Sacred Games is an adaptation of a rather lengthy novel but it appears the showrunner and co-creator have run through most of it. In an interview, Vikramaditya Motwane revealed that the main story of Sacred Games will conclude with Season 2, putting them in a similar spot as Game of Thrones writers David Benioff and D. B. Weiss: they’ll run out of source material. His solution to the problem though, was quite candid: “We’ll make things up”.
Motwane acknowledged that they’ve already taken a cue from Game of Thrones and diverted significantly from the book by doing a lot of things in the show that are not in the original material. Kalki Koechlin’s character in the upcoming season for instance is an entirely original creation. If they can keep the momentum going and continue to churn out detailed storylines, a Season 3 could very well be a possibility.
Some are not entirely sure though. Saif Ali Khan spoke with some skepticism, when answering the potential of future seasons, “This story ends at the end of this season. So I don’t know if they will extend it. (But) There is always scope for more”.
Motwane took a break from directing the show to focus more on the showrunning aspect. Accordingly, Neeraj Ghaywan was brought in to share directorial duties with Anurag Kashyap. Kashyap continues to direct Gaitonde’s (Nawazuddin Siddiqui) portions while Ghaywan will handle Sartaj’s (Saif Ali Khan). As always, the plot lines are expected to run concurrent but you never know what new things they could try.
