Wayne: Renewed or cancelled?
“Wayne” has proven to be the ultimate underdog on and off-screen since its premiere on YouTube’s premium channel in 2019. Wayne (Mark McKenna), an irate adolescent, embarks on a dangerous road trip with his girlfriend Del (Ciara Bravo) to return his father’s stolen Pontiac Trans-Am. A chaotic, profane tale that feels like a cross between a John Green novel and “Dirty Harry” – and it was eaten by the chevaliers! It was never a problem of a shortage of fans. Instead, “Wayne” was forced to live on the streets after YouTube decided to forsake the scripted originals sector.
The show got a new lease at life when Amazon Prime obtained the streaming rights in November 2020. Since then, the show’s popularity has grown, with more people discovering Wayne and Del’s beautiful road trip adventure and those same fans yearning for more. While Amazon has not formally renewed “Wayne” for a second season, it has also not been cancelled, which is unfortunate.
As a result, the critically praised adolescent dramedy, which currently boasts a perfect 100% Rotten Tomatoes score, has been put on hold. Despite the fact that Amazon has yet to order a second season, Shawn Simmons, the show’s creator, has high hopes for the project.
Updates on Season 2
There is currently no indication of when Season 2 will broadcast because the show has not been renewed. Fans will have to wait a long time for fresh episodes even if Amazon purchases a new season. The cast has been working on a variety of projects since Season 1 premiered in 2019.
A second season will have to wait till the young actor’s schedule becomes available, because there can’t be a “Wayne” without Wayne. If “One of Us Is Lying” concludes this year, McKenna might start filming Season 2 of Wayne in the second half of 2021, giving the next season a release date of summer 2022 at the earliest.
That is, providing Amazon picks up a second season before McKenna and the other cast members go on to new projects.
What is Season 2’s expected plot?
Because it is set in Simmons’ hometown of Brockton, Massachusetts, “Wayne” is a personal story for him. As a result, he’s already written the Season 2 premiere and sketched out the rest of the season, despite the fact that he’s still waiting to hear whether Amazon wants to continue the show.
Season 2 is something that Mark McKenna would like to see happen. According to Inverse, he informed the showrunner, “The writing for the first episode of Season 2 is possibly the greatest of the ‘Wayne’ narrative I’ve seen.” “It would just be… amazing if I could make it.”
Despite the fact that “Wayne” hasn’t broadcast a new episode since 2019, fans shouldn’t dismiss the show just yet. It is the only show that can overcome the odds and return after such a long hiatus.
Season 2 Cast
Wayne wouldn’t be the same without, well, Wayne, so Mark McKenna, who portrays the titular nunchuck-wielding, motorcycle-riding bad guy with a good heart, should return to lead the way in the sequel. Due to his feelings for Del, the Bonnie to his Clyde, Ciara Bravo, who plays the vivacious teen, should be returning in the series (despite the fact that she is being sought by her father and goon-like siblings across state borders).
Ratings And Reviews
When the show was moved to Amazon Prime, it drew a significantly larger viewership and became quite successful. On Rotten Tomatoes, the show garnered a perfect score, as well as critical praise from both fans and reviewers. Based on all of the reviews, the programme has an average rating of 8 out of 10.
Wayne can hit home runs. Wayne and Del have been compared to Bonnie and Clyde by many. However, you must admit that the main characters’ sense of purpose and explanation for their rampage is more fascinating. It’s as though there’s order among the turmoil. Ben Travers of IndieWire gave the performance an A- for excellent portrayal.
In the series, Wayne and Del ride their dirt bike all the way to Ocala, Florida. The Pontiac TransAm is being sought. They encounter numerous hurdles along the route and must fight their way through. When they come upon a bunch of kids on spring break, they are mugged and left with no money. Del sells her possessions for money after Wayne decides to work. Even in his new job, Wayne runs against a boss who tries to illegally deport employees. Wayne, the decent guy who can’t take injustice, evolves into a vigilante who protects others while racking up a criminal record.
