‘The Governor’ is a Nigerian tv series that follows the journey of Savannah State’s Deputy Governor, Angela Ochello. When the incumbent Governor meets with his untimely demise, Angela, who in the first place never wanted to enter politics, finds herself entangled in a twisted web of political intrigue. She seeks the guidance of her trusted Chief of Staff and slowly learns to navigate the dangerous world of politics — while balancing her family duties. The series released in Nigeria way back in 2016, after which it was made available in the US on Netflix. And here’s everything we know about its next outing.
The Governor Season 2 Release Date:
‘The Governor’ season 1 released on July 1, 2020, on Netflix. It consisted of 13 episodes. Prior to its US release, season 1 of ‘The Governor’ premiered on July 7, 2016, on Ebony Life TV in Nigeria. If you see, it has almost been four years since the show’s inaugural installment concluded in its home country. And until now, there’s no word on a renewal. Moreover, if you have watched the series, you would know that season 1 is close-ended. Therefore, most likely, ‘The Governor’ season 2 is canceled. However, if the creators see a considerable jump in numbers, following its Netflix premiere (which offers a much larger audience base), we can, maybe, receive a new outing. In the rare scenario that this happens, ‘The Governor’ season 2 should release sometime in 2022.
