Documentaries are a tough genre to target audiences. They receive a lot from a niche audience. However, general audiences mostly prefer watching entertaining movies. It is, thus, a hard call for makers to put money into something that may not rake in profits. On the other hand, some documentaries hit the chord. They earn money at the box office, depict the true reality of the subject, and receive critical appreciation.

Wild Wild Country Season 2 Story
Wild Wild Country follows what can easily be defined as a cult. Osho, the guru is surrounded by many controversies. He claims to have built his Utopian city somewhere in the country of Orgean. The dispute arises when certain conflicts with the locals of the city lead to the uncovering of a scandal.
The first season starts with the local’s attempt of building up a case against Osho. The series highlights the complicated relationship between Rajneesh (Osho) and his secretary Ma Anand Sheela. All of this occurs as Osho shifts his base from India. Sheela had joined Osho’s organization at the tender age of sixteen.
What brings negative attention to the organization are the highly debatable earnings. Rajneesh owning a Rolls Royce draws eyeballs, thus increasing doubt. This also ends up bringing the attention of the FBI to the organization. The story of the guru-assistant duo has various layers that can be delved into. If a season 2 goes under production, it will have a lot to depict.
