Tanveer Bookwala of Ding Entertainment created the criminal thriller web series Asur for the Voot video-on-demand network in 2020 in Hindi. Arshad Warsi, Barun Sobti, and Amey Wagh all appear in the show. The plot centers on a modern-day serial killer with a cult-like mentality. Arshad Warsi made his breakthrough on the pay-TV scene with this show.
It is set in the holy city of Varanasi, and the main character is a forensic expert-turned-teacher named Nikhil Nair, who returns to his roots at the Central Bureau of Investigation, where he and his former mentor Dhananjay Rajpoot find themselves in the middle of a deadly cat-and-mouse game.
There’s a combination of mystery, mythology, and murders that have nothing to do with one another throughout the rest of the narrative. Asur began on March 2nd, 2020 with an eight-episode season. A huge success on Voot, fans have been clamoring for Season 2 to be picked up.
Is the Asur series renewed for the second season?
So, without further ado, here is the exciting news that has aroused everyone’s attention. The second season of Asur is very certainly on the way. On September 14, 2021, our main character, Arshad Warsi, revealed through Twitter that Asur Season 2 will begin filming that day. “Good morning from Varanasi… filming for ASUR 2…” says the message. Because of this, the audience members were eager to find out more.

There is a good chance that Asur Season 2 will be renewed, and the good news is that production has already begun, which means the screenplay is finished. We’re eagerly awaiting the conclusion of this storyline. Because of all the filming and preparation, the following season will have an excellent storyline arc.
When will Asur Season 2 release?
IMDb’s Asur has an IMDb rating of 8.5 (31000+ votes), making it one of the most well-liked Hindi web series. We were expecting the second season to arrive quickly after the first, given how well-liked it was. The COVID-19 epidemic, on the other hand, forced a postponement in filming for Season 2.
By 2021, it would have officially begun on that day. Delhi is in the thick of it right now. They’re nearing the end of the first leg of the journey and will be heading somewhere new soon. Varanasi, Manali, and Delhi will serve as the locations for the web series’ second season. Season 2 of Asur should be available in the first quarter of 2022, given that filming takes four months and post-production takes approximately two.
Who will be casting for Asur Season 2?
The core cast would be the same except for the people that perished in season one. He was killed off in the first season of the show when he was playing Officer Lolark Dubey. He will most likely not return for the second season. It’s been announced that the cast members Arshad Warsi, Barun Sobti, and Vishesh Bansal will return. The following is a list of the movie’s cast:
- Arshad Warsi as Dhananjay Rajput
- Barun Sobti as Nikhil Nair
- Anupriya Goenka as Naina Nair
- Ridhi Dogra as Nusrat Saeed
- Amey Wagh as Rasool Shaikh
- Pawan Chopra as Shashank Awasthi
- Vishesh Bansal as Shubh
What to expect from the plotline for Asur Season 2?
A merciless serial killer was on the prowl, and the CBI’s Nikhil Nair (Barun Sobti) and Dhananjay Rajpoot team (played by Rajpoot) were on the case, playing cat and mouse (Arshad Warsi). The continuation of “sur-asur” or excellent vs. Season two is sure to be much more exciting because to the terrible game. As the first season shown, Shubh (the serial killer) is not the only one.
The CBI squad might face up against a gang of serial killers and crooks motivated by nefarious motives in the forthcoming season. Season 2 is going to be just as engrossing and thrilling as season 1.
