Aarya season 2: Release date confirmed

Aarya season 2 will release worldwide via the Disney Plus Hotstar on December 10th, 2021.

The second season was publicly announced in July 2020, with filming starting from March 1st, 2021 in Jaipur. Unfortunately, like countless other productions, filming was hampered by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and didn’t conclude until June 2021.

“In the second season, the audiences encounter Aarya in a new light. While in the first season, we saw her take the moral stand on the incidents around her life, this time we will see her emerge with a survival instinct like never before.” – Ram Madhvani, via Koimoi.

All episodes from season 2 of Aarya will be available to stream online from December 10th, but neither an episode count nor release time has yet been confirmed.

How was season 1 rated?

Season 1 of Aarya received a fantastic reception from both fans and critics alike, resulting in several nominations at the 2020 Filmfare OTT Awards – including Sushmita Sen winning Best Actress.

The series was even nominated for Best Drama Series at the 2021 International Emmy Awards.

At the time of writing, Aarya has maintained its exceptional standings on various user-based feedback websites, scoring 7.9/10 on IMDB with over 11,000 reviews.

“A story well told, gripping and well maintained. Brilliant performance by Sushmita sen, she nailed it with her acting skills. She deserves more such roles. Gets bit dragged in some portions but thats avoidable. Overall a good watch.” – User rajiyer-66521, via IMDB.

However, there were several reviews from critics that whilst being initially positive, hinted that there were aspects holding Aarya back from superstardom.

Both The Times of India and The Indian Express gave Aarya’s debut broadcast a solid, if not underwhelming, three out-of-five stars.

“For the most part, Aarya stays on course, taut, unpredictable, pacey and enjoyable. I was eager to know what’s going to happen next, and that’s straight away a win.” – The Indian Express.
