Vince Staples’ Self-Titled Netflix Show Renewed for Season Two

Vince Staples has exciting news for his fans as his eponymous Netflix series has been officially renewed for a second season. The announcement was confirmed by Variety, with Netflix subsequently sharing the news on Instagram. Staples expressed his enthusiasm for the return of “The Vince Staples Show,” stating, “The people have spoken and the most riveting, captivating, and polarizing show on Netflix is returning for season 2. Get ready for hijinks that only a mother can love. Thank you, Netflix!”

The show initially premiered with a short season of just five episodes in February. Despite Vince joking about the lack of a marketing budget, the series turned out to be a hit. The show was first announced in September 2022 and is loosely based on the rapper’s life, set in Long Beach. Staples not only stars in the series but also serves as an executive producer alongside Kenya Barris and his Khalabo Ink Society.

Before his venture into television, Vince Staples honed his acting skills with roles in the 2023 film “White Men Can’t Jump” and a recurring spot on Abbott Elementary. Reflecting on the success of his Netflix show, Staples shared, “I got to do something that isn’t really done on that network, or just done in general, with trying to break format and conventional comedy. I’m just trying some new things.”

Despite his initial surprise at the positive reception, Staples expressed gratitude for the show’s success, acknowledging his niche fan base. He emphasized his excitement for the future and other opportunities in the medium. The rapper had previously indicated his desire for a second season, urging fans to pressure Netflix for a renewal.

In response to fan feedback about the limited episode count, Staples revealed that Netflix had not purchased additional episodes, prompting him to call for fan support. Fans rallied behind the request, expressing their enthusiasm for the show’s unique and satirical approach. With the second season on the horizon, viewers can anticipate more unconventional comedy and captivating storytelling from Vince Staples on Netflix.
