Wayne is an American action-comedy television series. Starring Mark McKenna and Ciara Bravo, it premiered on YouTube Premium on 16 January 2019. This Shawn Simmons created fiction follows an angry teen boy named Wayne who embarks on a bloody road trip with his girlfriend Del to retrieve the stolen Pontiac Trans-Am of his deceased father. The show became an instant hit on YouTube, garnering millions of views within a few days of its premiere. The fans have been expecting Wayne Season 2 ever since the first season finished airing. Will there be Wayne Season 2? Will he get out of jail? Let’s have a look at everything we know so far.
Will Wayne Season 2 ever happen?
Wayne was a part of YouTube’s plan to create original content and compete with streaming giants like Netflix, Amazon Prime and Hulu. However, it didn’t work out and YouTube decided to stop investing in the original shows. As a result, Wayne got homeless.
Wayne Season 1 was added to Amazon Prime Video on November 6, 2020. It came as a big relief for the fans as they expect the streamer to renew the series for the second season.
Keeping it straight, there is no official word on the series’ renewal, as of yet. Unfortunately, Amazon hasn’t officially renewed “Wayne” for a second season yet, but the show hasn’t been cancelled either. Don’t lose hope, though. The creator, Shawn Simmons, teased and hinted in a recent interview that he has big plans for Wayne.
The team behind the series really want to go ahead with the second season. When the show was released on Amazon, showrunner Shawn Simmons and stars Mark McKenna and Ciara Bravo requested fans on their social media, saying that if the show finds an audience on Amazon, the streamer might bring it back.
Wayne Season 2 Release Date
As there is no official announcement, we can’t say anything about the release date. It depends on Amazon and the producers. Until an official announcement, we suggest you not believe in any rumour circulating over the internet.
Showrunner Shawn Simmons told Screenrant that he’s already written the Season 2 premiere and has the entire season planned out. So, it seems that when Amazon renew the series, the team might only take a few months for writing before moving into production.
Currently, the lead stars are busy with other projects. Mark McKenna, in particular, is currently involved with Peacock’s original series ‘One of Us is Lying’. The first season of the series premiered last year in October. The series has been renewed for the second season. So, Mark McKenna will be working on it at least for the next few months.
So, we are definitely not getting Wayne Season 2 in 2022. Our best bet would be sometime in 2023.
What story will the second season follow?
Mark McKenna said in an interview, “The script that you have for the first episode of Season 2 is probably the best of the ‘Wayne’ saga I’ve read. It would just be… very nice to be able to make it.” Deadpool’s writer has a lot on his mind. The storyline for Wayne Season 2 could follow any direction.
He also stated, “The whole season’s about Wayne trying to go straight, trying to earn back Del, and find the peace he deserves.” Season 2 would supposedly cover a jailbreak. Wayne would break out of the prison and reunite with Del, and who knows that he may come to terms with his feelings for her.
Wayne Season 2 Cast
As there’s not much information yet, nothing can be asserted for the cast of Season 2. In that case, we think that all the characters will return in the second season as well. Almost all the stars mentioned below will return to play their former roles.
- Mark McKenna as Wayne McCullough Jr.
- Ciara Bravo as Delilah “Del” Luccetti
- Stephen Kearin as Sergeant Stephen Geller
- James Earl as Officer Jay Ganetti
- Dean Winters as Bobby Luccetti
- Jon Champagne as Carl Lucetti
- Jamie Champagne as Teddy Lucetti
- Mike O’Malley as Principal Tom Cole
- Joshua J. Williams as Orlando Hikes
The official synopsis by Prime Video for the series reads,
“Wayne, a 16-year-old Dirty Harry with a heart of gold, sets out on a small two-stroke road bike from Boston to Florida with his new friend Del to get back the shit-hot 79′ Trans-Am that was stolen from his father before he died.”
Wayne Season 1 is available to stream on YouTube Premium and Amazon Prime Video.
