Woke is in…for another season on Hulu!
This Hulu Original is developed by Marshall Todd and cartoonist Keith Knight. The show talks about certain taboos that need to be normalized like racism, casual relationships, how the education system is broken and many more.
The pilot episode’s timing is pretty impeccable if you ask us. Turmoil brought about years of harboring toxic behaviors and people who are tired of it is working extremely hard to normalize certain aspects of society that is most likely frowned upon.
The series is jampacked with satirical jokes, psychedelic sequences and is infused with a very diverse soundtrack.
It’s one of those shows that is capable of being a wake-up call during troubled times like these while also resonating with its viewers.
Plot of Woke Season 2
The show revolves around the story of an African American cartoonist named Keef. He’s pretty much all over the place, much like most people right now. All he wants to happen is to blend his art with relevant social issues without engaging in any controversy.
Keef has a comic strip called “Toast and Butter” and it’s doing good – almost on the verge of achieving mainstream success. Things change when he gets arrested by aggressive (and low-key racist) cops while he was hanging promotional flyers. Like any normal human being, Keef is traumatized and his body’s coping mechanism is making him hear inanimate objects whisper to him.
For season two, we are expecting to see Keef struggle even more as he tries to make sense of whatever message he is trying to convey.
Where does our protagonist stand now? Will this whole activism thing make any impact at all? Or will he end up being “woke is equivalent to broke”?

So, When Will Be Woke Season 2 Be Released?
Season 1 was released on September 9, 2020 on Hulu and it consisted of just eight episodes.
The first installment delivers a strong message about dealing with being an African American in America. What made the show stand out is how the show communicates in such a delightful way – mixing comedy, live-action, animation, and brainy satire.
Woke’s manner of telling its story is the main reason why fans just flocked and how the show’s following got bigger. In addition to that, the story is inspired by the life of the show’s co-creator, Keith Knight.
Because of the go-signal that Woke has gotten from Hulu, we are hopeful that we will be seeing more episodes of this phenomenal show by Fall of 2021.
