The Family Man Storyline
Starring Manoj Bajpayee as the lead, he plays the role of Srikant Tiwari. Srikant is a middle-class man who secretly works for the National Investigation Agency as a top-class intelligence officer. His family is unaware of his position, and that acts as a hindrance between his personal and professional life. He is married and a father of two, and his family expects him to devote more time and cater to his responsibilities of being a Family Man. Meanwhile, he has enormous responsibilities while at work that require complete focus and determination. However, the story revolves around a man who struggles to maintain a proper balance between him being an officer and a man who has to run a family side by side.
The initial season follows his investigation against a massive terrorist attack and his attempt to keep together his family as a normal one. The debut season has 10 episodes in total with a run time of around 40-47 minimum each.
With the announcement of an upcoming season, the director of the series Raj Nidimoru said that the renewed season will follow a similar plot but will be greater and better than the previous one. They’re working to be more innovative this time and have no plans to present the new season as a sequel. The team feels that the world depicted in the show is exciting enough for them to experiment. But at the same time, it’s pretty interesting to take up the challenge of creating a project that will match up to the expectations of the viewers.
The filming of The Family Man season 2 began in November. For now, no official teaser or trailer has been released by the team or the streaming platform. Im addition, there is no such release date, but the show is expected to hit the screens by February 2021 or by mid-2021.
