“J’s existence and ideology re-emerge as he sets out to finish what he started, leading Avinash to confront his merging dual identity. But this time around, he has a new partner-in-crime, Victor. Kabir Sawant must now fight the battle of his life as he protects the society that has become a victim in the endgame of this crazed saga.”
The first season of ‘Breathe: Into the Shadows’ premiered in 2020 and was a sequel to the 2018 web series, ‘Breathe’, starring R. Madhavan. Although the two do not have any connection plot wise, Sadh’s character Kabir Sawant is the investigating officer in both.
Having killed four people in the previous season, J returns to eliminate six more. The mystery gets darker and deeper for Kabir who struggles to make sense of it all.
