As the name suggests, ‘Diary of a Future President’ is based on twelve-year-old Elena Cañero-Reed’s dream of becoming the President of the United States. The series kicks off in a setting where she has successfully fulfilled her dream of achieving the country’s presidency. But she chances upon her old diary in a package, and the audiences are immediately whisked away to a flashback that showcases Elena during her preteen years. She is introduced as a bright, nerdy, and extremely talented young girl who possesses every trait that would one day give flight to her dreams.
The show is a coming-of-age comedy that stands out as something worth watching. The protagonist Elena is Cuban, which also brings in a fresh perspective on the screen. As the show’s first season charmed the audiences with its inspiring and relatable story, we wanted to know more about its upcoming season, if there is any. Is ‘Diary of a Future President Season 2’ releasing anytime soon? Here’s everything we found.
