Childish Gambino has been making waves in music recently with the phenomenal “This Is America”. And the man who is Childish, Donald Glover, also writes, produces and stars in this Emmy Award-winning dark comedy, now returning for a second season on FOX on Virgin TV.
The first season follows Earn Marks (Glover, Solo: A Star Wars Story) as he attempts to get his life back on track after dropping out of Princeton University by managing the career of his rapper cousin Alfred “Paper Boi” Miles (Brian Tyree Henry, This Is Us). We get to know their wise, quirky friend Darius Epps (Lakeith Stanfield, Get Out) and the mother of Earn’s child, Vanessa “Van” Keefer (Zazie Beetz, Deadpool 2).
Season 2, subtitled Robbin’ Season, boasts more of the unconventional storytelling that fans enjoyed in season 1 – kicking off with an edge-of-your-seat robbery of a chicken restaurant that turns into a gunfight – and promises to reveal more about Beetz’s character, Van.
