Rudra 2: When It Will Be Renewed?
The first episode of Rudra: The Edge of Darkness came out last week on Disney Plus Hotstar, but fans are already looking forward to what season 2 will bring.
Disney Plus Hotstar keeps showing why they are India’s most critical streaming service by putting out another great series.
Rudra: The Edge of Darkness, a drama with a lot of action and starring Ajay Devgn, was the latest original show from the streaming giant to come out on March 4.
Even though Rudra: The Edge of Darkness hasn’t been officially renewed for season 2, fans are hopeful that the new show will be as successful as Luther’s. However, it will need to take a different approach to be good.
Rudra is Set Up to Return for Season 2
As was already said, neither BBC Studios India, Applause Entertainment, Star India, nor Disney Plus Hotstar has confirmed that Rudra: The Edge of Darkness will be back for a second season.
This is true even though many recent false reports online that the producers have already confirmed that season 2 will be made. But people worldwide are sure that Ajay Devgn will eventually return as DCP Rudraveer Singh in a second exciting story.
Rudra: The Edge of Darkness is an Indian remake of the popular BBC One police drama series Luther, in which the famous actor Idris Elba played the title character, which is probably the role for which he is best known.
The original Luther series, based on Neil Cross’s books, ran on BBC One for a total of five seasons and 20 episodes from 2010 to 2019.
This means that Rudra: The Edge of Darkness can use a lot of the source material from the original Luther series to write the scripts for the next episodes.
When there is enough content to make a second season, renewals depend on how the reviews are and how much the audience wants it. This is especially true for Rudra: The Edge of Darkness, which is a reimagining of a well-known franchise.
The good news is that all the early reviews are mostly positive, and online audience reactions also seem to show that Ajay Devgn’s new series will be a hit at home (see below).
If Rudra: The Edge of Darkness is picked up for a second season, fans can expect it to come back in late 2022 or early 2023 since the first season took about 10 months to make.
But Devgn has already said that even though Rudra: The Edge of Darkness wants to be as successful as Luther, it needs an entirely different strategy to do well in the Indian market.

The Secret to Success is Less Violence
If you’ve seen the original Luther series, you know that it has very graphic scenes of violence and sexuality and other dark and mature themes.
But Devgn has already said that these are two parts of the original Luther series that need to be toned down if Rudra: The Edge of Darkness is to come back for more seasons in India.
At the press tour, Devgn said, “The show shows a very different kind of action.” It gives the audience more drama, suspense, and thrills. FirstPost reported this.
Devgn is sure, though, that his character “doesn’t feel the need to use violence as a weapon” the way Elba’s character did.
The Reviews Provide Hope for Rudra Season 2
As was already said, both fans and critics have given Rudra: The Edge of Darkness primarily positive reviews.
At the time of this writing, the series scored 7.4/10 on IMDB, which is good but not too great.
The Times of India gave Rudra: The Edge of Darkness a 3.5/5, saying that the acting was great but that the episodes were too predictable.
The Hindustan Times also says that the acting is excellent, mainly because “the actors who play bad guys give the best supporting performances.” But the review was critical of how cultural references were changed for Indian audiences, saying that “the series just doesn’t have any cultural flavor.”
Binged said that the series is a “faithful remake that works and bores just as well,” giving it a rating of 6/10.

Ajay Devgn is Returning Soon! The Producers Have Been Selected
The first Luther show was based on books by Neil Cross. It ran on BBC One for five seasons, comprising 20 episodes, from 2010 to 2019. This means that future versions of Rudra: The Edge of Darkness can use a lot of material from the original Luther series as a source.
Renewals depend entirely on how well the show is received and how much interest there is from the public. Renewals only happen when there is enough content to make a second season. This is true for Rudra: The Edge of Darkness in particular. It is a new version of a brand that is already well-known.
Early reviews have mostly been good, which is good news. And comments on the internet show that Ajay Devgn’s new show is popular. Based on how long it took to make season 1, Fans can expect Rudra: The Edge of Darkness to come back around the end of 2022. Or early 2023 if the show is picked up for a second season.
