Michelle Obama (Waffles+Mochi) is yet again coming to the small screen in a show described as a revelatory way of describing American Leadership through the lenses of the First Ladies. The show will focus on the first three first ladies and their impact on the American leadership, not only on the leaders themselves but also on the nation.
House of Cards ended in 2018 on its sixth episode, and since then, there has not been such a good show, but with the First Lady’s debut, we hope that the hole left in our hearts will finally be able to heal. Jane Winograde, Showtime Entertainment president, commented that the show is perfectly in ShowTime’s description of Drama and politics while still revealing how the first lady is crucial in every domestic and global occurrence.
The First Lady Season 2 Release Date:
The showrunners and the official network are yet to set the second season premiere, considering the first season is yet to be released. Season 1 premiered on Showtime on 17th April at 9 pm.
Unfortunately, Showtime canceled “The First Lady,” starring Viola Davis, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Gillian Anderson, after just one season, despite its star-studded cast and serious subject matter.
The first episode of Season 1 aired on April 17, 2022, on Showtime and Paramount+ internationally. After one season, Showtime canceled the series on August 1, 2022.
If The First Lady is renewed for Season 2 and follows the same release schedule as Season 1, fans may anticipate the series to launch in April 2023.
It is not evident how many episodes the show will have or their run time, but what remains constant is that the drama series will be worth your time and money. If the series does exceptionally well, it will get renewed for the second season, and till then, we will have to keep our fingers crossed.
The First Lady Season 2 Cast:
If the series gets renewed for the second season, which is yet to be established, we expect to see most if not all cast. Viola Davis famous for featuring How to Get Away with Murder) stars Michele Obama, the third First Lady in the first ladies’ list. Viola is the first Black woman to win the “Triple Crown of Acting,” Without a doubt, she will nail the role, giving it the justice it deserves.
Michelle Pfeiffer as Betty Ford (one of the most active first ladies politically), and Gillian Anderson from Sex Education will play Eleanor Roosevelt, the longest-serving first lady in history. Season 2 may also come bearing new faces, which will be ascertained once the second season nears its premiere.
The First Lady Season 2 Plot:
The series is legendary and a breath of fresh air as it gives us a break from another series filled with men making all the decisions each episode till the series end. Away from the West Wing pilot, the series focuses on the East Wing of the White House, which gives us an idea of how it is to be the First lady. The first season’s plot revolves around three women, Eleanor Rosevelt, Betty Ford, and Michelle Obama, focusing on their roles in making some of the world-changing decisions.
The First Lady Season 2 Trailer:
Much to fans’ disappointment, the second season trailer is yet to be out, but, in the meantime, you could consider checking out the first season trailer, which was released on 17th February 2022 on ShowTime.
It is an interesting trailer as it gives us what to expect in the show and a sneak peek of how it is being the first lady of the USA. You can also check out series of the same genre such as The Oval and House of Cards.
