Harlem is coming back for a second season on Prime Video, Amazon and Universal Television announced in a recent press release.
The scripted series is created, written, and executive produced by Tracy Oliver (Girls Trip), and centers on Camille, Tye, Quinn and Angie — four single Black women pursuing their careers and searching for true love in New York City.
The dramedy is produced by Amazon Studios and Universal.
“Culturally relevant, critically acclaimed, and hysterical, Harlem and Tracy Oliver accomplished something very special with the first season of this show,” Vernon Sanders, head of global television at Amazon Studios, said in a statement. “Tackling real-life strife with levity and laughs, the show means so much to our global Prime Video customers and perfectly fits the types of stories we aim to tell.”
The series stars Meagan Good, Grace Byers, Shoniqua Shandai, and Jerrie Johnson. The cast joined Tracy Oliver, along with executive producers Amy Poehler and Pharrell Williams to share news of the season 2 renewal in a video on Instagram.
“I think we need to give the fans what they want – a Harlem season deuce!” Meagan Good said in the video.
The first season featured Good as Columbia University anthropology professor Camille, Grace Byers as trust-fund fashion designer Quinn, Shoniqua Shandai as confident yet down-on-her-luck singer Angie and Jerrie Johnson as queer dating app creator Tye. Whoopi Goldberg, Jasmine Guy, and Tamara Tunie also have roles on the series.
Season one ended with Good’s Camille telling her ex Ian (Tyler Lepley) she wanted to get back together on the night before he’s supposed to marry Mira (Rana Roy).
With the series returning for a second season, fans will find out if Ian leaves Mira at the alter or decides to rekindle his relationship with Camille.
