If you follow the world of entertainment news these days, you’ve probably heard of director Taika Waititi. He’s quickly coming to prominence as a leading director in today’s industry, having already directed several critically-acclaimed films. A couple of years ago, he co-created the FX humorous television series “Reservation Dogs,” which was just renewed for a second season.
Elora Danan Postoak (Devery Jacobs), Bear Smallhill (D’Pharaoh Woon-A-Tai), Cheese (Lane Factor), and Willie Jack (Paulina Alexis) are four Indigenous kids who name themselves the Rez Dogs and dwell on a reservation in rural Oklahoma. Despite their best efforts, the Rez Dogs are unable to raise enough money to make the long journey across the country.
Season 2 of “Reservation Dogs” will hopefully provide answers to many of the remaining problems from Season 1, although the young people have already learned a lot about life and themselves in Season 1. “Reservation Dogs” returns for a second season in the fall.
Reservation Dogs Season 2: Release Date
It has been determined that “Reservation Dogs” will premiere in 2022 when the second season begins production. In 2019, Taika Waititi tweeted the news, and the first season of the new series aired in August of that year. But Season 2 is still a ways off—even if it premieres as early as next summer, we wouldn’t be surprised.”
According to a statement from FX’s president of original programming, Nick Grad, the show has been renewed for a second season.
“We couldn’t wait to share Reservation Dogs with viewers and are happy that they seem to appreciate it as much as we do. Putting in a pre-order for the upcoming year makes us pleased. With the help of Taika Waititi and his coworkers, as well as an all-star cast and crew, Sterlin Harjo created one of television’s best new comedies and a trailblazing showcase of diversity and untapped potential.
Reservation Dogs Season 2 Cast
While there hasn’t been an official declaration about the Season 2 cast, the four series protagonists, Elora, Beer, Cheese, and Willie Jack, are likely to return. Other familiar faces, like Rita Bear (Sarah Podemski), Officer Big (Zahn McClarnon), Mose (Lil Mike), Mekko (Funny Bone), and William “Spirit” Knifeman (Funny Bone), are scheduled to make appearances (Dallas Goldtooth). Keep a lookout for any official casting announcements so we can meet some new characters.
“Reservation Dogs” is creating history in the entertainment sector by becoming the first TV series to have a majority Indigenous team of writers, directors, and producers, as well as a majority Indigenous cast (per Salon) (per Salon). Harjo also discussed how they approached the original casting process to locate cast members who could properly depict persons from Indigenous-American backgrounds.
“You have to travel to these villages to discover the actors,” he remarked to Salon. “That’s all [‘Reservation Dogs’] did. Casting took place all over the place. We went and got tapes from all over Indigenous communities. The talent is there. It just doesn’t happen to be on Hollywood Boulevard.”
Reservation Dogs Season 2 Plot
Elora, Beer, Cheese, and Willie Jack are at a crossroads at the end of Season 1 of “Reservation Dogs.” When Willie Jack admits she doesn’t want to go to California after all, the other members of the group — especially Elora and Bear – dispute their objectives.
Elora and Jackie (Elva Guerra), the leader of their group’s rival gang, decide to travel to California instead, which will lead to a bigger breach between the Rez Dogs in Season 2.
Bear’s estranged father, Punkin Lusty (Sten Jodi), may potentially make a cameo appearance. In an interview with TVLine, Woon-A-Tai shared his thoughts on the possibility of his character hearing from his father in the future season: “If I’m correct, I’m confident we will. Can we expect Punkin to make a trip to Oklahoma? No, I doubt it.
I’m not even sure whether Bear will want to visit his father if the Reservation Dogs travel to California. […] What are the prospects for Punkin’s future? That’s something I can get my brain around. Honestly, I have no idea what the authors are going to come up with!” However, it’s uncertain whether or not Jodi would rejoin the project in the future.
Season 2 of “Reservation Dogs” hasn’t formally announced its release date yet, but we’re anticipating it to be just as full of laughter and tears as Season 1.
