For those who might not remember, the series, which debuted in 2017, updated Spike Lee's 1986 film of the same name for the new school. Featuring everyone from Fat Joe to Hamilton's Anthony Ramos, it explores sexuality, identity, and more in a tight ten-episode structure. Since it aired, fans have been clamoring for a second season, which it looks like Netflix, Spike Lee, and company are ready to speak on now.
We have some exclusive photos from the series below, as well as the Season 2 synopsis, which you can read through below. Get excited!
A seriously sexy comedy and rousing celebration of female empowerment, She’s Gotta Have It Season 2 offers a timely and topical portrait of rising talents, with free-spirited artist Nola Darling (DeWanda Wise) at the center. Struggling with newfound success this season, against a backdrop of black art and culture, Nola must decide if she will remain true to her creative ideals or give in to the corporate world. Her journey of self-discovery helps transform the lives of those around her, including friend and sometimes lover Mars Blackmon (Anthony Ramos), who sets out to pursue his true passion of music as well as her inner circle of Opal (Ilfenesh Hadera), Greer Childs (Cleo Anthony), Jamie Overstreet (Lyriq Bent), Clorinda Bradford (Margot Bingham), Shemekka Epps (Chyna Layne) and Winnie Win (Fat Joe). Their journey expands to new destinations this season beyond their home base of Fort Greene, the vibrant Brooklyn enclave, that continues to evolve and change as gentrification remakes the neighborhood.
