Following the success of the Amazon Original Series “The Family Man”, Prime Video has announced that it has greenlit the second season of the show, which tells a story of a middle-class man secretly working as an intelligence officer for the T.A.S.C, a fictitious branch of the National Investigation Agency.
Season 2 marks the digital debut of Tamil and Telugu superstar Samantha Akkineni who will join other cast members including India’s fourth highest civilian award Padma Shri recipient Manoj Bajpayee and National Award-winner Priyamani.
Created by Indian American film directors Raj Nidimoru and Krishna D.K., the first season was highly acclaimed by critics and audiences alike for its freshness, relevance, relatable characters and especially for blending an espionage thriller with humour and amazing family dynamics, says a statement.
A large number of people on the social media are equally curious for season 2, with many saying that the show is "one of the best spy thrillers" they've ever watched:
