After a frustratingly long wait of nearly two years, HBO has blessed the fans of the hit comedy drama, The Righteous Gemstones, with some first-look pictures of season 2. Earlier on October 1, HBO released the first look images of the highly foreseen season 2 of The Righteous Gemstones. In addition to the Gemstone family of season 1, the photos revealed a few new faces that will likely join the show’s season 2. Read on to know more!
New additions in the cast
The first season of The Righteous Gemstones featured Danny McBride, John Goodman, Adam Devine, Edi Patterson, Cassidy Freeman, Tony Cavalero, Tim Baltz, and Walton Goggins. However, Season 2 has some new cast additions. The new recurring stars include Jason Schwartzman, Eric Andre, Eric Roberts, and Jessica Lowe.
Danny McBride created as well as executive produced the comedy-drama series besides starring in it. The nine-episode season 2 of The Righteous Gemstones will premiere on HBO and HBO max this coming winter. Check out a few first-look images below:
The comedy series The Righteous Gemstones features the story of a hypocritical family of a world-famous televangelist. Moreover, the family has a long history of vice, greed, and welfare work. Season 2 will reportedly see the gifted family menaced by the outsiders who seek to destroy them. We might expect that the new stars stated above to be outsiders. McBride once said to EW that Schwartzman plays a journalist who has a feud against biblical preachers.
As soon as the production work for The Righteous Gemstones season 2 began, the Covid-19 pandemic put a halt for it. However, recently, in an interview, Danny revealed that the break bought him some time to rework season 2. He further added that it aided him in blending the real-life events into the story. The pandemic in the lives of Gemstones is definitely going to be worth watching!
