It’s been two weeks since Sacred games aired on Netflix and the whole internet can’t stop talking about it. The love for web series in India is on an all time high and all streaming platforms are cashing on it. Sacred games was Netflix’s debut original series in India and others are not far behind. While players like Amazon’s prime video and Alt Balaji are giving it a tough time, TVF Play also has its own dedicated niche.
No matter who stays ahead, this competition is definitely a win-win for all content lovers. If your soul also feeds on such content and you love binging shows, here are some upcoming shows to look forward to.
1. Pitchers 2
It won’t be wrong to say that Pitchers was the landmark show that paved the way for more content creators to explore the web series format. It even made it to IMDb’s list of Top 20 TV mini-series and was popularly said to be India’s answer to the show Silicon Valley
The first season of Pitchers premiered 3 years back and fans have been eagerly waiting for the new season ever since. But, unfortunately, it was put on the back burner until now becauseTVF’s CEO Arunabh Kumar, who played Yogi, was roped into controversies of sexual harassment.
2. Little Things 2
Dice Media’s Little Things completely lived upto its title and beautifully portrayed the cute little things every relationship has. It normalized live-in relationships in the Indian landscape and was widely applauded by the urban audiences.
From being #CoupleGoals to the most cheerful couple on the internet, the show’s lead Dhruv Saxena (Dhruv) and Mithila Palkar (Kavya) infused a breeze of fresh air into the series with their effortless performances. And yeah, they are coming back once again with a new season to charm us all.
Irrfan Khan starrer Gormint (previously known as Ministry) has been in the talks since the launch of Amazon’s streaming platform, Prime Video, in India. The brilliant and edgiest writers at AIB are debuting in the space with this show. It is a political satire that is expected to blow the audience’s mind.
But, it got postponed due to the ill-health of Irrfan. The actor is battling his neuroendocrine tumor in London and might come back to India later this year for the release. *fingers crossed*
4. The Forgotten Army
Kabir Khan’s project ‘The Forgotten Army’ is a five-part series that showcases the story around Subhash Chandra Bose’s Indian National Army. The show will air on Amazon prime video and is reported to be the director’s most ambitious project.
The show is in its shooting stage and we can’t wait for it to release on our digital devices.

After Anurag Kashyap’s successful start at the small screens, Zoya Akhtar is all set too with her 10 episode show ‘Made In Heaven’. The series highlights the rivalry between the two wedding firms. It is currently being shot in Delhi and is all set to hit the screens later this year.
