Hey Bartender, it’s Time for Four More Shots Please! Season 3 Arrives 2021.
When Amazon’s dramedy Four More Shots Please! arrived in 2019, it’s biggest USP was that it dealt with the unconventional story of four ‘girlfriends,’ the loves, careers, trials and tribulations of modern women as never seen before in India. In some ways, it was our answer to Sex and the City, in the most desi way possible. And whether you fall into the category of loving the show or considering it a me-too of the HBO comedy-drama, you can’t ignore the fact that Four More Shots Please! Is a welcome step in giving women more representation on the Indian screen.
Season 2 dropped in April 2020 and the storyline gave us an inkling that there’s a lot more in store for season 3 if that happened. The latest is that with the premiere of season 2, Four More Shots Please! Has become the most-watched show on Amazon Prime this year! With such a phenomenal viewership, it’s no surprise that the show has been renewed for a third season already, which is slated for release sometime next year.
“The response to Four More Shots Please! has been phenomenal; it has already become the most-watched show from India this year. The first season was one of the top three most-watched Amazon Original Series from India in 2019, and season two has set yet another benchmark”, said Aparna Purohit, Head of Amazon Originals, Amazon Prime Video India. “We are thrilled to be associated with Pritish Nandy Communications and are looking forward to another groundbreaking season.
“In the new season, the unapologetically flawed girls will face even greater challenges and stereotypes thrown at them but all the while their friendship will be their driving force”, said Pritish Nandy, Chairman, Pritish Nandy Communications Ltd. “After the unconditional love received over two seasons not only by women but men as well, together with Amazon Prime Video, we are pleased to bring our viewers the third season. The third season will pick up from where the four girls are left at the end of season two and will take forward their stories as they journey ahead in their career, relationships, love and, most importantly, the passion and beauty of their friendship!”
What do we know about season 3 so far? Well, we know that headlining cast Sayani Gupta, Kirti Kulhari, Bani J and Maanvi Gagroo will be reprising their roles and taking their character’s love lives, work and friendship to the next level. We hope to see some recurring cast like Lisa Ray, Milind Soman, Amrita Puri, Monica Dogra and Rajeev Siddhartha return as well. Some new faces are slated to join.
While the first season was directed by Anu Menon (Waiting), second by Nupur Asthana (Mujhse Fraaandship Karoge), the third will be helmed by seasoned actress Tannishtha Chatterjee. Writer Devika Bhagat is currently penning the script which takes the story forward.
