When will Mirzapur season 3 be released?

Amazon Prime Video gave season three the official go-ahead in November 2020 after Mirzapur became the most-watched series on the streaming platform in India, beating the likes of Breathe and Inside Edge.
Amazon executive Aparna Purohit said in a statement via Businessworld: “The overwhelming response on the new season of Mirzapur is a testament to our commitment and efforts.
“Over the last two years, viewers continued to engage with the immersive universe of Mirzapur and its characters.
“Our collaboration with Excel Media and Entertainment has always been wonderful and we are happy to share this success with them.”
Who is in the cast of Mirzapur season 3?
The main cast will be returning to the series with Victoria and Abdul actor Fazal reprising his role as Guddu after finally taking revenge on the Tripathis and becoming the king of Mirzapur.
Joining him will be Shweta Tripathi Sharma as Golu Tripathi as she too also came out on top and avenged the death of her sister.
Veteran actor Pankaj Tripathi – star of Sacred Games and Gangs of Wasseypur – is going to be returning as dethroned kingpin Kaleen Bhaiya.
Also, back in the frame will be Delhi Crime and A Suitable Boy’s Rasika Dugal as Beena Tripathi, Extraction’s Priyanshu Painyuli as Robin, Anjum Sharma as Sharad Shukla and Vijay Varma as Choti Tyagi.
There are likely to be some new faces added into the mix as season three will see fresh players added to the game.
Sadly, unless there is some sort of miracle, Divyenndu won’t be returning as Munna Tripathi after he was shot in the chest in the finale.
What will happen in Mirzapur season 3?
There have been many rumours floating about regarding season three with some suggesting Robin’s true identity is going to impact on the power struggle for Mirzapur.
Some still believe Munna is alive and is going to come back in some form or another.
Either way, there will be a huge fallout when Kaleen Bhaiya’s enemies discover he is still very much alive, considering he was betrayed by his wife Beena.
Maqbool is also likely to be under fire for helping Beena and some are wondering if he will return.
Guddu will find himself under fire after becoming the new king of Mirzapur with others eager to take power from him with some believing he could die.
The Tyagis are also likely to have a bigger role in season three with some wondering if Golu could be killed off as well as if Chote survived the shootout.
Fazal told Filmfare in a recent interview: “Now, we have a bigger challenge – to outdo the last two seasons. I will get busy with other projects now, but we plan to shoot soon.”
Sharad is going to become a huge force to be reckoned with and there could be a big power struggle as he tries to fulfil his father’s legacy by taking over Mirzapur.
Is there a trailer for Mirzapur season 3?
As the show has only just been renewed, there’s no trailer or footage at the moment.
Additionally, production hasn’t started yet but once filming does begin, there could be some teasers dropping.
Any trailers will land closer to the release date, but the cast and crew are likely to be sharing shots from the set once work begins.
