The first season of the series has been met with critical success, with the second season coming nearly two years after its release.

Season 2 is expected to pick up exactly where the previous season's finale ended things, with much of the cast returning for the continuing season. Episodes will air weekly starting June 16 in the US (June 17 in India), and will continue till August 4 in the US (August 5 in India).
