Is Mirzapur season 3 confirmed? Let’s consider the Amazon Prime Video series’ renewal status. Does it have a release date yet?

Let’s face it, 2020 hasn’t exactly gifted us with much.

It’s been a particularly disastrous year in many respects and people have had to persevere and find enjoyment where they can.

Most of the time, that has been from the comfort of their own sofas.

So far this year, audiences have been treated to some seriously great television, whether courtesy of the BBC, Channel 4, Sky or streaming services.

Netflix has boasted a number of hits, from the sinister chills of Ratched to the insanity of Tiger King.

On the other hand, Amazon Prime Video has nailed it with a wealth of titles in film and TV too.

Recently, viewers have been invited to check out the return of an icon thanks to Borat Subsequent Moviefilm and the latest season of Mirzapur has been hailed too.

Created by Karan Anshuman and Puneet Krishna, this crime-thriller series has earned quite the following over two seasons. So, it’s only inevitable that hopes have swiftly turned to a third…

Is Mirzapur season 3 confirmed?

  • No, Mirzapur season 3 is yet to be confirmed. However, there is good reason to believe that the series will be renewed.

As highlighted by Bustle, actor Ali Fazal (he plays Guddu) expressed to The New Indian Express that there is potential for a third season:

“There are more characters that have tuned in, and the show has sort of gone out of Mirzapur and back again. I think it might also head into Season 3.”

Daily Research Plot also notes that “one representative of Amazon has given their consent on Season 3.”

On the other hand, Bustle includes that Ali addressed the issue of some audiences boycotting the show while in conversation with DNA India:

“I feel bad when people talk about boycotting the show because so many people are involved in making it. Sometimes, I have to weigh my options and take a step back for the larger good of others; I don’t want them to bear the brunt of my actions. That said, I will not stop raising my voice. I am an artist in a free world. I am supposed to raise questions. The environment of hate needs to be tackled with peace.”

So, while it hasn’t officially confirmed, there is reason to suspect renewal news will be announced by Amazon soon.

Mirzapur season 3: Release date?

As the series is yet to be officially renewed for season 3, there is no news regarding a release date.

The first series was released in November 2018 and the second in October 2020; quite a sizeable gap between releases.

Taking this into account, season 3 may potentially arrive early 2022 if it is confirmed.
