Amazon Prime Video’s The Family Man was highly regarded when it first released, and fans of the spy action thriller were looking forward to Season 2. But the show saw a lot. Recently, reports started to circulate that the show had been suspended, but the makers – Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK, crushed these rumors.
Raj and DK took their social media account and tweeted “BS!”. Now a source close to the web series has opened up about the shelf rumors. At the same time, the insider also shed light on when the show is likely to hit the OTT platform.
A source close to The Family Man 2 told Bollywood Hungama, “What Raj and DK tweeted is right. There is no way the season will be canceled. We were quite shocked when this report was released. There is no truth at all. “
With the controversy that followed Tandav’s release from Amazon Prime Video, the government stepped in and set guidelines for OTT broadcasts. As a result, there have been reports circulating that this was a reason behind the Manoj Bajpayee star’s delay in The Family Man 2. While some sources claim the makers are combing through the series thoroughly and deleting all the “ objectionable ” stuff, others are from the notion that some parts of the show are being redesigned.
However, The Family Man 2 source has stated that this information is not true. The insider said, “Nothing on the show is remade. Raj and DK have already moved on to their next web series, starring Shahid Kapoor. And no, Amazon Prime doesn’t even censor anything. There is nothing in the series that needs to be deleted. “
Explaining the delay in the season’s release, the source continues, “The OTT guidelines are now in place and to get it going, Amazon Prime is taking the time. This is the new rule and to follow it Amazon took the time and therefore decided to delay the second installment. That’s all.”
Speaking on when can we expect the second season of The Family Man, the source revealed, “It’ll be out in the summers. So expect it to be released in May or June 2021. “
The Family Man 2 stars Manoj Bajpayee, Priyamani, Sharib Hashmi and Sharad Kelkar from the first season. The show also features Darshan Kumar, Sunny Hinduja, Shreya Dhanwantary, Shahab Ali, Vedant Sinha, Mahek Thakur and Seema Biswas.
