Your LA faves will be back for another season. The Issa Rae-produced unscripted series Sweet Life: Los Angeles has been renewed for season 2 at HBO Max.
It gives “an honest and unique look into what it means to be young, Black, and in constant pursuit of one’s dreams in the heart of South Los Angeles. The series follows a group of young, strong-willed, ambitious Black friends showcasing their relatable, authentic and sometimes stumbling mid-20s moments as they embrace the joy and struggles of love and family, while building their careers as tastemakers and influencers in the city where they grew up.”
Jennifer O’Connell, Executive Vice President, Non-Fiction and Live-Action Family at HBO Max said, “We are thrilled with the success of SWEET LIFE: LOS ANGELES. The incredibly talented Issa Rae and her producing partners delivered an elevated, purposeful series, which featured the fun, inspiring and challenging moments that young adults face navigating relationships and careers.”
