Queen not only ruled the hearts of everyone but this series showed such magic in terms of ratings that it became an enthralling series with an IMDb rating of 8.8 out of 10.
This was more than enough for the makers to think about the second season and hence, it was finally announced that season 2 will be happening. The announcement for the upcoming installment of Queen was a piece of delightful news for everyone. It was in April 2020, when director Gautham Vasudev Menon made an official statement about reviving the series. But, even after a year of the renewal statement, we don’t have any information about the release date. However, from the time when season 2 was agreed, the coronavirus pandemic became active in India and there was a situation of lockdown everywhere. That’s why, somewhere in the preparation of the future edition, coronavirus has acted as a barrier. This might be the reason that Queen season 2 is facing a delay.
From our expectations, we look forward to 2023 when Queen season 2 can release. If anything shows up before it, we will let you know as soon as we learn more about this topic.
