Developed by Tanveer Bookwala's Bombay Fables Motion Picture in association with Viacom18 Studios, Asur Season 2 is expected to premiere later 2021 or early next year. Director Oni Sen has been working on the pre-production for a couple of months and has planned to shoot the entire series in a two-and-a-half-months straight schedule. Gaurav Shukla who also serves as the creator of the show has this time written the script along with Abhijeet Khuman, Abhishek Garg, and Chirag Salian.

Set in the backdrop of the mystical city of Varanasi, Asur is a unique crime thriller that pits two opposing worlds — the less explored, intricate world of forensic science and the deep mysticism of ancient Indian mythology— against each other. It follows two forensic officers from the CBI who are close on the heels to catch a psychopath killer with a twisted philosophy, deep-seated in Indian mythology. The first season was hailed as a masterpiece and the audiences are expecting the same kind of storytelling from the second season as well!
