Does the name Ziwe Fumudoh ring a bell? No? She is a comedian based in Brooklyn who is famous for her way of incorporating satire to talk about the “uncomfortable” topics people shy away from discussing. Her popular Instagram live show “Baited” blatantly asks guests what their stand is on race. A rating of 73% on rotten tomatoes indicates that the reception of the series is not as bad. Despite some terming it as “Cringe Comedy,” Ziwe has garnered views and likes from the public, more so the black community and they cannot wait for the second season release.
Ziwe Season 2 Release Date: When Will it Premiere?
Will the series grace our screens for the second time? Fans of Ziwe are beyond themselves with excitement after it was announced that the series had been renewed for the second season. The first season premiered on Showtime on the 19th of May 2021. The second season will be longer than the first, with six additional episodes. The first season took only 15 days to film but we could expect the second season to take more time considering it has more episodes than the first. Ziwe, the series creator, is also working on “The Book of Ziwe,” a comedy essay based on “The Nigerian Princess that premiered on Amazon. Considering how busy Ziwe is, knowing if the scripts are ready or when the production will start is something we will have to wait for her to tell. Given that the series will be in two installments, we expect it to premiere in the mid-half of 2022.
Ziwe Season 2 Plot: What will Happen?
Season one had Ziwe interviewing all kinds of people, from well-known public figures, entertainers such as Phoebe Bridgers to Patti Harrison, the comedian, and lastly, politicians such as Andrew Yang and Stacey Abrams. In the second season, we expect her to continue interviewing the “renowned guests.” In an interview with Deadline, she shared sentiments of her ability to view everyone ranging from Kim Kardashian to Obama’s. She further shared that she looks forward to meeting new faces and having meaningful, compelling, and interesting conversations with them.
Ziwe Season 2 Cast: Who is returning in this season?
Ranging from serious interviews, musical performances, and comedy clips, Ziwe is a variety show bound to feature different icons. Therefore, we should expect everything and anything in the second season. However, we should expect the host of the show reprising to hold conversations that tend to be uncomfortable but meaningful. Incorporating cultural satire in late-night Tv is one of the themes that we should expect. Fans could also predict the comedian to face issues unapologetically and speak nothing but the naked truth, however brutal it can be. Ziwe said that she hopes to introduce the idea that no matter how uncomfortable it gets while talking about race and social issues, one cannot die. We expect the second season will be worth the wait!
