Amazon has given a second season order to Harlem.
The series about four close friends is returning for another season. After a rollercoaster of a first season, Amazon has finally handed out a second season order to the drama from Girls Trip‘s Tracy Oliver. The series follows a group of women in Harlem, New York: Camille (Meagan Good), Tye (Jerrie Johnson), Quinn (Grace Byers) and Angie (Shoniqua Shandai). Having gone through their twenties together, the group find themselves trying to navigate their thirties while living in Harlem and dealing with the bumps life has to offer along the way.
Regarding the renewal, Oliver expressed her excitement over reuniting with the cast. “When I walked into a bar in Harlem and overheard folks excitedly discussing the show, I knew we had a hit,” she said. “Harlem has resonated with so many people and I’m beyond grateful to Amazon for giving it a second season. Most of all, I’m excited to reunite with the beautiful cast.”
“Culturally relevant, critically acclaimed and hysterical, Harlem and Tracy Oliver accomplished something very special with the first season of this show. Tackling real-life strife with levity and laughs, the show means so much to our global Prime Video customers and perfectly fits the types of stories we aim to tell,” said Vernon Sanders, head of global television at Amazon Studios in a statement to the press. “We look forward to following the Season 2 journey of Camille, Quinn, Angie and Tye, and giving fans more reasons to laugh out loud as they cheer on these four dynamic Black women doing it their way. #HarlemEverAfter.”
