Why was The Family Man season 2 delayed?
One week ago, directors of the series Raj and DK posted on their official Instagram account (you can follow them below), stating that the release of the second series had been postponed until summer 2021.
There has been no definitive date or reason for delay. They did state “We have been working super hard to get you a kick- season”. Expectations for the new season will be high!
However, there are reports that the premiere was delayed because of the recent controversy involving the political drama ‘Tandav’, which was accused of hurting religious sentiments.
According to a PTI source in the Hindustan Times, “The show has been postponed as the platform appears to be cautious. There’s nothing in season two of The Family Man that would hurt anybody but given the current scenario, to be on a safer note it has been decided to push ahead the release of the show.”
Rumours circulating in early March stated that the series might be cancelled altogether due to new OTT rules from the broadcast ministry. However, Raj & DK took to Twitter to retweet director, Fenil Seta’s post which shows, The Family Man 2 will is expected to release before June 2021.
