COLORS, popular for its diversified offerings with varied genres of content, brings back Detective Dev Burman to our TV screens, with an intense and intriguing second season of the investigative thriller Dev 2. The show follows the journey of the first season Dev. Aashish Chowdhry reprises the titular role of an investigator with a past who is challenged to be able to unravel the biggest mystery: his own life!

Dev thinks like a criminal to get to the bottom of criminal activities is at home around a crime screen, and is committed to rid the city of nefarious wrongdoers. Apart from Aashish Chowdhry, the show features Jigyasa Singh, Pooja Bannerjee, Amit Dolawat and Joyshree Arora in pivotal roles.

Speaking about the upcoming investigative thriller Dev 2, Manisha Sharma, Programming Head, COLORS, said, "Crime as a genre is big in the rest of the world but in India we have just one or two shows of such nature in the Hindi General Entertainment space. Dev is our endeavour to open up the gates to such genres. The plot is very real and youngsters and big city dwellers will be able to relate to it completely. Dev's character has been very interestingly etched out where on one hand he wants to save the world at any cost but on the other hand he must battle his personal demons. Ashish Chowdhry and the rest of the ensemble cast have done a great job portraying their characters. The show has slick production values and deals with modern day crime scenarios like stalking young girls or girls being blackmailed and forced into prostitution etc. We are very excited to put it out for the viewers."

The second season of the popular investigative thriller is the perfect amalgamation of mystery, drama, action, and emotion that presents Dev battling con artists, sociopaths, psychopaths, and revenge junkies. Further elaborating on the show, Alind Srivastava, Nissar Parvez and Rajesh Chaddha from Peninsula Pictures Pvt ltd and IMRC entertainment Pvt Ltd in a joint statement said, "The show is edgy, action-packed and filled with multiple twists that traces Dev's journey back to his past and its implications in his life in the present day. His reclusive persona and intuitive approach and most of all his tragic love life have struck a chord with the viewers that lead us to writing the second edition of the series. We hope to keep the audiences at the edge of their seats in this season as well."

As penance for acting against the law, this season shows Dev resentfully working as a Police consultant. He believes his wife being in cohorts with his estranged father, pushing their relationship in murkier territories. Not just that, he is also trying to trace his missing mother who he believes is alive. Dev now works with a new sharp, young female protégé Dhwani navigating through cases and piecing together the biggest case of his own tragic life.

A meticulous Dev, will continue to solve mysteries in his own unique ways and analyse the most perplexed situations with ease. Essaying the role of Dev, Aashish Chowdhry said, "My character has changed from season 1. Earlier Dev was known for his quirks and wit but as people have seen, he was deceived by his closed ones and carries a lot of baggage. Due to his past experiences, his behaviour has changed, and the audience will witness a whole new side of him this time. I am happy that Dev is now a franchise and we hope to continue receiving the love and support from our viewers."

Commenting on her role, Pooja Bannerjee said, "Mehak's character is multi-layered which is what draws me back to the show. I am happy to be back with Dev2 and work with the cast which is now like a family. My experience has been extremely fulfilling and I'm excited for the journey ahead."

Commenting on her role, Jigyasa Singh said, "This is the first time that I am entering a show of this genre, and it is both stimulating and challenging for me. It has been a fascinating experience shooting with the cast. I am elated to be a part of a show that has gripping content and a team of experts who have worked tirelessly to create the best on screen experience for the viewers."

Playing the role of Inspector Amod Narvekar, Amit Dolawat said, "My character, with his love and hate equation with Dev is surely one of the USPs of this season. Navrekar will display many emotions - at one end, he will have a softer or more romantic side whilst on other hand, he will be more intense and powerful. It's been a great journey since the first season and we promise to keep you enthralled with this season's gripping narrative."

With a popular star-cast and a gripping story-line, the show is expected to keep viewers on the edge-of-their-seats. Being one of the few Hindi shows in the genre, Dev 2 stands as a unique whodunit thriller series that keeps the viewer biting their nails in curiosity. Produced by Peninsula Productions, Dev 2 premiered on 25th June, and will air every Monday to Thursday at 10:30 PM only on COLORS.
