The second season of the show is being brought back by Guneet Monga Kapoor's Oscar-winning production house, Sikhya Entertainment and it is being directed by Saqib Pandor. The six new episodes will explore the rekindled magic between Anuj and Ritu, the central characters.

Looking back at season 1

In the first season, Ritu and Anuj tactfully navigated the emotional rollercoaster of friendship and teenage romance , diving into the diverse shades of love. The upcoming season follows their continuing journeys, as they tackle new challenges, and navigating the complexities of life, careers, and the evolving expectations they have for each other.

The story of Gutar Gu, is very close to our hearts at Sikhya. After an outpour of love for Ritu and Anuj’s short story in Gupt Gyaan, to come back together with phenomenal Director Saqib Pandor and explore the story in a series format was truly an exciting opportunity.

"With so much love and support for Season 1, we thought it was only best to see where Ritu and Anuj’s love takes them next. We’re excited to take you yet again on a nostalgic ride, exploring new challenges of teenage love in an all-new season of Gutar Gu,” she added.

Director Saqib Pandor says, “Gutar Gu started as an innocent story of two young lovers in Bhopal, but the magnitude of success and love we have received for the show and its characters on Amazon MiniTv has truly empowered us to dream of another season. That’s the best reward one can get as a filmmaker, where audiences are eager to know what’s next for their beloved characters. We’re ready for this love story, to go the distance!”
