ZEE5’s Gulshan Devaiah and Drashti Dhami-starrer romantic-thriller series Duranga has been renewed for a second season, with actor Amit Sadh roped in to play a significant role in it, the streaming platform announced on Tuesday.
“Get ready to dive back into the world of suspense and intrigue! Things are about to get more thrilling and mysterious than ever before! #DurangaSeason2 coming soon on #ZEE5. Stay tuned,” the ZEE5 wrote on X (formerly Twitter) alongside a 15-second-long motion poster featuring Amit, Devaiah and Drashti.
Amit played a mysterious character in a state of coma in the first season. In the motion poster, the actor wears an olive-green cap and a hoodie and turns his gaze to the camera.
Released in 2022, the series stars Gulshan Devaiah in the role of Sammit Patel, a serial killer who is married to a detective played by Drashti Dhami. He conceals from her the fact that he is actually Abhishek, the son of a dangerous serial killer Balu (Zakir Hussain). Ira begins investigating multiple murders committed by her husband and discovers his twisted past.
The upcoming season is directed by Rohan Sippy. Pradeep Sarkar and Aijaz Khan jointly helmed the first season. Apart from Sadh, Devaiah and Dhami, it will also feature Rajesh Khattar, Zakir Hussain and Barkha Sengupta.
The series is adapted from the Korean drama Flower of Evil which revolves around Detective Cha Ji-Won and her husband Baek Hee-Sung, who tries to hide a disturbing secret about himself by disguising as a family man.
The release date for the second season of Duranga is yet to be announced by ZEE5.
