WARNING: This section contains spoilers from Mirzapur season 1
An official cast list has not been released by Amazon Prime Video but hopefully, the main cast will return, dead or alive.
Actor Ali Fazal who plays one of the shows main characters, Guddu Pandit, confirmed that he would love to return.
He told Express.co.uk: “I feel Amazon has had a very interesting connection with India because it’s suddenly spread like wildfire.“
He added: “I wasn’t surprised when that [Mirzapur] came from Amazon, I would love there to be another series but I don’t know.”
The Indian Express also reported that Fazal said in a statement: “Hopefully early next year. We are hoping to bring you back to the world of Mirzapur.
“So early next year we would, but before season two, I have some film commitments to finish both her and abroad and yeah, then after that we will begin.”
It is unclear if Dharam Veer actor Vikrant Massey will be back as Guddu’s brother, Bablu after he was killed in the season finale.
Speaking to India Today online, Massey said: “Honestly, when I started shooting for the web series, I wasn’t informed about my character’s death.
“I came to know about it after shooting for 15 days. I was a little taken aback.
“It was a well-written character and I wouldn’t have backed out, but I had no clue about this.”
Phantom star Rajesh Tailing may return as Rampant Pandit, a lawyer fighting against local injustice and the father of Guddu and Bablu.
Fingers crossed Divyendu Sharma will return as the evil Munna, the son of mafia boss Akhandanand Tripathi, played by Pankaj Tripathi.
Other returning cast members to Mirzapur include Shweta Tripathi as Golu Gupta, Rasika Dugal as Beena Tripathi, Harshita Gaur as Dimpi Pandit and Kulbhushan Kharbanda as Bauji.

What will happen in Mirzapur season 2?
It is unclear how Mirzapur season two will continue but it is likely to delve deeper into the background of the Mafia.
Akhtar said: “The characters were people that you can relate with and of course the drama.
He added: “The end of each episode was very important, it was very smartly done. It is the kind of raw, grit, drama, very rough and that is something.”
Akhtar added: “I want to say we are very excited about doing a season two and we are very much excited about who successful the first one was and hopefully, with the right people season two will be if not more [successful].”
It is possible the new series will see Guddu take revenge against the Tripathi family after Munna (played by Divyendu Sharma) killed Sweety (Shriya Pilgaonkar) and Bablu (Vikrant Massey).
However, Guddu will be under threat from Sharad (Anjum Sharma) after Guddu killed his father Rati Shankar Shukla (Shubrajyoti Bharat).
