'Run The World' Renewed For Season 2 At Starz, Will Have New Showrunner

After its season finale earlier this summer, Starz has renewed Run The World for season 2.

The series stars Amber Stevens West, Andrea Bordeaux, Bresha Webb and Corbin Reed as its core four cast members. Tosin Morohunfola and Stephen Bishop are also series regulars. 

The official description: Run the World follows a group of smart, funny, and vibrant thirty-something Black women – fiercely loyal best friends – who live, work and play in Harlem. As they strive for world domination, they each navigate career highs and lows, hookups and heartbreaks that causes them to re-evaluate who they are and where they are going. At its core, it’s an authentic and unapologetic show about enviable friendship and not only surviving – but thriving together. 

The series was created by Leigh Davenport and Yvette Lee Bowser was the showrunner for the first season. We hear that Bowser is exiting the series to focus on a big slate of projects she has in development. Bowser supported Rachelle Williams taking over as Showrunner and Executive Producer and that she'll still be involved as an executive producer.

Run the World has been so passionately embraced by our audience and we are thrilled to bring fans another season,” said Alison Hoffman, President of Domestic Networks for STARZ. “Our incredibly talented cast and executive producers Yvette and Leigh are set to return, and we’re excited to welcome Rachelle back into the STARZ family leading as showrunner and executive producer.”

Run the World is produced by Lionsgate Television.
