A couple of months ago, Saif Ali Khan admitted that Sacred Games is a game-changer in his career and is also indicative of the rapid changes in the cinematic platform. As the evening will pass for Sacred Games fans in curiosity, Netflix has revealed that Sacred Games season two is going live tonight at 12.
The midnight IST release strategy for Sacred Games 2 brings Netflix in line with its global competitor, Amazon Prime Video, which has followed that release time for all its Indian originals. Other local streaming services, from Hotstar to ZEE5 and Eros Now, have also relied on midnight IST releases, which naturally makes sense when most of your audience is based in India.
For Netflix, releasing Sacred Games season 2 at midnight as opposed to in the afternoon is an exception to the rule, as the world’s biggest streaming service otherwise prefers a simultaneous Pacific Time global drop for its original content. Netflix has spent over Rs 100 crore on the series; the most any streaming service has spent on creating original content in India, according to industry experts.
People are already planning to wait-up to witness the magic of Sartaj Singh, Ganesh Gaitonde and now newly added, Kalki Koechlin, Ranvir Shorey and evergreen Pankaj Tripathi.
The first teaser was released on 7 May 2019. Netflix revealed the cast of Sacred Games Season 2 on 5 May 2019. The trailer was released on 9 July 2019. The second season will premiere on Netflix on 15 August 2019.
