BET’s Boomerang returns next week and the network has dropped the trailer for the second season, which is directed solely by women of color.
Executive produced by Lena Waithe and Halle Berry, this season’s co-showrunners are Dime Davis and Angeli Millan. Davis will direct half of the season, with the rest of the episodes helmed by Tiffany Johnson and Katrelle N. Kindred.
“This season, we really wanted to go bigger and bolder,” said Davis, in a statement received by Shadow And Act. “Keeping everything we loved from the first season and dumping the rest, we were able to find a unique approach to the storytelling in Season 2. We were given the freedom to make Boomerang our own, and Angeli and I ran with that.”
Boomerang stars S&A RISING Award winners Tetona Jackson and Tequan Richmond alongside Lala Milan, RJ Walker and Brittany Inge. Guest stars this season include Kim Wayans, Jaleel White, Walter Emanuel Jones, Nicole Williams, Cameron J. Ross, Elle Lorraine and Zoelle Griggs.
Based on the 1992 rom-com starring Berry, Eddie Murphy and Robin Givens, this series will continue to follow the lives of Jacqueline Boyer’s son, Bryson (Richmond) and Marcus and Angela Graham’s daughter, Simone (Jackson) as they try to step out of their parents’ shadows and make a legacy of their own.
Boomerang season 2 premieres on March 11.
