READ: Whether or not Delhi Crime Season 2 is based on a true story.


Netflix’s Delhi Crime is an impressive series, the first Indian one to ever win the Outstanding Drama Series Emmy. Created by Richie Mehta, it’s a gritty police procedural that contorts real life crimes into a fictionalized account that nonetheless avoids sensationalism. The result is taut, gripping mysteries with a deep consideration for the political and social context they exist within.

While the first season concentrated on the infamous 2012 Nirbhaya Gang Rape case, the second revolves around a quadruple murder ostensibly committed by the notorious Kachcha Baniyan gang, so-called for their tendency to carry out crimes dressed only in their underwear. The five-part series is engaging but all-too-brief, meaning fans will no doubt be questioning the show’s future. Here’s everything we know.

Renewed or canceled – Will there be a Delhi Crime Season 3?

Status: TBC

While at the time of writing Netflix hasn’t officially been renewed, it does seem like work on the third season has already begun. At the very least, a tentative script is being worked on, and there’s a chance the show is already in production, though it’s hard to find official confirmation of that anywhere.

Nevertheless, if a completed script is in existence, it seems only a matter of time before we hear word of a renewal. Since the three-year gap between the first season’s debut in 2019 and the second’s release in 2022 was likely a result of the pandemic and some other considerations, the smart money would be on the show debuting at some point in late 2023 or early 2024.

It’s expected that a third season of the show would follow the same format of being inspired by real-life events and deeply connected to real-life culture and politics. One can expect that any case chosen will be grim, and probably have a deep social relevance.
