Get ready for more colorful cartoon misadventures, as Season 2 of the hit Hulu comedy Woke officially has a release date! Announced during Tuesday’s Hulu Winter TCA slot, the entire 10-episode season will drop on Friday, April 8.
Based on real-life artist Keith Knight, Season 1 followed Lamorne Morris’ Keef, a promising cartoonist with an ever-growing popularity. While he typically keeps his work lighthearted, an incident with the police changes his worldview—so much so that his cartoons and everyday objects start to come to life in his head.
“Cartoonist Keef Knight is now a popular activist on the rise, but he’s facing 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,” states the season’s description.

Tackling heavy topics through a comedic lens, Season 2 “continues to upend Black nerd and activist culture, deftly satirizing with a wink and a smile.” Cast members T. Murph, Blake Anderson, Sasheer Zamata, and J.B. Smoove return for the show’s sophomore season alongside Morris.
Premiering in September 2020, the series, produced by ABC Signature and Sony Pictures Television Inc., was hit with production delays last summer due to the pandemic after several crew members tested positive for the virus.
Knight executive produces the series with his co-creator, Marshall Todd. Additional executive producers include Anthony King, Maurice “Mo” Marable, Richie Schwartz, John Will, Will Gluck, and Eric Christian Olsen.
