Woke is back for a second season and the fact that it includes Lamorne Morris‘s Keef Knight talking to execs about them using the phrase “Black wi-fi matters” should tell you that this is going to be a fun — and a little triggering season which debuts on Hulu April 8.
The new season finds Keef stepping into his role as an activist on the rise…or should we say “artivist”? (insert eye roll here).With that comes a world where “woke” has become big business.
Can Keef and his friends bring about real change, or is it just about the dollar$? And can Keef navigate this new world without destroying what he’s become? It’s gonna be a journey.
Inspired by the life and work of artist Keith Knight, Woke continues to upend Black nerd and activist culture, deftly satirizing with a wink and a smile. The series also stars Sasheer Zamata, T. Murph, Blake Anderson, and JB Smoove.
Woke was developed by Marshall Todd and Keith Knight. The co-creators serve as executive producers alongside Anthony King, Maurice “Mo” Marable, Richie Schwartz, John Will, Will Gluck, and Eric Christian Olsen. The series is a co-production between Sony Pictures Television and ABC Signature.
