The new season, directed by Ashwini Chaudhary and produced by Juggernaut productions, will see the continuation of the intense battle between the former mentor-mentee (played by Mishra and Sharma) while dealing with complex cases that question the legal system.
Mishra will reprise his role of Janardhan Jaitley and Sharma will make a return as Niharika Singh.
