Following controversies over the portrayal of Tamil people and their culture and brave boycotts by politicians, Raj and DK’s Amazon Prime Video series The Family Man Season 2 will begin streaming today from midnight, the makers announced via a series of tweets on Thursday afternoon.
Raj and DK praised people for their support and praised several frontline workers, writing that it was difficult for them to keep the spirits up and make a valuable show for their audience with everything that is happening in the world. However, after a delay of a few months, the talented creators have now had the chance to present their labor of love.
So the day is finally here…
Every filmmaker has a story to tell about the highs and lows at the end of each project. For us, The Family Man season 2 has turned out to be our most challenging project yet. (1) pic.twitter.com/v8XZvVKpKN

Raj and DK called it their most challenging project, tweeting: “So the day is finally here… Every filmmaker has a story to tell about their highs and lows at the end of each project. For us, The Family Man season 2 is turned out to be our most challenging project to date. These are difficult times for all of us. There is none of us untouched by loss and suffering. As we mourn the tragic loss of lives, we are grateful for the heroic actions and courage of the frontline workers and everyone who works tirelessly to provide assistance.”
The duo’s tweets expressed their gratitude to their crew and Amazon Prime Video, reading: “For us, staying positive and optimistic was perhaps the hardest thing. The one thing that has kept us through it all is the constant love and appreciation (and the constant pressure) we’ve received from all of you. Season 2 drops at midnight. And one thing is overwhelmingly clear: The Family Man is now yours, the audience and all his fans. We remain forever humbled by all the love we have received.”
The Family Man Season 2 revolves around the intelligent officer Srikant Tiwari, played by Manoj Bajpayee, who struggles to maintain work-life balance. The show features Priyamani, Samantha Akkineni, Sharib Hashmi, Shreya Dhanwanthary and Sharad Kelkar, among others.
The Family Man season 2 will stream from June 4.
