Lifetime’s Single Black Female 2 Simone’s Revenge: Filming Sites and Cast Details

Directed by Shari Lynette Carpenter, ‘Single Black Female 2: Simone’s Revenge’ continues the story of Monica three years after the events of ‘Single Black Female,’ as she prospers in Seattle, taking strides in her career and personal life. However, she still hasn’t mentally recovered from the traumatic incidents with Simone, her half-sister. Having nightmares about her obsessive sibling’s return, Monica reaches out to her best friend, Bebe, who assures her everything is fine and reassures her to revel in her success.

Meanwhile, we discover that Simone is still alive, but is suffering from memory loss. Having begun a new life as a nun, she is doing charitable work at a Texas thrift store when a television broadcast of Monica causes all her memories to come flooding back. As Simone slips back into her murderous ways and begins to haunt Monica once more in Seattle, the Lifetime thriller film takes us across a range of urban environments, from television studios to sleek modern homes. With scenes of Seattle and Texas seemingly featured in the film, one may ponder whether shooting for the movie actually took place there.
