Netflix is continuing its blossoming partnership with Black-ish creator Kenya Barris. As first reported by Deadline, the streaming service is officially renewing his latest series BlackAF for a second season.
The first season received mixed reviews from critics. Its strong social critiques and one-liners made for an entertaining spin on the formulaic single-camera comedy. Full Circle referred to the series as “captivatingly irreverent and brutally honest” in its season one review.
The filmmaker remains vague when discussing his expectations for the upcoming season in a statement to Deadline. “I won’t really, really, really get into it until we’re in the room because I want it to be fresh, but I definitely know I want to talk about real s***. We want it to be really special.” The series takes inspiration from the real world surrounding it and provides a unique window into the black American experience.
