Here we are talking about Shantaram Season 2. Based on Gregory David Roberts’ 2003 novel of the same name, Shantaram is an Apple TV+ original. The heroin addict and bank robber in this drama, as in the novel, escapes from an Australian prison in the 1980s and seeks refuge in Bombay. In this version, Charlie Hunnam (Sons of Anarchy) portrays the fugitive and the series’ protagonist.
The twelve-part series was created by Eric Warren Singer (Top Gun: Maverick) and Steve Lightfoot (Hannibal). When the sought guy, who goes by the name Lin Ford, lands in Bombay, he becomes friends with a vivacious tour guide named Prabhu (Shubham Saraf). This tour guide finds Lin food and shelter in this dangerous city, and they quickly become friends and establish a commercial connection.
Lin makes friends with many other criminals while running from the law and develops a passionate love for them. Although Lin’s quest for forgiveness occupies most of the show, there are other subplots. Two competing criminal bosses are in a land battle, while another plot involves two Italian pimps and their prostitute Lisa (Elektra Kilbey).
Despite receiving mixed reviews, the series has a 56% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Even though more people liked it, the movie scored 7.56 on IMDb. I thought the show was quite boring because it had a long runtime and way too many episodes for the basic plot it was trying to portray.
Lin is described as a tortured hero, quickly becoming tedious and clichéd. The program also has numerous poorly written characters who are incredibly unlikeable and stereotypical of flaws and aimlessness. A ray of hope might be found in Prabhu, the show’s humorous sidekick, who shines in this otherwise depressing drama.

Shantaram Season 2 Renewed or Canceled?
Apple typically avoids the ugly word of the moment—cancellation—by either renewing a series or classifying it as a miniseries if they don’t see the need to produce additional episodes. Due to their cunning strategy, they have avoided mainly criticism in recent years, unlike Netflix and Prime Video, who have suffered from fans who hoped their priceless episodes had been carried for a bit longer.
Currently, Shantaram is in an awkward position, receiving mixed reviews from reviewers and lukewarm reception from viewers overall. Apple might classify this as a one-off, limited series and call it a day, but weirder things have happened (I’m looking at you, Surface). There was a sequel novel, and the series is a mostly faithful adaptation of the original work.
Therefore, more of this story can be told if the audience is interested. I’d be very shocked if Shantaram received a second-season renewal, but the companion book, The Mountain Shadow, might persuade the streaming service to change its mind. As always, we’ll let you know if there are any developments on the upcoming renewal of Shantaram.
Shantaram Season 2: A Quick Summary
Let’s dissect the Season 1 tale to better understand the show’s premise before diving into the specifics and rumors surrounding Season 2. While doing time in an Australian prison for robbery in the 1980s, Shantaram follows Lin Ford (Charlie Hunnam), an Australian heroin addict and criminal. Lin flees from jail and seeks asylum in Bombay (now known as Mumbai), India, recasting himself as a physician.
But when he swiftly becomes entangled in India’s criminal underworld, which ultimately takes him to Afghanistan, his old habits, addictions, and lifestyle quickly catch up with him. He teams up with a mob boss there who is engaged in a conflict with Russian gangsters.
Release Date for Shantaram Season 2
I don’t see Shantaram Season 2 happening, at least not anytime soon, if you consider everything that has been said. Season 1’s production lasted for up to seven years (or, at least, Hunnam was invested in the project personally for that long). Although various delays and changes to the creative team along the road lengthened the production, this is probably not the case for Season 2.
There is no chance that Shantaram will have a Season 2 before late 2024 or early 2025, and probably even later, given that Hunnam will need at least two years to recuperate from his back injury. That is if it ever occurs at all.
The Plot of Shantaram Season 2
What would Shantaram Season 2 be about if it were ever to premiere? Well, given that the Season 1 finale hasn’t yet aired, it’s difficult to determine where it would begin. Therefore, it would depend on how the first season wraps up and what questions it raises.
Nevertheless, given how closely the program appears to follow its inspiration, one may anticipate that Season 2 will follow a similar pattern. Consequently, the adaptation of the sequel book for the upcoming action season seems likely.
Two years after the conclusion of the first book, Shantaram, takes place, the sequel, The Mountain Shadow, is set. Most of the action occurs in Bombay after Lin loses both Karla and Kaderbhai, the mafia lord who passed away in the Afghan mountains while fighting Russian criminals.
Karla later weds a media mogul from Bombay. Lin sets out to complete the last assignment Kaderbhai gave him: to discover love, faith, and escape from everything alive while also gaining the respect of a guru from the mountains.
Cast and Crew of Shantaram Season 2
The cast and crew from Season 1 of Shantaram would probably return, except the characters who left or passed away, if Season 2 of Shantaram were to be produced. In naming the primary cast members, I’ll try to avoid giving away any surprises. Charlie Hunnam plays the lead role in the cast, and other actors include Fayssal Bazzi as Abdullah, Sujaya Dasgupta as Kavita, Antonia Desplat as Karla, Elham Ehsas as Modena, Elektra Kilbey as Lisa, David Field as Wally Nightingale, Rachel Kamath as Parvati, Alexander Siddig as Khader Khan, and Gabrielle Scharnitzky as Madame Zhou.
Trailer for Shantaram Season 2
There isn’t a trailer for Shantaram Season 2 because it hasn’t even been confirmed, much less begun development. Here, though, is the Shantaram Season 1 trailer in case you’re new to the program and haven’t yet started viewing it.
