Reportedly, the show was delayed due to Tandav controversy. PTI quoted a source as saying, “The show has been postponed as the platform appears to be cautious. There’s nothing in season two of The Family Man that would hurt anybody but given the current scenario, to be on a safer note it has been decided to push ahead the release of the show.”
The Family Man Season 1 released in 2019. It starred Manoj Bajpayee and Priya Mani. Samantha Akkineni is the new addition.
