W. Kamau Bell’s CNN show just got a season 2 renewal. According to Variety, CNN has ordered an 8-episode second season of Bell’s docu-series United Shades of America, which will debut on the network sometime next year.
“I couldn’t be more thrilled to work with CNN on more episodes of United Shades of America,” Bell said on the news. “I travel a lot as standup comic, and everywhere I go, people ask me when we’ll be back for season two. I think now, more than ever, people realize that we need more platforms that demonstrate how to have productive, respectful, enlightening, and funny conversations. Also hoping now that we have a second season, I can finally meet Anthony Bourdain.” Check out our interview with Bell about the show here.
