Season 1 of the show was the first of its kind completely shot at home post the lockdown and it explored the paranoia that gripped everyone during the pandemic as well as the terror of facing the unknown virus.
Season 2 is said to be spanning across five episodes and it dives into the current post pandemic world where lockdown secrets are uncovered and the Gujral family (central cast of the show) is facing a more dangerous threat.

Speaking about the launch of season 2, actor Sanjay Kapoor said, “Season 1 of the show received a lot of appreciation from the critics and the audiences alike. Be it the concept or the storyline, we managed to break the iceberg and create a space in audiences’ hearts. Amidst the Covid restrictions, it was a memorable experience to shoot the series as we were backed by an encouraging cast and crew. The gripping trailer has definitely gotten me excited, and I really hope that the audiences appreciate our efforts in Season 2.”
Shriya Pilgaonkar also spoke about the show and said, “After an exciting first season of The Gone Game that we self-shot during the lockdown, Season 2 felt like homecoming, and we were excited to meet each other and actually shoot in person this time around. My character Suhani is very intriguing and pivotal to the storyline. The subsequent turn of events that unfolds in this season will be exciting for the viewers to watch. The show has a gripping suspense, and I can’t wait for the viewer’s reaction to it.”
Director Abhishek Sengupta also excitedly spoke about the show. He said, “The first show to have the pandemic central to its storyline, the first show to be crafted from the actors’ houses while the pandemic ravaged outside – The Gone Game S1 was unique in every way. The second season gave me the opportunity to work with this stellar cast and embark on a journey to tell a story about human relationships and the masks that we hide our true selves behind. A journey that was interspersed with two lockdowns. Shooting in the midst of these lockdowns presented us with unique challenges. But unique challenges give rise to unique solutions. Especially when you have a sterling set of individuals. Our actors and crew selflessly came together to make this happen and we managed to overcome one obstacle after another in our quest to put out something that the audiences would enjoy. We look forward to presenting the second season to our audiences and hope they appreciate our vision and effort. The suspense of the mysterious death is all set to be unveiled soon on Voot Select.”
