For season 2, Vikramaditya Motwane has been replaced by Masaan director Neeraj Ghaywan.
Mumbai: Sacred Games, the Netflix Original web series, proved to be a game changer in the Indian entertainment scene. Saif Ali Khan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Radhika Apte starrer show, which is based on Vikram Chandra's 2006 novel of the same name, was Netflix’s first original Indian series. The hugely successful show seemed to have been derailed when its producer Vikas Bahl and writer Varun Grover were both accused of sexual harassment. But now, it’s back on track.
Saif Ali Khan is back to playing Inspector Sartaj Singh, a gritty Sikh cop modelled after the Mumbai Police Force’s Parambir Singh.

Motwane has been replaced by 'Masaan' director Neeraj Ghaywan to direct Sacred Games 2.
Reportedly, the second season of the show will have Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Pankaj Tripathi playing the lead roles and carrying the narrative forward.
