Over the last couple of years, original shows in India have really upped their game, we now have some of the best-in-class series and shows produced here on our soil that we can be proud of. This has been possible primarily because of influx of online streaming platforms like Netflix, Hotstar, Amazon Prime and ZEE5 among others. Even though the content streaming segment is new, India is already crowded with Over-the-top (OTT) service providers.
This also means that the competition amongst the players is fierce to stay on top in terms of both viewership and content quality. While Indians are major consumer of content from around the world, there are some Indian original shows that viewers in India just can't get enough of. So we have compiled a list of five best Indian web series sequels Indian viewers are desperately waiting for.
Topping our list is Netflix's Sacred Games! Based on Vikram Chandra’s book that goes by the same title and directed by Anurag Kashyap-Vikramaditya Motwane duo, fans love and appreciate Sacred Games for its captivating storyline. Sacred Games is a story of a Mumbai police officer who receives an unknown phone call from a gangster who threatens to blow up the entire city. Netflix has already confirmed Sacred Games season 2 is coming soon. But Netflix is yet to reveal the exact date of release.

Amazon Prime Video successfully embarked its journey in India's original content space with its first original crime series called 'Breath.' And now the fans are desperately waiting for season 2 of Breath. The first season ended with Madhavan's character, who was into murdering organ donors, to save the life of his son. The unique story plot of the first season was something never seen or heard before which is also why people have high hopes with Breath season 2.

Earlier this month, the first season of Criminal Justice dropped on Hotstar. So obviously, it's too early to expect its season 2 anytime soon. The entire story of Criminal Justice season 1 seemed so real, courtesy of some of the most underrated actors like Vikrant Massey and Pankaj Tripathi - and of course, we can't ignore the equally important character of the story played by Jackie Shroff. Criminal Justice is one of those series that start from a very simple, common-man story, which slowly but eventually end up being totally opposite.

After Sacred Games, Mirzapur is perhaps the most-talked-about web series produced in India and for many reasons: There are drama, action and revenge cliffhanger. Although we won't spoil it for you, the story is far from over (It has just begun - if we may add) and the audience is clearly waiting for its sequel. Again two of the Criminal Justice's stars - Vikrant Massey and Pankaj Tripathi, have starred in Amazon Prime Video's Mirzapur.

From the above list, TVF Pitchers is the highest-rated show on IMDb and it's also easily the most light-hearted web series focusing the startup-life of entrepreneurs. Earlier, there was a report that season 2 of TVF Pitchers has been pushed indefinitely and right now, we have no timeline when will it be out. However, TVF pitchers season 2 can be expected to release sometime this year.
