The cast of Breathe: Into The Shadows (2020) will return to reprise their roles in the third season of the thriller, which has been titled Breathe: Into The Shadows (Season 2).

The first season, simply titled Breathe (2018), was produced by Abundantia Entertainment and directed by Mayank Sharma.

Lead actor Abhishek Bachchan, who plays Dr Avinash Sabharwal — a psychiatrist in search of his missing daughter — has announced that his character’s journey will continue in the upcoming season. Nithya Menen will also be back as his wife as well as Saiyami Kher.

Sadh, who plays inspector Kabir Sawant, is one of the rare holdovers from the first season, which starred R Madhavan, while Naveen Kasturia will join the cast for the latest outing.

Sharing his excitement about the upcoming season, Sadh said, "Thriller as a genre excites the actor and a viewer inside me. Breathe: Into The Shadows is one of the most neatly written dramas, and it gives me a lot of nuances to play with while essaying my character. I am so glad to be working again on the project for its third season. It will be an exhilarating journey, and I am looking forward to it."

In a statement, Vikram Malhotra, Abundantia Entertainment’s CEO, said, "We are happy to unfold a new chapter in our journey with Amazon Prime Video with another edition of Breathe: Into The Shadows. With Mayank at the helm once again and backed by a strong team of writers, this season will see a host of new characters amp up the drama anchored in a strong emotional core. We’re excited to kick-start another enthralling season."

“Given the popularity and sheer anticipation around Breathe: Into The Shadows, a new season was imminent,” Aparna Purohit, head of originals at Prime Video India, said. “As the plot intensifies and new characters infuse raw energy into the narrative, the stakes and the thrill go higher this season. The announcement of the new season of this award-winning franchise reiterates our commitment to develop and showcase the most authentic and compelling stories from India that will transcend all geographic boundaries."

Production has already started in New Delhi and the new season is due to be released in 2022 on Amazon Prime Video.
