Why was The Family Man season 2 trailer delayed? Fans have reacted to the delay of the anticipated trailer on Twitter.

Overcoming many obstacles, 2020 was arguably a very solid year for both film and television, with the likes of Netflix and Amazon Prime Video offering subscribers a vast array of exciting content.

There are already a wealth of highly anticipated 2021 titles, from such movies as Dune to new seasons of fond favourites like Stranger Things.

However, a number of viewers were anticipating something a little briefer… the trailer for The Family Man season 2.

Created by Raj Nidimoru and Krishna D.K, this action series premiered on Amazon Prime Video in September 2019 and fans have been excited for the next batch of episodes ever since.

The trailer was scheduled to drop on Tuesday, January 19th 2021. However, it hasn’t, so why exactly was The Family Man season 2 trailer delayed?

Why was The Family Man season 2 trailer delayed?

  • Amazon has not offered a reason for the trailer’s delay, but as of yet, there is no reason to believe that it will affect The Family Man season 2 release date.

Binged suggests that the delay may be influenced by recent backlash regarding the Amazon Prime Video series Tandav.

Essentially, Hindu Nationalists, BJP leaders and other audiences explained that they were offended by some of the dialogue present in the political thriller series. The issue stemmed from dialogue referring to Hindu Gods, along with the depiction of items which are part of the Hindu symbolism.

The show’s director – Ali Abbas Zafar – posted an explanation and apology on Twitter [see below]: “The cast and crew did not have any intention to offend the sentiments of any individual, caste, community, race, religion or religious beliefs or insult or outrage any institution, political party or person, living or dead. The cast and crew of Tandav take cognizance of the concerns expressed by the people and unconditionally apologize if it has unintentionally hurt anybody’s sentiments.”

Reflecting on the situation, Binged suggests that Amazon may be looking over their forthcoming content and giving titles – including promotional content – extra treatment to ensure the issue is not repeated.

The teaser, on the other hand, is already available:

The Family Man season 2 release date

The second season of The Family Man is currently scheduled to release on Amazon Prime Video on Friday, February 12th 2021.

While the trailer was delayed, there is no reason to suspect that the season itself won’t release on the proposed date. It’s likely that the season 2 trailer will drop at some point in January 2021, giving audiences a satisfying glimpse before the episodes drop.

As of yet, it’s uncertain how many episodes there will be.
