhaiya’s ranks, they become embroiled in a deadly game of power, revenge, and betrayal.

Season 2 Recap

While the first season was a mere introduction to the world of Mirzapur, the second season came back with a bang, introducing some of the most unexpected twists and turns. After the shocking death of Bablu, Guddu seeks revenge against the Tripathi family. He allies with Golu Gupta (Shweta Tripathi Sharma), Bablu’s love interest, who also has a vendetta against the Tripathis.

In this particular season, you are also introduced to a lot of supporting characters that turn out to be the underdogs in the upcoming episodes. All of them come together with a single objective – To take down the Tripathi empire.

Meanwhile, Kaleen Bhaiya faces threats from both outside and within his family. His wife, Beena (Rasika Dugal), plots against him, and Munna becomes increasingly unstable and ambitious. The season ends with a dramatic showdown where Munna is presumably killed by Guddu, leaving Kaleen Bhaiya critically wounded and the future of Mirzapur hanging in the balance.

With that, the first two seasons of Mirzapur wrapped up, leaving a lot of open-end expectations for what the third season would unwrap for the fans eventually.

What can we expect in Mirzapur Season 3?

Mirzapur fans seem to be quite taken with the upcoming third season. With the lack of certainty surrounding the show’s eventual release and the lack of input from the showrunners, there is no direct way to interpret how things will pan out in the upcoming season.

Following are a few speculations that could come to fruition in the plot of the upcoming season.

Guddu and Golu’s Reign

Having taken down Munna and severely injured Kaleen Bhaiya, Guddu and Golu might find themselves in control of Mirzapur. However, maintaining power will be a different challenge altogether. They will need to deal with internal conflicts, potential betrayals, and the threat of Kaleen Bhaiya’s loyalists.

Kaleen’s Bhaiyya’s Revenge

Despite being injured so severely it doesn’t look like Kaleen Bhaiyya is going to tap out any easier than what people were anticipating. So, once he recovers and regains his strength, he will surely want to hunt down the people who have caused him such an amount of grief and get back to them with a lot more. His cunning nature and deep connections will pose a significant threat to Guddu and Golu.

Beena’s Machinations

Beena, having killed Satyanand Tripathi (Kulbhushan Kharbanda) and manipulated the events to her favour, could play a pivotal role in the upcoming season. We briefly mentioned how the second season introduced wild cards that would end up being underdogs and it looks like that’s exactly how things would pan out in the upcoming season as well. Beena, with her resourcefulness, might end up being part of the power struggle.

New Alliances and Enemies

With Mirzapur’s throne up for grabs, new characters and factions might emerge, seeking to capitalize on the chaos. This could introduce fresh storylines and complex relationships, adding more depth to the series.

Besides all this, the fans are also curious to learn more details about new additions to the show. Not just that, Sharad Shukla (Anjum Sharma), the son of Rati Shankar Shukla, who was killed by Guddu, has a vendetta against the Tripathis and the Pandits. There are chances that this character could shine in the third season as well.

Cast and Characters in Mirzapur Season 3

When Season 3 eventually releases, we can expect all the main cast members to reprise their roles. It would include:

  • Pankaj Tripathi as Akhandanand Tripathi (Kaleen Bhaiya)
  • Ali Fazal as Govind “Guddu” Pandit
  • Shweta Tripathi Sharma as Gajgamini “Golu” Gupta
  • Rasika Dugal as Beena Tripathi
  • Harshita Gaur as Dimpy Pandit
  • Anjum Sharma as Sharad Shukla

While there hasn’t been official confirmation of new cast members, it’s expected that Season 3 will introduce new characters to further complicate the plot. These new entrants could be rival gang leaders, political figures, or even international players in the drug and arms trade, adding new dimensions to the storyline. It would be interesting to see in which direction the show is headed towards.

Production and Release of Mirzapur Season 3

With all the buildup and the talks about the third season of Mirzapur, there seems to be very little information about the actual release of the new season.

The creators have ensured that each season maintains a high level of suspense and intensity, keeping viewers on the edge of their seats. Season 3 is no exception, with reports suggesting that the production team is working meticulously to deliver a season that lives up to the hype.

It has almost been close to three years since the conclusion of Mirzapur Season 2. While the first two seasons weren’t spaced out by a lot of time, it looks like the showrunners are taking their sweet time creating the third season.

Despite all the buzz and rumours about a potential June 2024 release, there has been no official information shared by the creators or network yet. All that we know is that Prime Video has renewed the show for a third season, so it’s coming.

With how things have been progressing, we can expect the third season to be released either in late 2024 or early 2025. The delay is primarily due to production and post-production processes required to ensure the series’ high-quality standards.

What are the Future Prospects of Mirzapur Production?

With all the fun and buzz, one thing that can be possible is the extension of the show beyond the third season. At this point, it is impossible to guess when or how it will be released though.

The creators have talked about the possibility of new seasons, depending on the audience’s response and the story’s progression. The expansive world of Mirzapur offers numerous storylines and plots that could be explored in subsequent seasons.

However, before we get all excited thinking about the fourth season and beyond, we do have to keep in consideration that the third season hasn’t been released yet. So, once the third season is released, we can pretty much expect the creators to roll out insights about the fourth season (if it’s happening).
