Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK, makers of Manoj Bajpayee-starrer web series 'The Family Man', announced on Friday that the much-awaited season two of the show has been delayed. It was earlier scheduled to premiere on February 12.
In a statement posted on Twitter, the filmmaker duo said that the new season will now release in ''summer'.
“We know you have been eagerly waiting for the new season of The Family Man. We are truly grateful and humbled by all the love! We have an update for you. The Family Man Season 2 will premiere on Amazon Prime Video this summer! We have been working super hard to get you a kick*** season. And we are pretty sure you will love it. Can’t wait to bring it to you!” the statement read.
While the teaser for 'The Family Man Season 2' was posted on January 13 on several social media platforms, the trailer for the show was never released. This led to speculations that the season will be postponed.
A source close to the show had previously told PTI that its second season may get pushed due to controversy around the streaming platform's shows 'Tandav' and 'Mirzapur'.
'The Family Man' season one premiered on September 20, 2019, and received positive reviews.
The story of the Amazon Prime Video backed show revolved around a middle-class man secretly working as an intelligence officer for the Threat Analysis and Surveillance Cell (TASC), a fictitious branch of the National Investigation Agency.
