#blackAF Season 2 Release Date
Kenya Barris’ Netflix solitary comedy series #blackAF will not come back for a season 2. The agreement to renew was revealed a year ago today and has been overturned. According to Deadline, Barris is in early talks with the broadcaster about potentially turning #blackAF into a humorous movie franchise in the vein of National Lampoon’s Vacation. The conviction for the extension was reversed a year later, and the show was discontinued after one season; nevertheless, it may return as a standalone movie franchise.
#blackAF, whose cancellation as a series was announced by Barris in a THR magazine story, turns the classic sitcom household on its head. It reveals and investigates the chaotic, unrepentant, and often humorous reality of what it signifies to be a “new money” Black family attempting to make it right in a modern society where “correct” is no more a set idea.

Will #blackAF Return As A movie?
The films will accompany Barris and his TV family, featuring wife Rashida Jones, as they go on holiday, with the concept inspired by the Vacation flicks popularised by National Lampoon in the 1980s, which Barris and Jones both loved watching. Kenya Barris said in a broad conversation with the Hollywood Reporter that he and Netflix are intending to film two independent #blackAF films rather than continue with Season 2, which the streaming service had already scooped up. Both the movies are likely to be shot in Brazil and Mexico, and both are important markets for Netflix.
#blackAF Season 2 Story
Barris plays a fictitious version of himself in the series. As per the synopsis, “#blackAF explores the untidy, unfiltered, and often hilarious realities of what it requires to be a ‘new money’ black family seeking to ‘get it right in a modern world where ‘right’ is no more a set concept.”#black AF was ordered by Netflix as the very first program under Barris’ relationship with them. Netflix stated upon confirming the series’s production that it is Inspired by Barris’ hilarious, imperfect, and incredibly ethical approach to parenthood, relationships, colour, and community.
Black Excellence aims to rip back the veil and reinvent the ‘family sitcom’ in a fashion that we’ve never seen before. On Rotten Tomatoes, the program has a 46 favourable rating depending on 24 reviews, with an overall grade of 6.97/10. According to the website’s critics, “decent one-liners and some pointed societal critiques can’t redeem #blackaf from seeming more like a boring rehash than a creative stride forward for creator Kenya Barris.
