Created by Rafael Casal and Daveed Diggs, ‘Blindspotting’ is a comedy-drama series that revolves around a woman named Ashley, who is forced to leave her house with her son Sean and move in with the mother and half-sister of her partner Miles, after he is unexpectedly arrested for possession of drugs. Ashley then has to adjust to her new life that isn’t short of confusion and an unresolvable existential crisis.
The series is a spin-off sequel to the eponymous 2018 film set six months before the events of the comedy series. The first season garnered decent reviews from critics and fans, making us wonder if there will be a second season. If you’re curious about the same, we’ve got your back. Here is everything we know about ‘Blindspotting’ season 2!
Blindspotting Season 2 Release Date
‘Blindspotting’ released on June 13, 2021, on Starz and concluded on August 8, 2021. It has eight episodes in total with a runtime of 30-34 minutes each. The show has a knack for delivering relatable content through the lens of humor without downplaying the depth of emotion.
With regards to season 2, here’s everything we know. Starz has not yet revealed any news about the possibility of the show’s return for a second season. Even if it gets the go-ahead, the network might take some time before dropping any updates. Besides, in an interview with Collider, co-creator Rafael Casal gave a few hints on what lies ahead for the show. He stated that his work resembles the “BBC model” found in the shows of the network, which means they mostly create content feasibly contained in one season.
“I think Daveed and I are very much adopters of a BBC model for shows, where we’ll make a season and the end of Season 1 of Blindspotting could be the end of the show. It could be this four-hour story, the way that the movie was a 90-minute story,” the co-creator said. However, Casal also added that if given a chance, he would surely collaborate with co-creator Daveed Diggs again to expand on the storyline. “But also, it’s so ready to have more seasons.”
At the end of the day, it all depends on the reviews of the audiences and how inspired the creators feel to carry on. Even though he wasn’t planning to get down to work right away, Casal seemed positive about its future prospects. Considering all these factors, if the show does get renewed and the production goes smoothly, we can expect ‘Blindspotting’ season 2 to release sometime in 2022.
Blindspotting Season 2 Cast: Who can be in it?
The cast of ‘Blindspotting’ comprises Jasmine Cephas Jones playing the lead role of Ashley, a woman forced to deal with the incarceration of her 12-year-long partner, Miles. Rafael Casal essays the role of Miles. Jaylen Barron portrays Trish, Miles’ half-sister who Ashley moves in with. Candace Nicholas-Lippman plays Janelle, Ashley’s friend, who returns to reconnect with her old friend and find herself. Benjamin Earl Turner portrays Earl, a young man on house arrest and perhaps, Janelle’s potential love interest.
Atticus Woodward essays the role of Sean, Ashley’s 6-year-old son. Since the main characters are integral to the story, the primary cast members are all expected to return. The supporting cast includes Helen Hunt as Miles’ mother Rainey, Justin Chu Cary as Rob, April Absynth as Jacque, Margo Hall as Nancy, Andrew Chapelle as Scotty, Lil Buck as Buck, and many more. The aforementioned cast members might also reprise their respective roles for the potential season 2.
Blindspotting Season 2 Plot: What can it be About?
The first season mostly focuses on Ashley as she tries her best to get along with Rainey and Trish. To close the emotional gap between them, they begin to do shared activities together. This leads up to Rainey and Trish convincing Ashley to spend a night with Miles within prison grounds. Sean also realizes that his father is in prison and experiences utter distress because of it.
Trish strikes a deal with Carl to open up her own business with the latter as the head of security. If renewed for a second season, we might perhaps see Trish hard at work. However, Carl might not be okay with receiving just 20% as commission. Ashley might try to work a way around the increasing distance between her and Miles, while Sean might come to terms with the real reason behind his father’s arrest.
