The wait is almost over, The Black Hamptons will return for a second season in December.

The series is based on Carl Weber’s novel by the same name about two wealthy Black families in the Long Island, New York, community of Sag Harbor — known as “The Black Hamptons.”
The drama made its streaming debut on Aug. 25, 2022 as a four-part limited series, before premiering on the BET cable channel.
The series quickly gained a loyal following. But when it ended after four episodes, fans took to social media saying they wanted to see more.
Weber wrote an open letter to viewers about the show’s future in a Facebook post on Sept. 21, 2022. He said the drama was always intended as a miniseries, but if it brought in enough viewers, it would be elevated to a regular series for BET+.
The streamer officially renewed the series for an 8-episode second season in September 2023.
The drama is produced by Tri Destined Studios and Urban Books Media. Carl Weber created the series and serves as writer and executive producer alongside showrunner Nikaya D. Brown Jones and director Trey Haley.
Season 2 of The Black Hamptons is set to premiere with two episodes on Dec. 7, with a new episode dropping weekly.
