The film, was initially slated to release on August 31. The production house had earlier made the announcement on their official social media handle, "With the blessings of Lord Ganesha, 'Pisasu 2' will release worldwide on Vinayakar Chathurthi on August 31 (sic).” But if the makers go for the re-appeal according to the speculations, the release is likely to get delayed.

The film has Andrea Jeremiah in the lead along with Vijay Sethupathi in a special appearance. Mysskin was recently in the news, after a nude sequence of Andrea Jeremiah was deleted from the film. It was stated that the director wanted the film to be watched by the entire family. The rest of the star cast includes Rajkumar Pitchumani, Poorna, Namita Krishnamurthy and Santhosh Pratap.
Music for the film is by composer Karthik Raja. Cinematography is by Siva Santhakumar and editing is handled by Keerthana and Susil Umapathy.Mysskin had stated in an interview that he enjoys making films in the psychological genre as it has not been explored well.
