Is Shantaram Renewed For Season 2? Or Has It Been Cancelled?

Based on Gregory David Roberts’ 2003 novel of the same name, Shantaram is an Apple TV+ original. The heroin addict and bank robber in this drama, as in the novel, escapes from an Australian prison in the 1980s and seeks refuge in Bombay. Charlie Hunnam (Sons of Anarchy) portrays the fugitive and the series’ protagonist in this version. The twelve-part series was created by Eric Warren Singer (Top Gun: Maverick) and Steve Lightfoot.

When the sought guy, who goes by the name Lin Ford, lands in Bombay, he becomes friends with a vivacious tour guide named Prabhu. This tour guide finds Lin food and shelter in this dangerous city, and they quickly become friends and establish a commercial connection. Lin makes friends with many other criminals while running from the law and develops a passionate love for them. Although Lin’s quest for forgiveness occupies the majority of the show, there are other subplots. Two competing criminal bosses are in a land battle, while another plot involves two Italian pimps and their prostitute Lisa.

The series has a 56% rating on Rotten Tomatoes despite receiving mixed reviews. Despite the fact that more people liked it, the movie received a score of 7.56 on IMDb. I thought the show was quite boring because it had a long runtime and way too many episodes for the basic plot it was trying to portray. Lin himself is portrayed as a tortured hero, which quickly becomes tedious and clichéd. The program also has numerous poorly written characters who are incredibly unlikeable and stereotypical of a flaw, as well as aimlessness. A ray of hope might be found in Prabhu, the show’s humorous sidekick, who shines in this otherwise depressing drama.

Will Shantaram get a second season? It has its supporters and its detractors.

Apple typically avoids the ugly word of the moment—cancellation—by either renewing a series or classifying it as a miniseries if they don’t see the need to produce any additional episodes. Due to their cunning strategy, they have largely avoided criticism in recent years, as opposed to Netflix and Prime Video, who have suffered from fans who hoped their priceless episodes had been carried for a little while longer.

Currently, Shantaram is in an awkward position, receiving mixed reviews from reviewers and lukewarm reception from viewers overall. Apple might classify this as a one-off, limited series and call it a day, but weirder things have happened (I’m looking at you, Surface). There was a sequel novel, and the series is a mostly faithful adaptation of the original work. Therefore, if the audience is interested, more of this story can be told. I’d be very shocked if Shantaram received a second season renewal, but the companion book, The Mountain Shadow, might persuade the streaming service to change its mind. As always, we’ll let you know if there are any developments on the upcoming renewal of Shantaram.

December 16, 2022, update – Shantaram won’t be renewed for season 2 according to Apple. The television show was canceled.
