After a long wait, The Family Man season 2 trailer is finally upon us. The makers of Manoj Bajpayee, Samantha Akkineni-starrer on Wednesday released the trailer of The Family Man Season 2, setting in motion the countdown to the premiere of the much-delayed web series.
Manoj Bajpayee’s Srikant Tiwari is not only up against the ‘new face of danger’ Raji, played by Samantha Akkineni, but life itself. His wife tells their marriage is a sham (a word that he has to google, by the way), his new boss is a catchphrase-spewing millennial and he has FOMO as he is being kept away from his calling. It is but a given that he will lose it sooner than later and give us a string of rather colourful expletives (all of it beeped though). The Family Man season 2 trailer is exactly what it promised – mounted on a bigger canvas and a whole lot of fun.
The makers said in a statement that the trailer received 5 million views in five hours and went on to become the top trend. In an interview to Indian Express, Manoj Bajpayee had said earlier that more than the reaction that the show will get from the audience, he is concerned about how the Family Man 2 trailer will be received. It seems he had no cause for concern!

The Family Man’s plotline revolves around the protagonist Srikant Tiwari, who is an intelligence officer, straddling the two worlds of domesticity and espionage. The series shows us how Manoj Bajpayee’s Srikant is an ordinary man caught in an extraordinary situation.
The Family Man Season 2 also marks the digital debut of Telugu star Samantha Akkineni, who will be seen essaying a pivotal part in the show’s sophomore season. Recently, the actor congratulated filmmakers Raj and DK for the success of their new film Cinema Bandi and asked them to release The Family Man Season 2 as soon as possible. “#cinemabandi is endearing and so full of hope. Three cheers to the team for bringing us this gem of a film….a breath of fresh air. Congratulations @rajanddk so so happy for you. Now, let’s release #thefamilyman2 (sic),” Samantha wrote on social media.
