To ensure that we have plenty of new mysteries ahead for Mira, we are thrilled to begin production on a second season and can't wait to introduce her to the world in 2020."

Emmy(R) Award-nominated Sascha Paladino ("Miles from Tomorrowland") is executive producer of the series, which was developed by Becca Topol ("Elena of Avalor"), who also serves as story editor and co-producer. IW Group's Shagorika Ghosh Perkins is the series' cultural consultant and consulting producer. Additional consultants include Bollywood dancer and choreographer Nakul Dev Mahajan ("So You Think You Can Dance") and music producer Deepak Ramapriyan ("Basmati Blues").
