Produced by Goldie Behl’s Rose Audio Visuals and directed by Rohan Sippy, Duranga S2 will witness the real Sammit Patel (played by Amit Sadh) wake up from a coma and go after Abhishek Banne (played by Gulshan Devaiah), who has been living as Sammit Patel. Amit Sadh portrays a critical role, challenging Gulshan Devaiah to put everything at stake to protect his family. The three central characters' aims will collide during this season and keep the viewers on the edge of their seats. 

Archana Anand, Chief Business Officer, ZEE5 Global, said, “The success of the first season of Duranga served as a testament to the increasing appetite for thrillers on the platform. We are happy to now announce the much-awaited second season of the series for our viewers. We are confident that this season will raise the bar for romantic thrillers for viewers across the globe.” 

Nimisha Pandey, Chief Content Officer – Hindi Originals, ZEE5, said, “Building on the resounding success of Duranga's debut season, we are glad to present the sequel of this captivating romantic thriller. The upcoming season raises the thrills and the relationships become more complex, as the narrative takes unpredictable and riveting twists. As the first Indian adaptation of a Korean drama, this franchise received immense love from our viewers last year. Goldie Behl and Rohan Sippy, along with the writer Charudutt, have created an intriguing story for the sequel that we hope will entertain audiences across the globe.”

Producer Goldie Behl said, “I am grateful for the overwhelming reaction to season 1 of Duranga. I am even more excited for season 2, which is sharper, stronger, and has far more twists and turns. Season 1 ended on a cliffhanger, where we saw the character of Amit Sadh coming out of a coma. Season 2 takes off from there but in a far more complex and entertaining manner. It has been a pleasure collaborating with Rohan Sippy, Drashti Dhami, Gulshan Devaiah, and Amit Sadh, all brilliant at their craft. A heartfelt 'thank you' to ZEE5 Global and Nimisha Pandey, who have been excellent to work with. I cannot wait for the audience to savour this season.” 

Director Rohan Sippy said, “I’m very thankful that I got an opportunity to work once again with Rose and ZEE5 Global, this time to take a successful franchise like Duranga forward. The cast and crew have worked very hard in all departments to add even more excitement and emotional engagement this time around, and we can’t wait to share it with the audience very soon!”
