The third season of The Family Man is highly anticipated among the audience. The director of the series Krishan DK recently shared several updates on the show. The maker revealed that the shoot for the spy-thriller will begin soon and the series is likely to release in 2025.
The Family Man director says the third season is in the development stage
Krishna DK, the maker of spy-thrillers like Citadel was in attendance at the 8th Brahmaputra Valley Film Festival wherein he gave an interview to PTI sharing details about the upcoming show The Family Man season 3. The director said the upcoming season of the series is currently in the developing stage and a "significant portion" of it will be based on issues of the Northeast, highlighting the complex geopolitics of the region. "The third season of The Family Man is under development right now. It's been long overdue. It'll go on the floors within the next few months," said Krishna of Raj & DK duo. As the Amazon Prime Video series is set in the Northeast, a major chunk of shooting will also take place in the region, he added.
The filmmaker mentioned that the location of Reece for the series has not begun yet and that the project is in the development stage. He said, "We are yet to come and scout for locations, but that process should start soon. We will start interacting with local people here. We are still figuring out how to get things started. It's in the development phase.”
The Family Man maker shares details about The Family Man release date
Since the work on the third instalment is not finalised yet, The Family Man 3 is not expected to be released soon. When asked about the possible release date of the third season of the show, which is one of the highest-viewed OTT series in India, the director said it would be "hopefully" in 2025. "These things take a while -- post-production, release, etc. I let the studio talk about the release date. It's a long process -- shooting takes so many months, post-production takes so many more months and the release itself takes a few months," he added.
Without sharing many details about the plot, the maker admitted that Northeast India will play a major role in the series. He shared, “I'll keep it under wraps. You've seen the show – The Family Man 1 and 2. We like to go around and showcase different parts of the country and its geopolitics. In Season 1, we dealt with Kashmir, we dealt with Tamil Nadu and Sri Lanka in Season 2. This one (Season 3) I would like to keep under wraps what exactly it is about, but you get a sense of the kind of show it is. We tend to be balanced and sensitive about issues.”
