Netflix on Tuesday revealed that the company will be sticking with the original producers of the hit television series Sacred Games for a second season. The streaming portal shared this news after conducting an independent investigation into the sexual harassment claims made against the producers of the show. Sacred Games season two has been one of the most upcoming anticipated Netflix TV series.
Earlier, the crime-oriented drama had become wrapped in the trending #MeToo movement after a woman claimed on Twitter that Varun Grover, a writer on the show, had sexually harassed her during his college days.
The woman, through an anonymous mention, shared her story on Twitter. However, Grover has denied all the charges of sexual harassment allegations made against him.
Just after the woman’s Tweet got viral, Grover responded with a detailed statement on his Twitter account and said, “Really unfortunate that these completely fabricated and defamatory allegations have been made on me. None of the sequence of events as described in that anonymous screenshot happened ever and I deny all of it with all the conviction I have in my bones.”
According to the email sent to Reuters by the company, Netflix declared that it will be standing by Anurag Kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwane whose production house was behind the creation of the Mumbai-set thriller series. The second season of the show will be scheduled to air on the streaming network and fans will be able to watch the continuation of the story.
Netflix added, “We continue to collaborate with our production partners to ensure and maintain a safe and respectful working environment.”
The streaming giant in response to the allegations had said that they were still considering their options.
“At this time, we are evaluating options on the path forward,” the company said.
