Amazon Prime Video just released the teaser video and character posters for the latest season of their hit medical drama: Mumbai Diaries. Along with unveiling the premise of the second season, the teaser announcement also confirmed that the new season will be arriving on Amazon on 6th October, 2023. Here’s everything we know about Season 2 of Mumbai Diaries.
What is Mumbai Diaries Season 2 about?
*This section contains spoilers from Season 1.
Season 1 of Mumbai Diaries premiered in 2021, and the series became an instant hit. Documenting the gruesome realities and aftermath of the 26/11 terrorist attacks in Mumbai, this medical drama shed light on the dire state of public hospitals in India, and gave a nod to the quick-thinking and braveness of all the doctors, and other professionals who risked their lives to save the city from terror. Although the personal stories of the doctors, journalists, and other characters in the show were fictional, the premise of the show was inspired by real events.
With the first season of the series ending with the capture of the terrorists, fans have wondered what the second season of the show will center around. After two years of radio silence, Amazon Prime Video has finally given us a look into the new season by releasing a 35 second teaser video.
The teaser starts off with a news reporter narrating the events of a serious flooding in Mumbai which has led to a citywide blackout. Amidst all the chaos and water logging we get to see Dr Kaushik spring back to action as he makes his way across waterlogged streets to help injured citizens in need, and frantically darts across the halls of Bombay Hospital for more help.
Although the teaser doesn’t explicitly say so, the second season of Mumbai Diaries could be inspired by the events of the 2005 Mumbai floods. If that’s the case then this teaser poses the question of what time period is the new season set in. Will the new season be set in 2005 similar to the actual events, or will it continue off from where Season 1 ended, picking up in the late 2008/2009s.
Mumbai Diaries Season 2 Cast
In addition to the teaser, Amazon Prime Video also released a set of moody character posters revealing the main lineup for the show. The posters confirm that Mohit Raina will be reprising his role as Dr Kaushik, he is joined by Konkona Sen Sharma as Dr Chitra Das, and his tribe of young doctors played by Mrunmayee Deshpande, Natasha Bharadwaj, and Satyajeet Dubey. Actor Tina Desai will also be reprising her role in the second season as Dr Kaushik’s wife.
When is Season 2 releasing?
Mumbai Diaries Season 2 is scheduled to release on 6th October, 2023. According to IMDB the new season is set to have eight episodes. Similar to its previous season, and all other Amazon originals, the new season will continue its tradition of releasing all episodes on the premiere date itself.
As we inch closer to the release date, we can expect Amazon to release more content such as the full-length trailer and behind the scenes X-ray content soon.
