With the first season having an open-ending, Netflix India was bound to bring back the critically successful show Sacred Games based on Vikram Chandra's book by the same name.

Directed by Anurag Kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwane, India's first Netflix original was subjected to memes around hawaldar Katekar (Jitendra Joshi), Ganesh Gaitonde (Nawazuddin Siddiqui), Anjali (Radhika Apte) and Bunty (Jatin Sarna).

Keeping up with the theme, Netflix, last year announced the show's renewal for a second season in the most Netflix way possible.

"Now that Sacred Games has been renewed for a second season, please stop threatening us with Bunty's 🌂"

Bunty, rather infamous for using strong language throughout the show, had become a favourite with the Indian audiences. Using the reference from the show itself, Netflix used Bunty's interaction with Malcom (Luke Kenny) to break the news of the second season.

Here's the scene if you're wondering:

Netflix's tweet induced several laughters on the desi Internet for the obvious reasons.

And Bunty was everywhere now.

The mighty umbrella.

The Radhika Apte memes were back.

The show's actors were excited.

So were we.

The online streaming platform's Instagram post received similar reactions.
