Kenya Barris’ #blackAF has been renewed for a second season at Netflix.
In the series, Barris plays a fictionalized version of himself and Rashida Jones is his wife. The series also stars Iman Benson, Genneya Walton, Scarlet Spencer, Justin Claiborne, Ravi Cabot-Conyers and Richard Gardenhire Jr. as the duo’s children.
The official description: Loosely inspired by Barris’ irreverent, highly flawed, unbelievably honest approach to parenting, relationships, race, and culture, #blackAF flips the script on what we’ve come to expect a family comedy series to be. Pulling back the curtain, #blackAF uncovers the messy, unfiltered and often hilarious world of what it means to be a “new money” black family trying to get it right in a modern world where “right” is no longer a fixed concept.
The first season of the show featured guest stars such as Nia Long, Issa Rae, Mike Epps, Lena Waithe, Ava DuVernay, Will Packer, Tim Story, Tyler Perry, Bresha Webb, Kym Whitley and Melvin Gregg.
Barris is the showrunner and creator. He executive produces with Jones and Hale Rothstein.
