'Blindspotting' Season 2 Gets Release Date and First Look Images
New images show actors Jasmine Cephas Jones, Helen Hunt, Rafael Casal and more.
Starz just released new images from the second season of the network's hit comedy series Blindspotting. Along with the new images, a premiere date for the second season was announced, with the premiere episode set to air on April 14, 2023.
The second season of the critically acclaimed series will premiere with two episodes. The series centers on Ashley, played by Jasmine Cephas Jones, as she struggles to stay within the confines of Oakland's precarious middle class. However, when her partner of twelve years, Miles (played by Rafael Casal), is imprisoned, Ashley is forced to move in with Miles' mother and sister. In addition to Jones and Casal, the series also stars Academy Award winner Helen Hunt as Miles' mom Rainey and Jaylen Barron as Miles' sister Trish.
While tackling heavy topics and complex issues, the series still manages to maintain a fun and lighthearted tone. The series focuses on Ashley and her family's many romps as they try to make a living in the often chaotic atmosphere of the Bay Area, known for its sometimes-seemingly exaggerated wealth gap, where most extreme poverty and flamboyant wealth are concentrated. Together. The issue is: How to strike a middle ground in such a divided landscape?
The series premiered in 2021 as a sort of sequel to the 2018 film of the same name. The series is produced and written by Casal and Daveed Diggs; the duo also wrote the original film. Series star Jones also played the same character in the original 2018 film.
