Since its 2019 YouTube Premium debut, “Wayne” has established itself as the quintessential underdog—both onscreen and off. The show centres on Wayne (Mark McKenna), an irate teenager who sets out on a deadly road trip with Del (Ciara Bravo) to collect his deceased father’s Pontiac Trans-Am. It’s a chaotic, obscene adventure that makes “Dirty Harry” feel like someone blended a John Green book with it, and fans loved it. Never was there a fan base shortage the issue. As a result of YouTube pulling out of the scripted originals market, “Wayne” was left homeless.
Then, “Wayne” received a second chance in November 2020 when Amazon Prime purchased the streaming rights to Season 1. More viewers have discovered Wayne and Del’s breathtaking road trip experience since then, and those same viewers are clamouring for more. Sadly, “Wayne” hasn’t received an official renewal from Amazon for a second season, but it hasn’t been cancelled either.
As a result, the highly regarded teen dramedy, which has a perfect score on Rotten Tomatoes, is still in limbo. Shawn Simmons, the creator of the series, still has huge ambitions for “Wayne,” despite the fact that Amazon hasn’t formally authorised a second season. Continue reading to learn what we currently know about the probable “Wayne” Season 2.
When will Wayne Season 2 be released on Amazon?
There isn’t any information available on the release date of a potential Season 2 of “Wayne” because the show hasn’t been renewed yet. Fans may have to wait a while for fresh episodes even if Amazon orders a second season. The cast is actively engaged in different endeavours since Season 1 was first released in 2019.
In the Peacock original series “One of Us Is Lying,” which is presently in pre-production, Mark McKenna is slated to play the lead role. A second season of “Wayne” will have to wait till the young actor’s schedule is free because there can’t be a “Wayne” without Wayne. McKenna could possibly begin filming Season 2 of “Wayne” in the latter part of 2021, giving the second season a release date of summer 2022 at the earliest, if “One of Us Is Lying” wraps up filming this year.
And even then, McKenna and the rest of the actors might move on to other projects if Amazon decides to commission a second season.
Who will star in a potential second season of Wayne?
Again, “Wayne” just won’t function without Mark McKenna, therefore he’ll have to come back if a second season is produced. Ciara Bravo would also need to be involved because Del is a crucial component of the narrative. Dean Winters as Bobby, Del’s father, Jamie and Jon Champagne as Del’s twin brothers, Joshua J. Williams as Orlando, Wayne’s friend, and Mike O’Malley as Wayne’s school’s principal are more cast members who are likely to make a comeback.
All of the main protagonists survived Season 1 despite several brutal encounters, so, barring any schedule difficulties, it would make sense for the majority of the original cast of “Wayne” to return. Furthermore, a second season would undoubtedly feature a lot of new characters as Season 1 ended on a cliffhanger that Simmons stated will result in Wayne serving time in jail in Season 2.
What would Wayne Season 2 be about?
Since “Wayne” is situated in Simmons’ hometown of Brockton, Massachusetts, the narrative is particularly meaningful to him. In spite of the fact that he is still awaiting word on whether or not Amazon chooses to continue the programme, he has already written the Season 2 premiere and plotted out the remainder of the season. What comes next for Wayne and Del was discussed by the show’s creator in an interview with Inverse in November 2020.
According to Simmons, “I don’t think it gives too much away to mention that Wayne is in juvie.” Del is “at a place I’ll hold back on,” but the entire season revolves around Wayne’s efforts to turn his life around, win back Del, and find the peace he so well deserves.
Mark McKenna is hoping that Season 2 will actually happen. He informed the showrunner, according to Inverse, “The script you have for the first episode of Season 2 is perhaps the greatest of the ‘Wayne’ narrative I’ve seen.” “Just making it would be extremely great,” she said.
The fans of “Wayne” shouldn’t write off this tenacious sitcom just yet, despite the fact that no new episodes have debuted since 2019. “Wayne” has a history of defying the odds by making a comeback after such a protracted absence.
