Mirzapur season 2 trailer is here. Amazon Prime Video has unveiled a two-and-a-half-minute look at the sophomore season of Mirzapur, that sets up a war brewing between the Tripathis — “Kaleen” Tripathi (Pankaj Tripathi) and his son and heir “Munna” Tripathi (Divyendu Sharma) — his rival's son Sharad Shukla (Anjum Sharma), and their once-henchman “Guddu” Pandit (Ali Fazal). Both Sharad and Guddu have revenge on their minds (SPOILER ALERT FOR SEASON 1) having lost family members — Sharad's father, and his brother and wife in Guddu's case — at the hands of the Tripathi clan, who are vowing to rule Mirzapur with an iron fist in season 2.
In addition to Tripathi, Divyendu, Anjum, and Fazal, Mirzapur season 2 also stars Shweta Tripathi Sharma as Guddu's sister-in-law “Golu” Gupta, Rasika Dugal as Kaleen's second wife Beena Tripathi, Harshita Shekhar Gaur as Guddu's younger sister Dimpy Pandit, Kulbhushan Kharbanda as Kaleen's father “Akhanda” Tripathi, Rajesh Tailang as Guddu's father Ramakant Pandit, and Sheeba Chadha as Guddu's mother and Ramakant's wife Vasudha. New additions on Mirzapur season 2 include Amit Sial (Inside Edge), Vijay Varma (Gully Boy), Isha Talwar (Article 15), and Priyanshu Painyuli (Bhavesh Joshi Superhero).
Behind the scenes, Puneet Krishna is the creator and head writer on Mirzapur season 2, taking over from fellow Mirzapur creator Karan Anshuman who was busy with Inside Edge season 2. Gurmmeet Singh and Mihir Desai are the directors on Mirzapur season 2. Executive producers include Excel Entertainment's Ritesh Sidhwani, Farhan Akhtar, and Kassim Jagmagia.
